Green Plains Cabin is a log cabin that dates back to circa 1855, though the exact year of its construction is not certain. The cabin is believed to have been built by Swedish settlers, as suggested by the research conducted by restoration experts who worked on the property in 1989. The cabin had fallen into disrepair before it was restored in 1989, with various renovations undertaken to make it more suitable for modern living. The restoration involved relocating the cabin onto a new foundation and adding contemporary amenities such as electricity, hot and cold running water, heating, and air conditioning. While there are no major plans for future additions or renovations to the property, Sarah Courtright, the current owner of Green Plains Cabin Lodging, has considered restoring an old barn that was dismantled due to safety concerns.

The property was initially a residence for Sarah and her family. However, after living there for ten years, she decided to transform it into a bed and breakfast in the year 2000. Sarah enjoys being able to host guests and meet new people who come to the property. The cabin has multiple decor pieces showcasing Sarah’s Swedish heritage as well.
