Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. Lots of room and a great location. We visited Winterset, Elk Horn and the fantastic Neil Smith Wildlife Refuge. We appreciated coming home each night to such a welcoming house. Thanks for the snacks and the eggs!

The Farmhouse setting is great

  • 4 of 5

We loved being on the farm. It was fun to watch the cows watching us as well as the cats and chickens. The chickens were very friendly and greeted us each morning with their chuckles. The house was comfortable...especially the beds. It was surface clean, but could stand a deep cleaning and bathroom updates. The house is near the freeway which makes it handy to travel to the Winterset area, but the freeway and the natural gas plant across the road made it not as quiet as we hoped. But we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Authentic farmhouse with comfortable beds

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic farmhouse experience, this house is for you. There are cows, chickens and cats on the property. The house was like the one I grew up I the 60's and 70's. Beds were very comfortable and it is located right off of IH35 so easy access to Des Moines and Osceola.

Spacious Farm House

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house was perfect for our needs. Close to the interstate and to family in nearby towns. The house is large and had plenty of room for our group. The wifi and cable tv worked perfectly. The kitchen has everything you will need in terms of pots, pans, utensils, even snacks, tea, coffee creamer! We come to the area often and would rent again.

Thankgiving family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family lives in four different states now and we get together once a year for a family holiday each Thanksgiving. This year we rented two Broadhorn farm houses to use, and they worked perfectly for our large gathering. The houses were clean, neat and very well appointed. It had everything we needed to cook for a very large group.

Very quaint, quiet setting!

  • 4 of 5

The house could use a little updating but it was clean and comfortable. My sister and our friend rented it for five nights while we toured around Iowa. We loved the idea of seeing chickens and cows every morning when we left to hit the road. Julie, the owner was so nice and accommodating. We even had fresh eggs in the refrigerator when we arrived! I would definitely stay at the farm house again and hopefully will be able too!
