Guttenberg house description

The Merrick House is a unique, upscale home, architecturally designed to include a portion of the original historic brick structure. It is located in scenic Guttenberg, IA, on River Park Drive with direct access to the Mississippi River, city park and river walk. Guttenberg was listed by Forbes Magazine as one of America's 20 prettiest towns. Relax on on the balcony and watch the barges pass through the lock & dam or enjoy the large outdoor hot tub. There are plenty of things to do in Guttenberg and the surrounding area for every season. Fly into Guttenberg and land at the island airport, enjoy a round of golf at Guttenberg Golf Club and delight in the breathtaking views, visit the Fresh-water Aquarium, Lock & Dam #10, Eagle Preserve, bike or hike. Within 20-35 minutes in either direction you can visit 2 river boat casinos, Pikes Peak State Park, Effigy Mounds State Park, shopping, antiquing, Amish country, and many wonderful restaurants. You can even enjoy a ferry ride across the Mississippi to Cassville, Wisconsin or Captain the owner's pontoon boat moored conveniently just across the park on a private floating dock.

Keywords: Wonderful home in historic Guttenberg, Iowa, just 35 minutes from Dubuque, IA or a 3.5 hour, picturesque drive from either Chicago or Minneapolis.
