4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in a beautiful, rural setting
What makes this House unique
The home has beautiful views of the rolling hills of Madison County. There is abundant wildlife and it is extremely peaceful. The house is situated on a 9 acre working farm. We have several laying hens and a rooster (let us know if you'd like some eggs!). In the warmer months, we are home to a small CSA garden (community supported agriculture) run by Speckled Hen Farm. CSA pickups occur on Sunday afternoons in the kennel building. There will also occasionally be a pop-up farm store in the kennel, with fresh produce and other fun items for sale. The happenings of the CSA will not impact your stay - we value your privacy and all of the activity will happen far away from the house! You are welcome to visit the store and bring home some goodies!

Sisters weekend was a success
Harriets house was perfect for my 5 sisters & I to get together. The amenities were great & the country setting was beautiful! I have stayed at several VRBO’s but this is my favorite so far. The only thing that was missing was outdoor furniture but because we knew that from previous reviews it was no big deal to bring our bag chairs. Thank you Luann for making our weekend so enjoyable!
Beautiful location for our group!
We stayed here for a week following Memorial Day and loved every minute of it. Luann was excellent in answering our questions and accommodating our check-in and check-out needs. We were a group of 8, and found the house to be perfect for us. We most enjoyed grilling during the day, using the firepit at night, and visiting the farm store on the weekends.
We feel lucky to have found such a unique place from which to experience the scenery and sights of Winterset, and would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area!
Moms weekend away
The beds are super comfy and the kitchen and master bath are updated and beautiful. The chickens and roosters are near the house, but we didn't hear the rooster crow until 8:30am or so. We kept saying he was the most considerate rooster, ever! We really enjoyed staying at this house while visiting the covered bridges of Madison County. We enjoyed the tranquil country side and time to relax and visit with one another and no distractions.
The only negative was a foul smell coming from the drains in the bathrooms, possibly from the septic system. It had the smell of raw sewage that permeated the master bedroom at night.
Had a great stay!
Very nice rental. Clean and updated. Owners are very nice and accommodating. Will definitely stay there again next year on our trip!
Beautiful location great home!
This home has everything you need and a location setting that is beautiful. We stayed over Thanksgiving break while visiting family in Winterset. Having 4 bedrooms and 2 baths with a lovely modern kitchen, living space and laundry was a delight over staying in a cramped hotel room with kids. Our hosts were amazing and gave us a tour of the historic barn on the property which was a highlight of the trip for everyone.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We were so happy we got the chance to meet you. Hope you'll come back!
We had a great time! This property was perfect for our sister weekend! Vert accommodating.
Very accommodating. The owner was very nice and provided us with everything we needed. We were even sent all kinds of activities and attractions to participate in. Will definitely come back!
