About the property

Our hand-crafted log cabin is located on a little gravel road in a lovely rural setting just outside of Fort Atkinson, Iowa.

The main level offers an open floor plan with a spacious living room. Vaulted ceilings, log beams and a floor to ceiling lime-stone fireplace makes this living space comfortable and relaxing. Our kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Aside from dishes, pots and pans, there is also a blender, toaster, waffle maker and coffee maker. We provide a locally roasted coffee. Also included on the main level are two bedrooms featuring queen size beds. The main level bathroom features a tub/shower.

About Jeremy & Stacy Merrill

Jeremy and I (Stacy), both grew up in the area. Although we went to the same school, we didn't get to know each other until a few years later. We have been married since 2003 and have two boys. We enjoy our life in the country and couldn't think of a better place to raise our family.

Why Jeremy & Stacy Merrill chose Fort Atkinson

This log cabin has a lot of meaning to our family. Jeremy's Dad Tim, took three years to build this cabin (1978-1981). This is the house that Jeremy's parents raised him and his brother in. It wasn't until recently that we found ourselves with an empty log cabin and decided to share it's beauty and serenity with others. We also live out on the property, which is about 140 acres, although our two houses are spread far enough apart that you cannot see one from the other. If you have any questions, feel free to email or call us at (563) 380-8762.

Beautiful cabin in the country. Clean, spacious and had all the amenities of home.

Our family had a great time at the cabin. What a beautiful, cozy, quiet property. We will definitely be back during the summer and fall to enjoy the outdoor life with fire pit. Could not have asked for a better weekend stay with family.

It's perfect!

What a beautiful area and log cabin! Our hosts were helpful and kind and responsive before and during our stay! The cabin was beautifully decorated and clean. The furniture set up great for chatting in front of the fireplace...complete with blanket throws in a basket by the fire. The large stone fireplace and log interior was warm and furniture cozy. The beds so comfy and the Views out all the windows brings the outdoor - indoors! The kitchen was extremely well equiped with lots of cooking/baking space. The kitchen table perfect for meals and game space. The bathrooms meticulously clean and plenty of towels and supplies! In short we loved our stay and hope to return and highly recommend to everyone!

Great place to meet, relax, and rejuvenate.

This is a beautiful piece of heaven. We stayed for a girls weekend and loved every minute of our stay. Did not really want to leave. Decorah was close by, visited the winery and had a blast. The cabin is peaceful and quiet, we decided to cook ourselves and enjoyed the fire and a movie. We would love to come back again. Jeremy and Stacy were very helpful and tentative to our needs. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven..

Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Knotty Pine Guest House has become one of my favorite getaway spots for peace and tranquility. The cabin is warm and inviting in every season, with a nicely equipped kitchen, a deck to enjoy nature, and a place to enjoy a fire inside or outside. Stacy and family do a great job of making you feel comfortable and welcome. Love it!
