Our newly-constructed, comfortable home is set on four acres of picturesque Northeast Iowa property only a few minutes drive from downtown Waukon, and approximately 20 minutes from Decorah, Lansing, or Spring Grove.

Whether you plan on taking in all the area has to offer, or aspire to simply enjoy a quiet respite in the countryside, we are certain you will love it here.

The space
This multi-level, single-family home is conveniently located close to all Northeast Iowa has to offer. Savor a steaming cup of coffee on the deck in the morning as you take in the view and stargaze by night after chasing fireflies throughout the expansive yard. Observe deer and fox foraging near the entrance to the woods from the comfort of the upper level dining room, play a family board game, or put together a puzzle in the lower level dining area.
Our home is family friendly, offering a crib for families of infants or a toddler bed. (We can only accommodate one or the other at this time.) Guests should be aware they are obtaining the lower two levels of the home, with one flight of carpeted stairs to descend as they access the sleeping accommodations.
If you are keen to dine at the house during your stay, the fully equipped kitchen with new stainless appliances, including dishwasher is perfect for you. The private bedroom on the lower level has a very comfortable new luxury queen sized mattress, perfect for a restful night's sleep. The lower-level bathroom has a brand new walk-in shower fully stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and bodywash. The lower level shared family room has a queen bed should you have more than two guests staying in your party.
There are two family rooms, both equipped with TV, and we have provided several movies for you to enjoy should a cosy night in be of interest to you. An Apple TV is available to log into on the upper level floor.
We have lived and worked in this community since graduating from Luther College in 2000, and would love to share ideas for your family to enjoy the offerings of the area should you be interested. We built this property as our family dream home shortly before making a career move to serve as international teachers in the Middle East. It is a place of peace and escape from everyday stress, noise and commotion. Located in a safe neighborhood of newly constructed family homes owned by local professionals, this is our ‘home away from home,’ and we would like our guests to experience and use the house with the same delight and respect.

Where you’ll be

Waukon, Iowa, United States

Our home is a short drive to downtown Waukon. Waukon has a quaint downtown area where the shop owners will greet you with their friendly smile, and offer you countless unique treasures to remember your stay here. We have a fantastic city park that boasts several areas to picnic, walk, play frisbee golf, and expansive playground spaces for your little ones to blow off some steam. Our public pool is right next to the park should your visit be during the months of June-August and the Waukon Wellness Center is open year round with a wide variety of classes on offer, walking track, weights, and cardio equipment. (Fees apply for wellness center and city pool.)
As an avid foodie, I am happy to help you plan a mouth-watering tour of the area if you are looking for guidance. A must try is the award-winning WW Dairy where you can purchase delicious cheese curds, decadent ice cream, and specialty coffee. We have several established restaurants to choose from. With nostalgic breakfast locales, outstanding pizza, authentic mexican with delicious margaritas, fresh burgers and fries, and several fast food options, you will not go hungry in Waukon. We are 10 minutes from Empty Nest Winery where you can enjoy their offerings on location or take your favorite beverage home, and a short 20 minute drive from Toppling Goliath brewery which now hosts an outstanding menu to compliment your favorite craft brew.
Decorah is a brief drive from our home. Whether you are making a visit to Luther College, hiking near Dunning Springs, viewing the Decorah Eagles, taking on the Trout Run Trail, or interested in their countless shops, restaurants, and popular breweries, there is something for everyone here.
