Why Sheila chose Emmetsburg

This property is for those who want to reconnect with family and friends and nature. It is for those who want to experience life in a rural farming community where you can hear the sheep baaahing in the evening, the coyotes yelping at dusk, the eagles and hawks soaring in the day, and millions of stars at night. Renew your spirit. It's time for some innspiration.

What makes this house unique

Be inspired in this relaxing country setting. Ideal for family reunions and retreats. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Five miles of trails connect the vineyards, river access points, and scenic spots on our 370 acre farm.

Beautiful home, gorgeous property

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful home. There is a lot to do...hiking, canoeing, kayaking, wine tasting, campfires... There was plenty of room for our large family. It was very kid friendly. They had mowed several walking trails which we enjoyed. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and plates for a large extended family. The jacuzzis were great- all 3 of them!! They have walk in closets in several of the bedrooms for pack n plays for sleeping babies or extra luggage. The dining table and area is huge so everyone can eat together. The living room was nice and could accommodate a lot of people. Very open space in the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The kitchen has 2 refrigerators for large family gatherings. Sheila, the owner, was very friendly and she offered as much help as we wanted but was very hands off so we could enjoy our family time. I am sure she would have been there more if we wanted though. She was really nice. Beautiful home and property. We loved it!! We definitely will be visiting again!

Large family

  • 5 out of 5
This is an excellent property! Sheila was very helpful and gave some good information on the area. She was very hands off when we were there but I am sure would have been there more if we would have wanted because she was so accommodating. Beautiful home and very accommodating for large families. We tasted some of the wine which was good but will have to go back to check out the winery and some more of the hiking trails. We couldnt believe the price for how beautiful the home was and how wonderful the property was. We will definitely be visiting here again!!

Wonderful extended family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
I am writing his review on the last night of our five day family vacation, because I want to make sure I do justice to this lovely setting. Our extended family of nine had more room than we needed, and were extremely comfortable, even if the weather did not exactly cooperate on this Labor Day weekend.

Each of the five bedrooms had its own bathroom, and there were three hot tubs. There were also walk in showers for us shower lovers, plus a half bath just off the first of two kitchens. This kitchen, on the main floor had two large refrigerators, large counter space, with two double sinks. There were spices aplenty, stove, microwave and dishwasher, which did a great job on the huge dinner plates, a commercial coffee maker (with hot water) and plenty of silverware. Then downstairs, there was another complete kitchen! For three families, it was wonderful.

The kids played in the pond, caught fish (catch and release) from the dock and the boats, used the swings, and played ping pong in the basement.

There is plenty of storage and there are nooks and comfy couches for reading and relaxing. There is literally NO traffic past the house, but keep in mind it is a drive to any groceries, so plan well. We had all divided the meals, and cooked every night on the large gas grill.

One unplanned benefit...there is no tv in the great room, so all the meals required conversation. There are televisions in the bedrooms, but they didn't get used much. The cable and the wifi are great.

The owner/operators are across the pond during the day, but at night, it is just you and the grapevines and sounds of nature. And, if you're too lazy to go the the winery for the live entertainment, just open the screened patio door, and listen from your back deck.

Nice Spacious house in the country

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time here. This house is much bigger than it looks online. With 2 full kitchens, 2 refrigerators in the main one. 2 big master suites on the main level, both with jetted tubs in private baths and a half bath as well. The basement has 3 more private bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms. And there's plenty of room in the basement family room for a couple air mattresses. The owners gave our group of 16 a private winery tour. There was a lot of wildlife to enjoy. Very nice country setting with a pond right in the back yard.

You have put Linn Grove on the map!

  • 5 out of 5
A great place for our generations to gather with families and share our memories and tales of times past with laughter and enjoyment. A relaxed, comfortable home well appointed and cozy, with beautiful surroundings including vineyards, winery & cellar, boating & swimming pond and surrounding farm lands.
Families from California, Florida, Virginia and Iowa enjoyed their reunion and found it well worth their trips to the heartland of America and this wonderful facility.

VRBO Vineyard home with pond.

  • 5 out of 5
Paul & Sheila's home was an excellent fit for our family. Each of our three grown kids, their spouses & our grandchildren had enough space. But better yet- we had wonderful common space to enjoy each other's company. We did our own cooking (each couple prepared one entire meal) and loved the gourmet kitchen, spacious dining facilities & enormous deck. Our Grandchildren we able to fish on the dock with "Docker" a kitty who wandered in. We all enjoyed the pond, kayaking & canoe. We also loved the serene vineyard setting. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home! B&B K & Family 8/2011

The clear water pond is great for swimming and fishing. Vineyards are an integrel part of the landscape. The winery is less than a block away. Our 370 acre timber farm with trails, vineyards, and the Little Sioux River running through it, starts just across the road. If you enjoy an outdoor rural setting this vacation rental is for you.

Innspiration Winery is located on the other side of the pond. Taste the wines. Enjoy a bottle while lounging on the deck. Schedule a winery and vineyard tour. Try your hand at karaoke. Listen to live music on Friday nights during the Summer and Fall.

Hunting pakages available for deer, turkey, and pheasant(call for info). The 370 arce farm adjacent to the vacation rental has 200 acres of timber, 70 acres of wetlands and CRP, and 100 acres of cropland. This farm supports good populations of whitetail deer and turkey. Guide service is avaiable. Out of state hunters must enter the lottery to obtain a licience for deer and turkey.

We are the perfect spot for cross country skiers. There are trails throughout our woods or down to the Little Sioux River. Call for snow conditions.

We see many eagles below the dam in Linn Grove during the winter, and there is an eagles nest about a mile south of the vacation rental so you can see eagles as often as you want.

The Little Sioux River offers oportunities for fishing, floating, canoeing, kayaking, or snowmobiling. We have a private access 1 1/2 mile South of the vacation rental or there are public access areas all along the river. Google 'inkpaduta canoe trail' or check out the 'linngroveiowa.org' website.
