Grumpsters Cabins
Reviewed 15 September 2017

We love this area for the beautiful trees, the river, and the Effigy Mounds. This was our first trip to Grumpsters and it exceeded our expectations. The cabins are clean, comfortable, and so much fun. Will definitely be returning.

I've stayed in the larger cabin twice, and one of the smaller ones once. They are all great! So clean, location is great, fire pit is fantastic - can't say enough good things about these cabins! Very spacious cabins, not too close to each other.

We've been to grumpsters twice now to enjoy the fall colors of n.e. Iowa.
We are going in October again. You'll love the cabins and location. It feels like being in the woods while being in the city.
Enjoy

I love this cabins, tastefully decorated very relaxing. You are close to the convenience of restaurants, movies, Pikes Pike State Park, Effigy Mound and so much more, but yet far enough away from the noise of downtown. You can relax and enjoy nature!
Take yourself away for a relaxing weekend soon!

Room Tip: I love the small cabins! Nice outside sitting area.

Grumpster’s Cabins in McGregor Iowa, is a really nice place to relax and enjoy a woodland retreat. We rented cabin 1, which suited us to a T. We used the grill on our front porch for supper both nights, so I can’t evaluate places to eat in the area, but the ability to eat in made our stay more homey and relaxing. We also enjoyed the jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. What a nice touch for a log cabin! (It did take a l-o-n-g time to fill, though.) The cabin was a little rustic, but not too much. It was very clean and stocked with DVDs and satellite TV. We sat on the porch for quite a while and enjoyed the calm of the mid-September woods
Proprietors were very friendly and recommended several things to do. We hiked in the Effigy Mounds National Monument for a couple of hours, finding some beautiful views overlooking the great Mississippi River. We also drove to Pike’s Peak, Iowa, for more fantastic views of the river. If we had stayed another night, I would have loved to sit in the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit, which had a ready supply of wood for burning. We would have had to supply our own marshmallows, but it was really inviting… next time!
The town itself, less than a mile away is very small and looks like it is starting to come back from some hard times, but there were several shops that were interesting. We would recommend Grumpsters and would revisit it if we were in the area again.

Had a great experience during the Spring & loved the location and convenient accommodations in the cabin. We have a child so TV with DVD makes life easier to relax and enjoy nature & the fire pit. Will be back

Room Tip: Bring lawn chairs to sit around the campfire
