Come stay at our cute cabin on the Mississippi River. Small one room cabin has everything you need for the perfect getaway, including a beach! Full size bed in the curtained off bedroom area, plus bunk bed, and two couches provide plenty of space to crash after a long day exploring the outdoors. Sleeping loft located above the bedroom area can be used for extra kid sleeping area. Full bath and kitchen with basic supplies will make you feel almost like home.

The space
Rustic cabin with wonderful areas to explore along the banks of the Mississippi.
Situated along the banks of the Mighty Mississippi just a short drive from Nauvoo, IL, this cute cabin is just the place for you if your ideal day consists of exploring outdoors during the day and resting your weary head at night. Nestled in the middle of nature, this cozy, non-smoking cabin is small, but it has everything you will need including a fully equipped kitchen and full-sized bathroom. You will feel like you are camping, but with more amenities including a new window air conditioning unit. The cabin can comfortably sleep four people, but it will accommodate up to six on the new mattresses and couches. If the steep driveway is a problem, you are welcome to park at the bottom of the hill.

Because there is no tv or internet, you will have plenty of time to explore the grounds. As long as the Mississippi River is not too high, you can spend the day on the beach fishing or swimming. You can also explore the woods around the cabin or the nearby creek. Be sure to look for eagles because there is a bald eagle's nest nearby. If you simply want to relax with a good book while the kids play and explore, you will be able to do that on the new deck. With Nauvoo being so close, you could also explore the many attractions in town before heading back to the peaceful riverfront setting. At night, enjoy building a bonfire on the beach using the occasional driftwood that washes up when the river is high.

Guest access
You have the entire cabin and property for your stay. Exploring the creek is one of our favorite things to do. You also have access to the beach. Use the area directly in front of the cabin. Feel free to burn off any drift wood on the beach.

Other things to note
This is an uninsulated cabin in the woods. More like camping than a hotel.

Very quiet and peaceful. The other cabins bedside ours do not usually have people in them, but they are nice neighbors. The other places farther down the road have people living in them year round.
