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.

In the upstairs loft suite you will find a king size bed and private bathroom. The loft suite also includes a couch with a pull out queen sleeper.

Knotty Pine Guest House is located about 18 miles from Decorah, Iowa. Decorah was recently featured in Smithsonian Magazine's annual list of the 20 best small towns to visit in America, as well as being named in Forbes 'America's Prettiest Towns' list.

The bluff country of Northeast Iowa has so much to offer, including biking, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, kayaking, museums and shopping. There are 3 golf courses within a 15 minute radius. After a full day of activities, come back to Knotty Pine Guest House and relax in the peaceful and quiet surroundings of the bluff country. Sit on the covered front porch or enjoy the large deck.

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 Iowa

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.

Quiet Peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Knotty Pines! It definitely was our home away from home. The cabin has everything you need for your stay. The location of the cabin is nice and secluded. We will definitely look into staying here again when we are in the area again.

Amazing relaxing trip!

  • 5 of 5

This place was phenomenal! We had 6 adults and one toddler and it exceeded our expectations! Everything we needed was provided! The puzzles, books, and toys were so amazing to have for our toddler. The local coffee was such a great surprise. The place was clean and so perfect! Thanks for everything!

Quiet, restful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described. Along with friends (another couple besides us) we enjoyed the quiet pit of the way location. The house was clean and well equipped. AND the firewood was very dry making fit a great fire outdoors the second night. We used the host provided luau of restaurants and sites. We enjoyed our visits to Bily Clocks in Spillville (a fascinating display of craftsmanship and creativity). We visited the Seed Savers Exchange as well. Plus the weather cooperated for a bike ride around Decorah on the trout run trail.

We had supper at "The Fort" which was great for us. The manager and waitress were terrific. Plus another patron spotted a yellow jacket on the back of my shirt, knocked it off and I crushed it on the floor where it landed. We will recommend it to others!

Wonderful, Cozy, Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A Luther college graduation brought us to this cabin and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We had a rainy weekend, but the cabin made up for it. We enjoyed the fireplace, played games and watched a movie, all of which were provided by the hosts. The cabin had everything you could ask for and we all enjoyed roaming around and looking at the well decorated rooms and all of the little additions to the cabin which made the stay so enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anyone who plans to stay in this area. You will not be disappointed!
