"We just wanted to get away for a few days and had a wonderful time at this cabin!! The free water park passes were an added bonus and all the amenities were just a walk away! Loved this cozy cabin and will definitely have to come back next year!!"

"Let us add our glowing review to the dozens of positive reviews that others have already written here. We recently spent two wonderful days and nights at the Edelweiss cabin to celebrate our anniversary, and we could have not asked for a more peaceful and romantic experience. The cabin is very clean and well furnished with most anything you might need for your stay. The view from the screened-in porch is amazing—we saw deer playing in the open meadow behind the house, wild turkeys strutting in the open areas, and all manner of birds and other wildlife. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit each night as we gazed at the stars, and we also made use of the kayaks and paddleboat that are provided.
Even more than the comfortable and well-maintained cabin and property, however, you will soon come to appreciate the glorious privacy and the sense of peace and tranquility that make this such an amazing experience. We were just a few minutes drive to all of the historic sites in Dubuque, yet when we settled in at the Edelweiss cabin, we felt that we were a world away from the noise and commotion of a busy city.
Laura was a pleasure to work with, and we enjoyed the freshly baked cookies when we arrived. The Edelweiss cabin is perfect for one or two couples, but with the other cabin just a short walk away, this setting would be perfect for a small family get-together as well. We will no doubt return for another relaxing stay, and we have already told some of our friends about the cabins."

"I took my mother and son for a 5 night trip to this wonderful gem. The house is beautiful-they don't build houses as solidly and sound-proof as they did then. The views of the Mississippi River were amazing, and we spent a lot of time on the porch enjoying the scenery. And the location is wonderful for short trips to nearby attractions (Pike's Peak, Dubuque). Communication with the owner was easy and pleasant, and the the woman that opened the house and greeted us, Carolyn, was very nice. All in all, I highly recommend this lovely home."

"We had our family reunion at Buck Run Lodge. Of course there's always one or two families that show up unexpectedly so we had more than originally anticipated. It worked out great anyway! There's room for 1 or 2 blow up beds on the floor. The family made memories with fishing, kayaking, making s'mores at the fire pit and soaking up the beauty of this place. The huge wrap around porch was perfect. My aunt is in a wheelchair but got around just fine. It would be great to have some handicap handles in the shower but it worked out for her without. My husband grilled every meal on their park grill but we had to be patient as it is petite. Another twin of the current grill or a small propane grill you bring along would work. I would definitely recommend this place to others (already have)."
