    Better than the Pictures

    Fantastic B&B experience. Beautiful secluded farm along wooded river valley amid traditional Iowa farming community just outside Ames. Terrific hosts and well appointed farmhouse. Clean, quiet, warm hospitality and delicious breakfasts!! Wish we had discovered earlier! What a gem.

    Gorgeous garden home in the corn fields of Aimes

    We were completely unprepared for how beautiful and unique this experience was of the Iowa countryside. We arrived at night after a drive on unpaved yet easily drivable and navigable 3-4 miles of road. The owners were great and easy to contact along the way as plans continued to change. Upon arrival they showed us around the house which is beautiful. There is gorgeous art hung everywhere. The public spaces include: a large comftable living room, outdoor fire pit with seating, dinning area, well-stocked kitchen and my favorite, a screened in porch, which I would discover the next day, overlooked a beautiful garden. Most rooms have bathrooms ensuite. Ours was across the hall but private. The entire house including our room was well furnished, spotless and welcoming. And then there was breakfast ....Wow! Farm fresh eggs were one of many ingredients that made my omelette delicious. We also enjoyed garden tomatoes and fruit. Later that morning I took a run in the cornfields. The owners have mowed a beautiful 1/4 mile path around part of their property. It was gorgeous and beautifully complemented the manicured and much loved gardens around the house. What makes this place even more unique is it’s location. In 10 minutes we were in the middle of downtown Aimes where we would meet our friends the next day. My only regret was that we were only able to stay one night. We will be back.
