Where We're Located

Iowa is strategically located in the Midwest. Our location in Waterloo is not far from key cities such as Minneapolis/St Paul, Madison, Chicago, St Louis, and Kansas City.


Ours is one of several modest houses in an older neighborhood nestled between two cities in northeast Iowa, within biking and walking distance of urban landscape and state park trails. The people in Iowa are friendly and the hosts are very warm and inviting. Whether you come for a day or a week, give yourself the chance to ‘be still and know’ and be known, so you can better make Him known.

What if I have more questions?
