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 Iowa

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!

This cabin was perfect for our family's get away.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and spacious. The kids enjoyed playing on the beach during the day and roasting marshmallows at night by the fire. The area was quiet and relaxing. The only drawback was the numerous trains that came through at night on the tracks at the end of the property.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin at Finley's Landing was relaxing and private. The large beach in front of the house was a nice surprise. The cabin was well stocked with charcoal, lighter fluid, firewood, games, kitchen supplies/utensils and beach towels. It was an easy drive from Chicago. I will definitely recommend this serene vacation rental to others.

Not a peaceful paradise...

  • 2 of 5

Along with every bed being very uncomfortable, this is not a peaceful get-away, at least not in the summer. Loud partying and drinking at the park which is just on the other side of the bushes, the beach, along with multiple trains every day. It was not family-friendly for those reasons. Also - as often happens, the photos don't represent the realities of the property. We were very disappointed.
