About Andrew Mosman

We have owned two other properties with 5 star ratings in the Des Moines area. However, due to city code changes, we were unable to continue renting those properties. We are now excited to offer this newest property without the restriction of city codes for benefit of travelers to the great city of Des Moines!

Andrew Mosman purchased this house in 2016

Why Andrew Mosman chose Dallas Center

Being world travelers ourselves, we recognize the desire to have a space that felt "at home" and was a true escape rather then being stuck in a standard hotel room without the amenities we would want at home.

What makes this house unique

This property is a fully functioning horse boarding facility.

A Great Home Base!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property with my extended family while attending a wedding in the Des Moines area. This was the perfect home base for my family. There was plenty of room for three kids (2 and under) to play and plenty of space for everyone. It was also nice to be able to cook rather than take the three littles out all weekend. The only issue we had was difficulty getting the sliding glass door to open/close/lock/unlock, but the owners are aware of the issue and hopefully it will be repaired soon!

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

Charming accommodations in a beautiful setting. Only a couple of very minor complaints: Entrance sliding door was very difficult to open & close. No screens on windows. Weather was mostly cool while we were there and it would have been nice to be able to open windows at night in the bedrooms. Otherwise great!
