Overview

About the property

New 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath authenic log cabin with large covered front porch

Ellen's log cabin is 2 and a half story's. It starts with a large covered porch that looks over the valley, a great place for your morning coffee. Walk into the living room with a cathedral ceiling and stairs that lead to the loft. The loft is where the master bedroom is located with an en suite bathroom. Back to the first floor is a full kitchen with a large walk out deck that is actually in the trees. This deck has a large table for outdoor eating and BBQ grill for grilling. The lower floor has 2 bedrooms, family room (which doubles as another private bedroom) and full bathroom. From the family room you walk out to a private lower deck with a hot tub and seating. A fire pit is in the back yard surrounded by woods, very private. Do not worry about where to buy the wood for your fire, we provide it with your cabin.

We rent Ellen's by the bedrooms needed. The rate you see here is one of our seasonal rates for a couple. Additional guest is $25. per guest per night. We offer the couple rate so, a couple can come and stay without paying for all the bedrooms.

Absolutely WONDERFUL cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely return to this amazing place, so nice we didn't want to leave! The porches, hot tub and fire ring in back got plenty of use. We were a group of 8 and there was plenty of space to accommodate everyone. We did a canoe trip and this location is perfect for that, with the outfitter just one mile down the road. We put in near the springs and floated 9 miles on the upper Meramec. The take out was just down the road, making it simple to return to the cabin after a day on the river. Great trout fishing area too.

The eat-in kitchen is large and fully stocked with everything you need. One night we couldn't find a corkscrew, called Cindy and she had one for us in minutes.

The owners are absolutely great folks! They live just down the road, there if we needed them but also were happy to give our group privacy. Cindy is very friendly, great with communication all along the process. She made sure all went smooth for us during our stay.

Everyone in our group was quite impressed with this cabin. We will be back.

It is a fantastic Cabin! It was peaceful and quiet and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The property was a great place for our family to stop and reconnect from our busy everyday lives. Not only did my wife and I need it but our kids did as well. Great place away from it all to vacation.

Loved the cabin, the fire pit, the hot tub and the property in general ❤️

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great, the furnishings were nice, very roomy and homey❤️ The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms and bathrooms were a good size and overall, except for the heat outside 😩? We had a fantastic weekend!! The river was close and loved the gravel bar and shallow water for Max, who is 19 mos old. And thanks for the little kiddie pool, filled it and the water was COLD but he didn't mind, he had s blast!!! We had the upstairs bedroom and I could have used a firmer mattress, as that is what I sleep on at home. But the couch worked great for me! We all loved it and had a fantastic time! We will definitely be back 😄?

Amazing Quiet Time!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I rented the cabin for our vacation, super clean, it was so nice and secluded but not too far from town! We rarely get to spend time with each other because of our jobs so this was nice to soak up each other and the sun down at the river! We loved the hot tub and all our little frog friends but we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Archie! Hopefully next time! Also, if you're thinking of stopping at the Walmart in Cuba don't waste your time, go to Mace's Supermarket! Everyone was very friendly there, also bigger variety of food! We would totally book a stay with Cindy again! She was amazing to deal with! 10/10! Thanks again!

Ellen's Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ellen's Cabin. This is truly what you would call a home away from home. Everything was clean, secluded enough, beautiful landscaping, little to almost no traffic, and really peaceful. Thanks
