Why Emily & Matt chose Coon Rapids
Prior to our ownership of this acreage, the Rookery Cottage used to be a flower shop. After buying this place, we began renovations to make it into a cozy overnight accommodation for guests. We love the area where we live and want to ensure visitors have an enjoyable time here and want to return.
What makes this Cabin unique
We live on the same property as the cottage and are readily available to answer any questions about the nearby trails, town, etc.

This place was wonderful.
I took one star off for accuracy of online listing as this place was much nicer than the listing portrays! It was peaceful and unhooked from the world, but there was plenty to do when we wanted to. Emily and Matt were great! We will come back as often as we can!
Perfect farm weekend!
Emily & Matt were great. Our daughter wishes to live on a farm so this was awesome for her. She got to feed the goat and chickens and collect eggs.
The cottage has so many amenities that I wish there was a detailed list. I wouldn’t have packed so much. Including a floor fan for each room. Really great and we’ll be back.
Exactly what we were hoping for!
The Rookery Cottage was wonderful! Very clean, very peaceful. Everything we needed was provided. We loved that we could simply walk out the back door and connect with hiking trails. Loved all the farm animals around too! Thanks so much Emily and Matt! We really enjoyed our stay.
Emily and Matt were great. The cottage was perfect and hiking was great!
We had all the amenities that we needed for a nice getaway weekend. It was great to have animals around. Plenty of good firewood and great views.
Perfect cozy cottage with a great location and everything we needed!
We had a lovely stay at The Rookery Cottage - perfect romantic Valentines weekend. The cottage was cozy and comfortable and the hiking trails afforded us beautiful walks with our dogs. It was an absolute winter wonderland with a beautiful all day snow also - the woods were magical. Highly recommend Emily & Matt as hosts as well. They were thoughtful, responsive and not intrusive in any way. Thank you for a memorable and lovely stay!
An amazing place with amazing hosts! Best VRBO yet!
Great views and hikes. A cute and cozy Cabin.
