Staying at this cottage will cause you to unwind and relax in ways you can’t do at home. No hustle, no bustle, no to-do list. Just relax! It’s the antidote to modern life!

Bill and Rhonda are wonderful hosts. The cabin is just as described, rustic but with just enough comfort touches to make it special. Bill showed us everything we needed to know and suggested some wonderful places to eat at which we took his advice on. The cabin is very warm, cozy and relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay there and hope to stay there again someday!

Private, quiet, unique. It’s a gem. Communication with Bill and Rhonda was excellent, and Bill handled the check-in very well. We loved the cabin. We’d suggest 4 or 5 nights, as it took us awhile to get used to “nothing”!! Savanna has 2 excellent breakfast cafes, and Galena is such a cool place to spend a day. Our only issue was the weather didn’t cooperate for a hike through Mississippi Palisades, but nothing Bill and Rhonda could do about that

This was our first airbnb stay and we had a WONDERFUL time at Grandpa's Cabin! Bill and Rhonda are awesome hosts, and the cabin is beautiful. There was something fun to look at everywhere we turned- they obviously have great respect for history and making old things new again! Absolutely loved sitting by the fire pit both nights and looking up at the stars- don't get a chance to see that many in the suburbs of Chicago! We cannot wait to come back for another stay :) Thank you both!

This place is even better than what you would expect from the photos. The log cabin is on a very nice quiet piece of property, and you will probably see rabbits, deer or other animals in the area. The owners are photographers, and Bill is a master woodworker, so you will see all kinds of examples of their work that are nice to look at, and they add to the ambience. Nearby is the Mississippi, and a great state park, so this is a good location for exploring, as well as relaxing. If you are in the area, I would recommend this location over a hotel.

We were there for four days and Bill was there to make our stay a memorable one. There was something in the cabin of interest at every glance. Very beautiful and peaceful. We renewed many friendships during our stay and left with new friends as well. Very comfortable yet everything from days gone by.
