  • Piece of paradise!


    We loved our stay here. Looking to get away, unwind and relax? This is the place! Everything was great. Hosts very responsive. Both indoor and outdoor accommodations were top notch. We needed for nothing. Highly recommend!

  • Perfect Spot


    Such a beautiful spot! We had never been to southwest Iowa so it was so great exploring a new area. We brought our two kids. This place had everything to help us enjoy a little weekend getaway!

  • Exactly what we hoped for


    This was a very relaxing aesthetically pleasing place (so many small details to make us comfortable!) So much better than a typical vacation rental. This felt like a home away from home nestled in the woods and near wonderful hiking. We were very happy in the space cooking on the fabulous grill, and in the well-equipped kitchen. The peaceful coziness made for a true break. The beds were comfortable, and the design and layout were wonderful. We had privacy from each other as well as much needed together time as a family. The decks and various sitting areas are pleasant and filled with birdsong and breezes. We hiked Sunset Ridge in Wabaunsee State Park and ate lunch at the Horseshoe Cafe in Sidney. Otherwise, we were happy as can be at this fabulous host's property. I agree with the other reviews - they are attentive and responsive and you enjoy full privacy even though they are next door. The design separates you.

    Enjoyed the property and the surrounding area. During the day went bird watching at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge. Hiked in Blackburn State Park and followed the Loess Bluff Scenic Byway. And at night grilled out on the deck and relaxed in the hot tub. Even though it was quite cool the tub was a perfect 103. Played every game we could find even ping pong and corn hole. Watched movies, read books and took naps. If this is what you’re looking for then this is the place.

  • Lovely hidden getaway


    This is a guest house - the owners live on the same property which initially feels a little close but the backyard wooded area you see in pictures is completely out of view from the main/owners house - so it feels very private.

    The hot tub is a 6-person inflatable and it had us thinking we need to invest in one! While 6 people would fit - 4 is roomy and comfortable.

    In my opinion, the house seemed larger in person than what is depicted in photos - so this was a nice surprise!

    The kitchen is very well stocked. And holy moly, if you find yourself bored staying here I don't know what to tell you! There are games/activities galore - huge jenga, ping pong, bag toss, many many board games, cards, books, etc, etc. There is zero cellular service but the wifi worked great!

    We loved the overall vibe/decor of the house and pets being allowed was a huge bonus!
