Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying here. The house was clean, Austin was responsive to any questions we had, and we appreciated how the layout of the house allowed us to do things together as a large group but also have space to separate and have our own space. We would definitely return here again.

So much more than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the lodge for a girls traveling soccer team attending the Muscatine tournament. It was perfect. A huge kitchen with an island that could seat all 15 of them for Cards Against Humanity,. Nice big televisions to watch the Copa America games. Bathrooms well stocked with towels. Plenty of games and fun diversions both inside and outside. And the beautiful, peaceful Iowa countryside. Highly recommended!

Amazing place and management!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lodge for my family to stay during my wedding and graduation. Even before check-in, I knew that I would be leaving these guys a good review. From the very beginning, they were quick to answer my questions and more than willing to accommodate my large family and allow us to use air mattresses in the extra rooms. I was a little worried that the place was a little too far from Iowa City, but when I saw it, I realized it was completely worth it. There were several children in our group, and they loved seeing all of the animals inside, and had a blast catching frogs outside like little kids should. They also have ping-pong, darts, and a pool table downstairs which all of the guys loved while they waited for the girls to get ready for the wedding, as well as on other down time. The house is very spacious, and the rooms upstairs looked comfortable. They also do a good job of providing all of the towels, toilet paper, and other basic living things that you'd need. My expectations were exceeded. This place was amazing, and if I ever need a large place like this for friends or family, I will definitely be looking here first. Just remember that his IS a hunting lodge, so if you're afraid of deer heads and turkeys, or if you mind the occasional far off gun shot, then maybe look elsewhere, otherwise, book this place! My family absolutely loved it!

Wonderful stay. Big roomy house surrounded by fields

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the large cozy lodge. It was both large and cozy. Austin even put up the Christmas tree and decorated the house when he heard that we would be having our family Christmas at his place over Thanksgiving. They have dishes for at least twelve with a dishwasher, laundry, stove and fridge. The lack of WIFI was a real plus because then we spent time talking to each other. Our kids (three under five ) really enjoyed the basement with ping pong and pool.

Property was clean and well maintained. Listing was accurate.

Thanks, we hope to be back.

Yearly Sibling Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My 3 siblings, their spouses, and my husband and I just came home from our 4th annual stay at this property. We love it here! We all love to cook so the huge island in the kitchen is perfect for us. We try to spend as much time outside as possible, taking walks, or playing yard games. We do some target shooting and have a great fire in the outdoor ring every night! But even when the weather doesn't cooperate we play ping pong or pool or cards. Austin and Maria have made our yearly bonding weekends very special times for all of us! We always end the weekend with a trip to Kalona, an Amish community about 30 miles away. I agree the bugs in the basement can be a bit yucky but this is an old farmhouse!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place because it was in the middle of 3 major cities we wanted to see in Iowa. With 3 major cities nearby within an hours drive we had a lot at our finger tips. The home was very nice, and a lot for younger people to do in the basement such as a pool and ping pong table. The best part of the home was the seclusion, just surrounded by country views with nothing but peace and quiet. We are from Chicago so it was what everyone needed, just to get away from everything. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking to get away to some real peace and quiet.
