Guestbook comments from the owner

Neighborhood is lovely and is very quiet. The host made sure I had everything I needed. She even left a charming welcome gift. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, utensils, and other thoughtful odds and ends (like an apron) that made it easy to cook meals, although I definitely missed having a dishwasher. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Franklin House in Des Moines. This was the cutest little house with everything we could possibly need. Very clean, quiet neighborhood and centrally located..we especially loved being so close to Drake University and Snookies Malt Shop. The extra touch of locally produced chocolates and coffee waiting for us was a wonderful welcome gift!

Lovely stay during winter

  • 5 of 5

We had family members from all over the country returning to Des Moines for Christmas. The location is perfect and convenient for us. It's such a cute little place and was super comfortable for the whole family. There were 6 of us in total plus a child. So glad we found Leslie's place. Will definitely return again if we need to look for a place to stay.
