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 Iowa

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.

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was nestled in a beautiful winter wonderland the weekend my friends and I visited. It was clean and well stocked with cozy blankets, plush bedding, and great amenities in the kitchen. It was a beautiful cabin for a restful and relaxing weekend. We all fell in love with the cabin and its special story and history. We could have stayed forever!

Beautiful, cozy, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was even better than I could have imagined it was going to be. I got to spend a relaxing weekend with high school girlfriends enjoying the wood-burning fireplace, cozy living spaces, and of course lots of laughter. I don't want to tell anyone about this place because I want to be able to come back every weekend. You all do a remarkable job of being vacation rental owners. Thank you.

Perfect balance to please the whole family

  • 5 of 5

I can give the perspective of a man spending a weekend at this fantastic property. You get to build fires, are surrounded by timber and farmland, can't see a single neighbor in an direction, some of the best spring creek trout streams in the country, the place was built by hand by a man that lived here once upon a time, and maybe the best thing: honest to goodness quality time with everybody in the family, without distractions. What more can you ask for? We plan on being back, and often.
