About Tami Morton

Johnny and Tami Morton purchased this little paradise in 2010 to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Both involved in multiple business ventures, it was a gift to come home in the evening and unwind in this beautiful serene setting. It was like being miles from nowhere yet close if necessary. We loved the cabin so much we decided to share it with others. We live very close and take much pride in ownership. We hope you love it and care for it the same as we do.

Why Tami Morton chose Missouri

Rebecca Lane is in the middle of nowhere, but actually close to everything. St. Louis is 45 minutes, Washington is 10 minutes, and downtown Marthasville which has practically everything you would need in 3 minutes. Why not this property????

What makes this house unique

Only log cabin of its kind in this area. Built from 10" logs. Large and spacious, lake front, woods to wander in, chimanea to watch fires in, firepit to have open fires for roasting hotdogs, smores and more, berries to pick, fish to feed, wildlife such as deer, fox, raccoons, herons, skunks, turtles, muskrats, hummingbirds and wild birds too numerous to name. A real outdoor paradise for nature lovers.

IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: The cabin is filled with taxidermy animals. WE DID NOT KILL ANY OF THESE. They were victims of traffic accidents, purchased at auctions, or donated to us by conservationists. We thought this would be a great way for adults and children alike to see wildlife up close without ever feeling the need to harm a live animal. They are also unable to grow new hair so we ask that you do not handle of pet. If taxidermy animals bother you, the cabin is probably not a good fit. Thank you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My birthday gathering was at the cabin. It was so wonderful. I highly recommend this place! Cozy, comfortable, serene! The view of the pond is so calming. I can't rave about it enough. Stay here. It's great!!

Nice spacious cabin. Great outdoor areas. Well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! It is nice and quiet there, but close enough to St Louis if we wanted to go site seeing for the day. We took our whole family there to escape all of our hectic lives for an extended weekend. It was perfect for us.

Awesome place to get away from life for awhile

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this cabin for a week and loved every minute of it. From feeding the fish in the pond to relaxing in the cozy surroundings to walking the Katy Trail and taking in some of the local wineries, this was a great place to stay. The cabin was clean and very well appointed with a full kitchen. The furniture inside and outside of the cabin was comfortable and the roomy cabin allowed for each person to have their own space to relax. Will definitely book this cabin again in the future without any hesitation!

Lovely lakeside cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay so much and found it a perfect spot off the beaten path for a family reunion. It happened to overlap the solar eclipse so Tami's cabin was ideal for viewing the rare event. I had to leave after one day, as we got word my dad was passing, but the rest of the family stayed a few more days and thoroughly enjoyed their time. We loved the feel of a real log cabin and enjoyed the decor as well. Tami was wonderful to work with and we had a great first stay in Missouri. We hope to return!

Great family getaway retreat

  • 5 of 5

So comfortable. Plenty of room for meals and card games at the kitchen table. The cabin is large enough to find a quiet spot for a nap. Adults and children were entertained feeding the fish and watching wildlife. The Morton's have thought of everything and were excellent to deal with.

Beautiful getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cabin in a lovely spot. We met another couple here and enjoyed time here for relaxation and conversation. The cabin was very comfortable and we had everything we needed for cooking. Temperatures soared into the humid mid-90's while we were there so we didn't spend much time outside except in the very early morning or late evening but the cabin stayed cool. It was a delight to feed the fish and to watch for wildlife. The windy country roads about the area are so beautiful to explore. We appreciated being able to have our dog with us too.
