Where you’ll be

Farmington, Iowa, United States

We love it that our B & B is only two blocks from the Des Moines River and that Farmington is part of the Mormon Trail. Just across the river is Indian Lake Park, 166 gorgeous acres filled with wildlife. Indian Lake itself, the 44-acre crown jewel of the park, offers swimming, fishing, canoes for rent, and a nature trail for hiking around its perimeter. Farmington also has a beautiful extended riverfront park with benches and a picnic shelter, and is adjacent to Shimek State Forest (8,000+ acres).

My husband David and I are the innkeepers of Porch Time Bed and Breakfast in Farmington, Iowa. We moved to Farmington from Florida in 2013, seeking a slower, less-stressful life near family doing the things we truly enjoy. We chose Farmington for its extremely friendly, welcoming people; natural beauty, and abundance of simple pleasures. Openin (Website hidden by Airbnb) just seemed the next most natural and right thing to do, and this allows us to extend hospitality--which we love! David is a carpenter, graphic artist, city councilman, and wonderful husband, and I am a teacher and love to write, paddle rivers, entertain, and read. We both try to contribute all we can to our community, and helping others discover the joys of living in and visiting Van Buren County.
