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.

Best friends' getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Knotty Pine Guest House was wonderful! Who would've thought we'd find refreshment and restoration in the middle of a cornfield?! But we certainly did. Completely lovely, and we hope to return!

Just what we needed for a short getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The Knotty Pine guest house was an isolated quiet cabin. Spacious but also very cozy. Loved the architecture!

Lovely log cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean log cabin guest house privately situated for a perfect getaway. Our hosts thought of everything we could possibly need and then some. Located close enough to area attractions to make excursions easy, but far enough outside of town to truly unplug and feel like you're on vacation! Thank you Stacy and Jeremy!

Fabulous! Wonderful, relaxing retreat home!.

  • 5 of 5

This home provided just what we needed before gearing up for the routine of another school year. We enjoyed the beautiful log cabin and the rich family history behind it. The decor added to the comfortable, welcoming feeling we experienced as we walked in the door. We enjoyed our day trip into Decorah and a trip to Harmony to Estelle’s Eatery and Bar (highly recommended). Thanks for sharing your family’s home. We will be back!
