We had a wonderful stay in the Retreat Shed and enjoyed the property. It was peaceful and quiet with lots of open space. Anna is a great host and we had everything we needed!

Anna and her husband’s land is lovely. Beautiful views of peaceful rolling Iowa hills and farmland. The community building complete with large kitchen, bathrooms with showers, and other guest rooms upstairs was an added bonus! Other campers adequately spaced out. Taking Anna’s pie making class was a special treat. The shed was cozy, comfortable and charming. Felt small at first but so much easier and spacious than a tent plus didn’t have to worry about weather. No AC, but a fan and clever screen door made it doable.. There was plenty of shade and a breeze outside. Hiking and swimming at a couple nice parks about 20 min away. Anna is an exceptional host and always responded promptly!

Anna’s retreat shed was a delightful little camping spot. It’s nestled within a group of pines and smells of wood on the inside as well! There’s a pretty view of the field and a pond in the distance. The kitchen/bathroom was also clean and well stocked, saving the camper from needing to bring along all those extra camping utilities. Anna is also a great host and a friendly conversationalist if the camper so desires! It’s a great spot to get away from the busyness of life for a little reprieve.

Anna’s place was marvelous. She has a farm, and a lovely retreat center that this little cabin is part of. The cabin was warm and cozy despite the cold wintery night! The bathrooms and showers are just a short walk, and very nice. “Glamping” at its best! The host , Anna, is a kind, friendly and warmhearted person. I hope to come back!
