  • Beautiful country escape


    We spend my 50th birthday party in this beautiful, spacious country escape. We had 4 couples with plenty of space - huge kitchen, dining, and sitting area on gorgeous main level. I can’t imagine the beauty of this property in the summer, fall and winter! The owners were quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommended!

  • Home is beautiful.


    Youngest son was getting married in a venue 10 minutes away. The house was so amazing. Beautiful 2 way fireplace in Master Bedroom and a kitchen that is a Chef's dream kitchen..

  • Wonderful


    This was our third time staying at this property, and while the reason for getting together was not exactly a happy one (the first anniversary of my dad's passing) it was the perfect place to meet with the whole family. It's a beautiful place to gather and just be with the ones you love. We're big into board games so we love the massive table! We loved sitting out on the screened in porch and watching the wildlife, The kids loved all the space to run outside (and the kitties to pet). The only "complaint" I have (not really a big deal) is when the sun is setting, it's difficult to cook/eat dinner without being blinded by the sun, since there's no blinds to put down (but man I sure hate to block the view!). Thank you for another memorable time with my family, it's what we all needed for this particularly hard gathering.

  • Beautifully secluded!


    We got this property for a girls weekend and it was perfect! Plenty of spaces for us to all gather, chat and play games. The hot tub was amazing in the cold weather and during the snow storm. I would highly recommend.

  • Cherished Getaway


    After two years of being separated from family we were able to all converge back in Iowa for Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend. Timberpine Lodge was exquisite. The craftsmanship, design, attention to detail…it is truly something out of a design magazine. Owners were terrific to work with! Our family came to visit the day after Thanksgiving and every member was blown away. Cozy, creative, and crafted with love. We were blessed to stay here!Thank you,-Stephanie
