An original log cabin on 7 acres with a small lake in the front yard. Sleeps 8 in beds and 10 maximum capacity. More wildlife than imaginable. Every time of day brings out different animals and birds. Built for family gatherings and fun. Enjoy swimming in the lake and feeding the catfish. Enjoy local historical places, Ride the Katy Trail, do some local shopping, and be sure to visit awarding winning historical downtown Washington 10 miles away.
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
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????
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.
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!!
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin in the woods. Very nice accommodations and in such a peaceful setting. The kitchen has everything you need. Washington is only about a 10-15 minute drive away. Thanks for sharing your place!
Our niece was recently married in Washington Mo. We have had great experiences with renting large homes for our extended family to be together for special events like this. For this trip we had three couples from out of town. This log home was a perfect match for our needs.
Each couple had their own bedroom. The kitchen table was large with plenty of seating for our family. The kitchen had everything we needed to make tasty meals at home. We enjoyed having access to the grill. We had a perfect fall weekend. We spent a lot of our time outside enjoying the lake, the view and hiking around the area.
We went to the local grocery store in Marthasville to get the basic food items when we arrived. The store had most of the things we needed. For lunch we found a great pizza place in Marthasville. We enjoyed the small town experience. Washington was a short drive away with lots more shops and restaurants to explore.
Tammy was very helpful and responsive in answering all the questions we had. Really liked the welcome book. Covered everything we needed to know about the home and the area.
Perfect home for a small family gathering or weekend retreat from city life.
The beds are comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked, the location is peaceful and pretty. We really enjoyed our weekend here.
We( 5 adults) stayed here for 13 days in September/October 2016. The Cabin was as advertised. Very clean and well stocked. Plenty of room for everyone. I would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
The property sits in a quiet neighborhood; no other homes are visible from the house, giving a secluded feel. The biggest reason we chose this property is that the owner welcomes dogs. We stayed here while attending a week-long event at Purina Farms, about 30 minutes away. It gave us the desired sense of "getting away from" the chaos of the event while remaining reasonably convenient. The photos are accurate: there is some deferred maintenance but it was clean and we did not note any safety issues (as noted by other reviewers). Our biggest downside, traveling with dogs, was that the property was not fenced nor did it have a fenced dog walk area. However, the owner was very forthright about this prior to our booking so it wasn't a surprise, just something we had to adjust our routine around. There is a lovely winery, Lake Creek Winery, literally around the corner from this property that has a beautiful hilltop setting, welcoming owners and staff, and a nice restaurant option. The nearby town of Washington has shopping available for whatever you forgot to pack (Wal Mart, Target, PetSmart, grocery stores, etc.). Overall, we had a great travel experience: the property was accurately described in the listing and the owner was readily available to answer questions.
We travel with several other couples every fall. It is a great way to unwind from our professional lives and unwind. We would always head to Table Rock or Kentucky Lake so we could enjoy the presence of a lake.
I found this home and it was 50 minutes from St. Louis instead of the normal 4 hours. A beautiful cabin on a lake and soooo customer friendly. It was updated, had everything you needed and the detail our host provided was over and above.
The lake had catfish that were like pets. You could feed them from the deck (food provided of course) and they just seemed to thankful as they waited patiently for their treats. WE CAN NOT WAIT TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR!
