    Latoya2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with a lot of space. The place was clean and very welcoming with some nice decorative touches. It was close to the Drake campus and there was some college traffic late at night, but overall not too bad noise-wise. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. I had no problems during my stay, and would definitely stay here again. Great value and a very nice place to stay.

    Open floor plan ground level historic barn turned into an airbnb. Cabin style with modern comforts. Fast unlimited wifi, Iowa State 10 mins away, with a splash of Iowa rural. Couch cot to sleep extra 2. Super chill atmosphere on 3 acres. Unique airbnb with hotel accommodations like air conditioning, heat, clean sheets, towels and coffee/tea. The barn is self check-in (late arrival friendly) and check out. We have 3 hens free roaming the property eating bugs and taking naps. Gay Friendly!
    The barn has been completely gutted and remodeled featuring modern but rustic charm. There are very few Iowa barns left and this one is beautiful. We provide clean towels, empty trash cans, basic toiletries and bedding for every guest. The barn is however very old which means bugs and reclaimed wood. Some people bring slippers or flip flops because the floor is concret (with rugs).
    This barn is located in Ames right past the last neighborhood down a long gravel road. No city lights and lots of trees and farm fields. We do have neighbors to the south and north but we are 3 acres in between with lots of trees.
  • Lovingly restored barn with all the fun you would expect. It was a cozy place with perfect little extras. The piano was fun and so was the shower! It was an experience to mark off our bucket list. We loved sleeping in the vintage camper, cozy and cute.

    Drew2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an artistically rustic and authentic experience, you have found it. While the space may not be for everyone, we absolutely loved it. While you feel like you are miles from Ames, reality is you are just a short drive away...10 min or less. Unique experience!

    Amy2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • I couldnt have asked for better Host's. They were quick to respond to my questions and gave some great recomendations! I was worried about getting rides to and from Kissing Hen's but i was able to use both Lyft and Uber during my stay. We will be back!

    Brad2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • The barn is full of amazing character!! It’s such a neat place!!

    Abby2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Lots of color and fun decor. Short drive to Drake and DMU: One full bed, one single day bed, private bathroom, wifi, smart TV with Netflix, and Hulu, cozy electric fireplace, exclusive access to laundry room and screened porch, compact fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker and wine on request, quirky charm, your own entrance. Following all cleaning protocols to help us both stay safe!
    Welcome to Suite Chez Jennie! :) Lots of color and fun decor. My house was built in 1927, on land owned by a single woman: rare back then! Only five owners since then. Beaverdale was considered a Des Moines suburb when the neighborhood was built up, and was notable for the 2 story and story and a half brick Tudor-inspired houses.
    Beaverdale was at one point a far northwest suburb of Des Moines, and is known for the 1 and 1/2 and two story brick homes known locally as "Beaverdale bricks."
  • This place was Excellent for our needs. Our host had everything we needed. She had our back there. Place was very clean. This was our second time there. Thanks again.

    Ronald2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jennie’s place was very clean and perfect for a weekend trip in Des Moines!

    Delaney2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jennie’s place was a lovely stay! Very clean and just what we needed. Loved the homey, Des Moines touches.

    Madeline2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Maria2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and comfortable!

    Livia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We didn’t actually stay at Jennie’s place as we got caught in a snow storm in northern Iowa and couldn’t make it that evening. However, my limited experience with Jennie was wonderful. She was quick to respond to communication and was more than fair with us regarding the booking. She was very kind and understanding about the situation. Even though i didn’t stay here, I would recommend booking with Jennie.

    Jenny2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We were in town from Brooklyn to canvas for our main man, Bernard Sanders, and needed a place to sleep. Jennie's en suite was an ideal place for our visit. It was a quick trip to where we needed to be. The bed was super comfortable, ideal for catching up on rest after eight-hour long canvassing shifts where we walked upward of eight miles! Jennie also had a really well-stocked bathroom: toothpaste, aleve, allergy medicine, etc (in my experience, many hosts overlook these little details). The space was also very clean, and my partner, who is allergic to cats, didn't suffer any symptoms while there. Finally, Jennie was really friendly and responsive, and her three cats were so cute! In all, a great place to spend a couple of days.

    Landry2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jennie is a great hostess. Communication was top notch, place was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Convenient location, centrally located and easy to get anywhere in the metro.

  • Great place to stay

    Kelli2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Do not pass by this place if you are into mid-century modern style. This 1-bedroom place is perfect for a couple looking to enjoy a weekend in Des Moines, IA AND step back in time. The location is also great. We took Uber rides to Waukee and the Ingersol area, which were reasonable, and we enjoyed the Waveland Cafe. Jeff and Ingrid's place was one of the best Air BnB's we've stayed at. Thank you!

    Jeremy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is PERFECT for the Baby Boomer!! You feel like you’ve walked back into your childhood home!! Everything is EXACTLY as it says & appears!! If you enjoy a medium firm bed, your going to have one of your best nights sleep! The down comforter is so cozy on the bed!! We have already asked to rebook for a future trip. As a person who has an eye for cleanliness, IMPECCABLE!! Jeff & Ingrid are EXCELLENT HOSTS. Communication was top notch! Driveway & sidewalks were shoveled & salted! CAREFUL going in& out of driveway, very steep!! Easy to see that Jeff & Ingrid truly care about their property & want their guests to have a wonderful experience!!

    Stacy Lynn2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a lovely, stylish small bungalow where we felt totally at home -- sat around in the evenings after busy days in the great living room, made breakfast every morning, did laundry. Many cute little design touches. Great and instant communications about how to get in and the rest. It's in a very quiet residential neighbourhood -- across from a school and a church -- where the nearest coffee shops are at least a 15-minute walk, so be aware of that. But super-quick (10 minutes) to drive to the centre of town or to the great restaurants on Ingersoll or the fun ones on Forest near Drake University.

    Frances2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful! Exactly how described. Fantastic thought-through checking and checkout process that takes a minute. I’d stay here again anytime.

    Julius2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Ingrid's place was great! It was cozy and very stylish. A great place to stay if you're going to Des Moines. The check out time was a little early but they seemed flexible about it and we were able to extend it a bit. Do be aware that the sofa bed is a futon and not a pullout mattress. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay!

    Marc2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Ingrid’s place was exactly as advertised. We enjoyed our stay and everything was minutes away when we ventured out into the local area. Would recommend to a friend instantly.

    Nicholas2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay. The place was very unique and comfortable. I would highly recommend this Airbnb! I would stay again next time I'm in Des Moines if it's available

    Drive into the attached garage where you will find your very private entrance to a quiet, peaceful, and restful living. Located 1 mile from the downtown area on a street loaded with large Oak and Walnut trees. A huge back yard in which to stroll or barbecue.
    You are welcome to play Croquet, use the hammock, pick flowers in the garden, or use any of the yard furniture to just relax. I have updated the apartment with a private deck that over looks the backyards of the south side. You may also use the fire pit located way in the back. Please let me know if you want to do this and I will set it up for you
    This area of town has been called "Little Italy' for decades. My neighbors have told me that boot legging went on in this area during Prohibition. The police would drive into the area looking for bootleggers and the bootleggers would escape by using the alleys that were here.
  • Great host. Great stay. Very nice.

    Daniel2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Greg has a nice setup. He greeted me when I arrived. I didn't get a chance to enjoy place as much as I would have liked. It was a quick overnight. But it's in a good location, the deck would be great to enjoy during the day. It's homey.

    David2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent option when staying in Des Moines. Just south of downtown and budget friendly. This is our 2nd time staying here. Fresh flowers in the rental, you get to park in the garage, dog friendly, quiet neighborhood, and great water pressure! We’ll likely book again when we come to town.

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodations are spectacular! Garage parking indeed a plus. Bed was super comfy. Great stay - especially if you are needing for more than a day or two with all kitchen and bath supplies provided. Greg is definitely a super host and highly recommend his property. I booked Greg’s property for my sister-in-law, who relocated to DSM for a new job. The 2 weeks in Little Italy allowed time for her to be near her work & secure long- term housing.

    Gaylene2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Greg was very nice and helpful. He hosted my 4 dogs plus my small human family. He had food recommendations and also helped us find a hiking trail. The place was very clean and tidy. Check in time was very flexible.

    Kylie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Charity2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Greg and his place were fantastic! Speedy with communication before and after booking, friendly and hospitable when we arrived with tips for dining and maps handy. Garage parking with direct access was nice to have. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch, and the apartment had everything needed for us to be comfortable. Slept very well on the king size bed. The outdoor space was nice and will surely be amazing in the summer. We will DEFINITELY be booking Greg’s Little Italy Apartment again!

The apartment has been completely furnished to meet all your needs, whether you're searching for a quick overnight stop or for a cozy weekend getaway.
    The apartment space is built into the eaves of a beautiful historical Drake home. The house in its entirety has been renovated to function as a multi-unit home, with five long-term tenants occupying the lower floors of the house.

    Tucked in Beaverdale just 10 minutes from the airport, downtown and attractions. Enjoy your own master bedroom with queen size bed, private bath in room, sun room and kitchen. I do live in the dwelling, so it is SHARED with me & my boyfriend Joe.

It's fun, cozy and relaxing.

    Due to COVID we have stopped autobooking at this building. Please send an inquiry as we have other potentially options depending on the health situation at the time. Hi! Welcome fellow vacationer couples, business travelers, staycationers, monkeys who have learned to use the internet, and alien researchers who have discovered the Earth Internet! I'm biased, but I think the place is great.
    You will be less than a 5 minute walk from -Hy-Vee (Grocery store) -Fong's Pizza (late night pizza place) -Several Bars -Walgreens Inside of the condo building there's a sushi place and a diner. If you don't want to go out in the cold to get food, you do not have to. Sweet! Furthermore, you can use my Netflix account! The TV has a roku attached to it and it's awesome. The kitchen is fully stocked with silverware and appliances. Salt, pepper, and some random ingredients are available for your stay. PARKING IS PROVIDED WITH THIS UNIT! We can arrange a parking spot at an adjacent garage. Full disclosure - access to this lot adds a couple of steps to check-in. You are going to need to find street parking or park at the local Hy-Vee first to gain access to the unit and get the garage opener. Some people are annoyed by these extra steps but hey - it’s free parking :)
    It's pretty much the best area in Des Moines. The building is connected to the skywalk, a series of indoor hallways that link a bunch of downtown buildings. The neighborhood is pretty quiet, but this condo is practically above 2 bars. It is a great location to retire after a night out in downtown.
  • Jennifer was nice and very helpful. Very clean and beautiful place!

    Lisa2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    We are close to downtown. Easy access to the freeway. Little sweets in a homey apartment living space. Remodeled Recently.. We can't wait to see you..
    The neighborhood is in a Historic district, made up of Victorian style houses (painted ladies) and ornate brick apartment buildings. Urban revitalization started in the area in the late 80's and continues today with very few opportunities left for restorable homes. Homes in the area seldom come up for sale and sell for a premium.
  • Clean and secure. Would absolutely stay again!

    Kyle2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Quick response from host, clean place, no issues.

    Silje2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Due to COVID we have stopped autobooking at this building. Please send an inquiry as we have other potentially other options depending on the health situation at the time. This bright space is your ideal launching pad into all that downtown Des Moines has to offer! You're just a few minute walk from bars, restaurants, grocery shopping, and local services!
    This space provides you with ample room to move around, a large couch, and a fantastic location. I'm big on sleeping comfort and the memory foam mattress will provide you with an amazing sleep. If you are traveling with more than 2 people, an air mattress can be provided with linens. This isn't some terrible air mattress that will sink to the floor in an hour - it's one of the fancier ones that consistently keeps itself filled all night. It's pretty darn good. PARKING INCLUDED WITH THIS UNIT. We can arrange parking in an adjacent garage. Please message me before check in so that we can insure you have a parking spot! If you are bringing multiple cars I recommend skywalk parking garage, which is close to the unit. They do charge for parking. Note about parking - it takes several steps to gain garage access. The first step involves finding street parking so that you gain access to the unit and get the garage opener. Some people find these extra steps frustrating but hey look at it this way - parking is free for you in an area where parking is normally a nightmare. Note- we replaced the couch because the old one was broken. Photos are only slightly inaccurate because there’s a different couch in there now. Also this is on the 4th floor. You will hear street noise. Most guests are fine with it but i want you to be fully aware before booking.
    This neighborhood is one of the most densely packed in Des Moines when it comes to bars and restaurants. We are across the street from Fong's Pizza, which is famous for late night eats. One of the other big draws of this location is proximity to the Hy-Vee grocery store. It's super duper close. This is very helpful if you're the type who likes to cook or get fresh produce while on vacation.
  • Exactly what you see in the photos. Great location- perfect for downtown work traveling.

    Michelle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Andy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had another amazing stay in Des Moines. It is nice to stay at a place that has everything we need and not have to worry about bringing stuff with us on our trip. Jennifer is always a text away and has been amazing to work with. Thank you Jennifer for always making our stay in Des Moines amazing !!

    Ruby2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    This unit provides a bright, colorful, artsy decor to accompany all the cozy amenities! Including coffee and 4 different creamers, so you can really have an adventure!

You may be surprised by which ones! we even provide a chalk board so you can leave us some artwork of your own!
    The most important note I can share about our property is that we do our best to make the unit as safe and secure as possible. So that you can stay with us at ease! This does however mean that the check in instructions have a few extra steps and can be complex. We ask that you not hold that against us, as it is designed with your safety in mind! We DO include ONE PARKING SPOT. If you need to use our adjacent garage, please let us know ahead of time. If you are bringing multiple cars I recommend skywalk parking garage, which is close to the unit. They do charge for parking. Parking around Downtown Des Moines can be quite a hassle without a parking spot, so with that in mind. We hope you are understanding that in order to provide parking. There are some additional steps that include parking at the hyvee a block down. In order to obtain the garage key. Againg we appreciate your understanding that, in order to provide you this luxury and safety. It will mean a few additional check in steps You can use the gym in the lower level of the building. You can use the roku tv and my Netflix account if you do not have one IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THE LISTING - the two bedrooms are as follows 1. The master bedroom is separated by a door from the rest of the place and has a king bed. 2. The secondary bedroom is set up in the large loft area that also shares space with the dining room and the kitchen. Photos show this pretty well. There is a sofabed in this area. 3. The space can accommodate 6 adults Maximum - two on the king bed, two on the sofa bed, and two on an air mattress. 6 people is a TIGHT SQUEEZE, but can be fit. The most efficient configuration is 4 people total. This is a heads up. If you need the air mattress, please inform us when you book. It is available on request.
    This unit is within walking distance to The Hy-Vee grocery store. You can walk to plenty of places, including the convention center, downtown Marriott, Wells Fargo Center, and the Farmers Market. Stuff within one block- Fong’s Pizza (this is really great for late night eats). The Skywalk. bars (the royal mile, the lift, etc) Java Joes coffee shop. Wasabi Tao sushi restaurant.
  • Beautiful and organized place in a good location. Very comfy bed and furniture. Had some issues with the internet the first night which the host said was due to maintenance issues on the providers end. Worked well after that.

    Christine2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The is a very clean and well appointed unit. It's very spacious. Quiet. Great location. Bed, bedding and pillows are comfortable and I'm very particular about pillows. Would be my first choice next time in this area.

    Jason2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Lots of local amenities around the building. I hope I have to come to Des Moines again so I can stay here!

    Matt2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was exactly as the pictures show. Very sunny and beautiful. We chose this location because it was connected to the skywalk and we did not know what weather to expect in the winter. Even though it wasn't snowing outside, it was great to not have to go outside if we didn't need to. There is a really nice Hy-Vee right around the corner and several great restaurants. The neighbors are really quite and the whole building is actually really quiet. Being able to use the garage and not have to pay for parking was an added bonus. As the listing states, we definitely recommend taking a car instead of a big SUV as the garage can be a little tight. We had a great stay and will definitely be booking again!!

    Christina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don't do the place justice. It was the middle of winter and when I opened the door in the late afternoon, the main room was full of sunlight! With two bathrooms and a kitchen in the middle, this is a great space for multiple people. Great location and easy to check in and check out.

    Tim2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location right in the heart of downtown Des Moines! Lots of stuff to do without having to drive anywhere so it was nice that a parking spot was included.

    Matt2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious. Clean. And was given very detailed instructions with parking and getting into the building.

    Paige2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

    Our house is right off I-235 just minutes from downtown, great restaurants, family-friendly activities, and nightlife. You’ll love our place because of the adorable kitchen, unique dining room, cozy feel, and vintage detail. It's located in a very friendly neighborhood with Callanan playground and running track right across the street. The house is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families with kids, big groups, and four legged friends. There is a $50 fee per dog.
    You will love the unique details our home has to offer. Touches of reclaimed wood accent many of the walls. The historic wooden doors make each room more cozy. The dining room has a custom shiny tin ceiling with beautiful light fixtures illuminating a stunning solid wood dining table that seats eight people; perfect for dinner parties. An exposed brick chimney is seen in the kitchen as well as the third bedroom for a modern twist on a rustic feel. There is a spacious front porch which is a great place to spend the afternoons on the gorgeous days Iowa brings. The living room is extremely comfortable with plush sofas and a reading nook.
    Our house is walking distance to the Ingersoll Avenue district which is rich with historic character, independent businesses, a vibrant dining scene and family-oriented offerings. There are bikes available for rent right on Ingersoll and MLK (just a few blocks from the house) which, in our opinion, is the best way to tour Des Moines! Most downtown streets have a designated bike lane and you can return the bikes to any of the rental locations around the Downtown Des Moines Area. Head a bit further South and you will find the Des Moines Art Center. This is a wonderful place to see some incredible works of art and have a great lunch with impeccable scenery. Right behind the Des Moines Art Center is both Greenwood and Ashworth Parks. An area perfect for enjoying the great outdoors as well as an access point to one of Des Moines' many bike trails. Bike or take a short drive over to the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park which features artwork by 22 of the world's most celebrated artists. The pedestrian friendly 4.4 acre park is located in the heart of downtown Des Moines. There is plenty of green space to relax or walk around and enjoy the art. A short 5 minute drive from the house will get you to the Court Avenue District. From baseball to Broadway, the Court District is also the heart of Des Moines’ downtown activity base. This area proudly hosts the Downtown Farmers' Market, one of the country's largest outdoor markets enticing throngs of weekend shoppers, street entertainers and musicians every Saturday morning 7AM-Noon from May through October. The Civic Center of Greater Des Moines serves as an outstanding performing arts center. Principal Park, one of the nation’s most breathtaking minor league ballparks and home to the Iowa Cubs (AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) offers major league fun, and the new $62 million Science Center of Iowa and Blank IMAX Dome Theater engages and inspires visitors of all ages. Just a bit further East you will find yourself in the Historic East Village. This is Des Moines’ most vibrant and diverse district, boasting many of the finest local shopping, dining, nightlife and commerce in Iowa. The East Village encompasses some of Iowa’s most significant buildings, including the State Capitol and numerous buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Collin2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very clean and in a great location right off the interstate. Plenty of space for the 7 of us and we even had an educational event in the morning. The beds were comfy and everything was in order! I would chose this location again if the need presented itself. So much more for your money than a hotel!!!

    Diane2019-08-12T00:00:00Z

    Colleen2019-08-09T00:00:00Z

  • Dat and Alan's place is to die for!! Spotless, comfortable, private, and absolutely everything you'd want in an Air B&B. They are friendly and absolutely hilarious. They made my stay 100% better. I was in town for a conference and couldn't imagine making it through my crazy weekend without their hospitality. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when I visit Des Moines!

    Allison2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This home is worth coming to just to look at it- beautiful and stylish touches in every room. Both in the city and a peaceful space. Cleaner than any hotel. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else when visiting the area.

    Angela2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I travel to Des Moines periodically for work and usually stay in a hotel. At the recommendation of a friend, I stayed at Dat and Alan's home, and this is now going to be my go-to place. I was so comfortable, Dat and Alan are very welcoming, and their home is lovely and spotless. Plus it's in a great location for downtown. Alan and Dat are warm and friendly, and we had some good conversations. I highly recommend Alan and Dat's home. It will be your new go-to place in Des Moines, too.

    Diane2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

    Our vintage 3+BR house was built in 1910 and is close to public transportation and 11 blocks from downtown. Get the privacy of a whole house for the cost of a one room rental. Large lot with landscaping, trees, patio, and off street parking. Owners are still making updates. Ethnically mixed neighborhood.
    This is a "renovated and rescued" 3+BR, 100 yr. old house available for less than a daily "one room" rental. Not an apt, duplex, or basement but a complete 2 story house in an ethnically mixed but safe neighborhood. Free washer and dryer on main level. It is furnished with second hand stuff, so not new or deluxe. We try very hard to keep it clean. We are still working on updating and remodeling it. There is off street parking for two vehicles at the back of the house, entered off the alley. The alley is just North of the fire station at 10th and University. Drive in and you will find our wood chip parking pad in the back. Guests may also park out front.
    Owners personally know neighbors on each side of the house and they are nice, friendly people.
  • Used all three beds, so comfortable!

    Mary2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • This is our 10th or 11th time staying here. We are three musicians, so it works perfect for us due to its location close to the Civic Center. Plus the Pho at C-Fresh Market is FANTASTIC! We’ll be back again soon I’m sure!

  • This place is awesome. I love that Jack and Kristy don’t oversell you on the place - They simply call it as it is - A vintage house. It’s vintage, clean, and spacious. Me and my two friends all had our own rooms to sleep in instead of all being crammed into a hotel room. Will stay again next time we are in the area as it is such a good value and such a great location to downtown.

  • Very nice little house. My sister said the house was warm and inviting. She said it was like the house was giving her a big hug! Would definitely recommend!

    Robin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Round House is like a great big hug embracing with warmth and the comfort of home. It comfortably sleeps two, any more than that may be a bit crowded. It is perfectly located to most all locations you'd want to get to on a visit to Des Moines. Highly recommended!

    Frederick2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay. Clean, cool, and filled with everything you need. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Max2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Spotless, stylish space..... with holiday touches for the season! We stayed for a week in Micole's cute round house. We did not cook or spend much time in the house, but it was very well equipped should one want to cook. While the bathroom is small, the shower is very roomy! Comfortable queen beds in each bedroom. We had an issue with the Nest heating unit and our host was VERY responsive in trying to solve the issue. Thanks for a great stay!

    Jean2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    This extra-large one bedroom unit is in the restored basement of an 1898 Richardson-Romanesque bank building on State Center's Main Street. Incorporating a modern aesthetic with original stone masonry walls, it is an unexpected treat in the town's "Remarkable Row" of turn-of-the-century storefront buildings.
    I doubt there is another unit nearby to compare this to, with its combination of modern aesthetic and beautiful original stone masonry. As a former resident who visits frequently, I created this unit because I wanted to stay close to friends and family IN the town of State Center as opposed to the nearest hotels in towns many miles away. Once the unit was complete, I received numerous requests to rent the unit from others with connections to State Center who also preferred to stay IN the town, and the B&B was born. Most guests have a tie to the town, though we've had numerous others brought to the area for business in Marshalltown to the east, Ames/Iowa State University to the west, and Des Moines 45 miles southwest. And now that we've joined AirBnB, we've had a huge variety of people come through, some to hike or fish in local parks, some traveling cross-country and many just curious to explore what a small midwest farming community is like. The location allows one to be immersed in the charm and rhythm of rural small-town life in this friendly, busy village.
    This is vanishing small-town agricultural America at its most authentic. There is a large grain milling operation on Main Street just to the west, and farm tractors on Main Street are not uncommon. The main east-west Union Pacific railroad line runs just north of Main Street, with an average of over 80 trains per day passing through daily, great for train buffs. History buffs will enjoy our "Remarkable Row", 13 continuous attached turn-of-the-century storefronts each with individual character and most sporting recent renovations. Explore the Main Street shops or take in a high school sporting event during your stay and meet the friendly locals!
  • Great location, stylish place, quiet spot.

    Linda2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome home. I enjoyed my stay here. I had a wedding in Des Moines which was only a short distance away. He made this stay extremely comfortable for me!

  • We stayed here in State Center for the Iowa Corn 300 2019. It was an amazing stay! The underground was clean, stylish and thankfully air conditioned. The locals where so nice and friendly, we felt right at home. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the state center area choose the underground.

    Jessen2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • State center is the perfect small town Iowa. We were looking for a quiet weekend away and we were very happy. The underground apartment was very comfortable , with lots of little personal touches from the host. Beautifully decorated. We highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back

    State Center, IA, United States

    This 2 BR/2 BA unit has a sleeper sofa, so it can sleep six in a pinch, though the sofa would be best for 1 adult or 2 kids. It is in downtown State Center, 20 minutes W of Marshalltown, 25 mins E of Ames/ISU and 45 mins from Des Moines. Within 3-4 blocks are; -2 restaurants -1 bar -Bank with 24-hour ATM -Watson’s Grocery Museum -Gutekunst Public Library -One Room Schoolhouse -Restored Train Station -Public Rose Garden Come wander around and experience our farming village!
    This unit was created because of guest requests for a two bedroom unit which could accommodate longer stays. We’ve hosted numerous travelers as well as lots of former locals back here visiting. We also get people temporarily working in Marshalltown, Ames or with ISU who want to experience an authentic small farming community.
    We’re right in downtown State Center, 20 minutes west of Marshalltown and 25 minutes east of Ames and ISU. Within 3-4 blocks are; -2 restaurants -1 bar -Bank with 24-hour ATM -Watson’s Grocery Museum -Gutekunst Public Library -One Room Schoolhouse -Restored Train Station -Public Rose Garden This unit is accessed through the alley behind the chiropractic office at 114 W. Main Street. While I’m sure the alley access is a concern to some city folks, this is a small town of about 1450 people, with little crime other than an occasional domestic dispute or some middle-school mischief. The alley is paved, well-lit and there is also a long-term tenant whose unit shares the same entry vestibule.
  • Was great.

    Brooke2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

    The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The layout is a four level split the bedroom is on the top floor. Kitchen living room other spaces can be used as needed and negotiated. I work part-time so I'll be in and out of the house but you will have access to the house with the key for your convenience.
    The bedroom has a closet and a dresser. Bathroom is on the same floor does include shower or jacuzzi tub if you wish to make use of it. Bathroom door also has a lock on it.
    The neighborhood is residential but there is a Walgreens within a mile. A shopping center with movie theater within 2 miles. There's a grocery store within 2 mi. It's a nice area to take a walk weather permitting.

    Due to COVID we have stopped autobooking at this building. Please send an inquiry as we have other potentially other options depending on the health situation at the time. You will feel super welcome here in the heart of Des Moines! Whether you're here for business, downtown nightlife, or a relaxing weekend getaway, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place and location than this one.
    Dark floors and a wide open floor plan will give you a great sense of roominess. I provide a full kitchen with all relevant kitchen amenities. Need coffee? This unit comes with a coffeemaker and ground medium roast coffee. Sugar, sweet n’ low, and half & half are provided. PARKING PROVIDED WITH THIS UNIT. If you are bringing one car, I can get you a spot at the adjacent garage. If you need this spot please message me before your stay so that I can make sure the spot is available for you. If you are bringing multiple cars I recommend skywalk parking garage, which is close to the unit. They do charge for parking. Parking at the free garage comes with a few extra steps on check in. You’ll need to find street parking or park at the local grocery store to pick up the garage door opener. Yes it’s frustrating to have extra steps but these steps keep the building secure. By following them you’ll have free parking in an area that’s normally a parking nightmare.
    The local neighborhood is always abuzz with events. You'll be less than a 5 minute walking distance from: Hy-Vee Grocery Store Java Joe's Coffee Shop Wasabi Tao Sushi/Japanese Restaurant Vivian's Diner Fong's Pizza the list goes on and on...

    Lovely Victorian home in Historic district.
    Quiet and well appointed . The kitchen is new and clean. The 4 common area rooms gives you a real feeling of home. The bedrooms are accessed by a vintage but sturdy yet steep staircase.
    24 years and counting, I have watched the urban reboot of the hip downtown scene. Easy interstate, and center city access. Quiet yet historic.

  • Daley’s place was so amazing! My boyfriend and I were in need of a last minute place to stay on our cross country move and they prepped the house quickly for us. (Sparkly clean) and had thoughtful touches of of snacks and nice music playing when we arrived. I highly suggest staying at their home if you are in the area!

    This 1899 Victorian home is located in the heart of historic Boone, Iowa. Boone is ~50 miles from Des Moines and ~18 miles from Ames. The home has 3 outdoor relaxation seating areas (in warm months) - 2 porches and a brick patio.
    Your private room includes a bed, desk & chair, luggage stand, closet space, dresser, and fan if desired. The kitchen, living room and 2 dining rooms are shared space and you are welcome to use them. This listing is for one bedroom in the house with a shared bathroom, next to the bedroom, but not attached. This bathroom includes a claw foot tub retrofitted with a shower. The tub has slightly sloped sides and is on a platform, so there is a step down to get out of the tub. A step stool is provided in case needed. (See pictures.) There is another full bath on the main floor (with tub but no shower). The 2 guest bathrooms are not used by the homeowner, but may be shared with potentially other guests.
    The home is conveniently located near downtown, a few blocks from restaurants, shopping, coffee shop/bakery, grocery store, antique stores, and only 1 mile from the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad Train.
  • Rebecca was very accommodating & made sure I knew exactly where I was staying within the house. Very quick to respond, as well.

    Michaela2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home with a super amazing hostess! She is like wonder woman. I'm so glad I chose Rebecca's place. I would love to stay there again and I absolutely recommend this Air B&B to anyone.

    Eddie2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely had an amazing stay with Rebecca. Her place was elegant and quiet with friendly hospitality and fantastic space. We will be back again and again.

    Rhonda2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Rebecca's place was like stepping into the past...in the best possible way. She greeted us at the door and showed us around her beautiful victorian home. Everything was so interesting to look at! Our room and the shared bathroom were SPARKLING clean! Bed was comfy and it was a quiet restful night. I cannot stress how clean the accommodations were...especially the bathroom! She left nice little touches for guest comfort. Thank you Rebecca for a lovely night's stay. I hope we will come back when we are in the Ames/Boone area!

    Sue2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Charming house! Lots of character and history. Great price for when we needed a room for a nearby wedding. Rebecca is sweet and accommodating!

    Rachel2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Rebecca was very friendly and accommodating! Highly recommend.

    Nicholas2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful historic home - ✔️ Close to downtown Boone - ✔️ Short drive to Ames (and football games) -✔️ Clean, comfortable bed - ✔️ Clean room and bathroom (with a footed tub even?!) - ✔️ Porch to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or tea- ✔️ Outstanding host -✔️✔️✔️ My stay at Rebecca’s has been nothing short of amazing. I just started vet school in Ames and commute every day to school. Rebecca is kind, friendly, willing to go out of her way to make sure everything is well with your stay, and honestly this house feels like a home away from home! I’m permanently moving to the area for school but would 100% recommend this house to anyone staying in Ames or Boone or nearby. 🐵

    Kelly2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Rebecca was lovely. Her home was beautiful and she was a delight to talk to.

    Come cheer on the Cyclones or visit a start-up company in Ames, and stay in a private guest suite separate from the main house. • Private secure keyless entry • Bedroom and bath • Close to research park and Jack Trice Stadium. • Free on-street parking • Floor mattress is available upon request • Keurig and a few K-cups available • Roku TV with Hulu Live TV
    We are in a friendly, quiet neighborhood. We are close enough to the stadium that it’s very easy to get to, but far enough away from campus noise to avoid disturbance. The research park is a walkable distance away. There is a playground nearby, and anything in Ames is 15 minutes away or less by car. There is a Cyride bus stop nearby. We are close to Provisions restaurant, and have easy access to Highway 30. We are also right next to a bike trail.
  • Scott's place was great

    Deana2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, excellent value. The space is in the owners garage, & feels very private. Scott & Michelle are available if you need anything & are very hospitable. I would definitely stay here again!

    Tristan2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Scott's place is clean and so convenient when we stayed there for our son's graduation weekend. Thank you!

    Jeri2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Scott’s place was perfect for my short stay. Very clean and convenient. Thank you!

    Tim2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little space. Electric heater adds a nice, comfy feeling. Super comfy bed.

    Evy2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice place, with thoughtful touches. It’s very private and located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. Thanks for a nice space!

    Margo2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first experience with Airbnb and it did not disappoint. Room was clean and a great place to stay during my time in Ames. I plan to stay here again if I return.

    Eric2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • The suite is comfortable and private, with its own entrance. A small man-made "babbling brook" between the suite and house provided a quiet and relaxing ambient sound. A nice touch included a Roku TV. Forced air heat was supplied to the room, but there was also an electric Duraflame heater with a "burning log" visual effect, which could be used as well. For breakfast, the Filling Station nearby has excellent offerings, served into the early afternoon. Provisions Lot F, a full-service restaurant, is also nearby. Note that if you will use the Cyride bus system to campus or downtown, the Brown route may not travel the whole way to the Research Park past a certain hour mid-evening, and weekends have reduced service.
