Jessica was a fabulous host! My pup and I really enjoyed being tucked into nature, but still really close to the cute downtown of Bellevue. I added the flower/plant identification tour and learned so much and even made delicious strawberry rhubarb pie with the rhubarb I brought home. I definitely foresee my dog and I returning!

We enjoyed Jessica’s hospitality and information about her land and the things that she has been working on since she bought it. It was lovely to go to sleep with the night sounds of the forest.

Beautiful place with many extras!
We really loved this spot! Having a bed with a “campsite” atmosphere was fantastic.
Jessica was a great host and was available for questions and showed a genuine love of her homestead and sharing with others.
The classes offered while we were there was a really neat option as well! My husband really enjoyed the knife sharpening class.
Would really recommend this place and will visit again!

The Bunkie was adorable and fit my needs for a quick overnight. I wish I had more time to stay and explore the farm, but the setting was idyllic and it was cool enough to sleep with the windows open. The bed was super comfy and I loved having an unplugged evening after a long day on the road! Rocket the skunk was an unexpected highlight and the history of the homestead was super intriguing!

This is such a sweet, comfy spot in a friendly and sweet town in a lovely setting. The gardens are beautiful, and Jessica was a flexible and welcoming host, accommodating my very late arrival. My dog loved it too. I only wish we could have been there longer!

Such a cool place! The glamping bunkie is very airy and sunny, and the patio outside is a great touch. Jessica and her husband were incredibly friendly and the tour was great. We are considering a similar set up and it was so great to hear her tips and experience with the place. Highly reccomended!

Wow! I didn’t deserve that.
Goods and services sold but not delivered.
Police called to residence while I was there. Made to feel like I was accused of and/or suspected of some heinous crime detected at the wife and children???
The husband is clearly not supportive of Hipcamp.

Cozy and close to town
We had a cozy weekend stay at Jessica’s! She was a very kind host, and the bunkie was a great spot for us. Her place is tucked against a bluff and close to town. The bunkie is attached to the house, but felt private with the entrance in the back. We look forward to returning when all the flowers are in bloom!

The room was wonderful, very comfortable. It was a little to cold for a fire, but the area was beautiful. Jessica was very nice and welcoming.

Spent a long weekend in the bunkie and it was perfect! Jessica was so friendly and shared so much information about the land, plants, and building's history—I highly recommend adding on a plant identification tour (weather and season permitting—I visited in Fall and was still so pleasantly surprised about how much information and greenery was still around) and some of their amazing handmade soap.

My partner and I had the most lovely time at Jessica's homestead, and I would definitely recommend staying there for a night or (as we did) three. From the moment we arrived, Jessica was an incredible host, telling us about the plants on the property. We woke up the next morning--and every morning thereafter--to a thermos of coffee outside the door. We also paid for the tour of the property and were sent home with bags of seeds and leaves and much more botanical inclination!
The house is surrounded by an impossible array of flora and herbage and trees, all of which Jessica has tons of knowledge on. We were amazed to hear that her family has only occupied the property for a short time. Besides the more cultivated areas, a small patch of woods backs the house, and it was super fun to explore, as was the state park that is only a mile or so away!
Jessica was communicative and kind for our entire stay, and on our departure she even gave me a birthday gift of one of her amazing nature dioramas and a bar of goat milk soap!
We truly couldn't have dreamed of a better place to stay on our small Iowa adventure, and we will be returning as soon as we can.

Loving and Kindness
We came here to reset and spend time with nature. Jessica was a great host and her kindness, wisdom of plants and herbs. It's a must to take her garden tour. We learn so much in learning about gardening, seedings, and herbs. The place is loving. Definitely will come back to camp at her site. The town was a beautiful visit and walk near the river.

Our stay was lovely! Jessica was a fantastic host and the property is wonderful.

Peaceful glamping experience
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!

Lovely artsy and soothing
Lovely place! Clearly, everything was well thought. The owner, Jessica, is an artist, and it shows on her whole property. Was amazing.

Just what we needed
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!

The bunkie was all i could have asked for and more!
