Cedar River Ranch
Letts, Iowa

As proud Iowans, we know how beautiful and sometimes underappreciated the landscape of Iowa can be. With rolling hills, lush forest trails, and breathtaking views of the Cedar River, we believe that Cedar River Ranch encompasses all of the qualities we love about SE Iowa. Cedar River Ranch is the perfect spot for a country-chic wedding, a family reunion, a guys trip or a girls weekend to reconnect with old friends, or just somewhere to steal away for a weekend cabin trip with your family.

With 53 acres of timber and trails along the Cedar River, our cabin rentals are perfect for the outdoor explorer. Plus, with volleyball and basketball courts, tetherball, horseshoes, and a playground, there are plenty of activities for all ages. Roast marshmallows around the fire pit and during the summer season take in an outdoor movie or one of our other seasonal events!


The ranch hosts 5 family loft cabins that hold up to 8 guests, and 4 smaller, studio cabins with room for up to 6 guests each. These 9 cabins have full bathrooms, an open floor plan with beds, a living and dining area, and a kitchenette. Plus, our Cabin #7 boasts 2 bedrooms, a sleeper sofa, and a full kitchen and bath, comfortably sleeping up to 6 guests. OR, book our cozy chalet tucked back in the timber. The chalet can hold up to 4 guests and includes an open floor plan with bed, full kitchen, living/dining area, and bathroom. These cabins and the chalet all include heating & air conditioning for your comfort, plus picnic tables, grills, and access to the fire pit.

Cedar River Ranch Resort & Events Center is owned & operated by Freda & Jim Sojka along with daughter & son-in-law Nikki & Lee Salek (as well as several more family members & friends). Local Iowans will know Freda as the creator of Bug Soother. Freda & Jim sold their company to fellow Iowans EcoLips in the early spring of 2021 to open Cedar River Ranch. Plus, fulfilling a lifelong dream of Freda's, the family opened a transitional sober living community for women in SE Iowa, called Cedar River Haven, as well as Bake & Brew on 92 & The Box Lunch food truck, supporting women in recovery through employment, training, mentorship, community & more!
