Never met the staff - except a cleaning person who gave me the key since no one else was around. The door was locked at 9:30 Sunday morning when we went to check out (left the key on the porch in a pot). The "outside fire" is a spot in the grass someone cleared and put some wood. The inside was actually nice - I can say that. The view was of a tin roof and motor homes. Not much in the town at all. Not sure if the recession killed it or just small town USA. People in the town were very friendly. We spent the day shopping in Galena and a movie in Dubuque - there really was nothing else to do. Galena is about 40 minutes away and Dubuque is 20 minutes away.
The country side in the part of Iowa is beautiful!!!
We "won" this through a local newspaper auction and I planned it for our 12th wedding anniversary.
