Follow the picturesque path to this adorable fishing cottage. it is not your typical fishing cabin. Sunroom offers a view of Rock Creek State park lake which is a quiet, no wake lake. We have 2 bedrooms , 1 queen size bed, 2 twin beds. The couch in the sunroom is a pull out so you can sleep 2 more there if you need. But that room is sunny, so plan to be up at the break of dawn:)
Property being located on Rock Creek Lake is Perfect for fishing. Anglers love to come here. The lake is wonderful for kayaking, canoeing and fishing boats or pontoons. The marina to ramp the boat you bring is just down the road, less than a mile. However on the north end of the lake there is a shop to rent boats, paddle boats, kayaks or pontoon boats. Also on the north side of the lake is a paved bike trail that goes into Grinnell. This trail is about 7 miles into town.
There is a hiking trail around the lake, which is about 14 miles around the lake. The trail goes through unmanaged woodland and occasional open areas, including some native prairie remnants.
This property is not actually on the lake, but you can see the lake from the sunroom and kitchen area. The home itself offers an enjoyable private deck area. Gas fireplace and reading area. Laundry facilitates. Bathroom shower with rain head. 2 bedrooms , 1 queen bed and 2 singles.
This home is simply furnished encouraging you to enjoy the beauty of the area. We have a garage that has been made into a game room, with game table that includes bumper ball table and set up for card playing. There is also a dart board and foose ball table. We want your experience to be relaxing and fun while at the house. It is a happy place! There is internet, but remember this is a remote area and you probably can not stream on it. Telephones do not get a great signal while inside. But if you stand outside the front door reception is ok. So if you are wanting to do a lot of business while you are here, it probably won't be the best place to come. But if you are coming to relax and get away from the hubbub, this will be a great place to stay.
The property is located with in 7 miles of Oakland Acres golf course and lounge.
The city of Grinnell is about 13 miles away. For the serious hunter the Brownells Company has opened a store . There is a beautiful city pool there for the kids to splash around. The downtown offers several unique shopping experiences and wonderful restaurants. A favorite of mine is the Peppertree Inn, which is an old train depot.
The city of Newton is about 13 miles away also. And for the race car enthusiast the Iowa Speedway offers 3 racing weekends in 2017. A drive in movie theatre still exists in Newton with movies from early spring to fall. The courthouse square offers a variety of boutique stores, and antique stores plus restaurants .
