Welcome to Callington Cottage, which is over a century old and completely renovated! Located minutes from the bike trail in Uptown Ankeny in a quiet, safe neighborhood with quaint shops and varied eating establishments within walking distance. Easy access to 80/35 and the Des Moines airport is only 26 min. away. Enjoy the English gardens in spring and summer. This listing is limited to female guests.

The space
You’ll love being minutes away from Des Moines yet enjoying small town life. I think you’ll especially enjoy the bathroom with English wallpaper, vintage tile and an antique washstand. The guest room has foam-topped mattresses and a garden view.

I was born in England but have been in the States since a child. I am a mom to four married sons and Nana to 11 grands! Have been a widow for 6 years. My gift is hospitality and I love to create a charming cozy space for guests. You’ll find me in the garden in spring/summer. I named my home “Callington Cottage” after my hometown in England.
