This beautiful 660 +/- acre whitetail manager’s dream is located in Monroe County, Iowa, just 4.5 miles Southeast of Albia, Iowa, and just a ½ mile from the Albia airport.

As you continue up the main drive you will find the main lodge and guesthouse. The main lodge offers 3 Bedrooms, Kitchen with Custom cabinets, 2 Full Bathrooms, 3 Car Garage, Laundry Hookups, and a great view of the farm. The guest lodge has 1 Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Kitchen and 2 Car Garage providing peace and quiet for multiple guests. The property boasts 247 acres of crop land, comprised of 145 acres currently being cash rented and 102 acres CRP, providing a healthy return each year. The remaining 413 acres consists of great bedding habitat including bramble, thick creek bottoms, and grassy cedar thickets. Big hardwood ridges, creek banks and crossings make for great pinch points and stand locations between bedding areas for those crisp November mornings. Multiple secluded fields give you many options to leave standing grain or plant a variety of forage types, to hold and ambush deer during the season. With two different access points from the South and a farm road that winds through the property, all parts of this amazing tract are easily accessible. Two of the four ponds that scatter the farm have been stocked, allowing for additional recreation in the spring and summer months. This farm has everything you need to manage a strong Southern Iowa deer herd in Monroe County; one of the most sought-after counties in Iowa, which holds its own for world-class whitetail deer hunting every year. The diversity of the terrain and amount of deer sign on this farm is something you just have to see in person to appreciate.
