About the property

Quaint and Cozy 3BR/2BA house on Broadhorn Farm. Taste country life as our Belted Galloway Cattle and a menagerie of poultry breeds roam the property just behind the original farmhouse at Broadhorn Farm. A few farm cats also patrol for mice and a friendly pet.

Des Moines is just 20 miles north with quick access to I-35, Covered Bridges of Madison Co., Wineries, Brewery, Bike & Water Trails and much more. Welcome to the good life!

Spacious Farm House

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house was perfect for our needs. Close to the interstate and to family in nearby towns. The house is large and had plenty of room for our group. The wifi and cable tv worked perfectly. The kitchen has everything you will need in terms of pots, pans, utensils, even snacks, tea, coffee creamer! We come to the area often and would rent again.

Thankgiving family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family lives in four different states now and we get together once a year for a family holiday each Thanksgiving. This year we rented two Broadhorn farm houses to use, and they worked perfectly for our large gathering. The houses were clean, neat and very well appointed. It had everything we needed to cook for a very large group.

Very quaint, quiet setting!

  • 4 of 5

The house could use a little updating but it was clean and comfortable. My sister and our friend rented it for five nights while we toured around Iowa. We loved the idea of seeing chickens and cows every morning when we left to hit the road. Julie, the owner was so nice and accommodating. We even had fresh eggs in the refrigerator when we arrived! I would definitely stay at the farm house again and hopefully will be able too!

It was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, but busy, time in Iowa and the farmhouse gave us a perfect place to come home to and rest.

Great Thanksgiving Holiday in the Country.

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting relatives for Thanksgiving, and were happy to stay in this property. Our party had eight adults and we had plenty of space in which to be comfortable. We actually made a full Thanksgiving meal there and found all the kitchen utensils we needed. The property is a farm house, but everything was clean and comfortable. The hospitality of the owner was above and beyond. We would recommend this property to anyone needing this type of accommodation in the Des Moines area.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family rented both the farmhouse and neighboring cottage. We had a total of 11 people with room to spare! The house is older and furnishings a bit worn, but for us it made for a more relaxing time since we had our young grandchildren along and we didn't feel like we had to keep them from being kids. We especially appreciated the stocked pantry and farm fresh eggs. Loved having a fire pit, and the owners were kind enough to provide fire wood at no extra cost, and they even had chairs to use around the fire pit. Took us about 25 minutes to get into West Des Moines to visit our family and because it is an easy drive by expressway it wasn't a big deal for us and them to make a few trips back and forth.
