About The Rookery Cottage
Our newly renovated rustic cottage is a quiet retreat in the heart of the Middle Raccoon River Valley. Situated on our acreage, the cottage overlooks a prairie and veggie garden. With close proximity to Whiterock Conservancy, guests can easily access hiking and mountain biking trails, or float the nearby river.
A "rookery" is a nesting site for herons, a bird that prefers quiet, undisturbed habitat near water. And so the Rookery Cottage seeks to provide a natural escape from the daily grind.
This building used to be a flower shop and was built using reclaimed barn board and other re-purposed materials. It has comfortable heated floors and an air conditioner. We converted it to a guesthouse in 2016 by installing a new bathroom shower, toilet, and vanity; adding a mini-kitchen with basic amenities (sink, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, electric skillet, & small charcoal grill for outdoor use); and furnishing a living room and bedroom.
The Rookery Cottage can sleep up to six guests. There are two queen beds and a futon.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a TV but no cable or internet at the cottage. And some cell phones will not have service. Relax and unplug!
