Welcome to Trout River Log Cabin, a 19th century Norwegian-built log house nestled in the rolling hills of Northeast Iowa. Perched on a bluff overlooking Trout River valley, just seven miles from downtown Decorah, our farm is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Northeast Iowa. The house is small and simple by today's standards, but we are sure it has everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Watch the sun set from the large porch with its breathtaking views of Trout River, and spend the evening stargazing under a pitch black sky.
Trout River meanders just down the hill from the cabin, and can be accessed by a five minute walk through the woods. We own over a half-mile of stream frontage. Its clear spring water makes for wonderful year-round trout fishing, or swimming and relaxing on a hot summer's day. Our farm makes for wonderful hiking, whether it be on the trails and deer tracks through the oak forest, along the meandering trout stream, or through our several fields of native prairie grasses. The state of Iowa owns 120 acres of public land just down the road available for fishing, hunting and hiking, too. And just a few miles beyond is the large and remote 1,000+ acre Coon Creek Wildlife Management Area. Come stay at one of the prettiest farms in all of the Driftless Region.
