You can use regular tableware or avoid cleanup by using the disposable items provided. The open living-family room is equipped with three comfortable sofas and a flat-screen smart TV, on which you can access any of your favorite accounts (Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, Hulu, etc.) or just enjoy 190 channels of cable TV. Please also enjoy the small library with adult and kids’ books and magazines. The master bedroom contains a very comfortable king-size bed, a rocking chair, a huge walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom. The small bedroom downstairs has a Swedish Tempurpedic pressure-relieving queen bed with an adjustable sleep system and massage. To top it off, the entire house has a beautiful custom-designed hardwood floor. We include all the amenities you could need, including linens, towels, soaps, and shampoos, laundry detergent and softener, and more. Plenty of parking spots are available in our large driveway. Elena also has a licensed home bakery and organic products business called Green Life! LLC (greenlifeiowa com). Feel free to email her about her products and prices. All guests receive a 10% discount. If you’d like to have food waiting for you at check-in time, contact her two days before your arrival. If you need child-free time, our seventeen-year-old daughter is happy to look after children with advance notice. She is CPR certified and took a babysitting course at Kirkwood College. She already has a few years of babysitting, and the references could be provided. Please keep in mind that you need to drive about 2 miles on a gravel road to get to our cozy guesthouse from hard-surface roads. I assure you it is a pleasant view way. More

About the neighbourhood
Our guesthouse is in the midst of Iowa farmland, surrounded by fields and woods. There are three houses nearby with quiet neighbors. Half a mile from us is a small river where you can fish for a fun. Right across the road is our farmland, currently in a conservation program. You are welcome to hunt, take walks, and explore. If you come in winter, you’re also welcome to go sledding.
Getting around
We are conveniently located 15 minutes from Kinnick Stadium and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. We offer round-trip rides to the stadium or hospital for $12 per rider. On game days, this is very convenient, since game parking is hard to come by! Our property is 15 minutes from Coral Ridge Mall, which is surrounded by restaurants. There is also easy access to Interstate 218, which you can take south for a 17-minute trip to Riverside Casino & Golf Resort.
