HATFIELD LAKES-LOG HOMES-PRIVATE ESTATE-LAKES-FISHING-WILDLIFE

Creston Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

HATFIELD LAKES.....THE PERFECT ESTATE... TWO LOG HOMES to choose from..... FOR THE DISCRIMINATING FEW WHO DEMAND THE VERY BEST LIFE HAS TO OFFER.....located on 1000 ACRES of private lakes. We are a CONSERVATION PROPERTY, with private FISHING, and fabulous wooded fields. We are located in the perfect location for PRIVATE FISHING on the estate. We have hundreds of acres to Hike, see wildlife.....turkey, deer, pheasant, quail. To Fish....catch bass, perch, blue gill and walleye.

Our 110 year old log home, named THE STOTT HOUSE LOG CABIN, was named to commemorate the family that homesteaded the land and built the 110 year old farmhouse. Ida, Jake, and Tom, English immigrants, built the original home from various houses that they pulled, by horse and buggy, to the farm. They built the home, piece by piece, and lived in the home during their lifetime. The Hatfields rebuilt and restored the 110 year old home, using logs, installing hand hewn beams, adding massive porches, and updating the interior, while still keeping the style and the 'feel' of the vintage home built over one hundred years ago..

This unique, one of a kind vintage home, is built with the cowboy/lodge decor throughout. We designed the home with antler chandeliers, log beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, copper and slate counter tops, hand hewn massive log and iron beds, pedestal sinks, hair-on-hide sofas and furnishings, and handpainted armoires and cabinetry.

The Stott Log Home has three bedrooms.......and two bathrooms.

The lower floor has a entry with mesquite breakfast table. The kitchen is a full kitchen with all major appliances and bar table. The dining room, with seating for eight, in located in the former porch area....and is one of the best places to observe wildlife. Our windows surround the dining area and provide the private vistas that people can only dream about.

The living room has old fashioned windows that reach to the floor. The antler chandelier illuminates the western and lodge art. The rock gas fireplace adds romance the lower level of the home. Hardwood floors and the abundance of dark, heavy wood, creates intimate and homey spaces.

The lower bedroom has a massive hand hewn king log bed, antique armoire, and antique furnishings. The lower bathroom (with washer and dryer)is located about 10 feet from the bedroom, near the kitchen.

The two story log home has a vintage winding narrow staircase (23' wide) leading to the two bedrooms and one bathroom. Two bedrooms are located on the top floor. The red bedroom has two massive log twin beds, with sloping 'old-time' slanted farmhouse ceilings. The gold bedroom has an iron-twig king bed, with the slanted farmhouse ceilings. The blue bathroom, with pedestal sink and tub/shower, is located next to each bedroom.

The wrap-around, three-sided log and beam porch was designed to create the perfect relaxing outdoor spaces. We have a dining table, seating 12, made of massive tree roots. The hardwood rocking chairs, and bench seating is the perfect place to watch wildlife, sit under the porch ceiling fans, and enjoy the 200 year old trees gracing the lawn and fields.

THE BIG JOHN LOG CABIN IS OUR NEWEST ADDITION TO HATFIELD LAKES!

THE BIG JOHN LOG CABIN is located Waterfront........ The newly completed cabin has two king bedrooms, each with private bath. The bathrooms have sinks made of trees from the Pacific Northwest. The full kitchen, living and dining area overlooks the lake. The home is furnished with fabulous art, leather/hide furnishings, western and lodge furniture, hardwood floors, fabulous carpets, imported handpainted armoires, stone fireplace, and log beds. The waterfront verandah has log rocking chairs to relaxe in.... The home also has a fishing bridge which goes from the shore to the island. Beneath the bridge you will see thousands of bass and bluegills........ In the fall and spring, the Canadian Geese are everywhere....laying their eggs, and enjoying the safty of this protected habitat.

And, HATFIELD LAKES, has been the site of many programs produced for the wildlife and fishing television channels. WHO's Des Moines, metereoroglogist, John McGlaughlin, has filmed many fishing productions on our ponds throughout the past ten years.

Chief Justice Sandra Day O'Conner, and Chubby Checker have both been guests at the HATFIELD LAKES.

We are from Iowa..........we grew up on the Hatfield Farmland and attended the local Orient-Macksburg schools.

Ann Hatfield Merritt purchased this cabin in 1960

John and Marian Hatfield, our parents, bought the farms in 1960. Immediately, my father began building the lakes. He loved the outdoor life. And loved building a nature reserve. He would fly his float plane into the Canadian Lakes, and fly home with the prize walleye and bass. He would release the bass and walleye into our lakes. He never allowed fishing, unless it was for a television show, or for private guests. He wanted to the land to stay as natural as possible. The Lakes became natural habitat for mallard ducks, geese, deer, pheasants, and wood ducks. He received awards for land and wildlife preservation.

Hatfield Lakes are a beautiful sight to see............In the middle of rural Iowa, you have private lakes, big cedar trees, Log Homes, and the peace and privacy that we all desire....... Welcome to Hatfield Lakes............!
