We love our country retreat, and want to share it with you! Perfect for both small or large groups with plenty of space, indoors & out! Enjoy the beautiful countryside along with farm fresh eggs from our own hens. We are located on a prime bicycle route (for experienced bicyclists) and close to the historic Amana Colonies, historic Kalona Village, Coralvile/Iowa City. We're a 25 minute drive to Kinnick Stadium & the University of Iowa/UIHC.

The space
Beautifully restored and renovated early 1900's home, which once served as a coach house.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire home, as well as the acre of property surrounding it, along with LOTS of cool amenities! There are 4 guest bedrooms on the upper level of the home, along with the main bathroom. The fifth guest bedroom with attached full bath is on the main level. The main bathroom is very large, including a separate shower room with soaking tub. All of the other living spaces are on the main level, which include a very large kitchen with dining area, sitting area with wood burning stove, comfortable living room with large tv/dvd/stereo combination, parlor room with organs, and a 1/2 bath/powder room off of the pool deck. There is an enclosed porch with a sitting area and porch swing, along with fitness equipment and a sauna. The deck, pool, hot tub fitness equipment, and sauna are available to those meeting the requirements listed in the house rules. The attached garage, basement, attic, and outbuilding (host living quarters) are off limits to guests.

Other things to note
My husband Brian and I live in a separate building on property. We both work full-time, so are typically only around during the evening hours. We do have a senior aged chocolate lab and an orange cat that are mostly inside our host living quarters, however, you may see them out and about occasionally. There are also backyard chickens that roam the property at their free will. We make sure to give our guests their complete privacy, but are available for assistance if needed.

Location

Oxford, Iowa, United States

We live in a rural setting with a couple of visible neighboring homes and a farm & market across the road. There is a farm and a pasture close by where cows are kept on and off throughout the year. We sit on a semi-busy, paved road, and are 3 miles from the closest small town (Oxford).
