Feel of Country in the City

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio

Nestled just on the edge of town on College Drive, this inviting home has the character of a country cabin, but gives you quick access to town. The park-like landscaping in the backyard is not only picturesque, but gives you a peaceful retreat from your backdoor. Children will enjoy the tire swing playset and teepee, but the firepit and the pond with fountain will be a favorite for the adults in the group. The 3D full body massage chair will keep you fully relaxed on your stay.

The space
Four bedrooms with eight beds including a sofa sleeper and also a pack-n-play for small children. Fully outfitted with coffeemaker (pot and K-cup), toaster, dinnerware, cookware, drinkware, knives, utensils, dish soap, hand soap, towels, and shampoo. Also a microwave and an induction cooktop for fast easy cooking. Includes a propane grill on the back deck.

A professional salon sink and chair are available as well as a 3-way full-length mirror for the ladies in your group who want to be pampered.

Country get away
Love the barn style decor of the house. Plenty of room to hang out. Nice massage chair and salon. Our youngest spent alot of time on the tire swing. Some suggestions would be the bunk bed creeks everytime you move so the girls didn’t sleep too well. 😂 And there are house numbers on the mailbox, but you can’t see them if you are coming in late at night so maybe a bigger sign would help. Other than that, loved the place and the stay.

relax, connect, great experience!
Jackson and Amy provide everything a group, or couples, or get-away mini-vacation any time of the year. Very close to Luther Campus-so I could transport my singers easily - to drop off for rehearsals, and even come back to the VRBO for lunch. Good sized- table, for eating and board games. Of course the massage chair is an amazing perk! Having 2 bathrooms was, of course, very important. This is an amazing place-my students and I were very comfortable here.
