This is an idyllic, perfect spot and we wanted to live out there. The view is lovely and peaceful, the site is quaint and thoughtful, and the host was gracious and communicative. The rope swing is awesome and the pond is an added bonus to the beautiful and enjoyable recreation area. One of the best places I’ve spent an Iowa night under the stars.

This site was wonderful! Above and beyond our expectations! We loved our stay here. The site is well kept, private & beautifully located in the heart of Iowa’s farmland. We had so much fun swimming in the pond and having bonfires under the stars.
