Overview

About the property

River View, 2 Bedroom, 1 lg Bath, 1 Car Garage. Check in time:11AM, Out 4PM

The cottage is a river cabin, right on the Rock River in Rock Island Illinois in the Quad Cities. Drop down the lane and you are in the country. Back up the lane and you have everything you could need: restaurants, bank, shopping, groceries, hospital, and so many things to do for everyone and every like! The cottage has a full kitchen, living room with french doors out to a large deck that over looks the river. Come sit and eat your dinner or have drinks on the deck table and chairs looking out on the river. The 2 bedrooms are plenty big with a huge bathroom with tub/shower. Park your car in the attached garage. If you have friends or family who may be interested, we have another rental next door to this rental that others could stay at. That is VRBO listing 304756 if you care to take a look.

Bring your fishing polefor the river, or watch from the deck the Backwater Gamblers ski show that perform every Wednesday and Sunday night.

If you are coming to attend a wedding, birthday, graduation, school reunion, here for the Holidays, etc., WONDERFUL!!, but we do NOT want to be the "Venue/Reception hall" for these occasions. The Cottage is only for guests who have paid to stay. We do agree to a small family or a couple friends, (example: 4 guests of our guest and one extra car over for an afternoon or evening). We have very limited parking and facilities for a small number of people. Thank You.

About Jeff and Rosanne Puck

My husband and I were always taking our 2 sons as they were growing up on the Rock River and the Mississippi boating, skiing, tubing, and just having fun on the shores. We lived in Davenport, Ia and always looking for a place on the river to make our home. That finally came true in 1999. We love it here and want to share it with all of you! We had rented several vacation cabins/houses from Estes Park, Colorado, Okoboji, Iowa, Minnesota, Canada to Florida. We realized we have just as nice vacation area right here. Please come and enjoy!

Jeff and Rosanne Puck purchased this cottage in 2013

Idyllic spot

  • 5 of 5

Nothing fancy but exactly what was needed. Spent most of our time on the deck looking out on the river and grilling. Great hiking a stone's throw away. Jeff and Rosanne were friendly but gave us space. It was great to be able to bring my dog, and she loved it too!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very friendly and helpful at check in and check out. The deck overlooking the river was our favorite part. Even though we were close to town it felt like we were off the beaten path which made it feel secluded.

High expectations met!

  • 5 of 5

Having been an owner and a resident on "The Rock" many years ago, I was looking forward to spending time on the river again. Rented both cottages for my family. I wasn't looking for elegance, but a river cottage experience. The thought and effort Jeff and Rosanne Puck put into making their properties cozy and inviting was very obvious. We are all talking of returning sometime. Hats off to Jeff and Rosanne.

The cottage needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

The view from the deck was great. The beds could be larger, have pillow top mattresses, and the couches have seen better days. There was also evidence of mouse droppings in the kitchen cabinets where where the utility and flatware were stored. You were very pleasant people. We did not have access to fish from the dock as your boat was docked there. I think with a little upgrading it could be much nicer. You might also consider upgrading the toilet to the taller ones now available. Wish you all the best the.

The cottage is right on the Rock River next door to our 'Vacation Cabin' that some of you may be familiar with that we have been renting since 2009. So, if you and another family are interested in more space, we now have it! When you step outside, the yard extends to the river and you can walk right down to it. There is a wonderful large deck to view the river and the wildlife from. Just up river, you can see the Backwater Gambler's Ski Show every Wednesday and Sunday nights. There are plenty of other things to do and the Quad Cities Convention Bureau site can tell you what is going on during the time you are vacationing. There are several golf courses, bicycling, the zoo is very nice, Celebration River Cruises and the Catfish tour boat stopping many places for you to get out and sight see, shop or eat on the Mississippi River. Lots of live entertainment, and The Rock is a Restaurant/bar that you could walk to that has live entertainment every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon. I-Wireless Center has big name star concerts almost every weekend. If not concerts, they are home to the Quad City Mallards Hockey team, Basketball, rodeos, demolition car derbys, circus, and on-and-on.
