Amazing trip to the past

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three nights for our wedding anniversary, since we had rented an apartment in the northside when we were first married. The house is an historical landmark, and it has a spacious and unique feel to it. Andrea, the owner, has placed interesting antiques and literary objects (many books too!) throughout the house, adding to the atmosphere. Alexa provided music when asked! Nice touch!

The neighborhood is full of restaurants and a few little shops. Vibrant and lit with fairy lights at night.

Andrea was great about checking in via text to make sure we had everything we needed. We couldn't have asked for a better host.

We left feeling renewed and ready to tackle our next writing project.

Great location in Iowa City!

Beautiful old home. We enjoyed a gorgeous fall weekend for the football game. Andrea is a helpful host and responsive.
