Minimal gardening is needed, though you are welcome if you enjoy it, we have a crew that mows regularly.

Are you an artist or writer? There is an office with wifi, printer and desk, and windows all around giving wonderful light on the north side of the house. Bring your coffee up here and listen to the birds in the morning,

The library is stocked with a variety of books, or if you prefer there is a large screen TV with cable and DVD player (and a pretty good collection of DVDs) in the basement family room. 

If you like going out, Cedar Rapids has an up and coming downtown, and NewBo, where a lot of boutique restaurants and shops are located. There are parks, concerts, theaters, and museums. Iowa is a beautiful state and the people are particularly welcoming. This will be a great place to come and relax.

There will be a car available for use. Instructions about utilities, garbage etc. will be provided.

You are welcome to use whatever food you find in the pantry or refrigerator. Read the instruction manual before using the pro style gas range. It has features that will make you want to try them even if you don’t usually cook much (such as a microwave oven, and an oven for steam cooking.

The house has a security system that is monitored. Part of learning the house is learning that. We have no tele landline so you will need to provide your own cell .
