Hidden Hollow, outside Marquette/McGregor, Iowa, is 158 acres of endless possibilities. The property has been nurtured for wildlife diversity, especially birdlife, offering walking paths, prairies, and woodland habitats. Magnificent limestone outcroppings and a seasonal stream provide a serene entrance on the half-mile driveway. There are healthy populations of whitetail deer and wild turkey; with very limited hunting allowed over the past 40 years. Steps away from the property is a highly regarded trout stream which offers exceptional fishing. Within the acreage, there are two custom-built homes and a quaint guest cabin. Heron House, built in 1986 in the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright and his attention to creating peaceful, spiritual spaces, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Additionally, a greenhouse, a pergola, and passive solar, highlight the rustic grandeur of this home. The original Farmhouse was completely renovated in 2000 using many local and sustainable materials. Unique and natural touches are found throughout the home, highlighting the beauty of the surrounding area. The farmhouse has two bedrooms and one and a half baths, including a dreamy soaking tub. There is full basement with a fully finished laundry room. A restored limestone archway and patio provide the perfect spot for enjoying the surrounding natural beauty. Apart from Heron House and the Farmhouse is a custom built timber-frame one-room guest cabin. All told, each home represents the visions and energies of the Driftless Area’s architects, designers, and stonemasons, creating living spaces that bring all the comforts desired to the rustic setting. Both homes are equipped with fiber-optic internet. Lastly, this property shines because it has been maintained, sustained, and preserved by a first-class caretaker, which has made it a quintessential, successful vacation rental. There are endless possibilities for the creative entrepreneur. Ultimately, Hidden Hollow is a place to escape, energize, and explore. Imagine yourself here. See it today!
