A Little Bit of Serendipity: June 2009

  • 5 of 5

The Mississippi Hillside Cabin can be compared to the Keokuk Geode. It may not look like much from the outside but one you get inside, it SPARKLES & SHINES! The owner has planted a variety of blooming plants and shrubs with lawn ornaments scattered throughout the property. The clutch of ducks wander down during the day to the water inlet coming off the Mississippi River to take a dip. You can sit outside on the deck and watch the barges slowly troll up & down the river. At night, there are thousands of lightning bugs flashing off & on. If you look up, the fireflies are Mother Nature's display of little, white holiday lights outlining & running throughout the boughs of the trees. Then there is the Milky Way's stellar show shining down upon you! Gorgeous. Peaceful. It must be spectacular during a meteor shower! Inside the cabin, there is plenty of room for a family of four. My son of 21 years said I "did good" in selecting this place to stay for 3 nights.The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes & silverware. The owner checked to make sure we had clean towels if we needed them. It was just the right amount of hospitality. The sun rises early in the summer, around 5:00, so if you are not a morning person you may want to bring a sleeping mask. If you are a morning person, the sun rising over the river will perfect in getting you off to an early start to explore the geode display at the Holiday Inn or play one of the disc golf courses in Rand Park or across the river in Illinois. You can explore the dam and watch a barge go through the locks or take a drive along Grand Avenue to admire the majestic, historic homes. The stain glass windows in St. John's Episcopal Church, including 3 angels made by Tiffany, are exquisite! My 19 year old daughter's one request on our 4,525 mile trip was to get photographs of her and her brother under the state signs saying "Welcome to ..." which in Keokuk means you can get photographs of Iowa, Missouri and Illinois signs. Whether you choose to explore the tri-state area where the Mississippi River is at it's widest or just find a quiet place to rest, relax and do nothing, the Mississippi Hillside Cabin is a great place to call you "HomeAway" from home.

Owner's Response: I just want to thank all of my guests that have come here!!!!! I've been so lucky they all have cleaned up the rental before leaving. And it is great meeting new people. I've had cute little notes from the kids saying they didn't want to leave and some call it their home away from home. They love feeding the ducks & chickens. The ones that come back seem like old friends. I'm going to put a comment book over there. So if anyone wants to leave a note or send me a picture it would be great. Thanks again ! Julie

I rented this property for my parents fory daughters graduation. The setting is so peaceful and quaint. We grilled and sat watching the ducks and boats. They really enjoyed the cabin and slept great.

Wonderful location and very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Super friendly and a very nice place. Close to town but exclusive location makes it seem like you are miles away from anything. Very quiet and peaceful. House has everything you need and more. Couldn’t ask for anything else

Julie is accommodating. Her rental is quiet and has a terrific view.

  • 4 of 5

Don't expect luxury, but the price for the convenience of the location and the beautiful view is well worth it. Great alternative to staying at a hotel if you're in Keokuk, or just need a break from a busier pace! Thanks so much, Julie!

So cool!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights, and this was the perfect place for my family to stay! I just wish we had more that a couple days to really enjoy everything in the area.

Loved the Mississippi Hillside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had s family reunion in Hamilton therefore we wanted somewhere comfortable to stay. We live in Florida. The Hillside cabin was just great for 5 nights! Julie was just wonderful! We mentioned to Julie that my husband was allergic to perfumes and she said that that was good to know because she likes to make the sheets and towels smell good and fresh! We brought our own sheets and towels just in case but didn't need them because she went above and beyond and washed in fragrance free detergent and didn't use scented softener. We enjoyed the solitude that this cabin brings. We also had a great time at family reunion seeing relatives that we hadn't seen in years! Thanks again!
