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!

Just Right for our Family of Seven

  • 5 of 5

The farm house is very comfortable. The longer we stayed, the more we loved it. It is not fancy but just right for our short stay in New Virginia.

Quaint farmhouse, lovely accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

The Farmhouse delivers exactly what you need! It's clean and has all the accommodations needed. The bedrooms are spacious, bathrooms sparkling, kitchen is workable. It's not fancy, it's a farmhouse. It was perfect for our girls' weekend! Checking out the bridges, shopping in Winterset, sampling the wineries--it was a great weekend!

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.
