The tiny house will be cleaned and sanitized per COVID protocols prior to your arrival. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies are provided for guest use during your stay.Our off the grid 12x14’ cedar cabin sits beside a meadow in a small grove of trees. A freshwater spring runs behind the cabin. There are views of wildlife and woods out the picture window at the front. Woodstove heat, propane cook stove, and drinking water provided inside.

Springside Cabin off-grid farm stay
Mary was an exceptional host--very communicative and accommodating. The cabin itself is a perfect retreat with a well stocked cooking area, a comfy bed, and a serene view. Would definitely return to enjoy Galena, the Maquoketa cave State Park, and the farm.

Very well maintained and clean cabin tucked along the roadside by a cow pasture. It was quiet and peaceful, just what we were looking for!

Springside Cabin off-grid farm stay
Perfect no fuss camping!
My husband and I stayed here for our 15th anniversary. The cabin is absolutely adorable, the property is beautifully peaceful, and the location just outside the city affords both serenity and a wealth of activity options. Being truly off the grid (no phone, no internet) was such a breath of fresh air. We would love to stay again!
