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.

Fantastic family vacation place

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with our kids and grandkids was great! The setting was beautiful, very child friendly. The five bedrooms and baths made it perfect for every family to have their own room. Plenty of space in the huge home for eleven people. Sheila and her family were very accommodating. The pond and water 'toys' were the grandkids' favorite. The winery was a nice escape for grandpa and grandma too.

Another great year

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year our large family vacationed at the Linn Grove property and again had a wonderful stay. The house is large enough for all of us (19) and the pond is clean for swimming and great for fishing. The only suggestion I have is that it would be nice to have a tv in the "king room" since the other large bedrooms have a tv. We have already rented the house for our 2017 family vacation.

Beautiful and homey!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our week at Inspiration Vacation Home. The house was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had absolutely everything we needed. The 3 refrigerators were great as we took all of our food and beverages for the week. Our youngest family appreciated the large 2 queen bedroom in the basement where there was plenty of room for their 9 and 6 yr olds along with room for a pac.n play for their 18 month old to nap away from everyone else. Our family members came and left throughout the week but one night we had 22 people sleeping comfortably, some on couches and air mattress. And the pond was phenomenal! We had use of canoes, Kayaks, and paddle boat throughout our stay. Even our 6 yr old had a blast diving off the diving board In the middle of the pond. Sheila and Paul were so helpful making our reservations, answering our questions, and getting us anything we needed. We plan to return sometime!!! Thanks, Sheila, Paul and Caretaker.

Great for big family gatherings!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Sheila and Paul's house! The pictures don't begin to show how spacious the place is. We had 25 people for the day/21 overnight at one point and didn't run out of space. The pond is great for both fishing and swimming. There's great birding and wildlife watching opportunities, and our family made good use of the canoes, kayaks, and the paddle boat. We had an issue with water leaking and they jumped right on it. And the WINE! We really enjoyed tasting their wonderful wine offerings. Everyone loved the place and was talking about planning our return before we were done.

Great time was had by all

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay at this house. 7 women that use that as a chance to reconnect as we are coming from different directions. The house is very clean. It is large and the bedrooms are great as some have two beds. That is a big deal for us. We love the kitchen and dining room. Two refrigerators in the upstairs kitchen is the best. We use those. Bathroom towels are plentiful and good material. We have not been able to sit outside on the deck as the first time it was too cold and the second time too windy. Not the fault of the landlords, just Mother Nature. We are already planning on returning next year.

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.
