Floating cottage on the upper Mississippi River, located in an off channel harbor in Iowa. Great location for families, fishing, and boating. Complemented with a quite welcoming atmosphere. Wonderful location to get a taste of the Mississippi.

Being our stay was Monday thru Wednesday, the floating cottage was so peaceful! I imagine on a weekend stay, it might be a bit busier. It was exactly perfect for us tho. The cottage is very clean, and inviting. A little nugget of greatness we found was right down the road.. Driscoll's Island.. we recommend soaking in some moonlight there. Definitely look into Codfish Hollow Barnstormers if you are live music lovers. Maquoketa Caves State Park is self guided and free! (Don't lose your map.) ;). We also recommend visiting Tabor winery in Baldwin, excellent! And, the Potter's Mill in Bellevue gets 5 stars for atmosphere, service, and food! We apologize for not making it into the main building to say hello.. just too much go go go. :) Thank you for a fantastic stay, Jerry and Megan!

Beautiful cabin right on the Mississippi River. Everything you need is there for your stay, it's quiet and comfortable and you can fish right outside! Highly recommended.

Great location. Very peaceful sitting on the screened in porch. Enjoyed seeing all the baby turtles off the back deck. Would absolutely stay again.

Everyone in the marina store was very helpful! Peaceful and delightful - I wouldn't be surprised if there was a return visit on our future.

The House Boat is down in a Marina and the staff are super friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed checking out the other boats and the owners were very welcoming.
