Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Unplug and escape to Elsah. NO WiFi here; we’re too remote! This historic river town sports a general store, historic museum, and expansive views of the Mississippi River (est 1853). Nestled beneath towering limestone bluffs along the Scenic River Road, Elsah is a throw back to forgotten days. Just a walk through town can inspire and relax. The home is furnished with antiques and art. Every room is light-filled and contains wooded scenes.
