Feel of Country in the City

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio

Nestled just on the edge of town on College Drive, this inviting home has the character of a country cabin, but gives you quick access to town. The park-like landscaping in the backyard is not only picturesque, but gives you a peaceful retreat from your backdoor. Children will enjoy the tire swing playset and teepee, but the firepit and the pond with fountain will be a favorite for the adults in the group. The 3D full body massage chair will keep you fully relaxed on your stay.

Fully outfitted with coffeemaker (pot and K-cup), toaster, dinnerware, cookware, drinkware, knives, utensils, dish soap, hand soap, towels, and shampoo. Also a microwave and an induction cooktop for fast easy cooking. Includes a propane grill on the back deck.

A professional salon sink and chair are available as well as a 3-way full-length mirror for the ladies in your group who want to be pampered.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect place for 4 fishing buddies
This home was great! Not only did we have fresh eggs for breakfast, we were able to grill the trout we caught for dinner! The hosts are awesome! We would all highly recommend this place.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent stay!
Very clean and lots of space. This was a great location and a fun property for the kids. We loved being less than 5 minutes from downtown and my kids enjoyed the backyard and "needed" to check on the chickens 3-4 times a day. They ended up naming a few of them so say hi to Daisy for us when you stay!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful setting
This beautiful home was the perfect setting and location for our family while we explored the Decorah area. Our teenage kids each brought a friend and they had plenty of room to spread out. We all loved the massage chair! I most enjoyed eating breakfast out on the deck in the beautiful backyard! Highly recommend!!!

5/5 Excellent

R & R Retreat
We loved our trip. The house was nice from the outside but once we entered we were treated with a well decorated, extremely homey retreat. Great open space in the main living area upstairs and a great area in the basement. Plenty of beds and bedrooms, also with a warm roomy feel. Beds were made and bath closets were loaded with towels. The basement has a message chair, in my opinion, better than any jacuzzi I had ever been in. I did give a 4 star for location; however, that was only because the house does not sit in a remote area. There are a few neighbors but we never heard or saw any of them. Great little town with any convenience you would need. Had a great time and the owner was incredible. I would highly recommend.
