We are a farm about 20 miles south of Interstate 80. What Cheer hosts a large flea market 3 times a year and is the site of the Keokuk County fair and car races. A couple of wineries are within a 45 minute drive. The Amana Colonies are one hour away, as are the Amish and Mennonite communities near Kalona, Iowa.
We live one mile off of a hard surface road on a gravel road. There are no sharp curves or hills. The west side of our pull-through drive has a low hanging maple tree but by pulling onto the grass the branch can be avoided. The pull through driveway has a very slight slope in the area near the power pole.
We have a pull-through gravel drive way that wraps around the farm house, with parking available on grass in dry weather and on the gravel driveway when wet.
We do several last minute camping trips in the summer, so occasionally a date that is listed as open will not be available. When possible we will rearrange our schedule so that we can host you.

This is a beautiful place and the hosts really appreciate it although they love to travel and to talk about travel experiences. G arkedd me in a flat spot on the driveway under some cool shade trees. We sat out by a fire ring each evening talking about our adventures. They have done some amazing trips by boat (a trawler) and a 24 foot RV. They are great hosts, a pleasure to visit. I travelled to Fairfield while there and enjoyed the town.
Beautiful parking spot on a century farm. Had a great conversation covering RV and boat travel and more with hosts at fire.
Glenn112233 were super nice and welcoming. There were a number of spots to choose from and we chose to park where we could watch the sunset over the corn fields. Highly recommend.
Very nice location to stop over. Easy to get to (dirt roads) and site has great views of neighboring farms and fields.
Sat with hosts on second night and had an enjoyable conversation about travels and places seen.
Set up in driveway next to house, but more or less a private and quiet spot. Was able to rest and relax with no distractions or concerns.
Would definately stay there again!
Host were kind and were there to meet us. They had company visiting so we were not able to visit much but what visiting we did do was good. Nice level spot in the pull through driveway. Electric was offered but not needed. Good stop, thanks much.
Our experience with glen112233 was very cordial and relaxing. They were very accommodating to our to our every need. We strongly recommend them if you travel their area.
They were friendly & helpful. The hook-ups are modern and conveniently located. The ponds and country environment are lovely. Our experience was entirely pleasant.
We highly recommend this stay.
C__l and G____a we're the most gracious of Host. They were so welcoming and warm. We share many stories together. We would love to see them again one day.
We enjoyed our peaceful night on the farm. The kids loved running near the corn field and it was fun to see the grain bins up close.
The hosts were so sweet to us and they had some extra veggies from their garden and they shared some with us.
We enjoyed chatting (socially distanced) with them and highly recommend this location
Carl and Glenda were welcoming hosts. Sat out by the fire ring and had a good time talking. Went over to nearby AMANA colonies for a day.
Had trouble finding place. Google took us to a house 1/4 mile away. Drove by their home twice but did not stop. Different name on mailbox and no barn. Finally made contact and all was well.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Farm. Our hosts greeted us on arrival, made sure we were comfortable, and even built a (socially distant) fire where we sat and talked about books (we love books) and travel. We would have loved to stay longer. They are amazing and gracious hosts on a beautiful farm in some of the prettiest farmland we've seen in a while. We would definitely return. In fact, we hope to return some day.
What lovely couple and beautiful site! We so enjoyed meeting this charming couple and truly appreciated their wonderful hospitality. Many Thanks!
