We stayed 2 nights in Marvin's Gardens, the rustic cabin off the beaten path at Four Mounds, and were totally delighted with the experience. My girlfriend made the arrangements as a surprise for my birthday weekend, and she done good! The cabin is secluded and private, but with all the comforts of home, and more: A fully equipped kitchen with all cookware and serving utensils one might need, a great room with fireplace, piano, library, flat-screen TV, all manner of eclectic and unusual decorations and appointments, including snowshoes above the mantel and a wooden canoe overhead in the rafters, a comfortable bedroom with wide windows overlooking the woods and Mississippi River below, and a clean bathroom with shower and tub. The outside deck was spacious and peaceful, with woodland and river views, and quite private enough for very casual attire on a warm August evening or for morning coffee.
The landscaped grounds of the estate are beautiful and well maintained, and we took long leisurely walks through the gardens and along the river overlook trails. We imagine the property would be a wonderful destination any time of the year, and recommend it to couples for a peaceful and romantic getaway, and to families for a fun and different kind of experience.
