Amazing little getaway for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had my bachelorette party at the cozy cabin and it was so perfect!! Scott and Carmen are simply amazing hosts, with fresh homemade breakfast in the morning and Scott even helping me get my car out of the small ditch in front with his tractor! Great AC, comfy beds, and the cabin was very clean! Not to mention all their friendly farm animals including the kittens and lab mix Lulu! Would HIGHLY recommend!

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for... thank you...!!!

What a wonderful place to get away...!!!

Being on a family trip, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cabin. For us, it was a nice family "get-away" for a few days.

The hospitality of the property owners is unmatched. Both Ms. Carmen & Mr. Scott are terrific people that went above & beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. They were very generous to share some of their meat/grill-ables with us... and everything was VERY yummy...!!!

Our daughter loved interacting with all of their animals. Mr. Scott even walked with her to interact with some of the larger animals & she was super-excited...!!! When it was time to leave, she was definitely sad to leave her newly-found friends behind.

To cap off the stay, it was wonderful to spend some quality time with the owners around a firepit whilst toasting marshmallows. Learning about their property & sharing stories was a great time for us.

Would recommend this property to everyone. It's nice, quiet, clean... & provides a quick "escape" from the busy-ness that life often brings. Thank you to Ms. Carmen & Mr. Scott for sharing with us... as we hope to see ya both again in the future.

Great hospitality on this cozy farm retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Carmen and Scot's farm! The cabin was comfortable for the five of us, and well stocked with everything we needed to cook dinner. Their property is lovely, and we especially enjoyed watching the animals from the back deck.

Carmen and Scot were exceptional hosts, with prompt communication and thoughtful touches. The weekend breakfast they brought us on Sunday was absolutely a highlight and far exceeded our expectations. I can't recommend this place enough!

Wellman Iowa Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Wellman, Iowa couldn't have been more wonderful! The cabin was perfect! There is nothing so beautiful as an Iowa sunset from the porch of this sweet little place. The farm animals were wonderful...we had visits up close and personal from the cows, horses, chickens and cats. Thanks Kiefer family for allowing us to enjoy your piece of heaven on earth for a little while!
