I stayed in the bunkie with my dog, and we had a very relaxing stay! Jessica brought coffee in the morning and we had fun looking at the garden and the chickens. Very peaceful and close to lots of hiking spots!

This was the perfect overnight stay on our way to Seed Savers in Decorah, IA. Jessica was a great host. Attentive, but not intrusive. We took her tour and really enjoyed learning about the history and variety of plants at their homestead. Had a great night's sleep too!

The Bunkie is a perfect quiet stay in a cute town. Plenty of privacy and a big space with huge windows, fure pit, and everything you might need. Jessica and her husband went above and beyond. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend!

We were at the Bunkie on a hot
Summer night. The room was cool and inviting and sweet. The waning moon rose in one of the windows in the wee hours. Jessica was
Responsive,
Generous and a wonderful host. What a delightful experience. We came with mobility issues and she prepared us for that reality. A quiet peaceful night on a comfortable bed with a panoramic window view and an orchestra of nature.

Beautiful property and Jessica was abundantly nice, even offering coffee in the morning. Bed was super comfortable and Bunkie was clean and neat! The ceiling fan helped keep it cool on a very hot summer day! Would love to visit again in the fall!

This was so fun! Bring long pants and socks as we did get poison ivy! Jessica was the best host we could ask for and she and her family were so nice! Bellvue is a wonderful town with good eats and wonderful things to do like fishing! The campsite was small but worked great for our small tent. The bunkie was so, so nice! No AC but a nice ceiling fan and very comfy queen bed with great windows. A wonderful place we highly recommend and will book again!

Jessica was a fantastic host on a very busy holiday weekend! She brought us coffee in the morning and was very respectful of our dog. She made sure all of the patrons at her HipCamp were safe and cared for. The room was perfect for two people and our dog! She even provided cooking ware and started our fire when we returned to camp in the dark. Definitely recommend for a leisurely weekend near the river!
