The Harley Davidson Room

The Harley Davidson Room

Country Cabins and Glamour Camping Resort

Country Cabins and Glamour Camping Resort was constructed with reclaimed and re-purposed building materials and decorated with historic heirlooms of bygone eras. The cabins are located just east of Chariton on Highway 34 adjacent to the Trading Post, Soda Pop Saloon, and Lucas County Welcome Center.

The land surrounding the Country Cabins includes forest and Lake Ellis. Trails lead from the motel through the timber to the lake. There are 10 to 12 sites for campers. Tents are available for sleeping out of doors.

There are five themed suites within the Country Cabins – one is western, one is a tiki themed room with a Polynesian decor, one has a Harley Davidson theme with a “kids love it” Harley camper included in the bedroom custom built with fenders off a 2000 Fatboy Harley. Another of the suites has an actual grill out of a Bentley luxury car.

For more information/reservations, call 641-217-0534. Photos of suites and cabins and more information available at www.country-cabins.com.



This quaint, uniquely designed home is now an overnight lodging located on the corner of 708 Auburn Avenue and Highway 14 in Chariton. Originally built in 1889, the home has two gables, each of which has an outside door. One gable is the parlor or living room and the other is a dining room. The house contains a kitchen, two bedrooms and a small bathroom.

The house has been restored by the Lucas County Arts Council to its original condition. The surrounding grounds have been landscaped and a park-like setting established to complement the home.

The Dual Gables was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

The house is available for daily rental or longer. 641-774-8264 or 641-774-8257.
