Overview

About the property

New 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath authenic log cabin with large covered front porch

Ellen's log cabin is 2 and a half story's. It starts with a large covered porch that looks over the valley, a great place for your morning coffee. Walk into the living room with a cathedral ceiling and stairs that lead to the loft. The loft is where the master bedroom is located with an en suite bathroom. Back to the first floor is a full kitchen with a large walk out deck that is actually in the trees. This deck has a large table for outdoor eating and BBQ grill for grilling. The lower floor has 2 bedrooms, family room (which doubles as another private bedroom) and full bathroom. From the family room you walk out to a private lower deck with a hot tub and seating. A fire pit is in the back yard surrounded by woods, very private. Do not worry about where to buy the wood for your fire, we provide it with your cabin.

We rent Ellen's by the bedrooms needed. The rate you see here is one of our seasonal rates for a couple. Additional guest is $25. per guest per night. We offer the couple rate so, a couple can come and stay without paying for all the bedrooms.

Absolutely WONDERFUL cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely return to this amazing place, so nice we didn't want to leave! The porches, hot tub and fire ring in back got plenty of use. We were a group of 8 and there was plenty of space to accommodate everyone. We did a canoe trip and this location is perfect for that, with the outfitter just one mile down the road. We put in near the springs and floated 9 miles on the upper Meramec. The take out was just down the road, making it simple to return to the cabin after a day on the river. Great trout fishing area too.

The eat-in kitchen is large and fully stocked with everything you need. One night we couldn't find a corkscrew, called Cindy and she had one for us in minutes.

The owners are absolutely great folks! They live just down the road, there if we needed them but also were happy to give our group privacy. Cindy is very friendly, great with communication all along the process. She made sure all went smooth for us during our stay.

Everyone in our group was quite impressed with this cabin. We will be back.

A great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Ellen's Log Cabin. The cabin is very clean and cozy, and well secluded yet not too far outside of Steelville. The bed is very comfortable. The hot tub is fantastic -- it is very relaxing by itself but the mineral system makes it that much better. The whole stay is just great, and it has become one of our favorite trips of the year. Looking forward to visiting again next year. If you're looking for a place to get away from everything for a while and just unwind, this is a great choice.

Wonderful Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in a lovely wooded setting with neighbors not too close. The furniture was comfortable and the home clean. Firewood was provided for the fire pit. It has 2 decks with a hot tub on the lower deck that was enjoyed by guests. A half bath is located on the main level. There are no bedrooms on the main level which presents a challenge to those with limited mobility and the stairs leading to the upstairs are exceptionally steep ruling this bedroom out for those having trouble on the stairs. The stairway leading down to 3 bedrooms/family room is of a normal pitch. The beds are all very comfortable. Fortunately the downstairs bathroom has a walk in shower. Because the shower floor is slippery, I would recommend a shower mat and installation of a grab bar. Better outside lighting on the lower level would make is safer to negotiate the stairway into the yard after dark. Everyone in our party enjoyed the surroundings and spaciousness of the cabin which is a short drive into Steeleville.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Ellen's cabin was perfect for my husband and I and our daughter and son-in-law. Lots of together space but room for privacy also. Loved the decks and especially the little pond. So peaceful. Enjoyed watching the frogs and saw a hummingbird. Everything you need is provided. Thanks so much for letting us stay!
