This rustic cottage is a quiet retreat in the heart of the Middle Raccoon River Valley. Situated on our private acreage, the cottage overlooks a prairie and garden. With close proximity to Whiterock Conservancy, guests can easily access hiking and mountain biking trails or float the nearby river. A "rookery" is a nesting site for herons, a bird that prefers quiet, undisturbed habitat near water. And so the Rookery Cottage seeks to provide a natural escape from the daily grind.
Cozy winter or sunny summer getaway- 45 minutes from Des Moines- at Lake Panorama! Enjoy lake life for short trip or a longer stay! Condo is fully equipped for kids (and adults) to make a great family vacation!
The main attraction is the par-72 golf course that has been recognized as one of Iowa’s most popular and well-conditioned courses for the past four decades. With superb playing conditions throughout the golf season, the course has earned a 4-Star Rating from Golf Digest in its “Places to Play in America” publication.
