About Sheila

Paul and Sheila operate the vacation rental/retreat, vineyard and winery.

Sheila purchased this house in 2005

Why Sheila chose Linn Grove

This property is for those who want to reconnect with family and friends and nature. It is for those who want to experience life in a rural farming community where you can hear the sheep baaahing in the evening, the coyotes yelping at dusk, the eagles and hawks soaring in the day, and millions of stars at night. Renew your spirit. It's time for some innspiration.

What makes this house unique

Be inspired in this relaxing country setting. Ideal for family reunions and retreats. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Five miles of trails connect the vineyards, river access points, and scenic spots on our 370 acre farm.

Insanely Awesome place for a Group Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from our vacation trip to IOWA. I’ve went to many vacations and have visited a number of vacation homes earlier, but this InnSpiration vacation home stands out among all of them. The owners have taken care of every minute necessity for the guests. This home has a fantastic lake view and a very well maintained backyard. The home itself is very spacious. Though the Tulip festival was a little disappointment for us due to the weather conditions, this home is truly great. I would recommend this home any day to a group of people planning to visit around Orange City/ IOWA. Many many thanks to the owners!

Loved It! Will be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, clean, fun place. Room for our four adult children, spouses and grand-kids. Beautiful house, yard and pond to canoe in (to cold for swimming yet). Room to eat in or out on the deck, plenty of places to play games in and out. Very clean. This is our second time and we are already planning on returning next year. Thanks Paul and Shelia!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home for our family of 10.

The temps were frigid but the house was warm and comfortable.

The home comes stocked with all that you need.

The backyard , deck and pond look beautiful. We will definitely plan to come back with warmer weather and will try the good wine !.

A hidden GEM in peaceful middle America...IOWA

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful country setting to enjoy sharing memories at our annual sibling get together. Open concept kitchen. dinning and gathering area is stocked to aide in preparing family meals. Owners have prepared the 5 bedroom 5 1/2 bath home for comfort. Exceptionally clean. This is our second time here. Spencer is a nice town, to the north, to shop and visit. The home of the famous Clay County Fair (starts weekend after Labor Day). Thanks to Sheila and Paul.

Great vacation stay. We all enjoyed the house.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone had a great time. What a wonderful facility! Very comfortable and welcoming. WE all enjoyed our time here -- we were 8 adults and 17 grandchildren ranging from 6 to 13 years of age. I have just a few comments or suggestions -- we were unable to locate a grill brush and grill utensils. Maybe we just did not look in the right place, but they would have been helpful. The only other item was Kleenex tissues -- it would have been helpful to know beforehand if they are not provided. Otherwise, everything else was wonderful. Thank you.

The clear water pond is great for swimming and fishing. Vineyards are an integrel part of the landscape. The winery is less than a block away. Our 370 acre timber farm with trails, vineyards, and the Little Sioux River running through it, starts just across the road. If you enjoy an outdoor rural setting this vacation rental is for you.

Innspiration Winery is located on the other side of the pond. Taste the wines. Enjoy a bottle while lounging on the deck. Schedule a winery and vineyard tour. Try your hand at karaoke. Listen to live music on Friday nights during the Summer and Fall.

Hunting pakages available for deer, turkey, and pheasant(call for info). The 370 arce farm adjacent to the vacation rental has 200 acres of timber, 70 acres of wetlands and CRP, and 100 acres of cropland. This farm supports good populations of whitetail deer and turkey. Guide service is available. Out of state hunters must enter the lottery to obtain a liciense for deer and turkey.

We are the perfect spot for cross country skiers. There are trails throughout our woods or down to the Little Sioux River. Call for snow conditions.

We see many eagles below the dam in Linn Grove during the winter, and there is an eagles nest about a mile south of the vacation rental so you can see eagles as often as you want.

The Little Sioux River offers opportunities for fishing, floating, canoeing, kayaking, or snowmobiling. We have a private access 1 1/2 mile South of the vacation rental or there are public access areas all along the river. Google 'inkapaduta canoe trail' or check out the 'linngroveiowa.org' website.
