Review #20624303 “Secluded Wisconsin Cabin Rental with a view of the Mississippi River!!”
Amazing property, second to none service from the property manager!!  
? ? ? ? ?

This is one of the best properties in the area. Cozy cabin with all the amenities. Enjoy the hot tub looking over the scenic river or entertain from the sprawling deck on upper level. To top it off this property comes with one of the most responsive managers in the business. Anything you need to make your stay more comfortable will be accommodated. A family member left/lost his phone and he found it and overnighted to us immediately. This is the guy you want to do business with in the area. Check out Knutson property services online as he has many to choose from.

Our time at this Secluded Valley cabin was so good that we had to extend our stay while we were there. We did not want to leave!  Our stay had everything we wanted in a cabin experience: a clean, comfortable and roomy space; rustic but new furnishings and decor; convenient access but total privacy and seclusion. 
The cabin is situated in a beautiful spot. Whether it's stargazing from the hot tub, making good use of the fire pit, exploring the nearby landscape on long walks, or spotting wildlife from the deck, you can really make the most of proximity to the natural environment here. If, however, you want to stay inside and take advantage of the well-appointed kitchen, fast wifi, cable television or cozy spaces for spending time together, this is the place to be.
The managers bent over backwards to make our stay the best it could be. From keeping the road and driveway plowed through a terrible winter storm to accommodating us when we didn't want to leave and requested more days at the cabin, there is nothing more they could have done. We don't want to stay anywhere else!


We rented "The Secluded Grove" cabin and oh my gosh, it was a perfect fit for the four of us.  My sister and I and our husbands were delighted with our choice of vacation rentals the minute we finished our initial tour of the cabin and property.  I might mention that my husband has been a general contractor/carpenter for 30 plus years and my brother in law has also been involved in that field of work...building homes, etc.  The guys readily gave "The Grove" a thumbs up!  

    First of all, Eric and his secretary returned our calls promptly when we had questions.  They were kind and obviously cared about the quality of our stay.  We appreciated that!  You won't find a nicer guy to work with than Eric............He wanted us to have a wonderful vacation weekend and we did.  We were never at a loss for things to do or places to eat out and so very happy with the area.  Our dog even kenneled for a short time in Prairie du Chien while we were out and about.
    Next, let me say that the property itself is breathtaking with a beautiful field of grass blowing in the wind just a short distance away from the well kept lawn and outdoor fire pit.  There was even a lovely mowed trail for us to walk the dog.  Speaking of the dog, my husband slept in the basement area that had a walk out patio door which was so convenient for letting the dog out.  She was safe as the area was mowed and the timber a 100 yards or more away.  The basement level also has a warm and cozy family room where we watched TV.  Bedroom and bath on this level are both very nice with plenty of space.
    Spacious is what the entire floor plan seems to be. We enjoyed making our own breakfast and planning our day as we dined on the main level which also includes the master bedroom and bath.  Both are beautifully decorated as is the entire home.  There was so much room for all of us to have privacy or engage in conversation wherever we were and even in the loft area which included another bed.  We had no problems winding down in the evening taking advantage of the beautiful porch views and hot tub and fire place or the fire pit that is on the property.  My husband is very fussy about hot tubs and he had no complaints whatsoever regarding the hot tub.
    Anyway, we plan on returning and will definitely let folks know about this little gem of a rental.  It's a great deal!  Thanks, Eric!

We were at Murph's cabin for a week and had a wonderful time with our family. It is so relaxing and quiet, alot of downtime to just reconnect. The view was amazing and the hottub even better, the sky is so clear at night you can count the stars. Knutson Property Services was great and johnnie on the spot for all of our needs. Thanks so much and we definitely look forward to working with you again


Review #10810780 “Perfect Get Away!”

The cabin is amazing. We spent 4 nights over the New Years and we loved it! The cabin is well hidden for privacy and peace and quiet as well. It is well maintained, clean and roomy. The Kitchen is stocked with all essentials, which we loved. Our dogs loved the daily walks and the hot tub was awesome, especially after a long day of skiing. We will definitely be back, as the place is great and the owners amazing. Thank you!


Review #10757268 “Excellent Setting with Amazing Views” River View Cabin

Our family (5 in all) stayed here in October and had a wonderful time. The cabin is fully furnished including all the kitchen supplies (dishes/pots/pans/etc.) and has enough room for our kids to spread out and enjoy the house without tripping over each other. We grilled out two nights at the cabin and ate in Lansing for the other - you can see the bridge and city lights across the river from the cabin. The views are breathtaking, the cabin is gorgeous inside and out (no roughing it here!!!!) and it is a great place to unplug and unwind. We spent one day touring Gays Mills in search of the perfect apple and another enjoying a fall festival in McGregor. We are already looking forward to a winter excursion here to enjoy the hot tub while watching it snow!

Review #10847538 “Spectacular View!!!”

We chose Eagle View Lodge for a 2 couple get-away for the New Year. There is plenty of space in the house and a large kitchen with TV and a game room downstairs. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace in the cold weather and you just can't beat the view. We were right in the sight-line of eagles and hawks soaring above the water and lost count of the deer we drove past on Eagle mountain. Cabin is on the bluff just above Ferryville and not a far drive to several other Wisconsin and Iowa towns and cities. Eric is very responsive to any questions and is a class A property manager. We had a great time!


Review #10753667 “A Great Cabin Vacation”

The Pines Cabin is awesome
It's a secluded, scenic cabin with an open floor plan that was large enough for our family of 6. It was clean with modern appliances and well stocked with everything you need. The hot tub has clean water put in it after every guest, love that.... If you're looking for a relaxing getaway I highly recommend this place.

Our family stayed at the secluded grove for a week over the 4th of July. It is a beautiful log cabin located up on the ridge. Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful views of nature, and at least a million stars in the sky nightly. The cabin is large. 3 very nice bedrooms, and comfortable beds. The loft is large enough to add a queen blow up mattress if need be. Huge family room on the lower level with dish tv and high speed internet. The craftsmanship of the house is gorgeous. 2 clean modern baths. Big kitchen with everything you would need. The living area is open with vaulted celing and there is a fireplace in the corner to add to the whole cabin experience. This property is clean and well taken care of. The lawn was mowed, and the 6 person hot tub was clean. The property has an amazing wrap around deck that our family lived on, very nice. The managers are great people who will literally roll the red carpet out for their guests. We have stayed in their properties before and wil l continue to do so. Our vacation was a wonderful experience, and this home and the location were the reason why.

Incredibly peaceful and clean, worth every cent.

Our time spent at the Eagle Ridge property in May and June of 2013 was nothing short of fabulous. All of Eric and Lisa’s properties are amazing, each of the cabins are very spacious, clean and well maintained. Beautifully furnished, charming decor, and comfortable furniture. The Kitchen is finely equipped, complete with a coffee pot, waffle iron and pancake griddle, for that perfect morning breakfast on the deck. Nice cookware and plenty of dishes to entertain even a large group of guests. A large gas grill was also available. There were even some fresh spices and dry ingredients that were available for our use in the kitchen. The beds were very comfortable, the bedding was clean and soft, pillows were great too, no stains or odors. Towels were fluffy, soft, and plentiful.

The country setting is a godsend for those seeking a little rest and relaxation. It is very scenic and a wonderful way to reconnect with nature. The properties are located on a ridge, and the drive up is as amazing as the properties themselves. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful deck, in the hot tub, grilling, and playing tee ball with our grandkids in the spacious and well landscaped yard. We did wander into Ferryville, Lansing, and Prairie Du Chien a few times for groceries and a little retail therapy, but none of it was a heavenly as the deck and the sound of a good oldies station on the stereo. For those who aren't completely prepared to go off the grid entirely, there is high speed internet, quick enough to stream movies and check email.

We are looking forward to another visit this year; we have already booked our next adventure! We simply can’t wait to get there and begin another peaceful and relaxing vacation with Knutson Properties. They are available to answer any questions you have, or if you need anything at all, they just roll out the red carpet for their guests. They are truly very nice people and wonderful hosts. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your properties, we will see you soon!

Perfect secluded getaway

We wanted a quiet rural getaway for our family (mom, dad, baby, and dog) and the Grove exceeded our expectations! It was extremely clean, comfortable, and well-appointed -- the kitchen met our every need, the beds were very comfortable, and the wifi (!) was fast. There's also satellite TV, which we didn't use.

We spent our days snowshoeing and our evenings enjoying fireside games and drinks. We didn't use the hot tub, but definitely will next time. We'd love to return, either by ourselves or with a group of friends -- the cabin setup could easily accommodate more than one family of our size comfortably.

There's a loft bedroom, bathroom, and a master bedroom on the main floor (along with kitchen, dining, and living area), and a lower floor with another bedroom, bathroom, and living area. There's a door between the lower and upper levels, so it would be easy for some members of the group to enjoy television while another group enjoys the quiet upstairs.

Also, the views from throughout the upper level are fantastic!

"One great week in Wisconsin."

This was by far the most memorable vacation we have ever had. We spent two nights in Wisconsin Dells at Kalari Resort in the indoor park, then spent the rest of the week at The Grove in Ferryville. It was the single most relaxing 3 days of our lives.
The stay got very interesting when we locked ourselves out of our cabin at midnight while relaxing in the hot tub. We were very lucky to have a nice couple in the cabin next to us that took us in for the night and let us stay in their basement till the next morning. The next morning Eric got the cabin unlocked for us and we enjoyed the rest of our stay.
It is a fantastic cabin, with great views of the starts at night from the hot tub. The Knutson's are great people that take very good care of you while you are there.
I would recommend any of these cabins to anyone looking for some relaxing time away from the stress of the real world. At first we were a little disappointed that there was no TV in the living, but we spent a lot more family time together and really got a chance to spend some quality time together as a family, we flew kits and sit around the fire pit everyday.
I will honestly say, you will never have a more relaxing vacation, and a better place to get away than these cabins. Thanks for everything you did for us. We will be back!

When I think of Heaven I go back to the home we stay at in Ferryville WI. On our first visit we were hooked from there. The home is so warm and inviting that you just never want to leave. We love the home and the area so much that we continue to come back and bring more friends to enjoy what we call our "little piece of heaven." We ride motorcycles and love the roads, the people, the places and everything Ferryville Wisconsin and surrounding areas have to offer.
The owners are fantastic and go out of their way to make their home "yours." If you ever need anything they are just a phone call away. There is so much to do and see, the only thing you ever need here is more time. From sitting on the deck having a few drinks, relaxing in the hot tub, making new memories or just stargazing, the time just seems to fly. 
We have traveled all over the area now and just love to come back time after time.

What a beautiful place to stay and relax.  The entire house was very warm and inviting.  The common areas had plenty of seating for everyone in our party to gather and spend time together.  There was plenty to see and do if you wanted to get away but there is also plenty of room for everyone to get away by themselves too.  The house is furnished with everything you could possibly want and the storage for the motorcycles was a bonus.  Can’t wait to go back.

Eric and Lisa Knutson have been fantastic in taking care of our little getaway - Hidden Creek Cabin. They helped us make many improvements to our cabin including staining, sanding, building a deck, lot and driveway clearing, general maintenance and much more.

We live 4+ hours away and they have saved us many trips and provide excellent services. They are professional and extremely accommodating regarding pricing. Eric and Lisa helped us get our cabin ready for vacation rentals - without their advice, help and management we would not have been able to do this.

We consider Eric and Lisa friends and trust them completely - if you need property management services, want to rent a vacation home or need any services in the Ferryville, WI area - call the Knutson's!

We’ve depended on Eric and the Knutson Property Services staff since we purchased our place years ago.

We highly recommend them.” Phil T.  - Ferryville

My husband and I own a cabin in Ferryville, WI and have employed the services of Knutson Property Services (KPS), directed by Eric Knutson for the past several years.  I am so glad to have found KPS to manage our rental cabin.  KPS is a family owned  business .  Eric employs 4-5 individuals to help him run the business.  They have done a good job in ensuring that the cabin is in good maintenance and cleanliness for renters.  Eric has, on several occasions, suggested ways in which to market the cabin rentals better and to improve the property.  He knows the talents of others in the area and has made recommendations on who would be good to call regard additional services necessary.  He communicates with us periodically and is always willing to help problem solve any situation that presents.

Since we live out of the area, Eric’s services as mentioned have been invaluable to us.  We can certainly recommend the service of KPS to anyone who is looking for a management service.

Please feel free to contact us if you would like any additional information.

Eric--Many thanks to you and your crew for the staining job on our cabin.  We are so pleased with the professionalism of the workers and you as the boss.  When we had questions or concerns, you took those very seriously and helped us find a solution.  Your crew was hard working, quiet, neat, cleaned up after themselves, and friendly.  They knew how to do their jobs and did them very well.  There had been a number of plantings at the base of our home, and I had been concerned that some would be crushed during the process, but not one plant was harmed.  Our staining job is the best this cabin has ever looked in the 11 and a half years we have owned it.  We will definitely recommend your company to others.  We feel like we have gained some new friends in the process.

We have stayed at cabins managed by Knutson Property Management for the last five years. It has been a tradition for my family to escape the daily stress of everyday life to go and relax at one of the cabins. The very first time we stayed at one of the cabins Eric called to make sure we made it safely and everything was as we expected. He let us know that if we needed anything to not hesitate to call him during our stay. The cabin was more than we had expected the pictures we viewed on the website do not do it justice. The cabin was spacious, with fresh linens, pots and pans, with a beautiful hot tub overlooking a peaceful hillside. We have brought many family and friends with us on one of our many stays. All of them have been more than impressed with the outstanding accommodations. We have spent four Thanksgivings and one New Year’s at the Valley, which have all been unbelievably enjoyable. We have made some great memories for our family by spending quality time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We owe this opportunity to Knutson Property Management for making this time possible. We have recommended and will continue to recommend family, friends and coworkers to stay at one of the many cabins that they manage.
