About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Walnut Creek Cabin, formerly known as the Rustic Retreat, is a secluded log cabin on a private stream located in the heart of the Driftless Area. The cabin has recently been renovated to welcome guests into a modern + rustic luxury getaway. The rustic details of the original log cabin have been preserved and reimagined to include an attractive modern design.

During your stay, the serene landscapes of rolling hills, bubbling brooks and wildlife invite you to explore the 10 acres of land with nature walks or while sitting in the hot tub. There is also an outdoor fire pit, screened-in porch, and an indoor gas fireplace to make this your dream retreat. Experience nature and simple living without forgoing all the amenities.

The cabin is located close to the scenic Mississippi River where you can enjoy water sports, fish, and watch spectacular sunsets. Nearby is the Rush Creek State Nature Preserve and also the Villa Louis in historic Prairie Du Chien. During wintertime, enjoy cross county skiing and snowmobiling.

The Space:

You will have access to the entire log cabin, which is located in Ferryville, WI. There is a private bedroom on the main level with a full bed and access to the washer/dryer in the closet. The upstairs loft has a queen bed, complete with a Saatva luxury mattress made with eco-responsible materials. There is also a daybed couch, that can convert into a queen-sized bed, and additional seating areas upstairs in the loft. The cabin is fully furnished and also offers Wi-Fi, cable TV and a land line (if you choose to use!) to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is very nice When they say it's secluded they mean it! Not another soul around. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and took advantage of the hot tub. The only complaint I have is the beds are hard as a rock.

Rustic Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying here. The cabin's upscale appliances and decor blend seemlessly with rustic, log cabin charm. The quiant town of Lansing, Iowa located over the river border bridge is only a 10-15 minute drive. The park at the top of the bluff - Mt. Hosmer is truly beautiful. We towed our boat with us and enjoyed boating and fishing the Mississippi. Evenings at the cabin were fun -- hot tub, nice selection of dvds in the cabin, and well-appointed kitchen to cook awesome meals allowed us to fully kick back and relax. Also, the property itself is lovely -- even a little stream and trail to enjoy.

Christmas in the Driftless!

  • 5 of 5

Spent Christmas at this cabin and we agree it will be the Christmas to beat! Snowshoed, hiked, cooked great meals and enjoyed the solitude this cabin offers. It was neat as a pin and had everything we needed. The upstairs loft is a perfect place to read and relax. The hot tub was amazing and the beds comfortable. Such a cozy inviting environment inside and the scenery can't be beat outside. We brought a DVD from the library about the history of the Driftless Region and learned what an ecologically unique place it is. The owner is top notch to work with, responds quickly to questions and is very accommodating. This place offered us pure relaxation!

Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time enjoying the cute cabin and the hot tub. We like to take our mopeds out by the Mississippi and ride the hills and valleys. Although Crawford County saw a lot of flooding recently we were able to get around and were happy to spend vacation dollars here when tourism dollars are needed even more. The cabin is very quiet and is the perfect get away amidst stunning scenery. The beds and furniture are very comfortable and we did not lack for anything. I did fumble to get the TV working so if you are a TV watcher make sure the TV is set to component to bring in the cable channels. The cabin is decorated really cute and has all the "log-cabin" touches. We enjoyed visiting the variety stores in Lansing and a hike at the Sugar Creek Nature Conservancy off of North Bear Creek Road (1/2 mile south after intersection of 35 and Hwy C) off of 35. Next time we will have to make sure we go to the Sugar Creek Winery which we did not make this time. We will be back!
