Property description

Twin Springs Lodge, located in the Twin Springs Valley, is a beautiful little spot located less than one mile from Decorah's city limits. This cozy, custom built home is something you won't want to miss. It features multiple different types of repurposed wood from throughout Northeast Iowa. The custom indoor hearth features stones from an old rural school in the area. The full size kitchen and spacious living room welcomes families and friends. Relax while sitting on the large, covered front patio and take in the beautiful surroundings of the Twin Springs Valley.
The cabin is stocked with all the necessary amenities including: Dish TV, DVD player, games, stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, kitchen supplies, utensils, pots, pans, deck furniture, and gas grill. Bedding (sheets, blankets, pillows) and towels are also provided. A picnic table and fire ring are located in the front yard (seasonal).
Decorah and Northeast Iowa have much to offer. Some of the best trout fishing in the state of Iowa is just down the road. Turkey, deer, and the occasional pheasant are popular hunting attractions in the area. The Upper Iowa River is nearby and offers fishing for many species. During the summer months kayaking, canoeing, and tubing the Upper Iowa is incredible and we can nearly guarantee a bald eagle siting!!

Decorah attractions include the Porter House Museum, Luther College campus, Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, Steyer Opera House, Decorah's Fish Hatchery, Malanaphy Springs, and Decorah's Historic Architecture Tour. The newly completed 14 mile bike trail circumnavigates the entire community!

Check out the Fort Atkinson Preserve, Bily Clocks Museum, Seed Savers Exchange/Heritage Farm, the Winneshiek Wildberry Winery or the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Burr Oak, IA.

Sleeping arrangements are as follows: queen in bedroom 1, queen in bedroom 2, two queens and two twins in loft, sofa bed in lower sunroom. Two full-sized air mattresses are available upon request.

This cabin is non-smoking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Zach and Stephanie Fromm, both graduates of Decorah High School, loved growing up in this scenic part of Iowa. They've enjoyed kayaking, canoeing, fishing, biking, camping and hiking in the Decorah area – Their passion for the outdoors is pretty obvious when you set your eyes on this beautiful cabin, located just past Twin Springs Park. After taking ownership of Twin Springs Lodge in late November, 2014, they were off and running with ideas on how they wanted to share their 'home away from home' and give families the opportunity to adventure, relax and enjoy Northeast Iowa's 'Driftless' Region. Any and all feedback is welcome! Your opinions matter to us, and we'd love to hear how your stay was or how we can make it better!
