Property description

The cabin on Mississippi Ridge sits atop Eagle Mountain overlooking the Mississippi River. Experience the tranquility of ridge-top lodging, where the river below slows the world to a leisurely pace.

The cabin lies in a secluded section of ridge-top woods teeming with wildlife, and features approximately 1500 square feet with accommodations for six people, including two bedrooms and family room with queen hide-a-bed. Finished with hardwood floor and pinewood ceiling, accented with Driftless area artwork, and illuminated with natural light; the living room captures the character of the landscape.

On Mississippi Ridge is operated by Eric and Betty Frydenlund and their children, part of a family that has been in the lodging business for three generations. The cabin represents the culmination of a two-year search for property overlooking the water. The Frydenlunds have traveled extensively and know from experience the qualities that make a good vacation home. From the curtains on the windows to the board games in the cabinet, everyone has contributed to the cabin’s homelike character. But eventually it’s the view that will have you glancing out the window. The Frydenlunds hope you enjoy the scenery and share the inspiration of the Driftless area.
