This is John Wayne’s Hometown and the John Wayne museum. Winterset is the center of all of the Madison county covered bridges.
Winterset is the county seat of Madison county Iowa. We are famous for the Bridges of Madison County and a movie that was made about them starring Clint Eastwood and Meryl Strepte. One of the covered bridges is located nine blocks south of my house in the city park. The city park also has a Evergreen maze, I log house, and Clark Tower with a lot of walking and hiking trails.

    I live in this 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom apartment and have devoted the master bedroom with connected private bathroom and shower to guests. I have an extra high quality blow up mattress and extra sheets as well. So I can host up to 4 guests with two to a bed if you don’t mind one bed being a high quality blow up mattress. Extra mattress brand is Intex and very comfortable. By default I have the room set up with one bed. Apartment Community & Amenities are also very nice and well kept!
    You have a full room, with full walk in closet, and a full bathroom with sink, shower, and toilet all to yourself. I have my own bedroom and use the common bathroom. The common bathroom has a full bath tub as well and you are also welcome to use this bathroom. And you may use the living room, dining room, kitchen, and patio, as well as community center with free coffee 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, fitness center 24/7, outdoor pool 10:00 am - 9:00 pm, picnic area, basketball court, and kids jungle gym. Outdoor pool is available during the summer season only around Memorial Day to Labor Day.
    Central Location equal distance between Jordan Creek to the west and Downtown Des Moines to the east. Both are 10-15 minute drives away. Easy access to Interstate but far enough away noise isn't heard. Also I am walking distance from Valley West Mall and Shopping area including Whole Foods, Target, Mall, 24 Hour local grocer Hy Vee, and many restaurants.
  • We had a quick stay passing through but it was a perfect place to sleep for the night! John was very helpful with directions and ease of getting into the apartment!

    Kelsey2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Clean. Quiet. I slept like a baby. No problem keying in as was directed. This place was 4 minutes away from the 2 day conference venue and $125/day less than the hotel. I couldn't have went if this option had not been available, so thank you so much.

    Fred2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • JohnPaul’s place is great. It’s clean and comfortable. I recommend without reservation.

    Zachary2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Daniel2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was extremely clean and well organized, and JohnPaul was extremely accommodating and made sure my girlfriend and I had everything we needed. His communication was very quick and we would highly recommend staying with JohnPaul if you get the chance!

    Will2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • JohnPaul has a wonderful space that is welcoming and sparkling clean. JohnPaul was also a fantastic host! Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to the Des Moines area.

    Lauren2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • JohnPauls place was exactly what we were looking for. The room has a very comfy bed and plenty of space if I needed to work. The private bathroom/shower was excellent and stocked with any toiletries we needed. Easy to find location and plenty of parking. Will be looking into this place again if we are ever in the area. Thank you!

    Upscale area within walking distance of numerous trails, Bike paths, parks and ponds. This one bedroom space is perfect for one or two people looking for a relaxing space to call home for the evening. The bathroom is right next to the bedroom. I have it stocked with plush towels, and any soaps, shampoos, or amenities you may have forgotten or decided not to pack! Within minutes, you can drive to major shopping and metropolitan areas with both boutique and chain retail stores.
    Upon Entering the front door with your own code, the room to your left is yours from check-in to check-out, also with the same code. The rest of the main floor is yours to share with me. It's just me and I work a lot but if we are around my boxer dog Trooper would love some pets and I always enjoy good company and conversation, otherwise we will stay out of your way and let you enjoy your stay. Trying to eat healthy on the go? - I'd be happy to pick up some meal prep from any of the local meal prep delivery services in our area such as Get Fit Grill (my favorite and local recommendation) - Just let me know and I will have your room fridge stocked with whatever you need, complimentary of course. There are also washer/dryer for use as well on the main floor with different types of detergents. If you have a special request, let me know and I'll pick it up. I honestly will spare no expense I just want you to have a nice stay and choose me over everyone else. :)
    Our neighborhood is a newer development, but there are TONS of exciting upcoming additions to our area such as an entertainment district (Think Power and Light District in Kansas City) within a few miles. The newest IMAX theatre is within walking distance and has dine in options available as well as a bar and other more traditional concessions. My favorite coffee shop is right up the street called "The CoffeeSmith". I recommend a Pablo Honey, or whatever they call that thing where they sprinkle cinnamon on top and torch it. Super delicious.
  • Super simple check in. Went the extra mile to be super clean and accessible. Great stay. Highly recommended.

    Ally2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is my #1 place to stay in Des Moines. This is my third time staying here. You enjoy your stay here all the time. Joe is an amazing host and it's in a great environment as well

    Desmond2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Now, if you want an awesome Airbnb, you’ve got to stay at Joeys place. It is so nice, and Joey is most helpful, accommodating, and generous. I feel blessed to have stopped at his place, on my travels

    Paul2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place you can ever wish to stay. It feels like home away from home. It is a quite and nice neighborhood too. A great place that has all the amenities you will need and also Joe has a great personality and he's open to helping you make your stay comfortable all the time. And his dog trooper is also great. Am definitely staying here anytime I visit Des Moines

    The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The layout is a four level split the bedroom is on the top floor. Kitchen living room other spaces can be used as needed and negotiated. I work part-time so I'll be in and out of the house but you will have access to the house with the key for your convenience.
    The bedroom has a closet and a dresser. Bathroom is on the same floor does include shower or jacuzzi tub if you wish to make use of it. Bathroom door also has a lock on it.
    The neighborhood is residential but there is a Walgreens within a mile. A shopping center with movie theater within 2 miles. There's a grocery store within 2 mi. It's a nice area to take a walk weather permitting.
  • Great place to stay and a wonderful host!

    Michael2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a great experience. I moved to Des Moines on a whim and needed a place to stay for a month. Joel's place could not have been a better landing spot. Joel is a a great host, a talented guy, a good conversationalist when you're in the mood to talk, and a really pleasant housemate. I highly recommend the room at Joel's for anyone staying long term and for anyone just passing through. Joel you rock, thanks again!

    Drew2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Joel is an extremely gracious and helpful host! My room was clean and comfortable, and I even got to wake up to a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning. I would absolutely stay here again if I find myself back in the area!

    This 1920 Log Cabin sits at the beginning of the Madison County Covered Bridges Scenic Byway and features 2 rural country acres of space and a wonderfully remodeled home with loads of character and style. Situated just 10 minutes south of the West Glen area of West Des Moines and 25 minutes from downtown Des Moines, you'll experience the quiet and beauty of rural Iowa while being close enough for shopping or to go out for a nice dinner or evening show. This is truly a great getaway.
    Welcome to your quiet country retreat that's still close enough for all of the wonderful things Des Moines has to offer and enjoy this little property with all its hidden delights. You'll love the open sky with all of the stars at night, hunting for morel mushrooms that pop up behind the main garage in the wooded area, tasting the fruit from the two apple trees and a pear tree in the front yard, and watching all of the different types of wildlife. Across the road you can watch the polo practice, or hop on your bike and get on the Great Western Bike Trail just 2.5 miles from the home on the east side of the interstate. This trail will take you south all the way to Martensdale, or north all the way to Downtown Des Moines and Gray's Lake and the weekend Farmer's Markets. Spend the evening gathered around the large fire pit and private deck, or head on over to the Iowa Distillery or the Cumming Tap for some great local spirits. In this home, you'll feel like you're right in the middle of what is iconic America. It's perfect for a weekend getaway for 2 or for a small family reunion or get-together with friends. There is even a 1-room cabin on the property next to the exterior deck and fire pit, that sleeps one (additional fee of $25 added to the trip for usage...key will be made available upon request). This amazing home will continue to delight, night after night.
    10th Avenue is part of the Madison County Covered Bridges Scenic Byway and is also great for runners with all of its hills and rural scenery. This home is also fairly close to Winterset, Iowa, the birthplace of John Wayne, with it's Americana style town square including The Iowa Theater. Located just 1.5 miles down a gravel road, it's located in the heart of what makes Iowa great— rolling hills and quiet beauty, yet close to Des Moines.
  • Charming and spacious cabin, far enough off the beaten path to feel quiet and relaxing but a short and convenient trip to many area destinations. Very clean and a wonderfully open space in the kitchen/dining area to cook and gather in. Hosts were great communicators before and during the stay.

    Larissa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Has to be my favorite place to stay in the Des Moines area; have stayed here multiple times in the last nine months. So much room and love the theater room downstairs; great place to stretch out! Will be back multiple times especially as the weather gets better so can burn threw some firewood at the great fire pit area! Primo!

    David2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable, super cute decor. Very comfy bed and plenty of tv options. Great little cozy place and very sweet hosts. Short drive to most places and safe area. Great stay.

    Ashley2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was the perfect getaway for a long weekend with my beloved. We cooked in the fully-stocked kitchen, read by the fire in the cozy living room, and had a blast playing foosball and watching a movie on the basement big screen. The soaker tub in the master bathroom is deep and peaceful, and the hospitality was excellent. We will definitely be back!

    Jodi2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Ingrid are really excellent hosts and this cabin is a treasure. We were in Des Moines for work and medical visits and our kids had a wonderful time exploring the property, roasting marshmallows, sledding and just loving the outdoors. We felt right at home and loved every single moment of our stay. The home has everything you could possibly need, is super spacious and incredibly cozy. We hope to stay again on future visits.

    Emily2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Nice lil cozy nook! The house was nice. Just needs a few tweeks in terms of local discovery bc its in a desolate area. So once you are there that’s it, no major stores, gas, restaurants etc in reach. Not too far but a car is def needed. We had a great time in Iowa. A nice ski spot is Seven Oaks. Great staff, lodge, cafe, bar, tubing, slopes... about 45 min drive, totally worth it! Cummings Tap down the road is a local hole in the wall, cash only. Good spot for cold drinks & sports on screen.

    Victoria2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This Airbnb far exceeded our expectations. Absolutely outstanding attention to details. Spacious , clean, and located conveniently to access activities in the Des Moines area. We hope to return when it is warmer to be able to take advantage of the remarkable outdoor spaces.

    Stacey2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home and lovely location. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Had a very cozy warm feel. Very homey and stylish. Loved every minute there wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely going to stay again in the future and recommend to our friends and family.

Hosts were amazing in communication and attention to detail. My only regret is not being able to stay longer. Would recommend 100% and if I'm on another road trip across country will definitely stay again. Thanks!

    Renee2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was our 2nd time staying with John and Sharon and as expected, a great stay! John and Sharon are amazing hosts and we couldn't have asked for more. Their responses are insanely quick and they are always more than willing to answer any questions we may have! The kids had an amazing time in the pool and did not want to get out. A little mini get away is always good and we will definitely be back!

  • Had a great stay for our guys' night out! This place is the perfect slice of country living getaway. John was a fantastic host, very hospitable and accommodating. The place was very clean, well kept, and had excellent amenities. The indoor pool was an excellent touch, especially warm for a nice cold weather swim. John keeps it at about 90 degrees. We didn't use the fire pit, but it's set up to look out over the back of the property.. also a very nice setup. Recommend this place for anyone needing to get right with their soul.

    Carter2019-11-23T00:00:00Z

Tons of space outside featuring a fenced-in back yard and patio, and a large porch with ample natural light and relaxing sunroom.

Also included is a desk, closet space with hangers, iron, ironing board, outlets. The house includes a new HVAC system that will keep you as cool or warm as you'd like.
    I live in the Historic Union Park Neighborhood just northeast of downtown. The perfect location in a quiet neighborhood but just minutes away from the best places of Des Moines.
  • Great place to stay. Nice & quiet. All the things you need to feel at home when you are away.

  • I flew into Des Moines to do some canvassing before the caucuses, and Tanner's place was a quiet, convenient, affordable place to rest my head after long hours walking around the Beaverdale neighborhood. Tanner was home when I checked in, and he gave me a quick tour of the house. Tanner is super nice and welcoming, I felt right at home. Also, the bed was very comfortable. I'd stay at Tanner's again, for sure.

    Andrew2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    A homey, lower-level walk out apartment located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. The owners live in the upper level. Our scenic backyard borders the walking/bike trails along North Walnut Creek. We have easy access to the Interstate and I-235. We are just minutes away from shops, malls and restaurants. Our kitchen is furnished so that you can prepare your own meals. After hosts greet you at their front door, they will escort you around to your own secure, private entrance. : )
    The apt. has about 500 square feet of living space.
    Family neighborhood--quiet street with friendly neighbors. We are close to restaurants, shopping, etc.
  • We had a short but very restful stay in Robert’s home. One of the largest spaces we have enjoyed from AirBnB it would certainly be a great extended stay location. The paved trail outside the back door is a real bonus to get some exercise and enjoy Nature along the creek.

    LeAnn2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was excellent and perfect for us to spend time with our grand baby!! The apartment was very clean. The response time was within minutes. We will be back to stay here again!

  • I really enjoyed staying with Lucy and Rob. They were both there to greet and show me around. Their place was wonderful. It had everything needed for a more than comfortable stay. The location has a nice walking path right outside of the property. The bed and furnishings were excellent. Plenty there to prepare meals with oils, seasonings, etc. Lucy provided great snacks too! I would stay there again. As a matter of fact I have booked again for when I pass thru Des Moines on my return home. Thanks Rob and Lucy!

    Craig2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Sparkling clean is an understatement! This place is really great with all the amenities to have a nice stay! The bed is perfect! Seriously the cleanest air-B&B we have ever stayed at! The host are extremely nice and friendly! They are super responsive to anything you need! The kitchen is set up to do whatever you need. The sitting area is very comfortable! I seriously can’t say enough nice things about this place! Couple FYIs: there is a nearby Walmart, a “Anytime Fitness” is right around the corner, and it is very close to the highway for convenience! If in town, stay here! We’ll be back when passing thru! Enjoy! PS-did we mention that the place was sparkling clean, with all the comforts!

  • Prettiest Victorian with beautiful furnishings. Comfortable bed with luxurious linens. The whole house inside and out was impeccable. A special experience in historic Sherman Hill, which is a gorgeous neighborhood. An easy walk to everything. Convenient to D Line circulator and all the sites that make Des Moines very unique. Loved it. Five Star accommodations at such a great rate.

    Just 2 miles from the Iowa State Fairgrounds and easy Freeway access puts you less than 10 minutes drive to the East Village, 10 to Downtown and roughly 25 minutes to the Des Moines Airport. Check in Sundays from 6:00 PM - 12 AM. Check in all other days 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM. NO early check-ins. Checkout is 10:00 AM. Late checkouts may be possible at $12 per hour late. Guests must make late checkout arrangements before booking. Please ask questions before booking. Thank you!
    The house is a ranch with 3 steps into the house. No hauling luggage to a second floor or basement! No pets live on this property. Your room includes a queen-sized bed, a chair and a half for relaxing, a small chair and desk, hair dryer and basic toiletry supplies. You have shared use of the bathroom, refrigerator, kitchen, the backyard pergola sitting area (May-Oct), and the dining room. There is coffee or tea you can brew in the morning. I provide a wi-fi password when you arrive. The space is shared with me, a professional city employee. Parking is available on the street for free. The neighborhood and street traffic is busy but that is to be expected in town. The Freeway is far enough away to be barely heard. The occasional firetruck or ambulance does go by. If you need total silence to sleep, this property may not suit you. If you can tolerate background noise then you will be fine. I have lived here for years and sleep soundly.
    This is a blue-collar neighborhood, not suburbia or downtown, yet it takes just minutes to drive to attractions and amenities associated with those places. It's a simple life that comes with a simple price-tag. =)
  • Michelle's place had everything I needed for my stay in Des Moines. Close to the interstate and in a nice neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.

    A private bedroom with full size bed that can sleep up to two. Private bathroom next to the bedroom. Free to use the kitchen and utensils, however I ask that you remember this is a shared space and not make the kitchen your primary hangout. You would be sharing the space with me and my dog, a two year old black lab mix.

  • Very clean and quiet place with kitchen and laundry facilities located about 1.5 miles from I-35 with ample shopping and restaurants 1.5 miles the other way on SE 14th St. Justin is very thoughtful and attentive, and he is a master of brief and friendly conversations. His dog, Finn, is very friendly and quiet and spends almost all of the time locked in Justin’s room. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with Finn for 5 minutes 3 times during my 4 day stay, and I was trying to make opportunities to play with the dog. It was a delightful experience, and I plan to stay with Justin every time I visit Des Moines.

  • Spencers place is a great little spot for a quick getaway or to be able to stay for work like I did it’s great for animals as it is on the riverbank and there’s a small far as between the river in the home great for walks and canoeing I wish I would’ve been able to be here when it was a bit warmer as I stayed when it was during the thaw. I highly recommend this place and will definitely stay again

I bet it's an even better experience in the warmer months. We regularly travel through this area, so we plan on staying here again!

  • If you have the opportunity to book this great place or are even just thinking about it... DO. IT. The place is more spacious than we anticipated for a tiny house, it was in a really amazing location off the beaten track near water and wooded areas but also an easy drive to Des Moines. I’ve rented many Airbnb’s in my time and I can assuredly say this one takes the cake. We cannot wait to come back!!!

    6 minutes to Historic Valley Junction, 7 minutes Downtown, and 10 minutes to Jordan Creek Town Center, you'll love the easy access to anywhere in the metro as much as you'll love this beautiful guest suite we've prepared for you. Your private entrance awaits you from the patio of our home. You'll want to stay in bed all day in the gorgeous king size bed, enjoy a long soak in the soaking tub, and watch a movie on the smart TV. Mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker and teas too!
    My husband and I renovate distressed homes in the Des Moines area. In 2017, I got a text from him "There's a brick house for sale on 63rd St, corner lot, lots of nice walnut trees, 3 car garage. It's in such bad shape we aren't even allowed inside to view it. Sounds fun, huh?" We bought it in 2017, gutted it, modernized the interior while keeping some of the wonderful original features like a big brick fireplace and hardwood floors. We moved in early 2018. Summer of 2019, we broke ground on an extension of the house that would become the two guest suites. We are so excited to welcome guests to our home. We have a large concrete patio which is a common space for family, friends, and guests. If you're feeling social, we hope to see you out there.
    It's a lovely, quiet neighborhood with mature trees. Being just a moment away from the interstate, your drive to anywhere in the metro is quick and convenient. Down the street is an entrance into Des Moines' extensive trail system, so you are a few minutes walk from relaxing trails and parks. The house is located at a beautiful crossroad of quiet residential and urban convenience.
  • We had an amazing stay here and will definitely be back! Super comfy, cozy, and clean!

    Bring your own tent. Free wi-fi and electrical outlet, extension cord for outdoor use upon request. Fire pit with grill on site for you, ask about fire wood as supply may vary. Half bath nearby. Bring your own sleeping gear and coolers for food. $1 of your night's stay will go to SILT. I will refund your $1 in cash upon request -- just let me know by the time you arrive. (See silt dot org for info.)
    You can use the grill over our fire pit, outdoor seating, and the table on the patio. There is a privacy fence on one side of the yard, a tall privacy hedge on another, and a 4' high chain link fence across the back; the backyard neighbor almost always has the window coverings closed. Our house takes up most of the other side of the lawn. We ask that you respect and leave our fruit and vegetable beds and gas grill for our use. You may use the rain barrels and bucket to extinguish fires.
    Our backyard camp site is in West Des Moines: 5 minutes or less to I-235, I80/35, and the Jordan Creek area; 15 minutes to downtown Des Moines. Because our neighborhood is quiet, you may hear occasional sports announcers, fireworks, and the rare, noisy dog.
  • Great stay with Julia, she’s super smart and knows tons about the area!

    Lovely Victorian home in Historic district.
    Quiet and well appointed . The kitchen is new and clean. The 4 common area rooms gives you a real feeling of home. The bedrooms are accessed by a vintage but sturdy yet steep staircase.
    24 years and counting, I have watched the urban reboot of the hip downtown scene. Easy interstate, and center city access. Quiet yet historic.
  • Had a great stay!

    Justus2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Really clean and tidy. The furniture and paintings we're obviously selected carefully making for a charming home. Communication was quick and the location is very convenient for downtown Des Moines.

  • Helpful host and neat room. I strongly recommend!

    Shimpei2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

    Cozy one bedroom suite with bath, living area, and kitchen. Bedroom equipped with a queen size bed, office desk, and closet. The living area is equipped with WiFi, 42’ TV with Netflix, and a pull-out sofa for any extra guests. Bathroom is fully stocked with towels and toiletries. Complimentary bottle of wine in room.
    The kitchen is fully yours to use including any plates, dishes, pans, or utensils you may need. You are welcome to use the coffee and tea maker and refrigerator to store items during your stay as well. Please be mindful that there are guests in the upstairs unit - so refraining from any loud or disruptive behavior is appreciated.
    Perfect location being minutes to downtown, the hospitals, Drake University is within sight, the Ingersoll district, and central local. Proximity to I-235 gets you anywhere you want to go in the city or suburbs quickly - public transportation and bikeable distance to downtown make this a great spot for sight seeing or business related trips.
  • This was the perfect place to stay for my first trip to Iowa. Beautiful home with exquisite decor and plenty of nearby stores and restaurants. Only wish I had more time to explore the area (recommend checking out Valley Junction neighborhood)

    Latoya2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with a lot of space. The place was clean and very welcoming with some nice decorative touches. It was close to the Drake campus and there was some college traffic late at night, but overall not too bad noise-wise. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. I had no problems during my stay, and would definitely stay here again. Great value and a very nice place to stay.

Downtown Des Moines as a lot to offer! Great bars and restaurants, shopping, one of the best Farmers Markets in the country and much more!

    Cute little apartment south of Ingersoll Ave. Close to Ingersoll night life and about 6 minutes from Drake. Safe neighborhood, fun area.
    The apartment is in a building that was fully renovated by Archway Properties. We love the architecture of the building and how close it is to everything. Very charming apartment close to the highway.
    Walking distance from many locally owned bars and restaurants like Eatery A, Wellman's, Cheese Bar, Lucky Lotus, Harbinger, Zanzibar's Coffee Adventure, and the Bartender's Handshake. Would highly recommend all of them.
