The house worked well for our family get together. The kids enjoyed the country setting and the farm animals.

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are very generous and accommodating. The cottage was clean and very "cozy!" There are lots of little extras in the house that made our stay comfortable. Our family enjoyed all the animals on this farm. We will definitely come back!!!

Vacation July 2017

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be exactly as the pictures - very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time. Carmen and Scott were considerate and helpful hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. We stayed in their log cabin home two years ago and had a very nice time, so we returned again this year. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Cozy Cottage.

Great place for our family to all be together at.

  • 4 of 5

The farm house was great. Kids absolutely adored the farm animals, from cats and new kittens, playing fetch with the dog and of course the pigs and new piglets. Every morning they were up and out the door to see what was going on. House was very comfortable. We enjoyed our time.

The very best

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3 rental at this location, this is the best vrbo we have ever rented. We have rented over 25 vrbo around the world and nobody has treated us like the owners of this unit. The unit has great beds, fully furnished kitchen, air, neat interior decor and peaceful country setting. Come enjoy all rural Iowa has to offer, especially ideal for children. (LOTS OF ANIMALS). Simply the best....
