About Sheila

Paul and Sheila operate the vacation rental/retreat, vineyard and winery.

Sheila purchased this house in 2005

Why Sheila chose Iowa

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.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, love the open first floor. Clean bathrooms. Showing a little age in the kitchen appliances but they work, except the ice maker, and perfectly sufficient for our use. This is our third year and we will be back next April. We were able to use the back patio and sit in the nice weather and over looked the pond.

Relaxing, awesome

  • 5 of 5

I thought I left a review but I will leave another as it was so good. The house is big with lots of comfortable beds. Kitchen well stocked, plenty of towels. Large dining table was great for our group of women to sit around and play games. The weather was nice so we enjoyed sitting on the deck. We usually go to different places each time we get together but we may break that routine and come back here. We loved it.

Christmas in February

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for our family to have their Christmas, plenty of room for everyone to spread out and play games, had winter fun outside, the wine tasting was great and little kids loved every minute of the place. Adults loved that everyone had a bed. 2 full kitchens were awesome, refrigerator space was great. . .we have no complaints what so ever. Thank You for all you did for us that weekend. So very accommodating. Will use it again and will tell all our family and friends!

Great for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (18) has stayed here two years in a row to celebrate Christmas and we love this house! Big enough for all of us, comfortable and clean with jacuzzi tubs and a ping pong table as a bonus! Highly recommend!

Sheila was wonderful. This was the third time I have stayed, with two different groups of people. Everyone loved the place, the house, the Vineyard, the decks, the yard. I will be recommending it to all of my friends.

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 available. Out of state hunters must enter the lottery to obtain a liciense 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 opportunities 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 'inkapaduta canoe trail' or check out the 'linngroveiowa.org' website.
