Our Story

Current owners, Alison & Eric, bought this property after it had been left vacant for a few years as their first home. They have worked on restoring some of its natural beauty, charm and history while incorporating modern day conveniences. The couple formerly from Illinois, raised a family in the home during part of the restoration process. While loving the character and charm that "vintage" homes bring, it definitely takes a special person to appreciate the "challenges" that they often present too, but it is rewarding to see History Come Back to Life! Because WHERE you stay should be part of your DESTINATION EXPERIENCE too.

Thank you for choosing the

Your Stay

This is a Vintage Vacation Rental to EXPERIENCE. Formerly owned by Railroad Tycoon, John Insley Blair (pictured), this is a 150+ years old home that was built in 1867. The same year the first railroad tracks were laid in Iowa. Immerse your stay in the Boone, Iowa experience with the added artwork, decor and charm themed with Trains, Iowa and the Midwest in this vacation property referred to as the 607 Guest House LLC.


The home’s interior has been restored to bring back some of its natural beauty, charm and history, while incorporating modern day conveniences like a heated bathroom floor and Zoned Central Air Conditioning System. From refinishing the 150+ years old heart pine floors to restoring the interior wood windows with functional weights & pulleys and maintaining the original lead glass window panes, it’s an ongoing process that we will continue to the exterior.
