Despite the fact that it rained the entire time we were there we loved it. It was quiet and peaceful. The cabin is so clean and inviting. Perfect for a gateway for a few days. We will be back and hopefully will see the sun next time.

We booked this cabin for a stay 3/4-3/7 as a relationship retreat/engagement celebration. We saw the pictures and they looked "okay", but when we got here we were so incredibly impressed. The pictures just don't do the place justice. The design of this cozy cabin is so intelligent and the decor is warm and inviting. To lay it out in an easy format:
most comfortable bed in the world
satellite TV and internet
well equipped kitchenette (micro, large mini fridge, toaster oven, toaster, electric skillet, cups, plates, etc)
pet friendly (nominal fee)
private hot tub
patio and front porch with lounge chairs
bbq grill and fire pit with wood provided
on site INCREDIBLE relaxing massage availability (for a fee)
on site breakfast delivery (for a fee)
sweet resident dogs roaming the property
just a little over an hour from St. Louis City
Wonderful Host (Cindy is the BEST!)
great water pressure in the shower
Boat launch to river is just over a mile down the road
Flower garden (we are waiting for the weather to get nice to come back and see it in bloom!)
two properties to share amongst a larger group/family
nearby attractions include wineries, zip lining, floating/canoeing, and more!
You'll never want to leave. We had no intentions of coming back until summer. Here we are, back at the cabin literally two weeks to the day of our first trip. Now we're addicted and already planning more stays at the cozy cabin and the newly built log home with some friends. Our dogs are more relaxed here than at home!
Pro tip: If you like to cook (we're total foodies), we invested in a portable induction burner we bring with us so we have the option of a burner.
Cindy is a great host. We enjoyed our stay, came and went as we pleased, didn't feel like we were under surveillance like some other places, and when we needed something - she was right there ready and willing to help.
We read some other reviews where others who has stayed enjoyed the breakfast served by Cindy but we choose to cook our own at our leisure so I can't vouch for the quality. I'm sure it's delicious.
We stayed two nights - saw the Little River Band in Steelville on Friday night. When we got back from the concert we slipped into the hot tub, enjoyed some wine and marveled at the stars. Nice place. Totally recommend it.
My husband and I stayed three nights in the cabin. We defiantly could of stayed longer. The cabin is so cute and equipped with the basics and also many extras. The owners go all out to make sure your time there is wonderful. From firewood to BBQ charcoal to bird seeds. The river is within walking distance and is a beautiful spot. We can not wait to stay at the cabin again.
