Iowa Cabin Rental Information
Iowa has a number of unique opportunities for cabin rentals.

On the western edge of Iowa there are the loess hills that run nearly the entire distance from the northern most border towards Minnesota to the southern most down into Missouri. All along these bluffs you will find quaint rentals, wineries, state parks and national landmarks.

If you're looking to rent a cabin on a lake you should look in the Okoboji/Spirit lake in the northern part of the state. Closer to the center of the state around Saylorville or Red Rock lakes is also a good place to explore. Farther south you can look around Rathbun Lake.

A number of state parks in Iowa have cabin rentals available. This information along with reservation process is available through the Iowa DNS website..

While there are many options for vacation cabin rentals around key attractions there are also interesting private rental options sprinkled throughout Iowa that you don't want to miss. Some feature hunting reserves while others are just laid back locations back in a corn field.

Big Grove Country Inn

18807 450th Street,
Oakland, IA
The pioneer cabin pictured above remains today inside the home that is owned by Rob & Kim Briggs, just east of Oakland, Iowa. This structure was built in the 1850's by the Mormons in Big Grove, Iowa (now Oakland).

When the Mormons moved to Utah, Alexander Frizzell (who settled in Iowa in 1860), bought the cabin, numbered each log, and moved it to its present location.

The following is an account taken from the history of Pottawattamie County, published in 1891:

"Alexander L. Frizzell moved to Center Township in 1860. He bought a log house which had been built by Mormons. The logs are oak, the best quality in the county. Mr. Frizzell moved this house to its present location, and here he has a home which for comfort and convenience is not surpassed by many a more pretentious looking structure. Here he and his good wife dispense hospitality in a generous way to friend and stranger, regardless of creed or doctrine. Mr. Frizzell has a fine orchard and grove, good stables, cribs, etc. and is engaged in general farming and stock raising. His farm comprises 160 acres, all under a splendid state of cultivation..."

Butler House On Grand Bed and Breakfast

4507 Grand Avenue,
Des Moines, IA
Butler House on Grand offers a choice of seven guest rooms, each unique in decor. All seven rooms feature the luxury of private bathrooms, air-conditioning, in-room televisions with cable/HBO, and in-room telephones and wireless internet. Each floor offers a galley "refreshment niche" replete with complimentary soft drinks, bottled water, microwave popcorn, and sweets.
In 1923 Robert and Edith Butler completed building their magnificent home on Grand Ave. The house was designed by the talented architect, Norman T. Vorse. The Butlers, along with their three children Robert, Margaret and John, Mr. Butler's parents and the family's cook, Mary, initially resided in Butler House. For 40 years the family roamed around in the 6100 sq. ft Tudor home.

Mrs. Butler sold the home in 1963 to an individual who wanted to convert the home into condos. Fortunately, the house was constructed too well and those plans were changed. The new owner instead decided to build a five-story condominium building on the site of the home's beautiful gardens. He then converted the home into an eight-unit apartment building. Careful effort was made to keep much of what was unique about the home. During the next thirty years the home was to have ten owners. The Smiths purchased the property in 1996 with the intention of converting the home back to a single dwelling and to welcome guests to its seven bedrooms.

The house was the Des Moines Symphony Alliance Designer Show House in the fall of 1999. The B&B features the work of area designers and artists.

Butler House on Grand has been used for numerous photo shoots for various Meredith Publications, including Better Homes & Gardens, Midwest Living and Paint Decor magazines. Butler House on Grand has also been featured in the Des Moines Register, Home Style Magazine, The New York Sun, Cityview, Des Moines Business Record, and 50 Plus.

We welcome you to relax in our grand living room, whether you choose to listen to music, play one of our many parlor games or sit by the hand carved, Gothic-style limestone fireplace. Enjoy the books and movies on our library shelves during your stay in our home.

Enjoy your delicious breakfast at Lauren's grandmother's table in the elegant dining room, and be certain to note the impressive molded plaster relief ceiling and polished marble floor.

Clark and Lauren and their two daughters, Darby and Brigid, look forward to making your stay comfortable.
