"I stayed at this clean and cozy home in mid-June of this year and really enjoyed my stay there. The house had all the conveniences and comforting decor as well. The kitchen sink window looking out at the large backyard ( with 4 Adirondack chairs & a fit pit) gave me a great Iowa-girl-returned- to-her-home-state feeling.. The computer area nook was a good spot for getting work and communications done while in town. I love the town of Osky! Their downtown area (w/ Eagle's Nest Christian bookstore--outstanding, and The Book Vault--also outstanding and beautiful city square is always a pleasing, interesting place to be. The local people are very helpful, friendly, to fun to talk to. I would stay again at this location in Oskaloosa and thank the hosts for their care and professionalism in offering this house for a comfy stay."
