Overview

Photos and Description of the Alma vacation cabin rental

1 Bedroom, Plus Loft, With Stunning Views Of Backwaters Of The Mississippi River

Open year-round! Nestled between the small riverside towns of Alma and Nelson, Wisconsin, The Great River Retreat Guest House sits on the backwaters of the Mississippi. What once was a day cabin with no running water or electricity to speak of, was completely remodeled in 2013. Every detail was considered, from the hand-scraped wood floors, the Amish rough sawn pine ceiling, the natural stone marble counter tops, the real stone slate surrounding the free-standing wood stove (there to keep you cozy on a cool night), to the screened-in deck with stunning views of the calm Mississippi backwaters and the trains passing by. You’ll feel like you just escaped into paradise.

The cabin sleeps six people comfortably in it’s one bedroom and large loft area. Enjoy incredible views as the sun rises and sets, and watch as the fisherman and water skiers go back and forth during the day. You’ll also have access to the water and use of our dock so that you can fish, swim, or just relax. Experience what it’s like to stay at a truly unique place. (ask about availability of Pontoon or Jet Ski Rental)

If this place seems a little to tight check out VRBO Listing: 821489 as this is the Main House adjacent to the property that is now available for rent.

Stay on the backwaters of the Mississippi River and enjoy gorgeous views of the water, trains passing by, and the abundant wildlife. Take a day trip to explore the many wineries in the area and wine taste your way up and down the Great Mississippi River Road. While you're here you can hike up to Buena Vista Park and experience the stunning view from a top the bluffs of Alma, WI. Or, if you'd rather, take a nice drive along the river to soak in views of the bluffs, wildlife, and river. Another must see is the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN, featuring live eagles. If you're visiting us in the winter don't forget to bring your skis, snowboard, or snowshoes. If you like fishing, we've got that too! So again, if it's winter, pack your ice shack and warm clothes and Flotty will show you where all the fish are biting. We've also got great biking trails and roads if you are a cyclist. If you like boating, kayaking, canoeing, or just about any other water sport we've got the perfect location for you to do all of those things as well. Feel free to bring your boat and tie it up at our dock or ask us about renting the Pontoon or Jet Ski, Into golfing? Yes, we have that too! Like campfires? Perfect, we've got a great fire pit for having a fire and roasting s'mores. To experience something really unique, add Suncrest Gardens to your list. Suncrest Gardens has the best pizza in the area, live music many nights, and a nice fire to keep you warm as the evening fades away. Only catch is you have to bring your table, chairs, plates, napkins, and silverware but no worries you can borrow ours. You can also explore the many small river towns along the Mississippi, do some shopping, eating, or antiquing. Lastly, if you love deep-fried cheese curds, or if you have no idea what those are, than you must go to Pioneer (a 10-minute boat ride) and you'll have the best hand-battered white cheese curds Wisconsin (or anywhere else) has to offer. Not to mention, the Saturday night prime rib that melts in your mouth. Please also visit our website and visit our Facebook page for the latest happenings:
