About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

24722 FINLEYS LANDING ROAD. SHERRILL, IOWA Kick back and get away from it all. This unique beachfront cabin takes on many different personalities depending on which season or even the time of day. Summertime, it is a beachhouse, Fall ,it gives the feel of a cozy cabin nestled in a deep valley at the base of a bluff. The Fall foliage contrasted with the river reflecting the blue sky can be striking. Wintertime ,the stark contrast from the white snowscape outside to the warmth inside really adds to the cozy feeling. Downey Woodpeckers and other wild birds hang out at the feeder. Shopping in Dubuque is a scenic 20 minute drive on paved roads. The Master bedroom is a great place to start the new day. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the bedrooms deck and watch the river light up with the morning sun. The Master queen and the twin/full bedrooms share a toilet and pedastel sink. Downstairs is the double twin bedroom .The main bathroom features an oversized shower with a tankless water heater which provides for long showers. A full sized air mattress with built in electric pump can be placed where needed. The address for your GPS is 24722 FINLEYS LANDING ROAD, SHERRILL, IOWA

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Sherrill, IA, USA:
There is not another place like it. Beach, harbor, and cabin with spectacular view on 2 acres is unheard of. Plus it is totally remote yet 15 minutes from shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Next door is Dubuque County's, Finleys Landing Park . 120 acres of rugged hiking. Climb the 150 foot river bluff for a spectacular view of the Mississipi River valley. For those non-hikers try a 15 minute drive to Balltown, the view from the viewing area is spectacular. While in Balltown check out Breitbachs Country Dining for a meal or drink. It is the oldest tavern in Iowa.
