The space
Bedroom 1: King Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Queen Beds | Rec Room: Sofa Bed + Air Mattress

Discover the diverse terrain of North Liberty while staying at this completely renovated mid-century modern home. The home is bright and sunny with plenty of windows that bring the outdoors in and offer views of the surrounding with beautiful sunsets. Enjoy limitless views of Sugarbottom State Park, Lake Coralville and the Iowa River from the furnished upper viewing deck. Gather friends and cook a BBQ meal on an Infrared gas grill while playing your favorite tunes over the whole home audio system. Enjoy your morning coffee or read a book while relaxing on the stylishly decorated daybed in the comfort of the screened-in porch.

Gather around the fire pit as you keep your eye out for local wildlife such as deer, turkeys, and bald eagles! Your pets would love running around in the large shaded backyard overlooking the river! Take a nap on the hammock listening to melodious bird sounds. Take a short walk down the semi-private access road to the rocky river bed directly from the property. You can fish along the river banks or take complimentary fishing kayaks (1 sit-on-top, 1 sit-in) across the river to the best fishing spot in the area!

During the winter months, warm up in the outdoor hot tub which can comfortably fit 6 adults while overlooking the frozen river and Sugar-bottom State Park! Once you are warm and relaxed, head inside to use the timeless brick wood-burning fireplace found in the second living space that also features a Roku smart TV. Kids will absolutely love playing arcade games (Pac-man and mortal Kombat) and various other board games in the rec room.

Upstairs in the living room, grab a seat on one of many seating options to catch up on the news on the smart TV or cook a delicious meal in the fully upgraded kitchen. The fully equipped kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a cozy breakfast bar with seating for 3 and all the utensils/cookware/glassware you will need. Share your meals at the 6-seat dining table or choose to dine al fresco on the deck.

Settle in for the night in one of the 2 spacious bedrooms each with an attached bathroom. The upstairs bedroom offers 1 king bed with adjustable bed frame and smart TV in the bedroom. The other room offers 2 queen beds. Don't forget to utilize the pullout sleeper sofa and air mattress for additional sleeping arrangements! The best part...each room in the house offers an incredible view of the outdoors!
Enjoy a great night's sleep in pillow-top mattresses that are so decadently comfortable that you will not want to leave. Crisp linens, luxe pillows and echo dots for music, alarm, and white noise await you. Plush Turkish cotton bath linens and toiletries are provided. Feel completely secured while you sleep or step away from the house with a security system and automated locks.

This is also a great place to stay while on work travel and for traveling nurses. You will enjoy laptop friendly areas including dedicated focus room, 100MBPS fiber optic internet service (wifi only), USB chargers, and an extra monitor to connect your laptop for multi-screen setup!

Where you’ll be

North Liberty, Iowa, United States

You're sure to enjoy the winding views of the Iowa River from this scenic property. When you want to be out on the water you can easily rent a watercraft from Coralville Lake Marina, 10 minutes from the home or Scales Pointe Marina, only a 15-minute drive from this home. If you have your own boat, the Mehaffey Boat Ramp is just 2 minutes from the property. Kayaks and stand-up paddle boards can also be rented at Lake McBride State Park just 15 minutes away!

Enjoy road biking on the recently built Mehaffey Bridge Road trail or shred dirt on miles of mountain biking trails at Sugar-bottom state park just 5 minutes from the property. During the winter months, this is an excellent trail for cross-country skiing or snowmobiling. Just across the river, Suggarbottom State Park and Lake McBride State park offer excellent snow-shoeing trails!

Satisfy the history buffs with a trip to the seven villages of the Amana Colonies located a 30-minute drive west of this property. Settled in the 1850s, these unique villages deliver historic mid-western charm paired with modern shops, cafes, and restaurants suitable for all ages. Visit the downtown Hancher Auditorium, University of Iowa, performance hall hosting Broadway musicals, contemporary dance & classical music.

Opt for a post-millennial urban landscape when you take a 20-minute drive into downtown Iowa City. Attend a Hawkeyes game or tour the University of Iowa campus before dining at a gourmet restaurant near the Old Capitol Town Center.

This is also an excellent place for working professionals, traveling nurses visiting Cedar Rapids businesses and hospitals.

There are excellent restaurants, breweries and wineries within 20 minutes of the property! Be sure to check out my recommendations in the guidebook!

I grew up in India and moved to Iowa in 2016. I got my degree in Architecture and love designing sustainable buildings at a local firm. I love to see the world and the people in it! So far, I've ventured to France, Holland, Greece, Thailand, UAE and I hope the list continues to grow every year. Of all my travels so far, Hawaii is the dearest since me and my travel-crazy husband got married there. What intrigues me most is the paradox in the vast diversity yet core similarity that we share as humankind-anywhere in the world. I like meeting people and getting to know them through their stories. I believe the real value in life is found in relationships and experiences-even those that only lasted one conversation long. I love life...and living to the fullest. Most people describe me as 'bubbly' and 'pleasant' and having 'a permanent smile'. I can't help it really. I love putting smiles on people's faces too and if that means going the extra mile ..its worth it! I look forward to connecting with you as a host or traveler. I will do my best to make your stay as comfortable as possible or being a good guest :)
