Why Melinda chose Ironton

Our family has lived in this area for many years. We realized how beautiful the Arcadia Valley and surrounding areas are. We wanted a place for others to come and enjoy this beauty. This property offers seclusion with opportunities to kick back and relax.

What makes this cabin unique

There are two cabins on this property. This property is secluded, yet close to town and many state parks. The views are amazing from the front porch no matter what season you might stay. This would be the perfect place for you to kick back and get some much needed relaxation!

Big cabin :-) Had a lovely time.

  • 5 of 5

Brought parents, kids & hubby for getaway wkend to enjoy each other's company. Never been to the area before. So much outdoors to see/do! Was close to it all! Elephant Rocks, Fort, Shutins,etc.Food in town was quite good & little gas station 1 mile from the cabin had craft beer! Cabin was quite clean & don't show the space or rooms very well. It is sizable & comfy. Slept well in the beds. Nice & cozy! 2 areas to sit outside. One by a firepit w/ chairs which we enjoyed a lot. FYI no firewood is provided.. have to get it yourself. Found it for I tk $6 a bunch at the aforementioned gas station.. hence why i know it has good beer. There were games to play & lotsa DVDs which was fun. There are TVs to watch in 2 rooms which was great. We got to sit together and also split up. One cold morning we went outside and as the warm sun was hitting the tops of the trees the leaves started to let free from the branches one by one. it was SOOO lovely to see. We had a great time. Really nice place.Directions are SUPER easy from STL. Basically 55-67-221 &you are there. I admit I was nervous about booking b/c of the $1500 deposit upfront or pay $59 insurance fee. Hubby just came bk visit'g family in Europe. we didn't have an extra $1500 to pay the credit card company ahead of being reimbursed. My family has 2 AirBnBs & I've stayed many times US & Europe & never had to pay that much. If we did it was only a hold. That's the reason for my initial apprehension. But luckily timing was so that if we waited to book for a couple more days I would have more than enough time to get the $ bk on my credit card and not have to worry about paying it ahead. Melinda was very helpful in making this happen! I was very grateful. In fact she was very quick & responsive to all my questions which was great. It is true as some mentioned that you are supposed to 'clean up' but it really wasn't anything.Strip the sheets/dirty towel & put by laundry, put trash in can right outside the door, remove your stuff from fridge. Easy peasy!

Also you are supposed to supply your own soap & paper goods. We were only there for the wkend so it wasn't an issue. I brought PT and soap, trash bags and TP but didn't need it. Had pump soap & a start of everything else so we were good. there all week might extra.. in my experience this is expected. OH did use dish soap from home Very nice experience. If you choose to stay you will enjoy as well!Happy Travels!

We loved the open feel of the kitchen/dining room and living room. Plenty of room for our family!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is is nestled in the trees with room to sit on the deck or around the fire pit. We had plenty of room for our large family and we enjoyed our relaxing stay. We hiked the elephant rocks and played in the shut ins. (Water shoes are a must for the shut ins.) The soaking tub was nice to relax in and unwind. No cell service inside the cabin so we had to spend time together!! :) We could make phone calls at the end of the driveway by the road, so we weren't completely cut off from the family we left behind. We played games and cooked some awesome food on the gas grill and in the kitchen. My 1 year old grandson loved crawling around the cabin exploring. We stayed 2 nights and slept great in the huge master bed. Thanks for letting us enjoy your cabin!

Big three bedroom house in the trees!

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed in this house the Memorial Weekend this year. We had a family reunion, some from Iowa, others from Illinois, while still others from Louisiana. The great room was perfect for playing games, fixing big meals or just relaxing. The patio outback was shaded and perfect as the sun went down. The kitchen was well equipped and ready for use. We enjoyed our long weekend.

Wonderful family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had an amazing two days at Melinda's cabin. The location is close to so much - historic sights, state parks, great hikes - yet you feel like you have gotten away from everything when you're there! Lots of room inside for us and everything you need, plus games and movies for the kids. And we had fun roasting marshmallows at night outside! Melinda answered all of my questions quickly and everything was as described when we got there. We'll be back - thank you!
