About Barbara

We built our home in 2004. David was very involved in the building and both of us were very involved in the designing of our two level home. Both levels are complete with lots of natural light and plenty of windows overlooking the Upper Iowa River Valley. Each level is a complete living quarters. Our needs have changed so we are now sharing our home with visitors like you, who come to enjoy the Decorah area. David is a painting contractor and Barbara is the Administrator of Windemere Institute of Healing Arts and a Practitioner of the Healing Arts. We have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren and 2 beloved dogs. We live a wonderful life and are happy to share our home with you.

Barbara purchased this condo in 2004

Why Barbara chose Iowa

As a young couple we came to the Decorah area to canoe the Upper Iowa River and enjoy the natural beauty and rich culture. We eventually decided to make Decorah home for our growing family and after being the stewards of a beautiful country homestead near Decorah, we ultimately were led to this location which we dearly love.

What makes this condo unique

We think you will enjoy the peace and beauty of our sanctuary. The views, the gardens, the natural light, the spaciousness and clean and fresh ambiance are here to welcome you.

The property was nice and met our needs.

  • 4 of 5

My son is at Luther College and could not leave for the break due to sports. I made our first full Thanksgiving dinner away from home this year and the property had everything I needed. Nice property and great location.

Location was the best part

  • 3 of 5

The best part of this rental is its location. The view was pretty and peaceful. The cleanliness of the property did not fit the previous reviews, however the owner was quick to clean the bathroom. The bed sheets were worn, but the mattresses were comfortable. Also one bathroom was not enough for a 3 bedroom property. The shower is in a jacuzzi tub and there isn't a shower curtain. It was not a good set up for an elderly person. I wish I could have seen a picture of the shower on the website. The kitchen looks like it's still in the middle of a remodel. The owners were very friendly.
