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.

This is such a beautiful and serene home.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best and most relaxing time at this home away from home. Perfect get-a-way. No traffic or noise...lots and lots of stars and a few forest animal noises. The accommodations were perfect and spotless...we'll be back.

Perfect with total relaxation.

Perfect getaway for a couple or getting together with family. The cabin had everything you would need with Decorah minutes away. The cabin is in a peaceful setting and very comfortable, even the beds. Stacy Merrill was very helpful with any questions. I would definitely stay again!

My sister and I loved this cabin! The location was perfect for relaxation and it was fun to be in the country. The cabin had everything you could need and then some. We look forward to visiting again and if they're lucky, we'll bring our other sisters too! Thanks for everything Stacy. Your cabin is a treasure!

Immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed this cabin immensely. It had everything we could possibly want and need for our three night stay. The kids loved the fire pit and the kitchen was perfect for meals in. It has such a cozy feel and all the little touches make it feel like 'home'. We will be back!
