Sherrill Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Kick back and get away from it all. This unique beachfront cabin takes on many different personalities depending on which season or even the time of day. Summertime, it is a beachhouse, Fall ,it gives the feel of a cozy cabin nestled in a deep valley at the base of a bluff. The Fall foliage contrasted with the river reflecting the blue sky can be striking. Wintertime ,the stark contrast from the white snowscape outside to the warmth inside really adds to the cozy feeling. Downey Woodpeckers and other wild birds hang out at the feeder. Shopping in Dubuque is a scenic 20 minute drive on paved roads. The Master bedroom is a great place to start the new day. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the bedrooms deck and watch the river light up with the morning sun. The Master queen and the twin/full bedrooms share a toilet and pedastel sink. Downstairs is the double twin bedroom .The main bathroom features an oversized shower with a tankless water heater which provides for long showers. A full sized air mattress with built in electric pump can be placed where needed. The address for your GPS is 24722 Finleys Landing Rd., Sherrill Iowa 52073.

Why The Owner chose Wisconsin

There is not another place like it. Beach, harbor, and cabin with spectacular view on 2 acres is unheard of. Plus it is totally remote yet 15 minutes from shopping.

What makes this cabin unique

Next door is Dubuque County's, Finleys Landing Park . 120 acres of rugged hiking. Climb the 150 foot river bluff for a spectacular view of the Mississipi River valley. For those non-hikers try a 15 minute drive to Balltown, the view from the viewing area is spectacular. While in Balltown check out Breitbachs Country Dining for a meal or drink. It is the oldest tavern in Iowa.

Awesome and memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dan's cabin is in a breathtakingly beautiful location - not to mention that the cabin itself was immaculate, well-stocked, and the property was in extremely well-maintained condition. We were blown away with how nice and clean everything was. We had a great girls weekend and I will definitley be back to this cabin sometime. If my husband is lucky he will get to come next time! HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend staying here for a wonderful ambience and memorable get-away. Thanks Dan!

A well maintained property, very peaceful and picturesque.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay even though the week was rainy. We plan to rent again next year.

We loved the convenient location to Dubuque, Galena and the many rural towns.

It felt like home. Thanks again!

Luv this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 25th anniversary and it was a great choice! Was thinking I would be writing a longer review, but Dan was spot on with the description, so no need for me to ramble on and will just make this short and sweet. All we can say is ‘Wow!’. The location is great. The cabin is great. We will be back Dan!

It was GREAT

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect location for our family. The house, the yard, the river, the sand and the views all were a part of a relaxing, enjoyable long weekend. The house accommodated our family well and with our two young grandchildren, the yard and the screened porch were used often. We highly recommend!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what we were looking for. It's located a little over an hour from our home. Far enough to make it a get-a-way yet close enough that our kids could join us a day or two. The adjacent County Park, with a dock and slips for rent, was ideal as we brought our pontoon boat.

As for the cabin and the grounds itself, the yard is huge and well kept, the plants are beautiful, the screen porch and decks (2) are awesome, the living room/dining room/kitchen area is nice and open. There was plenty of room to cook, eat, play games and lounge together. The satellite TV and WiFi is an added bonus (especially since there is little cell phone service). We loved having a dishwasher, washer & dryer, bedding, towels, a grill with charcoal, all the kitchen items needed and even firewood. We totally over packed.

In the past we've stayed in newer, nicer cabins but this one is our new favorite, it felt like Home.

We had a wonderful time! We will definitely be back!
