188 Abel Drive, Guttenberg, Iowa  52052

Welcome to Abel Island , probably the most unique and beautiful “island” airpark to be found anywhere on the Mississippi River channel. Abel Island is Northeast Iowa’s drive-in, boat-in and fly-in residential oasis located two miles north of Guttenberg, Iowa. Taxi your aircraft and tie down at your doorstep. There is a mix of approximately 100 full time and seasonal waterfront homes on the Abel Island shorelines.

While the Mississippi River channel fronts the island on the east, Bussey Lake provides water frontage on the west, with a 2,600′ lighted turf runway (100′ in width) with overruns at both ends running N/S through the center of the island. The private airstrip is commonly owned by all Abel Island residents. 188 Abel Drive (Lot 90) is a level waterfront lot suitable for new construction located directly on the banks of the Mississippi River channel, with spectacular, uncompromised views of the river and Wisconsin bluffs.

The dimensions of Lot 90 are 73 x 113 with substantial additional space for parking, gardening, camping etc. located directly across Abel Drive.   If you’re looking for a great waterfront lot on which to build your full time or seasonal residence, this could be just the lot you’re looking for.

Or if you prefer, enjoy the existing fishing cottage dating back to the late 1950’s, which has served the present owner’s use for going on 26 years!   The 576 sf cabin is equipped with a galley kitchen, living area, one bedroom and bath.   Private well and septic system.  The property is sold subject to the Abel Island Covenants.
