About Todd & Donna Lensing
Your hosts, Todd & Donna Lensing, have owned the Grandview Motel in Ferryville since 2006. We also have three other vacation properties within a 5 mile radius. We work very hard at providing everything you need for your precious time away. We are also proud of the work of our cleaning team -- Carol & Harry -- they are a super dedicated and important part of why our guests keep coming back.

Why Todd & Donna Lensing chose Ferryville
The view is amazing! Did we mention the Mississippi River is 3 miles wide? The screen porch is one of the most popular assets here. You can relax, bug-free, while you visit with your friends, watch TV, read your book...the list is endless. Right in town but away from the busy bar area. Also, train lovers have the perfect perch for watching them go by. Don't worry, Shoreview is south of the crossing where they blow the horn so that noise is minimal.
What makes this House unique
Our decor is super fun and whimsical! Interior design is a specialty of Donna's and she has an eye for just the right pieces for each spot. It's a very cool vibe inside the house and screen porch. If you ever stayed at this property previously you'll be in for a treat. We installed a fantastic HVAC system for total house comfort year-round. No window A/C or space heaters.

Great location for a bike trip. Took some day trips and went sightseeing. Thought there would be more color, but must be too soon. Maybe would need to wait another week. Still beautiful country. This property is beautiful, overlooking the Mississippi river. Very well maintained and great amenities.
Thanks for choosing our Shoreview Cottage for your visit to Ferryville. Our peak colors are usually more toward the middle/end of October. We're glad to know you enjoyed staying.
Excellent all around!
Great location, new HVAC system, laundry, furniture, and furnishings. Very colorful surroundings in each room. Comfortable home to relax in and view the river after a long day of motorcycle touring.
We choose a different location in Wisconsin every year for our annual ride. This location and accommodations did not disappoint.
We also enjoyed the screened in porch very much.
Thank you again for a wonderful vacation location!
Great place to stay! Views are amazing.
Thanks for staying, and for the special treat 🍷
We just finished spending Memorial weekend at Shoreview in Ferryville. We had the best weekend. The house had everything we needed & more. The owners were above the best at helping us with this trip. The view from the amazing screened in room is gorgeous! We are already try to plan our return visit. Can't wait.
Thank you!!! Your group was fantastic and you are welcome to return anytime. We appreciate your business and the excellent condition you left the house in.
We loved the house and the screened-in porch. Perfect for a quiet weekend!
Thank you for choosing our Shoreview House. We hope you can stay again in the future!
The beds were very comfortable, living space just right. Loved the screened porch!! Loved the decor. We had breakfast at the Swing Inn, good food & very good prices.
Took a bit to get used to trains but definitely not a show stopper!
The stairs are a bit tricky because of how the front door swings opens.
Thank you for spending time with us!! I know the screenporch is the.bomb, glad you had the opportunity to utilize it!! Would love to have you come back and stay again!
Our village is small, but we have a convenience store, bank, post office, pottery shop, and fireworks/tool liquidator store. Market in the Park every Saturday May - Oct. Lansing, Iowa is a 10 minute drive across the river for grocery store, hardware, specialty shops, restaurants.
