About Becky

Our log cabin was hand built by Ken--it took 2-1/2 years to complete. He also is very knowlegdable about the wildflowers that surround the cabin. We also run the Rose Pedaler next door and have enjoyed getting to know many people that have stayed at the cabin and visited the Rose Pedaler

Becky purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Becky chose Rose Creek

We have lived in the area for our entire lives and decided with news of the Shooting Star Bike Trail going right by, this would be a great opportunity for us.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the solitude on the deck, or have a campfire in our firepit located by the Rose Creek. Bike trail is complete to LeRoy (20 miles) and can be reached by our blacktopped path to the Shooting Star Trail. Crafters retreat across the parking lot now available for a great crafters retreat weekend or bring your family and/or friends and enjoy the ambiance of the log cabin!

Clean Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this home for a great getaway! Booked it for a celebration in nearby Adams - 6 miles away. Every room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of outdoor space on the wrap around porch and on the lawns. Rained mostly while we were there so only able to use the porch space as grass was too wet.

Outdoor picnic tables and some chairs provided great outdoor dining. Each bedroom has a TV, outside balcony and private bath. Bought groceries from both home and the Hy-Vee store in Austin - 12 miles away. We had Hy-Vee cater a lunch.

Everything worked great - air conditioning, microwave, coffee pot, dishwasher, crockpot, etc. We can't say a bad thing about our stay. Thanks Becky for an awesome stay - we will be back - or at least some of my family will as they all wanted to know how I got this place.

What a beautiful property! 9 of us stayed there for a girls weekend and it fit us perfectly. This cabin is impeccably clean, and had all the amenities we needed and more! We also loved the easy access to the 30 mile long bike bath. We plan to return next year! The owner was also wonderful, and responded quickly to our emails and questions. She’s a gem! Thanks again Becky!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sisters and my Mom for a long weekend. The cabin is beautiful and we had a very relaxing time. Becky was great. The DVD player wasn't working so Becky came over to try to help us get it going, and when she was unable to, she went to her home and brought us hers to use for the weekend so we could watch the movies we had brought. The beds were comfortable and I loved that each of the 3 bedrooms has a bathroom. With 5 women this is a very nice detail. The cabin is very nicely decorated, giving it the cabin feel. The closest grocery store is in Austin about 15-20 minutes away, so keep this in mind if you are going to stay here. This was not a problem for us, we shopped one time and had more than enough to eat for the 4 days we were there. We loved going for daily walks down the bike trail and into the very small town of Rose Creek. And we were thrilled to find a Catholic Church so close (in Rose Creek) where we could attend Mass on Sunday before heading home. This is a place to relax and enjoy the people you are with. There is not a lot of things to do real close by, but as I mentioned Austin was a short drive down the road. We had brought movies and cards and board games so it was perfect for us. Along with the walks and the campfire at night, it was a perfect relaxing time.

Great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to be able to check in at noon instead of having to wait until 4 p.m. The cabin was very clean and neat and the outdoor area well kept and inviting. The rooms were all a good size and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at this cabin.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this well-appointed cabin in a beautiful, peaceful setting, beside paved bike trail and meandering creek. At night, we enjoyed the lightning bug show from upstairs terrace. Relaxing!
