This quaint 3BR farmhouse is set just outside Chariton, IA on our 120 acre farm. Great indoor and outdoor space-a perfect blend of rustic character and modern amenities. Train enthusiasts will love the passing trains. Nearby Level B roads perfect for hiking and riding. Hookups for your camper or 5th wheel. Shaded yard with magnificent views. Public Hunting ground adjacent to property.
“A very relaxing get-away location. Perfect for if you want peace, quiet, and relaxation. We enjoyed the very comfortable sofas and chairs, watching the very long trains go by (far enough away that they were not loud), playing in the snow, and some good old-fashioned family time. As is common and frequently unavoidable in rural Iowa, the internet is slow. This was a plus for us, but you should be aware of it if you need a fast connection. Misty provided some snacks to welcome us, check-in and out was easy, and everyone (2 kids, 2 adults) was delighted.”

“Great place, lovely location and great way to just get away”
English Creek Retreat is located just 2.5 miles south of the town of Knoxville on Highway 14. Surrounded by alfalfa fields, this small, one bedroom studio has a backcountry feel while being only a quarter mile off of the main highway.
“Of course Juile is a super host! She greeted us with a genuinely relaxed no-pressure and welcoming check-in. We were blown away at the personal touches in this particular Air BnB! The photos do not do justice to the extremely clean, decorated and well made cabin. This quaint space feels very open and accessible with its high ceilings, moveable sliding barn doors, many windows and thoughtful interior design. Everywhere I looked I saw IKEA branded furniture, appliances, lighting and more! If you know IKEA then you know it is well made, engineered for functionality and has exceptional craft. I felt like I was in an IKEA show room! Well done! One of my favorite features were the swiveling light fixtures on both sides of the bed. I was able to read my book in the early hours of morning without disturbing my sleeping partner. I also loved the electric fireplace situated in a vintage TV cabinet. This fireplace had a dozen different settings and really made the rainy day feel cozy as we played board games and settled in for a day indoors. The kitchen and bathrooms were gorgeous and spotless with many extra amenities not even mentioned in the listing! Another high five for Julie. I wish we could have stayed longer to fire up the grill and shoot some hoops, (both amenities are part of the private driveway at the cabin) but I guess we will save that for the next time we visit. Bottom line- If you’re looking for a place that is hassle free, spotless, well decorated and designed to provide you with a true feeling of comfort like your home away from home, this is the place! It is within a 5 minute drive to Knoxville and less than 10 minutes to beautiful Lake Red Rock. Don’t pass on this great stay...it really is better in person than in the pictures!”
