Overview

About the property

Our hand-crafted log cabin is located on a little gravel road in a lovely rural setting just outside of Fort Atkinson, Iowa.

The main level offers an open floor plan with a spacious living room. Vaulted ceilings, log beams and a floor to ceiling lime-stone fireplace makes this living space comfortable and relaxing. Our kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Aside from dishes, pots and pans, there is also a blender, toaster, waffle maker and coffee maker. We provide a locally roasted coffee. Also included on the main level are two bedrooms featuring queen size beds. The main level bathroom features a tub/shower.

In the upstairs loft suite you will find a king size bed and private bathroom. The loft suite also includes a couch with a pull out queen sleeper.

Knotty Pine Guest House is located about 18 miles from Decorah, Iowa. Decorah was recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine's annual list of the 20 best small towns to visit in America, as well as being named in Forbes 'America's Prettiest Towns' list.

The bluff country of Northeast Iowa has so much to offer, including biking, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, kayaking, museums and shopping. There are 3 golf courses within a 15 minute radius. After a full day of activities, come back to Knotty Pine Guest House and relax in the peaceful and quiet surroundings of the bluff country. Sit on the covered front porch or enjoy the large deck.

About Jeremy & Stacy Merrill

Jeremy and I (Stacy), both grew up in the area. Although we went to the same school, we didn't get to know each other until a few years later. We have been married since 2003 and have two boys. We enjoy our life in the country and couldn't think of a better place to raise our family.

Why Jeremy & Stacy Merrill chose Fort Atkinson

This log cabin has a lot of meaning to our family. Jeremy's Dad Tim, took three years to build this cabin (1978-1981). This is the house that Jeremy's parents raised him and his brother in. It wasn't until recently that we found ourselves with an empty log cabin and decided to share it's beauty and serenity with others. We also live out on the property, which is about 140 acres, although our two houses are spread far enough apart that you cannot see one from the other. If you have any questions, feel free to email or call us at (563) 380-8762.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to say how truly nice this spot is because I want to keep it a secret!

This beautiful home has plenty of room and all of the conveniences that you could want. The location is beautiful and private.There are three nice bedrooms, a large living area, a complete kitchen and a great deck to enjoy the Iowa countryside. The entire home was spotless! Jeremy and Stacy did an excellent job of communicating with us so there were no surprises. Thanks to them for making our stay so very nice.

Wonderful Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time during our 3 day/2 night visit to the cabin! Everyone cannot wait to go back. We had a wonderful day in Decorah and thoroughly enjoyed the great countryside around the area. There are so many things to do in this region and the cabin makes a wonderful, restful base! Stacy and Jeremy have thought of everything in furnishing their rental. This is definitely a Top Tier VRBO Home!!

Gorgeous, Serene Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this wonderful cabin. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING. It was immaculate! Our family was in the area for a memorial dedication at Luther College in Decorah, IA. We are so happy that we chose this cabin as our 'compound' for the weekend. On Sunday morning (our checkout day), none of us wanted to leave!!! Our group spanned three generations and everyone loved being in the calming, natural atmosphere. We are already wanting to plan another stay!
