This charming cottage rental is situated among luscious forest trees on the shores of Lake Panorama in Iowa and can accommodate up to 10 guests, making it perfect for a family-friendly getaway. Guests will be treated to three exquisite bedrooms and two full bathrooms at this wonderful accommodation. The master bedroom features a lovely Tempurpedic king-size mattress adorned with comfortable bedding with wooden bedside tables and reading lamps. The two guest rooms both come with a queen-size bed, a wooden chest of drawers, as well as a side table with a reading lamp. Both bathrooms feature showers and toilets, and the first even boasts a jetted hot tub. Linens and towels are kindly provided.

The main living room features a high slanted ceiling with a ceiling fan and carpeted floors, and guests can relax in the three wonderfully comfortable couches sat around a wooden coffee table and a leather futon. There is a large flat-screen TV mounted to the wall, so guests can enjoy a movie night after a busy day. A fireplace adds a homey touch and keeps guests toasty during the winter months. Preparing home-cooked food is a possibility at this rental, as the fully equipped kitchen comes with all the requirements of an up-market vacation home including an oven, a stove, a kettle, a microwave, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, all the crockery and cutlery needed, as well as stainless steel cookware. A countertop island with three high-seater chairs can be found at the entrance. Kids and grown ups alike will love the game room, equipped with ping-pong table.

Outside, guests will be greeted by a stunning wooden patio and covered seating, a great place for guests to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine, and take in the sumptuous surroundings. Should guests wish to take the cooking outside to enjoy some al fresco dining, there is a barbecue grill available, and a fire pit to light up in the evenings. Pets are considered, but guests should inquire with the hosts upon booking.
