Enjoy your morning coffee or happy hour on the bank while watching the lake come to life or by watching boaters and jet skiiers out on the water. The Nashua Lake House can be rented by the day, week or month. Area attractions include Little Brown Church (5 miles), fairgrounds (1 mile) river rafting (10 miles/Charles City), Davis motorcycle rally (20 miles/New Hampton) and more. The back yard is a great place to enjoy the fireworks during Water Over the Dam Days. Chuckwagon races and other events are frequently held at the fairgrounds located within a mile of the house.
The property includes a small cement dock which can be accessed by descending 40 steps from the top of the river bank. The steps are rather steep but a sturdy hand railing is available--with 40 steep steps, it doesn't hurt to have qualities similar to a mountain goat! (Having said that, our kids carry kayaks up and down the steps but we want to help potential guests be aware that a high, spectacular view of the water also equates to a long journey down to the dock and the water and a steep bank with a sharp drop off.)
Cedar Lake is a popular fishing location on the Cedar River, both from a boat or from popular spots like immediately below the dam. Additionally, guests have caught some nice sized catfish from the dock located on the property. There are two public areas located within a few blocks where a boat can be put in. A nice public park and a small public beach are also within a few blocks.
A large 45 x 30 foot block patio was added near the edge of the bank in 2014. This is great place to sit and relax. A firepit is located on the patio as is ample seating and two dining tables.. The view of the water is one of the best on the lake. The patio sits high above the water and the bank. Because of the number of steps and the high bank, please employ common sense when dealing with alcohol and small children. There are steps to access the dock and the water, 40 in number.
Nashua is a small town in northeast Iowa that provides the pleasures of small town living, including an ice cream shop located within walking distance that makes great ice cream treats, burgers and broasted chicken.

Longer term rentals have been utilized for traveling short term professionals such as nurses or while guests' primary homes were going through renovations. Our guests have told us that the house is homey and comfortable. The Lake House allows you to keep your guests close but not underfoot.
