Complimentary coffee, tea, (cook yourself) all the farm fresh eggs you can eat from my happy, cage free hens, pancake mix, Oatmeal, milk, bread, fruit, etc. Sometimes, if I'm around, I'll whip up breakfast for guests but can't all the time.
Interaction with guests
I work a lot but am usually here on weekends and evenings, working on the farm. I'm involved in a lot of fun local activities so I feel relatively confident I can point you in the right direction for charming local attractions. I'm very easy going; simply respect my house and things and we will get along well. I've traveled extensively and love staying at Airbnbs so its nice to pass on friendly hospitality. I am very social so if you would like to have a chat and a drink, or watch a movie/Netflix, I'll be happy to hang out if I'm not outside working. :) If you enjoy your privacy, you will certainly have the space. Plenty of books to choose from if you like as well. Everyone I've hosted or stayed with as a guest has been absolutely fantastic. Loving meeting everyone through Airbnb!
Other things to note
This is an ACTIVE FARM with tractors and skid steers running around now and then. Chickens will occasionally be seen in the front yard. It is on a black top and gravel road and when dry out, its dusty and your car will not be immune.
There is a large flight of 14 stairs to the room plus a few coming into the house. Wood floor on the main level but light carpet everywhere else so shoes off going upstairs is appreciated. I have a decent reading collection so if you would like to read a book, you may. Please treat them with care. I have a mountain bike you are welcome to borrow to spin into lovely downtown Cedar Falls, along the scenic river trail to Waterloo or through any of the many trails all throughout the beautiful Cedar Valley and state parks.
I take pride in taking good care of the house and things so they will last a long time. Please be gentle and respectful with everything. Shoes off for up stairs on the white carpet. Absolutely no smoking in the house. No extra visitors without my consent. It probably won't be an issue, I just need to know beforehand. No illegal activity.

I am 36 years old and have been working at a Harley-Davidson dealership for 13 years. I own a farm with my family and have Arabian horses, chickens and turkeys. My brother and I bale and sell hay in the summer. I love to travel and love Bed & Breakfasts and meeting new people where I travel so I think this is a great program. I went to Australia last year and had a blast staying at Airbnbs. I have traveled around Central and South America, as well as Europe. I'm easy going and low key. I stay on the move and not around a lot but love to chat and get to know people over a pint. I keep busy between work, farming, Waterloo Lions Club, Iowa Irish Fest committee and my passion: scuba diving. :)
