We've got a wrap-around deck that faces the Wapsipinicon River in our tiny town, so come and "sit a spell!" We've also got a small swimming pool, so if the weather is right, come take a dip! We have poor internet for most providers here, so we'll happily share our Wifi with you! For your rig, we've got 30 amp and a whole-house water filtration system so that you can have clean, fresh water. Suggested Local Attractions: We live 20 minutes from Cedar Rapids and within 45 minutes of Amana Colonies, a large water park, a home built by Frank Lloyd Wright, a winery, an Amish colony, & the "Field of Dreams."

    Easy to find, pulled up and they got us parked right away. Carol makes you feel like you've known each other for years. Had water and electric, level concrete pad, had plenty of room for 35' motorhome with slides on both sides. Right on Wapsipinicon River, plenty of access to water. Great small bar 200ft away, fantastic food and specials, had live music. Definetly a diamond, would recommend and will plan on returning.

    Carol is a great host. She does everything to make you feel welcome. We had a nice conversation on her terrace. We field use the swimming pool. We got a self baked bread and lovely marmelades. I hope she will come to the Netherlands so that we can welcome her. Carol you are lovely 🥰 thanks 🙏🏻 many greetings with love and warm hugs Marjo and Hans from the Netherlands

    Our hosts were so kind and helpful. There was a weather warning so we were invited in to a safe place with them until it passed. Great visit and great people! Peaceful town! We would recommend this host if you are in the area!

    What a great place to stay! Beautiful spot on the river and short walk to dinner or store if you need. We loved the hospitality from Carol, Bob and their grandson, Walter. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

    Host provided excellent directions to the site because bridges/roads were closed. Greeted us when we arrived, allow us plug-in to the 30amp receptacle, showed us around the property, and encouraged us to make ourselves comfortable. Our discussions of travels confirmed why we are Harvest Hosts members.
