Relax & Enjoy: Experience Clayton County with a Peaceful Getaway

When you visit Clayton County, you’ll be in awe of the diverse landscape, historical main streets, and breathtaking views of the Mississippi River. Experience it all, while staying in one of the many cabins and guesthouses located throughout the county.

When you think nature and privacy, think Morning Mist Cabins. Located outside beautiful Edgewood, the two cabins are nestled upon a ridge on 120 acres of rolling Northeast Iowa hills. Both buildings are approximately 3,200 square feet with amenities, including full kitchens, whirlpools, outdoor fire pits, and satellite color televisions. Morning Mist Cabins are the perfect hideouts that will allow you to experience the wonders of Clayton County.

Deer Run Resort in Elkader doubles as an RV park and cottage resort. The cottage sleeps up to eight people, and features a gas fireplace, dishwasher, flat screen satellite television, and central heat and air conditioning, making it the perfect place to stay year round!

Guttenberg is home to the Miners Creek Hideaway with a campground, RV park, and cabin. The site features a wide assortment of campsites from primitive to full hook-up. Not to mention, a fully furnished log cabin! The cabin features a large deck and lawn and an indoor wood burning stove and outdoor grill, making it a prime place to host gatherings both inside and out!

If you’re looking for secluded, top-notch accommodations brimming with natural beauty, look no further than Trickling Waters Retreat in Marquette. They feature three different suites: Pine Lodge, Evening Veranda, and Garden Shed. The quiet, homey suites feature views of the grounds, wireless internet, and much more.

Stay in nature’s secret hideaway with Grumpsters Log Cabin Getaway outside McGregor. Situated in the Mississippi River Valley, the three cabins are nestled in the great outdoors and maintain warm touches and a cozy atmosphere. Open year round, the cabins are in a prime location to begin your excursion into the treasures in McGregor and Clayton County.

The Little House on the Hill is a fully furnished farm house on the outskirts of Volga. Wildlife abounds in the area, and it is a birdwatchers and outdoorsmen’s ideal getaway. The Little House is just a short drive from unique restaurants and gift shops.

And it doesn't end there! Clayton County is home to many more cabins and guesthouses! Check out the Clayton County Development Group for a full listing.
