Guttenberg was listed by Forbes Magazine as one of America's 20 prettiest towns. Relax on the 8x20 balcony or lower level porch and watch the barges pass the entry point of 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.

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.
