Lovely!

I needed a place to cook a full Thanksgiving meal for family and friends that couldn't go home for the break - This home was perfect! We loved the farm animals and the beautiful home! Thank you!

Perfect getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Koo Koo nest for a two day mini vacation before school started. I will admit, I was a little nervous about a bed and breakfast but once we got there I realized my worries weren't necessary. Scott and Carmen were so accommodating. Being from Kalona myself I felt like I was just back home staying with family. We stayed in the addition from the main home and it was absolutely perfect for myself, husband and two boys ages 6 and 8. Our favorites were Little Rock, the pig, and Lulu, the non stop fetching dog. Scott was so nice and took the boys for a tractor ride down the road and they also had fun gathering firewood and relaxing by the fire pit. Our two year old black lab was also made to feel welcome and had the time of her life running around the farm. Oh, and the food is amazing!

If you're looking to get outdoors and relax in the fresh air, this is the place to be!!

Beautiful setting and property

  • 5 of 5

This property was very close to the route on RAGBRAI and worked right into our schedule. It is a farm setting and is extremely spacious with excellent accommodations. The breakfast served on Saturday morning was fantastic home-made food. The hosts made us feel like part of the family. We really hope we can return to stay again.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Carmen runs a wonderful Bed & Breakfast! The 2nd floor provides a great meeting area for a family, with 3 separate bedrooms. The property is a fabulous place to 'get away from it all.' The countryside is beautiful and quiet with lots of animals. Our kids even got to feed their baby pig with a bottle! And the breakfasts were DELICIOUS! Will definitely check about staying here again when we are in the area!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very family friendly with plenty of room for the kids to run off energy and play. The animals attracted a lot of attention and received a lot of love from even the most animal shy. Carmen was most accommodating to any want or need. We felt at home and most welcome to share our weekend with them.

Great location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This B & B is located on a working farm. You'll love this location if you are interested in the farm lifestyle. The hosts are warm and welcoming and eager to assist. The morning breakfast was delicious and hardy.

Our family loved this spot and would return without hesitation.
