*Iowa’s byways are known for unique scenery on their endless miles of roads throughout the entire state. In the communities that these historic paths go through are the stories of countless locals and their beloved businesses and homes. Sometimes those two things go hand in hand. Our stay at the Fett Guesthouse was complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!
Marvin and JoAnn Fett knocked on the door of their own house and waited patiently at the back door. It may have not been their actual residence but it was their castle nonetheless. It’s their ambition to see this property thrive and make people happy which in return makes them enjoy their guesthouse that much more. I met them at the door and then welcomed’em into the dining room where I could see and experience the hardworking pride they had for the Fett Guesthouse, and the town it resides in.
We always look at the long list of sites, places to see, and things to do when getaways get planned. I urge every to keep that habit, but also start enjoying what’s right outside the front door of amazing lodging opportunities like this. Walking distance from the Fett Guesthouse is a wonderful park that can also accommodate campers and RVs. Just across the nearby historic bridge are restaurants, ice cream, pizza, and legendary burgers with all of it in walking distance from the Fett Guesthouse. All this with the rest of Adair, White Pole Road Scenic Byway, Greenfield, Guthrie County, and Des Moines just to the east on I-80. However, that front porch on Broad Street-Adair might be all the vacation you need.
