Quiet escape with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing weekend with friends. The weather and amenities were near perfect, but the views of the Mississippi River valley were awe-inspiring, especially at sunset. The property owners/managers were very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed our evenings outside by the fire.

Perfect Christmas Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family Christmas get away at Murph's Cabin. It was perfect! We baked cookies for Santa, soaked in the hot tub, sat by the fireplace, then watched Christmas movies in the family room. We had plenty of space for the whole family (4). The cabin was clean & comfortable. And the river view is breathtaking!

Quite Hide-away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Murph's Hide-away on the weekend of August 26, 2016.

It was exactly as described, very private, with lots of open space around it and the forest surrounding that.

The cottage is comfortably furnished and very well maintained. It contains all the necessary linen and kitchen ware, affording the option of preparing a meal or bar-b-que if so desired. The hot tub was clean and ready for use upon our arrival and the deck made a great place to have a sundowner and enjoy the peace of nature.

Situated in De Soto it is close to the Great River Road with its expansive views of the Mississippi and an easy drive to Prairie du Chien or La Cross and all the smaller villages along the way. Lansing IA is also worth visiting, not only to observe the old steel bridge.

Do visit the Wooden Nickel Saloon in Ferryville ,for its hospitality and burgers.

Route 171 from Ferryville to Richland Center takes you on a meandering route through apple orchards and wonderful scenery.

Birthday Relaxation Far Away.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Murph's Hideaway right after New Years. Had an amazing time. The cabin was clean, warm and very spacious. We got to use it to its fullest, cooking and relaxing. The hot tub was an added bonus to the wonderful view from the porch. We would definitely love to come back again. ~Nadia and the gang.

We were at Murph's cabin for a week and had a wonderful time with our family. It is so relaxing and quiet, alot of downtime to just reconnect. The view was amazing and the hottub even better, the sky is so clear at night you can count the stars. Knutson Property Services was great and johnnie on the spot for all of our needs. Thanks so much and we definitely look forward to working with you again.
