“Wonderful stay in unique vintage home”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Beautiful, refurbished vintage home with all the quaint details of a 100 year old property. The owner took great pride in showing us this home, explaining it's history and supplied everything we needed to make our stay a happy one. Including toiletries, extra blankets, pillows, games and movies. Full washer and dryer, laundry soap, a fully stocked kitchen, reusable shopping bags. Short walk to Walgreens, restaurants, video store and groceries, we even walked to Mamie Eisenhower's childhood home. The huge front porch was perfect for watching fire flies and bunnies in the front yard. And I loved the fact that everyone had their own rooms. It felt just like staying at your grandmother's house. My family and I (5 people) stayed three nights and will stay here again if we are in the area. Approx. 15 mins from Ames. Owner was very accessible to anything we needed.

Liked best: The unique property and the space
Liked least: The stairwell was a bit dark, perhaps need additional lights or tape on stairs would help.

“What a fabulous find!”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I really can't say enough about this place! We were greeted by Donovan when we arrived and he gave us tour, complete with the history of the building and the town of Boone. He showed us brochures and told us of the places to see nearby and about the local restaurants. He has done a beautiful job renovating this house. His attention to detail is really quite amazing. The home was even decorated for fall and even had the fall fragrance. Nice touch! Everything we needed was right there. The porch was fabulous to sit on enjoy with the whole family. When we ventured into town, we found that everyone was equally accommodating. The bakery is so yummy and just a short walk away. The local pubs are inexpensive and lots of fun and the food was pretty good as well. We golfed at the nearby Honey Creek Golf Club and it was really nice as well. And the Ranger was full of great information for us. I really just can't say enough about our stay in Boone. We will be back and we will be staying at the JB McHose house!
