Year Purchased: 2007
About: I enjoy recreating outdoors and this property is a a great place to start out and return to. I water ski, kayak, swim, and fish the river, or bike, hike, and run nearby parks and trails. The scenery is awesome whether I am on the water, road biking, or hiking in one of the state parks nearby.
Why Guttenberg, IA, USA:
It's fun to just hang around the house if the weather doesn't cooperate or get outside when it does, and return to spacious serenity that invites one to relax and enjoy the comforts of a home with a well equipped kitchen, home theater system, and hot tub.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have tried to allow our clients to have easy access to some of the things I like to do in the area. I've lost count of all the road, mountain, or hybrid bikes (including tandems) I make available free of charge. I also have one large and one smaller pontoon boat available for rent at reasonable prices.
