24722 FINLEYS LANDING ROAD. SHERRILL, IOWA 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 ROAD, SHERRILL, IOWA

Why The Owner chose Sherrill

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!

It was just like the previews showed on the internet.

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time, everything we wanted except foil, saran wrap. Dan came out and put in a light bulb over his lunch hour and stopped when he went fishing to make sure everything was ok. Dan was a very pleasant person and accommodating. One of the ladies loves trains so that was a plus for her stay. We saw a couple of barges go buy also. We would recommend "Cottage Nestled in Valley with Great Mississippi River View" for young and old. I didn't read the instructions for the cabin, sorry, so I washed the towels. I hope they were dry when someone arrived. I would like to have cleaned the cabin more, but the other ladies wanted to get home. Thank you Phyllis and 5 other ladies

We enjoyed our time at the cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the cabin. The owners forgot that we had booked the property and the key wasn't in the arranged location. It was quite the nervous start to the weekend. Other than the beds could use some serious upgrades we had no issues with the property. It rained pretty much the whole weekend so we didn't get to enjoy much besides the indoors.
