A Little Bit of Serendipity: June 2009

  • 5 of 5
The Mississippi Hillside Cabin can be compared to the Keokuk Geode. It may not look like much from the outside but one you get inside, it SPARKLES & SHINES! The owner has planted a variety of blooming plants and shrubs with lawn ornaments scattered throughout the property. The clutch of ducks wander down during the day to the water inlet coming off the Mississippi River to take a dip. You can sit outside on the deck and watch the barges slowly troll up & down the river. At night, there are thousands of lightning bugs flashing off & on. If you look up, the fireflies are Mother Nature's display of little, white holiday lights outlining & running throughout the boughs of the trees. Then there is the Milky Way's stellar show shining down upon you! Gorgeous. Peaceful. It must be spectacular during a meteor shower! Inside the cabin, there is plenty of room for a family of four. My son of 21 years said I "did good" in selecting this place to stay for 3 nights.The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes & silverware. The owner checked to make sure we had clean towels if we needed them. It was just the right amount of hospitality. The sun rises early in the summer, around 5:00, so if you are not a morning person you may want to bring a sleeping mask. If you are a morning person, the sun rising over the river will perfect in getting you off to an early start to explore the geode display at the Holiday Inn or play one of the disc golf courses in Rand Park or across the river in Illinois. You can explore the dam and watch a barge go through the locks or take a drive along Grand Avenue to admire the majestic, historic homes. The stain glass windows in St. John's Episcopal Church, including 3 angels made by Tiffany, are exquisite! My 19 year old daughter's one request on our 4,525 mile trip was to get photographs of her and her brother under the state signs saying "Welcome to ..." which in Keokuk means you can get photographs of Iowa, Missouri and Illinois signs. Whether you choose to explore the tri-state area where the Mississippi River is at it's widest or just find a quiet place to rest, relax and do nothing, the Mississippi Hillside Cabin is a great place to call you "HomeAway" from home.

Owner's Response: I just want to thank all of my guests that have come here!!!!!
I've been so lucky they all have cleaned up the rental before leaving. And it is great meeting new people. I've had cute little notes from the kids saying they didn't want to leave and some call it their home away from home. They love feeding the ducks & chickens. The ones that come back seem like old friends.
I'm going to put a comment book over there. So if anyone wants to leave a note or send me a picture it would be great.
Thanks again ! Julie

Peaceful setting with beautiful view of the river!

  • 5 of 5
My brother, sister-in-law, and I have stayed here the past two years on our annual pilgrimage to go geode hunting. If you are looking for somewhere fancy, this is not for you. This is a clean river cabin with a great deck for watching the river. The setting is very peaceful. We love it! Nice kitchen with appliances to cook full meals. Julie is a great host and very forthcoming with information about the area, geode hunting, etc. We will be back!

Great little place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was comfy, tidy and well-appointed. We cooked all of our meals there and ate many of them on the deck with a Mississippi River view. Very relaxing!

Julie is charming and as nice a person as you could hope to meet. She was responsive to our every need and also respected her tenants' privacy.

Keokuk is the "geode capital of the world," and Julie - who is a little geode-crazy (I would be too, if I lived there!) has a very nice collection of them, and shared with us how to find them and how she cracks them. I wrote about it in a column I write for the Columbia Daily Tribune in Columbia, Mo. You can read it on their website.

I would highly recommend the Mississippi Hillside Cabin to family and friends - and you too.

Great view and location, clean, comfy, hospitable

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The deck looks out over the Mississippi, which is as wide as a lake. We watched the sun go down and the moon come up, and the pet ducks waddle home every night. Lots of TV channels and movie choices. Well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Plenty of hot water. Really, what else could you ask for. You could ask for a tour of Julie's geodes, and if you do you'll be impressed.

Great location, great cabin, great host!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was surprisingly large and the view of the river was terrific. Everything was spotless. The kitchen is well -equipped and there was plenty of hot water for showers. TV reception was very good. The whole trip was fun but the best was sitting on the deck in the morning with coffee or at night with a glass of wine. It is so peaceful and lovely there.

Be sure to ask Julie for the tour of her geodes; if you are lucky she will show you how they are cut and maybe sell you one or two. They are truly beautiful. I will definitely be back and will be recommending this spot to my friends.

Great setting, mediocre interior

  • 2 of 5
Upon arriving, we were immediately greeted by the friendly hostess. The setting is out standing! Great river view and convenient location for our visit needs. However, upon entering the house, we were greeted by a strong damp and musty smell despite two window air conditioners and three fans. The bathroom is small and the shower even smaller. Upon returning home, had to wash all our clothes and air out our suitcases as they absorbed the musty damp smell. I don't think we would stay there again or recommend it to anyone else unless the owner can dispel the dampness and musty odor. Interior amenities were as advertised. Enjoyed the night sky full of stars.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the musky smell :( We had a tree limb hit the overhang & didn't have the gutters put up yet. And with all the rain & 90+ temps & high humidity we been having this last week it's been terrible ! Got the gutter put on today :) Your review is my first bad one out of 14 reviews.
And about the bathroom. Yes the shower is small but I don't think the bathroom is that small. I ask my guests right after you about the bathroom & they said don't sorry about it. It was fine :) But I would like to have a shower/tub put in. Maybe next year :))))

I'm going to ask my next guests to post a reviews to show guests it a good place to come :)))
Thanks Julie
