The absolute best place to spend the holidays in Iowa is at Country Cabins in Chariton Iowa. Located just one mile East of Chariton on Highway 34 across from Red Haw State Park, we offer 8 different themed cabins and 6 themed motel suites. We are open year-round and there is always something to do and see when you stay with us. We have shopping right next door at the Frontier Trading Post and the trails through the timber and really nice for that brisk Fall hike. There are many places to shop in Chariton and also the surrounding towns and there are several Amish stores in the area.

Renting a special cabin or suite if the kids are out of school for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays would be perfect to fill that family get-a-way or staycation. We have themes ranging from Military, Western & Soda Pop Saloon to Harley and Margaritaville. Each tastefully decorated and many have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths so you can really feel like you are right at home. These are not your average tiny motel rooms and each has a full kitchen and outside areas and decks. We offer Dish network and free wi-fi in each room and cabin.







We also offer a small reception hall/motel suite that has two private bedrooms but also is large enough to hold 35-40 people for that family get-together or party. We cater to families, construction crews, hunters and large groups that need bigger rooms or cabins for your stays and events. We have 3 lakes right close by for fishing and recreation and hundreds of acres of public access timber for hunting and hiking with miles of trails.
