Beautiful Victorian; lots of character
Quiet town, comfortable home with lots of character. The woodwork was beautiful. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy family time. The wrap around porch was a great place to sit and watch the leaves swirl to the ground to be raked in a pile for jumping into with the kids. The porch was also great for Halloween decorations and Trick or Treaters.
Lovely home! Authentic Victorian feel.
We had a large family reunion, some of whom lived in the area so not everyone stayed at the house. Those who did found comfortable beds and lots of room to visit.
The only problem we had was dealing with no TV service. For the purpose of our visit, I considered that a minor irritant.
I'm glad you enjoyed staying in our home! Sorry about the TV. It is going good again now! I found out today that someone had unhooked the HDMI cable from the cable box and hooked it to the DVD player...so of course there was no TV since the cable box wasn't connected to the TV. I'm not sure when this happened, but the guests prior to your arrival had cable TV. So we will be sure to check that each time someone leaves from now on. Thanks again for booking our home!
It was great
I am so glad you had a great stay in our home! We enjoyed having you and would love to have you return anytime! Thanks for booking our home! Darlene
A beautiful home with so much space and character!
We have family in Earlham and Stuart, so this was the perfect location for my family to stay. The home was not only spacious, but it had so much character. We enjoyed having drinks on the swing on the front porch and dinner/games in the dining room. Darlene was amazing! She gave us wonderful ideas of restaurants and things to do. She went out of her way to make sure we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We will be back!
great little town in iowa
We had a great stay in Dexter for the World Pork Expo. This home was well furnished, impeccably clean and all the beds were incredibly comfortable. All the folks in my party remarked about how well they slept here. If I ever need a quick jump off point to Des Moines again, I will stay here! -Note: the folks upstairs said they were a bit hot, but if I remember correctly, everybody found a fan. The house is central AC which works great downstairs, but the upstairs gets warmer (like most 2 story houses).
Adam and his group were great guests. They took good care of my home and were great to work with! You do have to turn the AC a few degrees cooler than normal to get the upstairs comfortable...and the fans do help! We would love to have you come and stay again!
Located just off I-80 in a small town just 15 to 20 minutes from all the activities in West Des Moines, Iowa, including Jordan Creek Mall.
