What a beautiful home! It was large / spacious and wonderfully designed with beautiful detailing. My husband said it was relaxing and he enjoyed the views. Our young daughter loved having her own beautiful bedroom and bathroom and abundant space to move about. I truly enjoyed the entire house, the four seasons room in the morning with coffee, looking out the kitchen or dining room windows at the amazing views of the Mississippi river. House was immaculate! I'll always remember Iowa because of where we stayed, and if in town again would love to stay there again. Owners kept in touch. Just classy. Thank you so much!
We are so happy you enjoyed our home and we would love to have you back again in the future!
Two couples and one child. We felt so comfy and so close to new restaurants. It truly was worth every penny. Huge space and comfy beds. The only place we will stay.
Prefect House for Snake Alley Crit!
I race bikes all over the Midwest and this was the prefect house to stay at with my teammates and friends for the annual Sake Alley Criterium! It was nice to be just blocks from the race both before, during, and after the races. Since it was in the 90s I came back to the house to cool down in the AC before my race. LARGE 2 bedroom house (whole first floor) with everything we needed including a great view!
We are please to hear that our home provided you with just what you needed! Our desire is that all of our guest have great experience while staying at our home. Thank you for being wonderful guests and we would love to have you back again next year-or sooner!
Excellent location overlooking mosquito park and the Mississippi river. Great host
We had family stopping into visit us over several days and the house worked out beautifully. The area of town is beautiful with older historic homes. Mosquito park is steps away with georgous views of the Mississippi river. The house had high ceilings and tons of room and places for guests privacy. Angie the host had all of the amenities there and available for our use. The washer and dryer was very handy. The attached garage was perfect to secure your vehicle. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely stay there if we travel back to Burlington. Thank you so much Angie - we had the best time and appreciate all of the attention to detail which made our stay effortless. Loved it !!!
