Come enjoy "The Galvin House" a Century Farm House owned by a single farm family for 140 years in Pleasantville, Iowa. This farm house has several unique qualities that have been preserved over the years. For example the stain glass windows in the Living room, all the door knobs date back to the 1890s, beautiful woodwork through out the entire house, and the eight foot doors off the master bedroom. Come enjoy the big blue sky with all the sounds of the country life style.

The space
We are located one mile East of Pleasantville on a paved highway. It is a 30 minute commute to the Des Moines International Airport. This house is also minutes from Lake Red Rock, Knoxville Raceway, Pella Tulip Time, Bensink's Hunting Preserve and the Indianola Balloon Classic. This property also has a great outdoor living area for relaxing and grilling, along with plenty of yard space for outdoor games and tents. With this outdoor space the property is able to host large gatherings such as 4-H, FFA, and Boy Scouts retreats, large Bible study groups and much, much more. We have two outdoor dog kennels set up in the detached garage for your pets. Keep in mind no pets allowed in the house. Dogs must be approved by House Manager prior to bringing them. It is our goal to share the country/farming lifestyle with our guests.

Guest access
The guests have access to the entire house and yard east of the driveway. There will be signs posted on the property with further guidelines and restrictions. Our family may also use the driveway from time to time for our farm machinery but would never intrude on your space while you stay. You will have plenty of space to park your vehicles, boats, Livestock trailers etc. The outdoor space on this property is large with beautiful trees, flowers, large yard and three tier deck that raps around the back of the house with a gazebo attached to it with furniture and grill for your use.

Other things to note
Red Rock Lake and Knoxville Raceway are a 10-15 minute drive. The Balloon Nationals and Summerset Winery are minutes away too. We offer a lot of space to park vehicles, sprint car crews and Host a large group for a day rental; bridal/baby shower, small meetings, etc..

Thank you for inquiring about the Galvin House. We purchased this farmhouse in 2018. This property was owned by the same family for over 140 years. Our family (who have been longtime friends of the family) would like to share with guests the story about the Galvin/Spalti/Van Helten family as we decorate the home. This property has truly been a labor of Love, we will continue to make improvements and restore the home for guest to enjoy.
