Lakefront cabin rental on Rathbun Lake, Iowa

Sleeping up to four guests, this cabin rental is found on the shores of Rathbun Lake in Iowa, perfect for a rustic getaway with friends or family. There is plenty of space for guests to get around and it is wheelchair-accessible, with large doors and a ramp to ensure easy access. There is a queen-size bedroom, along with a queen-size sleeper sofa and a twin-size sleeper sofa in the living space that can accommodate extra guests if necessary. There is also a full bathroom in the rental with a large shower and a padded seat. The hosts provide lovely linens and towels for guests' convenience.

The comfy living area is fitted with couches and there is also a TV where guests can watch movies, so after a busy day fishing on the lake, guests have the perfect place to kick back and relax. There is also a large kitchen where guests can prepare meals together. Alternatively, they can head outside and grill up a storm on the camping cooker provided. Dining under the stars at the picnic table will be the perfect end to a busy day full of glamping adventures.

As the cabin is situated on a prime location next to Rathbun Lake, guests will be able to participate in a whole host of activities. There are ample opportunities for boating or fishing, with boats and fishing equipment available to rent. Many hiking and cycling trails weave around the grassland around the lake, and the ice-fishing here during the winter is second to none. For those wanting to experience a more urban location, the city of Des Moines is reachable by car in under two hours.

Glampers will find their cabin equipped with everything needed to relax in style. The property offers plenty of rustic charm to ensure that guests make the most of their glamping retreat. While there is no oven, there is a large toaster oven and pizza oven available for guests to use to cook up a storm.

The lakefront location of the property means guests will be able to enjoy plenty of water-based fun during their vacation. Lake Rathbun offers boating and fishing for guests who want to make the most of the water. There are two marinas at the lake, where guests can rent boats or purchase supplies for their own. During the winter, the ice fishing here is second to none. In addition, the trails that surround the lake are perfect for hiking or cycling, and glampers should be sure to pack a picnic. Budding photographers will delight in the opportunities to capture some beautiful shots of the unique wildlife that inhabits this area. There are also three beaches at the lake where guests can relax and catch some rays during the summer months.

The nearby historical towns are wonderful options for guests who would like to soak up some culture. Here, guests will find museums, galleries, and libraries to enjoy. In Ottumwa, there are countless restaurants for when guests fancy a night off from cooking.
