*We experienced this beautiful patch of the Loess Hills over the summer, but it’s available all year long. Our stay at R.T. Reese Homestead was complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
We drove through Eastern, Central, and then deep into the Western Iowa reaches of Monona County along the Missouri River, and its bordering our Nebraska neighbors. Before you encounter the Missouri you’ll find the Loess Hills and it’s endless scenery that’s unique to Iowa and North America. In the middle of this stretch of wilderness, that stretches into 7 Iowa counties, is the small community of Turin that seems to conform its layout right into the ancient silt of the hills. It’s positioned close to nearby Onawa, the Monona County seat, and directly on the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway. Just down the road from Turin’s city limits is the R.T. Reese Homestead and one of the most memorable cabins we’ve ever seen on our gallivants. Scenic and cozy Western Iowa at its finest at a cabin ready for all of us year round.

Saying that we wanted to spend more days at the Reese cabin is a giant understatement. This homestead had a big and very memorable impact on our Western Iowa road trip and I’m confident that we’re not the only ones that have felt that. Anytime of year is a great time of year to visit this area, but if you want to wait for summer then make your reservations ASAP! And don’t forget that weekdays may be easier to book so let’s make it happen. The ancient Loess Hills of Western Iowa has a homestead that’s ideal for any traveler in Monona County!
