BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY BARN HOUSE...WHERE HEAVEN AND EARTH MEET.

Dubuque Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country Home, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths,(Sleeps 2-25)

The Barn House is a unique and beautiful home that was once truly a barn. In 2001 it was transformed to become something quite magical, and it is now a treasured country experience made available to you. Whether you are a group of two or many...family, group of friends, business group, retreats..the Barn House provides an opportunity for an experience instead of merely an event. The beauty of country will surround you inside and out, with views that hold their own magic with each season, and the interior of the barn with it's wood, stone and stained glass, will leave you in awe as you explore all it offers.

When you rent the Barn House, it is fully furnished with all you probably will need, and if something additional is needed, we will do our best in the tradition of country hospitality, to accommodate you...and to make your stay a treasured memory.

Whether you plan to visit the many attractions in the area...the wineries, the Field of Dreams, the Riverboat Museum, Galena, ski at Sundown, or you plan to just enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of the country, the Barn House will meet your needs.

It isn't possible in words or pictures to fully capture the beauty of the Barn House and the country surroundings -- you must experience it yourself. You will then know why...heaven and earth do meet at the Barn House.

Keywords: The Barn House is a full home rental, where you have the entire home to share with your family/group to make your time together an unforgettable experience.

A Family Reunion Spot that is "hard to top!"

A Family Reunion Spot that is "hard to top!"
  • 5 of 5
Fifteen people ( 8 adults and 7 children) recently gathered at The Barn House for a wonderful family reunion. When we were checking out, everyone said, "This place will be hard to top!" (We take turns selecting a place to stay for our reunions.) Truer words were never spoken! When we arrived the house was immaculate, awe-inspiring, and so very spacious! Gerarda and Tony really have a gem here! And they were wonderful to us! They gave us an amazing place to create beautiful memories! The Barn House can never be truly understood through the pics on this site! Let me tell you a few surprises for us. There are 3 levels and an elevator that my 75 year old mother-in-law greatly appreciated. The whole place is beautifully decorated and they include everything you could possibly want…shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, cooking oil, syran wrap, the list goes on and on! We immensely enjoyed preparing several family meals using their professional stove, refrigerator, gas grill and prep area. There were two huge dining room tables inside, as well as, three patio tables on the upper deck and screened-in porch. The fire pit on site was a gathering place each evening for smores and family stories. The huge area on the first floor allowed us to all lounge comfortably as we watched family videos. Tony and Gerarda live next door and respected our privacy throughout our stay. We loved chatting with both of them when they brought over a mounding platter of home baked chocolate oatmeal cookies! My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the loft area since it was our 23 wedding anniversary. What an incredibly gorgeous bedroom. The stunning stained-glass windows, comfy leather reading chairs and private bath and jacuzzi tub made us feel so very pampered! We loved using the nearby walking/bike trail and even spent part of a morning wading in the ankle-deep water. We were close to "The Field of Dreams, Dubuque, and Galena, and were able to explore these places with only a short drive. My husband's aunt said, "I"ve stayed at 7 different VRBO homes all over the country and this one by far has been the best!" She sums up our family's thoughts exactly…The Barn House is simply the best place to stay!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Barn House for a girls weekend. 7 women all together. There was plenty of space to relax and visit. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals together and out on the extensive deck chatting and catching up. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

Memorial Day Family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about "The Barn". Everyone in our party was elated about the facilities and the hospitality that was offered by Gerarda & Tony. There is everything in the kitchen that you could ever want. We had thirteen in our group and never ran out of space or felt like someone was in our space (it even rained two of the four days that we were there). The outside is just as awesome as the inside. The lower floor with the bar area, and the game area and then walk outside to the covered patio was great. The well kept lawn made you relax just to sit and enjoy the scenery. It was so nice to have all the bathrooms. The saying of "Earth Meets Heaven" fits this to a tee. We would definitely recommend this to others and will rent it again.

Week-End Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Barn very much. The kitchen with its commercial stove and fridge made our meals easy to fix and it is stocked with every utensil you may need for cooking, baking, etc. We loved the views and enjoyed watching deer graze near by with two pair binoculars provided. The kitchen and dining and living room are beautiful with space to spare for dining and gathering for games and fun. It also had a huge family room with big screen tv and sectional down stairs We had plenty of room. We enjoyed the skeeball, bean bag toss and karaoke. Tony and Gerarda were most helpful and Gerarda made special cookies to surprise us and they were delicious and appreciated by all the grandkids. You would enjoy your stay at the barn. The only thing that I think would add to the fun their would be a ping pong table or pool table for even more family fun.
Sincerely, The Hilmer's

Neat property about 20 minutes from Dubuque

  • 4 of 5
The Barn House is a pretty neat property. It has several beds/baths to accomodate a large group. We had some kids in our group and they had plenty of room to run outside. The owners even provided baby gates for the stairs! The outdoor space is great, with plenty of tables and chairs, a grill, games/toys, etc. The kids enjoyed feeding carrots to the horses outside and playing on the swingset.
I would liken this property to a bed and breakfast more than a hotel or resort. The owner is at the house often, to the point that you feel you are staying WITH her. It is not uncommon for the owner to walk right in the house unexpectedly while you are sitting there eating breakfast. There is no privacy. The one other problem we had was one of the downstairs bathrooms was completely missed by the cleaners... hair all over the tub surround and a dirty toilet. I am guessing this was just an error to miss this room, as the rest of the place was very clean. The kitchen has every gadget and cooking utensil known to man so you really do not need to bring anything for cooking except food. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room over three floors to spread out. Overall it was a neat place to stay for our annual family gathering.

Owner's Response: The Barn House is not a bed and breakfast as you rent the entire home, and yet it is more like a guest house than a basic rental home as we also live on the property and personally oversee the Barn House. As you can tell by the pictures and the description, this is a unique home and we provide many amenities to our guests -- we also greet you when you come, show you through the home and do what we can to make your stay a special one. Included with that would be respect for your privacy. It is our common practice to knock and wait for acknowledgement to enter the home if we come to bring in something you need or requested, or stop in to see if you might need anything especially if you are here for a longer stay. But with great respect for the wonderful family who wrote this review, those who thought I came in unannounced may not have seen that someone signaled me to come in after seeing or hearing me at the door or what I interpreted as a signal to come in. I appreciate the feedback on their concerns and will use them for improvement, and I am grateful that, overall, they found the Barn House to be a pretty neat property as we found them to be pretty neat family, and were honored to share our home with them.

great place for biking holiday

  • 5 of 5
The Barn House is truly as beautiful and comfortable as it looks on this website and the owners are very helpful and accommodating. We were there for a weekend as part of a group of 12 friends, and we rode our bikes both Saturday and Sunday on the Dubuque Heritage Nature Trail, which is especially scenic between Epworth and Durango. The Epworth trailhead for this biking/walking trail is just two or three miles down Gun Club Road from the Barn House. The Park Farm Winery is also just two or three miles in the opposite direction, a wonderful place for an aperitif, with views over the rolling countryside that are beautiful--but no more beautiful than the views from the Barn House itself!

The Barn House is located west of Dubuque(approx 20 miles) and is close to a multitude of activities and attractions with Park Farm Winery, Heritage Trail and Sundown Ski Resort only a few miles away. You will not want for things to do, and you may find your favorite thing of all is to just sit and enjoy the people you are with...and the serenity of beautiful country that surrounds you.
