Abandoned Farm in Iowa and Mystery Motel

We found this farm on the way to stay at Edinburgh Manor in Iowa. Unfortunately, I did not mark it on my maps, so I have no idea where this was or who lived there/owned the property. I still wanted to share the photos at least! I loved the curtains in the house.


Do you see me in the mirror? Duh, move out of the way, Trish!

This farm was really beautiful, and I wish I marked it on the map, because I don’t remember where it was.

I also wanted to add this little motel we found on the same trip. I have no idea exactly where it was. It had the most beautiful, bright doors.

If you happen to know where either of these are, please do not comment the location. Thank you!
