The cabin was clean and quaint. Be warned!! If you have allergies to synthetic air fresheners alert the owner before you arrive! The cabin is small with 4 rooms (kitchenette, bedroom, sitting room and bathroom) and two glade plug-ins. I had a headache for 2 days and there were screens on 2 windows only, one of which you couldn't open... More

Really enjoyed the paddle wheel cabin on a cold snowy weekend. Very clean, nice views of the river, walking distance to everything in town. I would definitely come back in the summer to enjoy the outdoors more, seems like a lively area. Dubuque is also a short drive with plenty to do.

This is the 10th year we have stayed at the cabins for our anniversary. We have never been disappointed! The cabins are very clean and in a perfect location with enough privacy for couples. There isn't a more relaxing spot than on the back patio of the cabin watching the eagles soar and the barges and boats go by (especially... More

We were happy our Moon River cabin was dog friendly. The kitchenette was spotless and well-equipped. The queen bed had an excellent firm mattress. There was a lack of gas or charcoal grills; all either non-functioning or very dirty. There was an excellent partial view of Ol' Miss. Bellevue itself was spotlessly clean and appeared to be fairly prosperous, probably... More

My wife & I stated two nights in this spacious two bath cabin. We like staying in downtown Bellevue, down from Lock/Dam 12 on the Miss. River. Sun raise is seen over trees on Illinois side. River boats appear majestic as they lock thru. This is an excellent place to stay and unwind.

We stayed in the cabin called The Paddle Wheeler for two nights. A good sized cabin for a couple and maybe an additional kid on the couch (two kids may be crowded). The group of cabins is located between the Mississippi riverbank and the main drag though Bellevue at the south end of town. This is not located in a... More

We had a really terrible experience this past weekend with Moon River. For starters, the cabin was crawling with box elder bugs and giant spiders. There were not screens on any of our windows except one, so I'm not surprised the bug problem was so bad. It was unseasonably warm so the inability to open the windows and get a... More

Box elders all over the place. Killed two very large spiders. Cobwebs like crazy. The owners don't use a computer, just scribble your info...including your credit card...down on a piece of scratch paper. Cabins are really close together so you can hear absolutely everything next door. Windows have an ancient latch that a 5 year old could figure out how... More

Stayed here when everything else was booked in the area. Won't be back. For the price I paid, the kitchen could have at least been spot cleaned. Don't drink the water! For whatever reason the water has an odd smell to it. I've been to the homes of family in other parts of town and the water is not like... More
