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

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved the cabin.

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay and visits with the owner. The cabin was very clean and well supplied with everything we needed for our stay. There were clean cooking and eating utensils, a full size refrigerator and dinning table. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets for those cold nights. I liked the big recliner that was in the main room. The view from the deck is extraordinary and provided beautiful sunrise pictures. Julie is a wonderful hostess and even brought us tomatoes from her garden for our dinner one evening. We very much enjoyed our visits with her and she was very helpful with questions we had about the area, our interests and anything we needed. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting the area and we plan on returning next year and staying longer.
We recommend trying the River City Restaurant on Main Street for breakfast lunch or dinner. You wont go away hungry and it is reasonably priced.

When you are in Keokuk be sure to check out the beautiful Rand Park and enjoy some delicious food at the Hawkeye Restaurant. If you are looking for a flawless, worry free stay..this is it!

We have been staying at this cabin for about seven years now. Beautiful area to visit. The Owners a fabulous and make you feel right at home. The cabin has every thing you need and then some. Exceptionally clean and well kept. The landscape is wonderful Hank and Julie are wonderful hosts. Fresh eggs from the hen house for breakfast doesn't get any better than that. We will be going for a visit for many years to come.
Thank You So Much Julie and Mr. Julie :)

Awesome 'Vacation' house

Awesome 'Vacation' house
  • 5 of 5
This was a neat little place, my 3 year old son enjoyed watching the trains go by early in the morning. He also enjoyed playing on the trampoline and the sandbox and toys Julie has there.
Defiantly get up early and sit on the deck to watch the sunrise off the Mississippi River- what an amazing sight to see!
Nestled in the hillside near Keokuk, Iowa we were able to easily travel to Missouri, do things in Iowa, and go across the river to Illinois.
My son loved the 'Vacation house' so much he woke up the first morning we were home he told me he wanted to go back! So we might be back!
We met my mom here and enjoyed ourselves, although it sleeps 5 people, the dining area doesn't have room for more than 4, but it worked for us because there were 3 adults and one child!

We have stayed 2 years in a row and love it!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was clean and nice. Julie and her family are very accomadating and friendly without being intrusive. We could sit on the deck and watch the activity on the river or the ducks around the property. Many birds are frequent in the nearby timber. We have had the kids with us and have gone alone. The town is lovely and there are many places to visit and the history of the area is everywhere. We plan on making this a yearly retreat. Thank you Julie for all you do to make the time spent in your cabin a wonderful getaway! Kristy
