“Not what we expected!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2010

Never met the staff - except a cleaning person who gave me the key since no one else was around. The door was locked at 9:30 Sunday morning when we went to check out (left the key on the porch in a pot). The "outside fire" is a spot in the grass someone cleared and put some wood. The inside was actually nice - I can say that. The view was of a tin roof and motor homes. Not much in the town at all. Not sure if the recession killed it or just small town USA. People in the town were very friendly. We spent the day shopping in Galena and a movie in Dubuque - there really was nothing else to do. Galena is about 40 minutes away and Dubuque is 20 minutes away.
The country side in the part of Iowa is beautiful!!!

We "won" this through a local newspaper auction and I planned it for our 12th wedding anniversary.

We were looking for a last minute getaway on the Mississippi River. Lucked out finding these cabins. They were comfortable, very clean and cozy. The beds were great and the views were wonderful. You can lay in bed and watch the river! We were able to bring our boxer with us which was a treat. The only down side would be the street construction if your going during the week but it wasn't an issue for us since we were there on a holiday weekend. I'm sure once they are done it will be ideal. The coffee shop in town had amazing coffee too. I told them my normal drink at Starbucks and the made a tastier version! We will be going back!

First off the staff are extremely professional and friendly. If you get a chance, take a look at the Mont Rest which is also owned by the same owner. You might even want to stay there. Inside the cabin you will find it smelling great and very clean. It has an awesome automatic fireplace to warm the cabin. There is even an outside fireplace. The view when looking out from the cabin is of the river with fishermen and barges going by. It was classic, very Huck Finn. The only drawback is it isn't right on the river but the other pro's far outweigh any con's. In particular there is even iced glasses in the freezer for your favorite beverage! Also the owner has a restaurant in town(3 blocks away) which has very good food and even better prices. Last thing is the owner, a lady named Chris is a very special and unique person who ties all of it together, it's no wonder everything is well done.
