Description

The space

The space is two quiet and private rooms on the third story of our century old home. The rooms are adjoined by a full bathroom. We happily provide sheets, towels and the basic essentials. You will have the third floor all to yourself.

Feel free to relax on the patio or make a meal in the kitchen. Extended stay guests may also use the laundry located in the basement. Plenty of street parking is available for guest use.

We love Des Moines and are happy to give directions or offer advice about the city. We are an active couple and may be in and out during your stay, but please feel free to make yourself at home.

Our neighborhood is active and friendly. Located on a boulevard, it is the perfect place for a jog or stroll. We are walking distance from local bars and restaurants, as well as Drake's campus.

Interstate 235 is a two minute drive, and from there Downtown and West Des Moines are right around the corner. The airport is 15 minutes away.

We have a small mix breed dog named Bruce who will be around during your stay. He keeps to himself, but is always up to play a little fetch in our fenced in front yard.

Many of our fixtures are original, and guests should note that with antique charm comes a little antique quirkiness :)

Whitney and Ted are wonderful hosts. They have a comfortable, laid-back style and offer a place that reflects that. Their home is in a great central location in Des Moines, and it's easy to get anywhere in the city. Communication was excellent, and they were very accommodating when I missed my connecting flight to Des Moines and had to arrive the next day. The room had all the basics, and an awesome claw-foot tub in the bathroom. It felt private and comfortable in that third floor space, with great light. Recommended!

I actually had to cancel my trip but the hosts were extremely nice and communicative about the whole situation. Very happy with my interactions with them. I will definitely stay with them next time.

We love Whitney and Ted's place, their beautiful historic home was clean, spacious and comfortable. They are just walking distance from shops, restaurants and other conveniences. Their quiet and safe neighborhood was exactly what we were looking for after a long day. We would highly recommend this spot.
