Quiet Cabin With Large Decks And Beautiful Views.
Why Dan Crowson chose Chatfield
This is my Grandparents farm, passed from them to my wonderful parents who in turn, allowed me to purchase it. This land is filled with great family memories.

Rustic, clean & comfy bed!!
Great location for us wanting to fish! Had most of what is needed when flying into a location. Would liked to have an extra hour to check out plus some kitchen towels but over all I would stay again when in the area....
We'll be back!
My Mom and I went for a two night stay. An area we hadn't been before. LOVED it! The privacy, beauty, and simplicity of this cabin and its location, exceeded our expectations. This doesn't take away from our 5 star review, but do want to mention a couple areas that could be improved...Someone else mentioned the musty smell in another review. It was definitely present. Thankfully, the time we were there, it didn't get above 80, so we had the windows open a lot. Which brings me to the next item, some windows had broken cranks and couldn't be opened, and others needed a screen or the screen had holes in it. But we still got plenty open. We had a campfire one night and it was so perfect. The lightning bugs, cricket & frog sounds, occasional Moo from the cows...just great. We didn't mind not having a tv or wifi at all. In fact, that made this trip even better. We played music and games at night, when we weren't out by the fire. Dan (Owner), responded immediately to every question we had leading up to the trip. I don't know when it will be, but already looking forward to getting back there.
The cabin owner was great- getting info. to us immediately after our reservation. The instructions/expectations were very clear, which is greatly appreciated. We were lucky to get a reservation here, our dates just happened to match up with an opening!
My husband and son had a wonderful time! It was a great getaway for the two of them. They fished in the river, explored Mystery Cave, and ate in Lanesboro. They enjoyed the fun decor, and if it hadn't been so hot they would have had a campfire. Great first experience renting thru VRBO.
My husband, my adult children and I had a wonderful time at the Chatfield cabin. The view is unparalleled and the cabin is charming. We stayed for three nights in mid-July. During the days we biked along and tubed down the fabulous Root River Trail. Evenings we enjoyed time back in the cabin— around the campfire, playing board games and enjoying the view. Thanks for sharing this wonderful cabin. Very memorable.
This property was better than described. The views breathtaking while so pastoral. It was as though we were in a living postcard. The dead tree just off the deck was a birdwatchers amphitheater, woodpeckers, robins, grosebeaks, nuthatches, cardinals, wrens, goldfinchs, I wish I had my birdbook. The cows in the pastures, the deer lay resting in the backyard, the wail of the coyotes, the chipmunks and bunnys scampering. And, the winding view and rushing sounds of the creek below...ahhhh...I can go on and on. The cabin, just delightful. When the weather chased us in, we had the same panorama from the giant windows of this quaint cabin. We loved our stay! Thank you to Dan, the owner. Most serene place we've ever been, and we're in our 70s. Applause!
Excellent out of the way location
Really enjoyed our stay at the “Buck Snort”, the seclusion and natural beauty of the site is perfect for us.
One item to mention, the musty smell that’s pretty normal when opening a cabin was quite persistent. On our last visit we opened windows and the place aired out nicely. We opened windows and air improved, but never quite aired out, running the air conditioning seemed to make it worse.
Considering a visit for Autumn leaves.
The Root River Bike Trail is in Lanesboro, which is 7 miles away, or there is also a Root River Bike Trailhead in Fountain, 5 miles away.
No town lights, make for wonderful Star Gazing, with spectacular views on clear nights.
Our campfire ring in the front yard, always has good dry wood available, for roasting Marshmallows and hotdogs.
