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.

Tami Morton purchased this house in 2010

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!!

Log cabin

Our family had a wonderful time at the cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed the restful nature around the cabin. The kids enjoyed feeding the catfish in the small lake. Look forward to coming back in the future.

It was wonderful to be out in the country , away from the big city

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the stay , was big enough for all 2 families. 8 total ppl and 2 bathrooms with everyone getting a bed. We would come back and rent this exact cabin again. Enjoyed the lake and all the animals on the walls. We even spent 2 days looking for the hidden stuffed snake . The kids loved the canoe and feeding the fish that seemed so friendly and unafraid of people. People around the cabin were very friendly. The huge kitchen table was a big plus for us to all sit around whenever we ate .

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for being an awesome guest. We do hope to see you again sometime. Sorry about the scavenger hunt for the snake. Had to re-home him due to the negative feedback from other guests.:(. I am afraid of snakes but I must admit I thought he was pretty cool. Have a great day.

Amazing house and property.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best stay we have ever had anywhere. The house, the location, the property was amazing. The best thing about it was the owner who contacted us to see if we needed anything and gave us contact Incase there were problems. We will be going back.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was for my bachelorette weekend!! It was beautiful an we had an amazing time! There was 2 windows left open up stairs. That thank gosh no critters got inside. We do think you need a pizza cutter and cookie sheet!! Overall beautiful area and beautiful cabin

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome review and for staying with us. Congrats on your new journey in life. The housecleaning staff or the window cleaning service must have left the windows open accidentally which is surprising as they are normally very diligent. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Consider the cookie sheet and pizza cutter furnished now thanks to you. Thank you again for staying and maybe on your next visit you can bring you new husband:)

Beautiful location & cabin

  • 4 of 5

We decided on this cabin for a mini family reunion of six adults and one child. It was spacious and had everything you'd need to cook, serve, and entertain a big group. My five year old son loved exploring the lake and wooded area. He also really enjoyed feeding the catfish and finding freshwater mussels shells left behind behind raccoons. We didn't take the boats out but they were provided. It really is a wonderful place for children to play and explore. If you don't like taxidermy, this is not the place for you. We turned it into a scavenger hunt and my son counted 66 items that used to be living, lol. He thought it was great. The stairs to the second floor are VERY steep. We had one older person in our group that could not do them. Fortunately, it was no issue for the rest of us and the handrails felt very secure. Cell service was non-existent in parts of the property (we are on AT&T) and wi-fi was slow but we were there to disengage with the rest of the world anyway. The location feels remote but it is only a ten minute drive to Washington. There is a winery (Lake Creek) within two miles that served good German food. It was an hour drive to the St. Louis zoo and maybe two miles to the Katy Trail. The best part is the owner, Tami, who was quick to respond to questions. Don't hesitate to rent this cabin for your next family get-together.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback. I love the taxidermy but seeing the high count, I am considering taking some away. You and your family were awesome guests. Thanks again for staying with us and remember the cabin is beautiful in all four seasons.
