Great home to enjoy a quiet and beautiful weekend! The bike trail was perfect for running. Back patio had a fire pit and comfortable seating. Home has lots of natural light. Very cozy and unique! Interesting history being a recording studio!

If you are ready for a slow down, here is your place. Helpfull and friendly hosts. Just about anything you need on premises. Picture esc solitude. Friendly pupper. The Milky Way pouring over the farmland. The best place I have found to stay in Iowa that isn't family.

Such a beautiful place to stay in Jamaica. Very clean and very cozy! I know it’s in a very small town surrounded by crops, but even the view this little home had, made mornings feel so peaceful! You’ll love the stay and I definitely recommend it!
