À propos de ce logement

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.

Our 2017 season runs from April 15th to October 15th.

Le logement

The cabin was built in the 1850s as a Norwegian-Lutheran parochial school. Built of old growth oak, walnut, and elm trees, the house feels rich and textured, the product of a different era. In 1898 it was disassembled, moved across a field, and rebuilt as a house by Norwegian immigrant Peter Losen. It remained lived in until the late 1970s and fell into disrepair. In 2007 we disassembled the house, moved it to its present site, and spent three years lovingly restoring it. We warmly welcome you.

The cabin comfortably sleeps two. Upstairs is a comfy, yet very firm queen size bed. Linens and blankets are provided. There is a pullout twin sized bed that can accomodate a third person. The pullout bed is in the same space as the queen bed.

On the main level you'll find a small yet totally functional kitchen stocked with all the kitchen supplies you'll need. We also supply fair trade and organic coffee and teas. Also on the main level you'll find comfy arm chairs, a kitchen table, a bookshelf of interesting books, board games, photo albums of the log cabin restoration and information of the surrounding area.

The bathroom is on the main floor and the shower is upstairs in the bedroom. Both the bathroom and shower are stocked with organic soaps, shampoo and conditioner. Towels and wash cloths are provided.

Accès des voyageurs

The porch is wonderful with amazing views of Trout River valley. The landscape is absolutely stunning- you'll agree! There is a fire ring with supplied firewood. With various infestations, please don’t bring your own wood.

You're welcome to fish and swim in Trout River. You can get to the stream by way of a ten minute path down the hill and through the woods. We recently won an award for our conservation practices, which include set-aside Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) native prairie lands around the stream and throughout the farm, bank stabilization, tree planting, and public fishing access. We own the only piece of private ground on Trout River that's open to public fishing. We're proud of that. You're welcome to hike the many trails, birdwatch, and poke around the farm as much as you'd like. But sorry, no hunting.

Your cell phone and cellular data work here, but sorry, no TV or wireless internet access.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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.

Autres remarques

The house measures 17'x18' and is two stories. Everything is tight and compact, but also surprisingly functional. Downstairs is the kitchen/living room and half bath. Upstairs is the bedroom and shower. The steps to the upstairs are curved and steep. If you're looking to spread out, this definitely ain't it.

The cabin is 160 years old and sits in the country. There are bugs and long grass. The house is quirky, has resident crickets in the late summer months, and has steep steps. If you're willing to put up with all that, you're in for a super relaxing and worthwhile time.

We chose this location for it's proximity to Decorah and the opportunity for my husband to fish while staying at the farm. Paul's cabin has been carefuly restored, tastefully decorated and contains all the modern conviences necessary for a comfortable stay. The peace and quiet this cabin offered was an unexpected but welcomed benefit. If we return to this area, we'd love to stay here again.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Cabin but this time I brought my Mom. We both enjoyed it a lot, especially having coffee on the porch in the morning and listening to neighboring farms wake up. We also had the pleasure of meeting Paul and his dog Mabel one morning as we walked the long driveway. I definitely want to go back! Very relaxing.

This lovely cabin was exactly as pictured and what we expected. Actually, the sleeping loft and bed was even better than we expected - a very comfortable bed is always a plus! The view and location can't be beat - it represents the best qualities of the Decorah area; quiet, quaint beauty. Even though we didn't get a chance to meet Paul on this stay, we hope to do so the next time we have the pleasure of staying here. We certainly recommend this cozy cabin over a sterile motel room any day! Enjoy!

What a relaxing weekend! The cabin was beautiful and we spent countless hours just sitting on the porch overlooking the peaceful countryside. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast. We went back and forth into Decorah 3 times and the drive was quick and very scenic. Paul provided excellent instructions before we arrived so getting there was a breeze. We've already recommended the cabin to our friends and will stay again the next time we are in Decorah.

This place is a gem! It was so relaxing, private, well-kept, and accommodating. I can't wait to come back.

We are thankful Paul let us arrive a little early and we enjoyed the scenic views around the area. Paul is a friendly host. We really appreciated the sunrise and the sunsets from atop Trout River Rd. I think the little porch on the front is the best! Paul has worked very hard to recreate an authentic pioneer cabin and we are glad we got to experience a little of the past! The cabin was decorated very nicely and added to the setting of the place. We recommend visiting this cabin in the early summer or fall for an all around inside/outside experience. There is a place to have a bonfire and even roast marshmallows!
