Enjoy some popcorn or a glass of wine while watching a movie on the flat screen TV in the living room. Enjoy a peaceful afternoon while relaxing on the patio on a beautiful spring, summer or fall day. Cozy up to the gas fire pit on a chilly evening.

A must do if you are ever close to Amana Iowa. Stayed here instead of Iowa city. Short drive and far better and cheaper than rooms in Iowa city. You won't be disappointed.
