Recreational Acreage with Cabin, Pond, and Building Site


This picturesque recreational acreage is conveniently located a short drive from Washington, Iowa. The property is perfect for those who want a getaway to relax, fish, hunt, or camp on their own slice of Southeast Iowa countryside.

The workweek stresses will melt away once you pull through the old ranch-style gates and across the breast of the pond dam. Ascending to the top of the old-growth oak hilltop, you’re greeted by a cozy cabin to stay for a relaxing weekend with family and friends. Light the outdoor fireplace, fire up the grill, and grab a few fishing rods to catch dinner at the pond.

The hilltop faces west, offering spectacular evening sunset views. This is where you’ll warm the soul and make memories for years to come, just as the current owner has done for the last four decades. Unlike many properties, this one sets up well to enjoy every season of the year. Hunt, fish, hike, ride ATVs, cut firewood, make campfires, go swimming, plant a garden, become a beekeeper… whatever you do, just enjoy your land.

If you’re a deer hunter, know that this acreage is a natural travel route, and monarch bucks have lived in the area. The pasture bottom is a prime location to attract deer and turkey from the neighboring habitat.

A walnut grove that was planted in the early 80s continues to mature, offering present-day diversity and habitat, but long-term financial possibilities. I assess the towering old-growth oaks to be probably 150 years old, standing the test of time as their beauty provides food and home for all kinds of wildlife.
