meet the van kooten family
This is us… in a medium-sized nut shell:
WE are a small family loving small town life in rural Iowa. We work hard together. And believe in serving others as Christ has commanded us to do. We believe whole-hardheartedly that each and everyone of our guests is a blessing to us. Our hope is that we, too, can be a blessing to you and yours.

MELISSA is a work from home stay at home mom and the go-to girl for your rental needs. Melissa likes to spend time with her family, friends, and projects sprucing up our 100 year old farm house!

She has a very strong servant -hood personality always looking for ways to be helpful! She enjoys soccer and basketball! She loves all music and doing tricks on the trampoline!
LEXI is nine already! I am not sure how that happened! She is so generous and loves to make new friends. Her sweet little smile is contagious. She loves to make us laugh daily. She loves to play soccer and draw- she is quite the little artist!
JAX is an energetic ball of fur. He is 7 years old and really takes on the personalities of his breeds. He is part Lab and Newfoundland -- or so we think. Don't be surprised if he greets with a stick-- he loves new friends!
MILO - is our 6 month old fur baby. He is a teddy-poo (a mix between a Shiatsu/ Bichon with a Poodle). He is super sweet and cuddly. We are enjoying the new adventure. And, learning to keep our things picked up so he doesn't snack on them!
As you can see -- our hearts are full. Life on our little acreage is full of adventure.
