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 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.

We enjoyed your beautiful cabin with food, fun, and friends. The weather was not nice but we were thankful to have such a wonderful place to talk and play games. We found it to be clean and well stocked. Thank you.

Welcoming, beautiful and just right!!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 8) stayed at the cabin the end of April. The cabin was perfect! The area is quiet and tucked away off a gravel road. During our stay we found it easy to relax and enjoy the area. Meyer Lake is nearby, a great area to hike

and fish, we were there everyday! We also drove to Decorah for some trout fishing, explored a waterfall and cave. The best times were at the cabin, relaxing, playing games, kite flying, campfires, yoga and exceptional coffee (supplied by the cabin owners!) After our stay we had to have some of the coffee to take home so we visited, Impact Coffee Roasters in Decorah.

We highly recommend you choose this cabin. We all want to come back next year!

There is just something really special about this cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed at the Knotty Pine, and we have already booked another stay later in the year.

There is just something really special about this cabin. We met our mom and dad here for a little get away. My mom loves this part of Iowa because her family was originally from here, and this cabin was an added blessing to our weekend.

The cabin is very cosy, comfortable, very clean, and decorated so nice. One gets a sense that Stacey had fun decorating it, with her guests comfort in mind.

We had a weekend of fire in the fireplace, putting two puzzles together, watching movies, baking fresh oatmeal cookies, and taking some long walks down to the main road.

If you don't feel like staying in and cooking, there is The Fort just two miles away in Fort Atkinson. We all were very pleased with our food, and then also, don't forget to go to Horsfalls Mercantile in Lansing--don't let the outside fool you--it is a blast to look for treasures. Also, the IGA in Lansing has the best chocolate covered bridge mix.

Anyway, back to the cabin...it is a treasure. If you are thinking of booking it, don't wait, because if you wait too long, you will miss out.

That's because there is just something special about this cabin...
