The driftless area in Northeast Iowa is one of very few spots untouched by glaciers. This property will remind you of being in the mountains of Montana, next to a burbling stream. Peace...........beauty............quiet.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Great fishing with NO Mosquitos! Hard to believe, but true. Wildlife watching is superb. Keep your camera handy. No cell phone coverage means that you can legitimately detach from the outside world because you are in the Land That Time Forgot! The porch swings and rocking chairs aren't a bad place to enjoy that fresh morning cup of coffee or a cool beverage in midday.
