A view in Iowa
So lovely to be up above the English River and look out at the farm landscape all around. That landscape includes pigs and geese and cattle with calves and a miniature horse. Three comfy bedrooms and multiple large gathering places if you are there with a group. We loved being out of town. Our adult children thought it was just perfect.
We thank Carmen and Scott for their kindness to our family.
We loved having the Fisher family!
Great family meeting place
Very nice place we will definitely be back. This turned out to be a great place to meet family halfway and now will likely do it more often. Thank you for your hospitality.
We loved having you!
We had a great time at this cottage in the country.-warm and welcoming!
This was our first VRBO experience and we were very pleased. Carmen was very helpful and we would definitely stay here again.
Perfect weekend stay! Amazing hospitality.
Our group traveled to Iowa for a football game and Carmen’s House was perfect. It was a lovely home, very cute, cozy and clean, and even better than the photos show. The breakfast was amazing and a wonderful start to our day. The animals were such a fun surprise as well! It is about a 25 minute drive to campus. This was hands down one of the best VRBO experiences my husband and I have ever had and we’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in Iowa. Thank you, Carmen!
Great little get away out in the country
Our family of seven stayed at Carmens cozy cottage for the weekend. It's about a half hour from Kinnick Stadium. We enjoyed the homemade farm style breakfast, the farm animals and the comfortable home. We had delicious dinners in Kalona which was only 4 miles away. I would recommend staying here.
Charming, Relaxing, Don't miss this one!
What a relaxing place to stay! Comfy living area and comfy beds, doesn't get any better than that! Oh, but wait....it does! The breakfasts were to die for! More than we expected, more than we deserved. Would recommend this to anyone. And if you have kids, they will LOVE all the animals.
25 miles to U of I Hospital
