Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime!? Hidden away in Northeast Iowa, this nearly 500-acre nature preserve is one of the largest privately owned forested estates in the State of Iowa. Stunning harvestable hardwood forest, 2 lakes, streams flowing from natural springs, waterfall, organic fields & pasture lands, and different natural ecosystems. Hills and valleys with miles of forest roads and established ATV trails. Wildlife abounds: eagles, heron, songbirds, geese, ducks, deer, turkey, pheasant, red fox, squirrels, and many others make their homes here. Largemouth bass, bluegills, and green sunfish await a pole and patience. Wild harvestable foods, spring morel mushrooms, summertime grapes, strawberries, black raspberries, and blackberries for the picking, fall apples, nuts, and "hen of the woods" mushrooms...delicious! Add a nearly 2,000 square foot estate cottage that sleeps 8-10, a small A-frame cabin, a large garage/shop/office, and a pole barn for your recreational equipment. Close to Iowa's playground in the Great River Road country, gorgeous drives for motorcycling and sightseeing, rivers for kayaking, parks for camping & picnics, and lovely small communities with unique restaurants, shops, art, and year round festivals, music, and other activities. Simply Heaven.
