Overview

About the property

Our hand-crafted log cabin is located on a little gravel road in a lovely rural setting just outside of Fort Atkinson, Iowa.

The main level offers an open floor plan with a spacious living room. Vaulted ceilings, log beams and a floor to ceiling lime-stone fireplace makes this living space comfortable and relaxing. Our kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Aside from dishes, pots and pans, there is also a blender, toaster, waffle maker and coffee maker. We provide a locally roasted coffee. Also included on the main level are two bedrooms featuring queen size beds. The main level bathroom features a tub/shower.

In the upstairs loft suite you will find a king size bed and private bathroom. The loft suite also includes a couch with a pull out queen sleeper.

Knotty Pine Guest House is located about 18 miles from Decorah, Iowa. Decorah was recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine's annual list of the 20 best small towns to visit in America, as well as being named in Forbes 'America's Prettiest Towns' list.

The bluff country of Northeast Iowa has so much to offer, including biking, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, kayaking, museums and shopping. There are 3 golf courses within a 15 minute radius. After a full day of activities, come back to Knotty Pine Guest House and relax in the peaceful and quiet surroundings of the bluff country. Sit on the covered front porch or enjoy the large deck.

About Jeremy & Stacy Merrill

Jeremy and I (Stacy), both grew up in the area. Although we went to the same school, we didn't get to know each other until a few years later. We have been married since 2003 and have two boys. We enjoy our life in the country and couldn't think of a better place to raise our family.

Why Jeremy & Stacy Merrill chose Fort Atkinson

This log cabin has a lot of meaning to our family. Jeremy's Dad Tim, took three years to build this cabin (1978-1981). This is the house that Jeremy's parents raised him and his brother in. It wasn't until recently that we found ourselves with an empty log cabin and decided to share it's beauty and serenity with others. We also live out on the property, which is about 140 acres, although our two houses are spread far enough apart that you cannot see one from the other. If you have any questions, feel free to email or call us at (563) 380-8762.

A most enjoyable family Thanksgiving in the country. Serene, beautiful landscape, and cozy home.

  • 5 of 5

Our Thanksgiving stay at Knotty Pine Guest House was most enjoyable for the entire family. We were blessed with three days of unseasonably warm, sunny weather so a sightseeing jaunt into Decorah was one of the highlights of our stay.

Accommodations were everything we could have hoped for, and all efforts to provide top notch amenities were most appreciated. Beds were extremely comfy, kitchen fully stocked with all necessities, and housekeeping immaculate. This spacious log home is comfortable, charming, and tastefully turned out.

We plan to return during the summer season to enjoy some of the biking trails this area offers. Thanks again to the owners!

Beautiful cabin in the country. Clean, spacious and had all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the cabin. What a beautiful, cozy, quiet property. We will definitely be back during the summer and fall to enjoy the outdoor life with fire pit. Could not have asked for a better weekend stay with family.

It's perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful area and log cabin! Our hosts were helpful and kind and responsive before and during our stay! The cabin was beautifully decorated and clean. The furniture set up great for chatting in front of the fireplace...complete with blanket throws in a basket by the fire. The large stone fireplace and log interior was warm and furniture cozy. The beds so comfy and the Views out all the windows brings the outdoor - indoors! The kitchen was extremely well equiped with lots of cooking/baking space. The kitchen table perfect for meals and game space. The bathrooms meticulously clean and plenty of towels and supplies! In short we loved our stay and hope to return and highly recommend to everyone!
