House rules

I've undertaken the project of fixing up & living in this old creamery building on the Winnebago River in the rural town of Fertile. Guests have the place to themselves aside from the cats, & I will come by very briefly in the morning each day to feed them in by the front door. Peaceful & thoughtful place.

The space
A historical building curated in an artistic manner with an emphasis on relaxation & reflection. Still rough around the edges, but clean & inspiring. Extensive & eclectic library of books for guests to read.

Upstairs (where your accommodations will be) has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, & a small balcony with a table. The 2 bedrooms are separated by a hallway, but not a door. In the large, main room you'll find a queen sleigh bed. In the smaller room there is a queen bed & a double bed.

The stairs leading to up to the space are quite steep & slick & might not be appropriate for some elderly or health-compromised folks.

There is a lock on the door to the upstairs to give you extra peace of mind.

Downstairs is comprised of 3 living rooms, 1 bathroom & the kitchen.

Guest access
Everywhere except the bedroom downstairs.

Includes everything kitchen-related (bring your own provisions, unless we've discussed meals in advance)

Other things to note
Suitable for retreats.

You can make a bonfire in the yard.

Location

Fertile, Iowa, United States

It's quiet. Rural. There's a park right across the river with picnic tables, a basketball court (can provide a basketball), a horseshoe pitch (can provide two pairs of horseshoes), a dam, waterfall, old mill. Many characteristic gravel roads surrounding Fertile provide opportunities to get lost among low hills, cornfields & prairie. Clear Lake is only a 10 minute drive away. I-90 is 20-25 minutes away, I-35 is 5 minutes away.

During your stay
I live in the creamery, but when guests book I stay elsewhere. I just have to enter the downstairs common area once a day (usually 11am) to feed my cats. I am close by, however, & often available.
