Welcome to Trout River Log Cabin, a rustic 19th century Norwegian-built log house nestled in the rolling hills of Northeast Iowa, just seven miles from downtown Decorah, or three from TG Brewing. The cabin is open seasonally from April to October. Our family farm with its many acres of perennial grass fields, timber, and meandering Trout River is absolutely gorgeous. And while you're at it be sure to check out our other overnight stay, Decorah House, located five blocks from downtown Decorah.

Location

Decorah, Iowa, United States

Our farm sits seven miles from downtown Decorah. It's a twelve minute drive into town. And we're only three miles from Toppling Goliath. You can bike the gravels there in less than 15 minutes! Our farm sits on the end of a 1/2 mile gravel driveway on the edge of a bluff overlooking Trout River valley. There's a secondary highway about two miles away on the bottom of the valley floor. But other than that it's super private and quiet. The cabin sits about 50 yards from the big house, but is separated by a big windbreak of hundred year old Norwegian spruce.

We're Paul and Nathan. We live in stellar Decorah, Iowa. Decorah's a pretty great little town if you've never been. For the last seven years we've run Trout River Log Cabin, a historic log house stay located on our (Paul's) family farm six miles east of Decorah. Last year we started Decorah House, a guest suite located on the second floor of our totally cool and mostly restored 1850s brick house. Paul's a high school industrial arts teacher, cabinetmaker, hiker and tinkerer, and Nathan is an urban planner, dog walker, prolific reader and excellent cook. We have a kitty Ethelbert and a hound named Mabel. We love to travel, backpack out west, and spend time outdoors. We've done several backpacking trips in the Washington cascades, Wind River Range (amazing!!!) in WY, the Beartooths in Montana, and last summer hiked around the three sisters west of Bend, Oregon. This summer we hope to do a backpacking trip on the Olympic Peninsula.

During your stay
The time you spend at the cabin is your own. We go out of our way to make sure the cabin is ready to go, is super clean, and inviting. Most people show up wanting to disconnect from it all, and we encourage you to do so. We leave most interactions up to the person staying. If you want to stop by the big house to say hi, please do so. But alternatively if you want to chill and savor your own time, that's perfectly fine, too.

We spend our time between the farm and our place in Decorah. We spend our summers on the farm and are around most days. You'll also likely meet Paul's dad Craig who is out most every day tending to his heard of cattle, mowing, tinkering with his bees, and caring for the many buildings.
