Very Comfortable and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

The stay at this farm house was perfect for our needs. We stayed as 4 golfers that were bouncing around Iowa courses so this house gave us a fairly central location. The four bedrooms were nice since we are four middle age men that at some times can be noisy sleepers. We enjoyed the pool, ping pong and comfortable living rooms.

The only warning I would give is don't park under the big tree at the side of the house. Our cars were bombed with bird droppings, but that was our fault and not the fault of this rental.

We had a wonderful time while staying in this house. We stayed here for a robotics competition and when we make it to Super Regionals again we will definitely call Austin and Maria to rent this house from them again!!

Clean, well decorated, beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the family time spent in this home. The home itself is beautiful. Kitchen is well-stocked. Laundry facilities on site. Lots of soft towels. Plenty of space for the family. Four bedrooms. Basement is a perfect game room. Great remote area for the family to spend quality time. If there had been a swingset for our Littles we would have wanted for nothing. Thank you for letting us stay.

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!

Iowa City

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!
