  • Long stay in Fairfax


    This is a fantastic little cottage. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Iowa. Very close to restaurants on the SW side of town, interstate 380 and downtown Cedar Rapids. There is a large park, walking trail and dog park right behind the cottage. The owners are very friendly and Fairfax is a great, quiet little town!

  • Fairfax stay


    The house was close to our family and a good resting place for the week. Everything you need is close by.

  • Great little place with the perfect yard


    Really loved our stay here. The house is small, but has a queen-size bed in a decent sized bed-room and then a futon in the main room that can be pulled out - two small teens slept comfortably on the futon. Cute little kitchen/living area with a smart TV so we still had our netflix. Bathroom had a nice shower with toiletries and towels provided. There were even robes! The only thing we didn't love about the house were the bathroom and bedroom doors - they look awesome because they're sliding wooden barn doors that really add to the atmosphere, but they don't provide a ton of noise privacy...the teens were nervous about being heard in the bathroom and waking me up in the morning. But the yard was great. The house is set back in the backyard of a main house, so you share the yard with the actual home owners, but they were very pleasant and let us have the yard to ourselves when we were there. It feels very remote and private. There is a wooden swing and great firepit and cool lighting, with everything needed to start a fire. We had a great, relaxing time just hanging out and making smores over the fire. We definitely are happy with our decision to stay here instead of in a hotel when we came to town. We plan to use it again if we're ever out that way overnight again!

  • Wonderful stay just outside Cedar Rapids


    This cottage was perfect for my husband and I (and our doggy). Everything we needed and more was provided in this cute, beautifully decorated place. There were snacks and drinks out when we arrived. The friendly owners are in a house nearby but stopped by only to see if we needed anything. It was so relaxing to sit outside in the tree swing and listen to the sounds of a ballgame in the neighboring baseball field. A huge dog park was just a short walk near a great playground and more ball fields. The bed was very comfy and we also enjoyed the TV with lots of viewing options. But the highlight was having my parents and sister join us at the fire pit where we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. So relaxing and peaceful!

  • Little home beside the home


    It’s basically an apartment away from the property you can be pretty loud and nobody will hear you super private and the homeowners were absolutely wonderful and definitely made it known if you need something say something if not we won’t bother you and I can’t tell you how much a relief that is compared to others I’ve been in!
