Close to 5 Island Lake/beach, & The Shores where you can rent bicycles & kayaks, have a drink, or golf @ the course next door. You’ll love this space because of the brand new memory foam King bed. Good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), & furry friends (pets). The living area is spacious & there are love seats & a couch where others could relax/rest.

The space
This is a separate Living Room space downstairs with cable TV, access to your own eating space with Microwave, fridge and freezer. There are videos and games, as well as a table that seats 8-10. The bathroom is private and includes a space to ready yourself for an event with hair dryer, curling irons etc. to aide in your endeavors. There is a washer and dryer outside the bathroom for you to use as well.
Need a ride? I am available to provide that service too. We don't have Uber, but if we did, I'd do that too!

Guest access
This space includes a bedroom, kitchen access, living room, and bathroom. Keyless entry is pretty great! I installed it myself! If you don't want the cats in the guest area make sure to keep the door at the top of the steps closed. They both love to "visit" the "forbidden space". Ha!

Other things to note
Don't forget that I have 2 cats, an elderly Siamese (Misi) and a "teenage" Oliver. They shed quite a bit, and unfortunately I can't always be ahead of that. They do love to snuggle and hang out with guests, but if you don't want them in the area I can just keep the door shut upstairs.

Location

Emmetsburg, Iowa, United States

My neighborhood is quiet and has mostly elderly people as it's residents. We live on the main street to the Hospital and connection from the Lake to the highway, so it can be a little busy. There is no overnight parking in Emmetsburg and no parking on 1st Street at all.
The Lake (5 Island) is about 5 blocks to the East of my house a nice distance for a walk. ; )

I am a quirky, artsy, young-for-my-age gal! Love my kids, art students, photography, my furry children, gardening and spending time with family and friends (especially at Little Swan Lake Winery near Estherville) and traveling. Travel? I loved New Zealand! Have traveled in Canada and all across the 50 states. Last summer I traveled through Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico making contacts to plan a creative bus tour! This year, I bought a 21' ISU Cyclone wrapped RV and have made 2 loops through 2 States. Many destinations in my future await! My taste in music is very eclectic--Jazz, Big Band, Blues, Classic Rock, Show tunes (I've been to Broadway and seen various musicals there--Hairspray, Wicked, Gypsy, Chicago, The Producers, etc. In fact, I took 19 art students and 6 adults to NYC a few years ago!). I don't mind some country and "Today's Hits". Not very fond of Rap, and Heavy metal? Only on Fridays after school! Typically I have food in my pantry and freezer that I'm willing to share...need something? Just ask. ; ) My motto? "Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." --John Wesley

During your stay
I'm a pretty good cook and often have leftovers to share! I usually have bottled water, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa and tea available as well. I do provide a toaster for pop tarts/toast and breakfast bars. Need anything else? Just let me know!
