Holidays 1312Located between the Volga and Turkey Rivers in the scenic hills of Clayton County, Coyote Springs Cottage is 11 miles north of Strawberry Point and 4 miles south of Elkader, 1 mile east off of State Highway 13.  Coyote Springs Cottage is a two story limestone home that was built in the 1850’s by the Peter Dunn family who received the land from the United States Government in 1853.  The patriarch of the family, Peter Dunn, was born in County Wicklow, Ireland in 1820, died in 1877 and is buried in St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Elkader.  The Dunn family owned the property up until 1950.  You will see pictures of the Dunns on display at the Cottage when you visit.
