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.

Breathtaking and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with your cabin. I’ve been researching the whole way home trying to find something like this to own. Great quiet location and absolutely beautiful inside. We really enjoyed the comfy bed in the loft and our children liked their own space on the main floor. Lots of space to play and relax. You have a real gem! Thank you for sharing your home with us. We look forward to visiting again.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet. Not even the faint sound of cars in the distance. This was true quiet. Hear birds quiet. Listen to leaves in the wind quiet.

And the house was gorgeous. Clean. Super comfy bedding. Big tv with cozy seating. Lovely fireplace. Amazing windows and views.

We will be back. Loved it.

Beautiful, cozy, clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect, cozy cabin. The cabin itself is stunning. The three bedrooms were spacious and comfy. We spent our mornings drinking the fresh, local coffee provided and sitting by the fireplace. The kitchen was well stocked with any utensils, dishes, and pans necessary. The cabin was also stocked with board games and DVDs. Everything was perfectly clean. Huge deck with a great view and an outdoor fire pit. Half hours drive to Decorah for dining, shopping, or wineries/breweries. Great for a weekend getaway in Iowa!
