Three gals stayed in a delightful cabin and had such a great time. The view of the Mississippi river was nice & watched barges passing thru Lock 12. We hiked in local parks, relaxed on deck and patio outside in the evening and early morning with coffee before going out for breakfast. Traveled up to Wisconsin where we crossed back...

FULL DISCLOSURE: I put this down as a "family" trip but some people don't think that a husband, wife and dog count as a family unit. Needless to say, I do not like those people. Now on with the review. CABIN: We stayed at the Paddle Wheel the week after Labor Day as equal parts quiet vacation and 6th anniversary...

I stayed three nights in the "Twain", a very nice little cabin, perfect for two although I was by myself. Beautiful stained glass in the bathroom above the Jacuzzi (which I did not use, the shower being more than adequate.) Nice eating nook and all the utensils and appliances one might need including dishwasher. Bellevue is located around Lock 12...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
