Sheila purchased this House in 2005
Why Sheila chose Douglas
This property is for those who want to reconnect with family and friends and nature. It is for those who want to experience life in a rural farming community where you can hear the sheep baaahing in the evening, the coyotes yelping at dusk, the eagles and hawks soaring in the day, and millions of stars at night. Renew your spirit. It's time for some innspiration.
What makes this House unique
Be inspired in this relaxing country setting. Ideal for family reunions and retreats. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Five miles of trails connect the vineyards, river access points, and scenic spots on our 370 acre farm.

Very spacious home for our family of 10.

The home comes stocked with all that you need.
The backyard , deck and pond look beautiful. We will definitely plan to come back with warmer weather and will try the good wine !.
Loved all the space. Perfect for family reunion.
A hidden GEM in peaceful middle America...IOWA
What a wonderful country setting to enjoy sharing memories at our annual sibling get together. Open concept kitchen. dinning and gathering area is stocked to aide in preparing family meals. Owners have prepared the 5 bedroom 5 1/2 bath home for comfort. Exceptionally clean. This is our second time here. Spencer is a nice town, to the north, to shop and visit. The home of the famous Clay County Fair (starts weekend after Labor Day). Thanks to Sheila and Paul.
Great vacation stay. We all enjoyed the house.
Everyone had a great time. What a wonderful facility! Very comfortable and welcoming. WE all enjoyed our time here -- we were 8 adults and 17 grandchildren ranging from 6 to 13 years of age. I have just a few comments or suggestions -- we were unable to locate a grill brush and grill utensils. Maybe we just did not look in the right place, but they would have been helpful. The only other item was Kleenex tissues -- it would have been helpful to know beforehand if they are not provided. Otherwise, everything else was wonderful. Thank you.
We had a wonderful family gathering! The house easily accomodated all the adults and the teenagers
Our family of 14 spent hours swimming, fishing and kayaking. We even kayaked the Little Sioux. The house was spacious enough for everyone to have a little "hideaway". Lori was marvelous and we had such a delightful time sampling the wine with her. Our plans are to return.
Perfect for our group. Inside and out were comfortable, safe for the older and younger ones!
This place had everything we needed for a family vacation. The house is huge and comfortable. Lots of space to play or do things inside if it's a rainy day. Outside has a lovely large mowed lawn for plenty of yard games. The pond was a great place to swim and boat. And of course the winery was a great thing to have a short walk away.
The clear water pond is great for swimming and fishing. Vineyards are an integrel part of the landscape. The winery is less than a block away. Our 370 acre timber farm with trails, vineyards, and the Little Sioux River running through it, starts just across the road. If you enjoy an outdoor rural setting this vacation rental is for you. Innspiration Winery is located on the other side of the pond. Taste the wines. Enjoy a bottle while lounging on the deck. Schedule a winery and vineyard tour. Try your hand at karaoke. Listen to live music on Friday nights during the Summer and Fall. Hunting pakages available for deer, turkey, and pheasant(call for info). The 370 arce farm adjacent to the vacation rental has 200 acres of timber, 70 acres of wetlands and CRP, and 100 acres of cropland. This farm supports good populations of whitetail deer and turkey. Guide service is available. Out of state hunters must enter the lottery to obtain a liciense for deer and turkey. We are the perfect spot for cross country skiers. There are trails throughout our woods or down to the Little Sioux River. Call for snow conditions. We see many eagles below the dam in Linn Grove during the winter, and there is an eagles nest about a mile south of the vacation rental so you can see eagles as often as you want. The Little Sioux River offers opportunities for fishing, floating, canoeing, kayaking, or snowmobiling. We have a private access 1 1/2 mile South of the vacation rental or there are public access areas all along the river. Google 'inkapaduta canoe trail' or check out the 'linngroveiowa.org' website.
