About this listing

Come stay in the heart of Ames. You can't beat the location of this historic four bedroom home -- within one block walking distance of Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!), Jack Trice Stadium (football), Hilton Coliseum (basketball), Fisher Theater, and CY Stephens Auditorium.

Ease of access to many conveniences but still has the outdoor feel to it because of the creek and green space surrounding it.

The space

Drop your bags and your worries behind as you check-in to this four bedroom, well maintained historic home (2,000 sq ft - built in 1900!) with plenty of beds - one king/two queens/two twins, two bathrooms, a living room with TV, kitchen, dining area that seats 12 people, office area, and central heat/air with Nest thermostat. Newly renovated kitchen complete with stove, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, dishes, cooking utensils, and coffee maker.

Enjoy the cozy front porch in our quaint neighborhood. Off-street parking for multiple cars. Here, you can blend right into the neighborhood and feel like a local.

Large fenced backyard to enjoy with the family. Overlooking huge trees, the landscaped yard with creek, we offer the experience of having the city at the front door and the country at back.

If you're in the mood for a walk or biking, the bike path starts right around the corner and connects you to some of Ames's most vibrant neighborhoods. The trail runs north and south through Ames to four city parks.

Guest access

We use a keyless lock and will send you a door code for easy "check-in" and "check-out". You will have access to the entire main house, come and go as you please without worrying about disturbing anyone. Off street parking.

Interaction with guests

We will be staying in the basement (separate entrance door) and are available if you need anything. We respect the privacy of our guests so we are here if you need us, but may not see you at all if our schedules are busy.

We have two young kids. You may, on occasion, see them greet you. Feel free to say hello!

This is a wonderful place to stay with kids. My brother and I stayed here with our four young kids, and they had a blast in the backyard and toy room. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was easy to use. It's also a very convenient location in Ames. They made check out very easy by saying we could leave the breakfast dishes in the sink.

This comfortable home was ideal for 4 couples to have a reunion. We were able to visit and cook together while being close to the ISU campus and a variety of activities. We would definitely stay here again!
