About the property

Cabin, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Experience peace and quiet, relaxation and restoration at Horn's Ferry Hideaway. Our luxury cabin will make sure your home away from home offers every comfort possible.

Whether you are seeking a serene place to read a book or an exciting hike in the woods, Horn's Ferry Hideaway is your place! We are located just steps from the 23 mile Volksweg Trail where you can bike, hike or walk; next door to Ivan's Campground, making us a perfect destination for large group gatherings and moments from Lake Red Rock, Iowa's largest man-made lake where you can boat, fish, or swim until your heart's content. Horn's Ferry Hideaway is also adjacent to the 32 acre Gladys Black Bald Eagle Refuge - making for outstanding bird watching.

For other excitement, check out the Sprint Car Capital of the World at Knoxville Raceway, or visit in early May for Pella's famous Tulip Time Festival. Historic Pella is a treat to visit any time of year with countless charming shops, dining options, and historic points of interest. Golfing is always a fun alternative!

We look forward to your visit, and the opportunity to create just the experience you are looking for - a romantic getaway or action-packed vacation!

About Hugh and Tracy Howe

Hello Potential Guests! My wife and I, Hugh and Tracy Howe, own and operate Horn's Ferry Hideaway. We are a small Ma and Pa type business that takes pride in the comfort and details of your stay with us. We have made it our mission to provide the best accommodations in the area for couples, families, and sportsmen to getaway from it all and connect with each other and God's creation. We often hear our guests tell us the cabins and property exceeded their expectations. This is why we have so many repeat customers. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise when you arrive and an unforgettable experience at Lake Red Rock, Iowa's largest lake and public land.

Hugh and Tracy Howe purchased this cabin in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is magic! This is our first time here, but it won't be our last. We spent good times with family and with the outdoors. Did our first experiences with geocaching (loved it!) and took several "roads less traveled" through the woods. "Haven" is the perfect word. Thanks and thanks again. We'll be back!

Watched bald eagles feed steps away from the cabin

This is a special spot! It's close to home and away from it all. My husband and I enjoyed our visit and were talking about our next. The wildlife is more impressive than average in the part of the country.

Excellent cabin choice!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for or a nicer/cleaner cabin, with all the amenities!

What a quiet get away, nature and a peaceful place to relax.

We will definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend this cabin to anyone

looking to get away from the busy world and schedules we all have. We also enjoyed

fishing, the opportunities that Pella has to offer, and mini golf in Knoxville both of which

are very close by. We would give Horns Ferry Hideaway a A+++++

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Owners very accommodating. He thought there was going to be a problem with the water heater and was on top of the situation immediately. It was all taken care of before we arrived. Loved the cabin. Enjoyed the bike trails nearby.
