Public Hunting ground adjacent to property.
“A very relaxing get-away location. Perfect for if you want peace, quiet, and relaxation. We enjoyed the very comfortable sofas and chairs, watching the very long trains go by (far enough away that they were not loud), playing in the snow, and some good old-fashioned family time. As is common and frequently unavoidable in rural Iowa, the internet is slow. This was a plus for us, but you should be aware of it if you need a fast connection. Misty provided some snacks to welcome us, check-in and out was easy, and everyone (2 kids, 2 adults) was delighted.”

“The cottage is quaint, quiet, and is on a farm with lots of land. Very laid back space. Has an outdoor shower and a clean, well kept outhouse for use. So, is a little rustic but certainly more than adequate & better than a hotel, in my opinion. Location is just about 4 miles to Knoxville which is where I spent my time. There are 2 queen beds. The one in the loft is firm and the one on the bottom level is softer. Bedding, towels, & wash cloths are provided. There are lots of fun vintage accents throughout. A coffee pot with coffee and cups and microwave are provided inside the cottage.”
There is a keypad on the cabin for self check in. We are on 7 acres close to Knoxville and Pella. The cabin is well stocked to meet your basic needs.
“We came down to Knoxville from Minneapolis looking for some peace and quiet outdoors, and this cabin was perfect for that! On our first night we made chili in the awesome kitchen (which had everything you could need) and slept like babies in the comfortable bed. The next day we went for a walk in the woods and spent time visiting with Sue and Daryl, they were delightful and even gifted us with some delicious homemade wine! We went into Des Moines for dinner and drinks, which was a short 45 minute drive from the cabin. Sue and Daryl were available for any questions and gave us some coffee/breakfast and dinner recommendations in the area. Our weekend away couldn't have been better!”
