This spacious newly remodeled five bedroom home sits at the end of a lane 3 miles south of downtown Guttenberg, IA. The mighty Mississippi is right outside of the house providing amazing views, opportunity for fun and a great place for families and friends to enjoy.
The home has two living rooms, each with a smart TV. There is no cable but you have access to various apps like Netflix, Hulu, etc. There is WiFi but due to the property location it isn't the fastest, please enjoy the amazing views out the large picture windows. The dining room and upstairs living room are an open floor plan providing a great space to gather while the lower living room is smaller and cozy. Enjoy your beverage of choice on our large deck or lower level patio with lots of seating. Bring some charcoal and use the grill! There is a large yard and outdoor space you can play your own yard games or kids can play.
UTV’s are allowed in Clayton County and in Guttenberg.
If you have a boat, the neighboring campground has a gravel boat ramp and two available places to dock. Please let me know if you are bringing a boat and I will get in touch with the campground owner, his prices are very reasonable. If you prefer a cement boat ramp, the marina in Guttenberg has one.
Please understand you are in the wilderness and next to a river. There will be bugs. We do spray for the common bugs but due to location we can't prevent them all. Shut exterior lights off at night, this will help keep bugs away. Of course, be sure to shut doors to prevent bugs from getting inside.
Our lower level stays very cool and is very well insulated. The upper level gets blasted by the hot sun all morning. We recommend to leave the door to the basement open to allow cold air to come up by, be sure vents are open upstairs, and be sure vents in basement are closed. We also provide a few fans to use if you would like.
Please note that railroad tracks run by the home. About one train and a few barges pass by at night. We have provided disposable earplugs for your convenience.
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, including all appliances, utensils, pots, dishes, etc. Washer and dryer too. Cleaning item such as dish soap and extra trash bags can be found under the kitchen sink.
All linens are provided. sheets, pillows, and towels. There are some "outdoor" towels provided for play at the river.
