24722 FINLEYS LANDING ROAD. SHERRILL, IOWA Kick back and get away from it all. This unique beachfront cabin takes on many different personalities depending on which season or even the time of day. Summertime, it is a beachhouse, Fall ,it gives the feel of a cozy cabin nestled in a deep valley at the base of a bluff. The Fall foliage contrasted with the river reflecting the blue sky can be striking. Wintertime ,the stark contrast from the white snowscape outside to the warmth inside really adds to the cozy feeling. Downey Woodpeckers and other wild birds hang out at the feeder. Shopping in Dubuque is a scenic 20 minute drive on paved roads. The Master bedroom is a great place to start the new day. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the bedrooms deck and watch the river light up with the morning sun. The Master queen and the twin/full bedrooms share a toilet and pedastel sink. Downstairs is the double twin bedroom .The main bathroom features an oversized shower with a tankless water heater which provides for long showers. A full sized air mattress with built in electric pump can be placed where needed. The address for your GPS is 24722 FINLEYS LANDING ROAD, SHERRILL, IOWA

Why The Owner chose Sherrill

There is not another place like it. Beach, harbor, and cabin with spectacular view on 2 acres is unheard of. Plus it is totally remote yet 15 minutes from shopping.

What makes this cabin unique

Next door is Dubuque County's, Finleys Landing Park . 120 acres of rugged hiking. Climb the 150 foot river bluff for a spectacular view of the Mississipi River valley. For those non-hikers try a 15 minute drive to Balltown, the view from the viewing area is spectacular. While in Balltown check out Breitbachs Country Dining for a meal or drink. It is the oldest tavern in Iowa.

Awesome and memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dan's cabin is in a breathtakingly beautiful location - not to mention that the cabin itself was immaculate, well-stocked, and the property was in extremely well-maintained condition. We were blown away with how nice and clean everything was. We had a great girls weekend and I will definitley be back to this cabin sometime. If my husband is lucky he will get to come next time! HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend staying here for a wonderful ambience and memorable get-away. Thanks Dan!

Adorable cottage nestled in a valley with scenic views of the Mississippi River.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, parents, and I stayed over a long weekend at this cabin, and we had a great experience! Everything was well-stocked, clean, and ready for our arrival. The cabin adjoins a huge yard, which is equipped with a fire pit. You are not far from the river, which allowed my wife and I to enjoy some (unsuccessful) fishing. And, of course, you are not far at all from Dubuque (in case you need something), Balltown, Sherrill, and any of the other adorable towns along the Mississippi. We are already looking forward to a chance to utilize this tremendous cabin in the future.

Rustic Rural Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! Perfect if you're looking for a place "off the beaten path" while still being 20 minutes from grocery, movie, shopping (in Dubuque). It's adjacent to a sweet little campground and huge sandy area right on the Mississippi - it may be very popular locally in the summer, but mostly empty in October.

There is a busy set of train tracks right there, but didn't bother us at night at all.

Wood for the firepit was well stocked (and the gas fireplace inside was lovely), but don't expect fancy, luxury finishes. Everything is nice and solid and well taken care of, but marble tiles and jetted tubs are not for this charming getaway (though the water pressure in the shower was outstanding!)
