We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this historic farm. It is just outside of town, a scenic and quiet setting. Enjoyed sitting on the porch with morning coffee and catching up on the news. The breakfast was great... danish cooking and being part dutch, it was good to see my ancestors enjoyed good cooking... Recommended...

Rob and Kim, owners, were awesome. We stayed in "Gina's" room. Very comfortable, excellent décor. Breakfasts fantastic - 3 courses with narrative from Rob! The grounds are landscaped beautifully. Nice sitting areas on main floor as well as the 2nd floor.

The room was very nice and relaxing with great amenities. We ate pizza on the front porch and watched the bicyclist go buy. Breakfast was absolutley fabulous and the hosts were personable and informative. This was a great location and we rode our bikes on the Lake Red Rock Trail and to Pella for shopping.

First, the place is immaculate. Well landscaped grounds, beautiful rooms and the nicest innkeepers you could ask for! The breakfasts were regional AND unbelievable tasty. We took home a few of the recipes and they are now staples in our home meals. We will be back !
