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.

Der Wohnraum

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!

Zugang für Gäste

30+ miles of hiking and mountain biking trails at Whiterock Conservancy. Easily accessible stretch of the Middle Raccoon River. Dark skies for stargazing. Rolling hills, views of prairie and oak savanna. Two nearby disc golf courses and a 9-hole golf course. Sculpture park. Historic town of Coon Rapids, population 1,200.

Interaktion mit Gästen

Our home and small engine repair business are located on the same acreage. We are people-persons and enjoy meeting our guests. Please feel free to grab us for a chat, otherwise, we are glad to give you plenty of space to just relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.

Weitere wichtige Infos

Our acreage is home to dogs, chickens, cows and honey bees. We also share our space with wildlife. In the evening, it is not uncommon to hear coyotes, owls, whippoorwills, and occasionally a bobcat.

We loved our stay at the Rookery! It was great to be walking distance to trails at Whiterock Conservancy and just a short drive from fall fun at Deal's Orchard. A great slice of quiet country life.

We had a great time, hiking, fishing and enjoying a campfire. Emily and Matt were very helpful and considerate. The cottage was so clean and beautifully put together. It was just what our family was looking for in a weekend away from home.

This was our second stay, and we are already looking at the calendar for our next visit. Emily and Matt are both so friendly and accommodating, and their property could not be in a better place to access the magical Whiterock single track.

My husband and I stayed here for a quick anniversary getaway. We had a wonderful stay! It was peaceful, beautiful, and clean. We explored the hiking trails and enjoyed the quiet nature. Matt and Emily were so warm and welcoming. We will definitely be back and next time we'll bring our kiddos!

My mother and I stumbled upon this peaceful listing out of mere coincidence but it turned out to be the best location we could have possibly stayed at. This place truly is a hidden gem that provides a quiet, peaceful, and scenic get away. We truly enjoyed the natural setting of the Whiterock Conservancy. In addition to the natural setting, the cottage was so comfortable and cozy, we truly had one of the best night's sleep possible. In my opinion, the best part of our stay was the hospitality of our hosts, Emily and Matt. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at home and for that we thank them with all our hearts and we definitely recommend staying at the Cottage!

I am an avid traveler and former Peace Corps volunteer. I have visited 19 countries, most recently Nepal and Ecuador. I love to hear others' travel experiences. My husband, Matt, is an outdoorsman and works for a nonprofit land trust. He knows this area and its hiking trails like the back of his hand. We both enjoy growing our own food, raising chickens, and spending time in nature with our two dogs.
