    Who would think of converting the upstairs of an old train station into two apartments? We did! Everyone is welcome to come explore & enjoy this beautifully done building. Natural woodwork along with some very unique decor lend a hand in preserving the style of the original space.
    This apartment is on the second floor of the building. TV in bedroom with Queen size bed, linens provided. Coffee maker, fridge, stove, microwave, pots, pans & all kitchenware are stocked. Towels in bathroom.
    We are a short walk/drive from Main Street which provides intriguing specialty shops, a wonderful coffee shop & on a Saturday or Wednesday a fun Farmer's Market.
  • Pleasant and very welcoming hosts! Unique apartment in a train depot. Furnishings, appliances and air conditioning were exceptional! Thanks for hosting us!

    Patty2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here for 3 months during the summer while on a clinical rotation at the local hospital. This place is gorgeous! Conveniently located in the heart of Charles City and very close to everything I needed - within a mile or two. It has very modern decor and was the perfect little place to call my short-term home. Very clean with many amenities included (dishes, cookware, towels, bedding, trash, etc.). Kim was available for questions whenever they came up and was always quick to respond. Thank you for a great summer!

    Jayme2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place away from home. Everything you need is provided, apartment is well taken care of. Updated, but still maintains the history of the building. I loved it.

    Single bed in the basement rec/guest room. I live alone and the whole house is available for you to use, this means we share the bathroom and kitchen. I love having a guest for a few days, but frequently turn down requests for longer stays over a week. However, after meeting someone I would consider a monthly rate.
    $25 a night does NOT INCLUDE 24-hr check-in or a 2nd guest. If the situation arises where you have an overnight guest, then there is an added fee of $75, per night, paid in advance. I need to meet someone first before committing to a long term stay as we basically would be living as roommates. Price on long-term stays might be negotiable after meeting in person. Over the last few years I've hosted bicycle riders traveling the area. We aren't far from the bike trail at Lanesboro, MN and close to some great hiking/biking in the Decorah, IA area as well as canoeing on the Upper Iowa River.
    Nice quiet neighborhood, very little traffic. Located one block from a 24 hour convenience store.
  • Great value, great hospitality!

    Eric2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay! Host was super friendly and helpful!

    Diana2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Quang Anh2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Duane is a good host and communicator. Everything was as stated in the posting and pictures. The area was clean. The work desk was large and had good lighting. The internet service was consistent and fast. The bed is firm-if you like a softer one, I would suggest bringing a sleeping pad. Good value and money going to a good cause makes this a good deal!

    June2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Duane was a fantastic! Very accomadating and a great value. Lots of worldly knowledge.

    Michael2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

  • The pictures don't do justice to the house, patio, porch, or parking. We loved the patio. It is on the lake with a wide view. Both the patio and porch have plenty of seating and dining options and you look directly onto the lake from both. You could easily fit four or five cars in the parking area. All three bedrooms had large, comfortable beds and there is plenty of good seating in the living room. Check out the games in the cupboard. We found everything we needed to cook a few meals. We recommend a trip to the apple orchard - great people.

  • This was a great house for my family of 4 & for my sister’s family of 5. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out & not be on top of one another. It was a very pleasant experience. Loved the charm of this older house!

  • We enjoyed Jerry’s space. It was clean and comfortable. Jerry was accommodating with check in and responsive with communications. He was helpful with additional pics and questions and took extra care to set up a card table for us to play cards. We were entertained by the neighborhood peacock. We enjoyed the town of crisp, too. Quaint and quiet. Really nice people! We would stay with them again next year when we are heading to Luther college XC meet.

    Samantha2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Extended stay discounts! 29 ft. Camper is set in view of our beautiful private pond. The camper is on our acreage, not far from our house. Our home and camper are set back from the road, and provides a very stress free area to relax and enjoy the view of our pond. Weekly and monthly discounts are available!
    There is a double bed in main bedroom 60"x76". The 2nd bedroom is four bunkhouse style bunk beds, great for children. 2 bunks are 28"x74", the other 2 are 38"x74". The kitchen/Living area has a couch/futon making a bed that is 39"x64" and table that fold down and becomes a bed 40"x69".
    We love the quiet, peaceful, secluded acreage. "A little piece of heaven" some have called it.
  • Always clean, relaxing, caring and fun! These folks have become friends and if what you're looking for is an out of the way escape that takes you away from the aggressive rat-race of city life, you will find this retreat to be golden! Nice, fully functioning camper, Wi-Fi, power, heat, air, and TV that you will probably never use, unless the weather doesn't favor the "always stocked" fire pit! Bryan is the S'more Master and Cheryl has all of the tips and info on anything and everything should you use them as a "jumping-off" point. Both are genuinely helpful, kind, and fun!

    Christopher2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience!

    Kelsey2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem! It was so much fun for our 6 year old to stay in a camper and sleep in a bunk bed and waking up to a view of the beautiful pond was so wonderful! The camper was clean and comfortable and the air conditioning worked great. The shower was nice and hot. Check-in and -out were simple and Brian and Cheryl and their co-host Dave were so welcoming. The fire and s'mores were a great bonus. We will definitely return the first chance we get!

    Shara2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Brian and Cheryl are absolutely lovely! They are very serious about the s’mores by the fire, and really welcoming their guests. I was in town for work but this place felt like a vacation. The camper is set up in an ideal spot and feels like your own are to relax by the lake, but they are always right there to help. I hope I will get a chance to visit again!

    Rayanne2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a wonderful stay! VERY accommodating hosts, lovely property, sweet pets and great conversation. The fire-pit is the communal hot-spot and the S'mores are top notch! The waterfall created by Bryan and Cheryl adds such a peaceful ambiance and the starlit nights, make you want to gaze well beyond bedtime. Cheryl is a sunset buff who has taken many fantastic photos and has converted many to canvas. Their pond is a lovely focal point and you may see deer, Blue Heron, and bald eagles during your visit. If you enjoy the company of people who have a real zest for life, this will be an absolute treat for you! Please be responsible at this property, to ensure they retain their desire to share with the AIRBnB community!

    Christopher2018-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, quiet and charming property. Brian and Cheryl are welcoming and inviting, super helpful and all around good people. We had a very nice stay!

    Joan2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Brian and Cheryl’s camper was perfect for our family’s weekend. They thought of every little detail and made us feel totally at home. They even were super accommodating when additional family members came to enjoy the campfire for a few hours. Stay here if you want super air bnb hosts and a relaxing setting.

    Steve2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl and Brian were awesome! They went above and beyond to accommodate our family, including our dog. They made our stay very enjoyable and made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend it as a hotel alternative

    Elizabeth2018-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This old church is wonderful, and Sarah's hospitality matched the largesse of the space. If you are looking for a peaceful get away in the heartland this is the spot for it! The wind is the burr oaks was music to our ears and the fresh eggs Sarah provided us the best omelette we have made in years.

    Catherine2018-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • From the initial booking until check out this was a first rate place. Sarah was accommodating and quick to respond. Beautiful spacious place. The kitchen was well appointed down to coffee and filters. If you are looking to get away from it all, look no further. Dark and quiet at night as you would expect in the (almost) middle of nowhere. Not even a barking dog could be heard, just the rustling trees and a few buzzing insects.

    Donald2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • My 11yr old daughter and I stayed here for two nights while attending a family wedding reception nearby. Perfect place for us. A loft for her, fireflies at night, lightning off in the distance. Perfect.

    Phil2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Expect a quiet environment for total relaxation. Clean, well stocked, and charming.

    Richard2018-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! If you are going to be in Osage and in need of a place to stay, you should definitely check it out. Very spacious, incredibly comfortable, and as peaceful as it gets. Sarah is a great host, and made everything very easy!

    Matthew2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second year visiting the church and already looking forward to the next time. Sarah and her mom, Jane, were very hospitable and accommodating to ensure our family had the perfect weekend. It is a great place to leave stress back home and just relax with the family, playing games, hiking, and exploring the town and different parks. We even lucked out that a meteor shower took place, and that is the perfect place with it's black skies, full of stars. There is no light pollution there, providing amazing night skies, especially when enjoying s'mores over a camp fire.

    Greg2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • I recently took a short trip back home and found this stay to be a very cozy, pleasant, and unique one. The hosts were fantastic and the church and grounds are very beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in the area!

    Dale2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great long weekend. My wife and I stayed here with another couple for 3 nights. The goal was to get a way without having to travel far and this was perfect. Very laid back country feel with nice outdoor areas and fire pit. Cabin was very nice. Golfing not far away in Riceville or Osage. Charcoal grill and wrap around porch was awesome. Remember to bring bottled water as it is very hard well water. Also, the only bathroom is off the Kitchen area, we were with close friends so it was not a big deal to us. I highly recommend this place.

  • Loved staying here for our trip to northeast Iowa. A much better alternative to the hotels in and around the area especially overpriced Decorah Iowa. Would stay again without hesitation.

    Scott2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We were in town for a family reunion. It was so nice you come back to a nice house, rather than one of the area hotels. They have a great house!

    Tony2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This home is lovely and we enjoyed our stay here immensely.

    Jennifer2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place worked great for our family.

    Sharla2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • The home was very "homey ", it was a little bit difficult to have young children (toddlers) in the home as there are a lot of "breaks led" throughout the home and a lot of stairs. But there is a quaint little park within easy walking distance to make it more child friendly. We had plenty of space for 5 adults and 2 babies to stay comfortably.

    Rebekah2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy house - makes you feel like you are part of the family!

    Jess2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We came to town to visit family and for the tractor pull. The hotels were booked in town, but we were happy to find Patty's place available. We were able to stay close to the events in New Hampton and not have to travel with the young kids after late nights at the pull.
