  • Annual Reunion

    "What a unique property! Don't pass up this oppportunity. The loft is everything it appears to be in the pictures. In addition the community of Lansing is a slice of Americana. We had a group of guys stay a couple nights. The loft provided exactly what we needed. It should be noted this is one large room. It does not provide seperate sleeping quarters. The beds set up all around the area that surronds the pool table. May be awkward if your in mixed company. We took full advantage of the kitchen and deck. Also spent time at several of the bars and taverns. All are with-in easy walking distance. We found all the people in Lansing to be very friendly and eager to visit. Even if your not a Packer fan. Thanks Sharon, We plan to return next year."

  • Loved it!

    "We loved our stay in this cabin. It was comfortable and pleasant. Everything in Okoboji is nearby and there was a lot to do. Daily trips to the water park/pool were loved by the kiddos. I would highly recommend Okoboji and in particular, this cabin, for a no-stress family vacation."

  • Nice Spacious house in the country

    "We had a great time here. This house is much bigger than it looks online. With 2 full kitchens, 2 refrigerators in the main one. 2 big master suites on the main level, both with jetted tubs in private baths and a half bath as well. The basement has 3 more private bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms. And there's plenty of room in the basement family room for a couple air mattresses. The owners gave our group of 16 a private winery tour. There was a lot of wildlife to enjoy. Very nice country setting with a pond right in the back yard."

  • A Family Reunion Spot that is "hard to top!"

    "Fifteen people ( 8 adults and 7 children) recently gathered at The Barn House for a wonderful family reunion. When we were checking out, everyone said, "This place will be hard to top!" (We take turns selecting a place to stay for our reunions.) Truer words were never spoken! When we arrived the house was immaculate, awe-inspiring, and so very spacious! Gerarda and Tony really have a gem here! And they were wonderful to us! They gave us an amazing place to create beautiful memories! The Barn House can never be truly understood through the pics on this site! Let me tell you a few surprises for us. There are 3 levels and an elevator that my 75 year old mother-in-law greatly appreciated. The whole place is beautifully decorated and they include everything you could possibly want…shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, cooking oil, syran wrap, the list goes on and on! We immensely enjoyed preparing several family meals using their professional stove, refrigerator, gas grill and prep area. There were two huge dining room tables inside, as well as, three patio tables on the upper deck and screened-in porch. The fire pit on site was a gathering place each evening for smores and family stories. The huge area on the first floor allowed us to all lounge comfortably as we watched family videos. Tony and Gerarda live next door and respected our privacy throughout our stay. We loved chatting with both of them when they brought over a mounding platter of home baked chocolate oatmeal cookies! My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the loft area since it was our 23 wedding anniversary. What an incredibly gorgeous bedroom. The stunning stained-glass windows, comfy leather reading chairs and private bath and jacuzzi tub made us feel so very pampered! We loved using the nearby walking/bike trail and even spent part of a morning wading in the ankle-deep water. We were close to "The Field of Dreams, Dubuque, and Galena, and were able to explore these places with only a short drive. My husband's aunt said, "I"ve stayed at 7 different VRBO homes all over the country and this one by far has been the best!" She sums up our family's thoughts exactly…The Barn House is simply the best place to stay!"
