The Nashua Lake House offers a fully furnished three bedroom home on Cedar Lake in Nashua, Iowa. This unit is equipped with a king bed and two queens (each with ceiling fans), linens, dining needs, pots and pans, two 32" flat screen televisions each with a DVD player, charcoal grill, patio furniture and a great view of Cedar Lake from a large paved patio! Off street parking on a hard surface is available. The home is equipped with central air and heat and features a jetted tub and shower combination. There is a laundry facility with washer and dryer for use by guests. The unit underwent a significant update in 2012 and is ready for your vacation and family gathering needs. The home is equipped with a keyless entry system which will be programmed to the four digit code of your choice. Wireless internet is available throughout the house.
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.
Nashua Lake House is a great place for a short term get away. It is also a good solution when your house is overflowing with guests for weddings, funerals, family gatherings around the holidays, hunting and fishing trips, extended stays when family members are in a nursing home or hospital, etc. It has also been used to host "girl get away weekends", bridal showers, quilting groups, and birthday parties. 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....Read more

We stayed at the Nashua Lake house for our girls weekend. My two friends had never been there before and just loved it. We loved the antiques throughout the house and they make the house feel very homey. We enjoyed the fire pit in the evening and had a beautiful view of the lake. We are looking forward to coming back. Thanks Linda!

Well this house absolutely beautiful! The greatest place to live in! A great getaway for anyone! All though next time we come when it's a lot warmer lol we had a great time even though it was shortened to one night because I ended up I'm the hospital for three days, it was great! The owner Linda is really flexible and kind and answers any question you have. She is a great owner. We couldn't have chosen our stay any better. We would love to come back again one year! We suggest this house to anybody and everybody! Thank you Linda for your great service and wonderful home! Also there is Charles city about 15 minutes away with lots restaurants and stores and bowling and fun things to do a lot to do in warm conditions and cold. Nashua only has a subway and bar and ice cream shop to eat. Nice church. Nice community. Mall of america 2 and half hours away! The lake is good for fishing.

A short easy drive from Cedar Rapids, this was a wonderful retreat. The hardwood interior was beautifully complemented by elegant french doors, 'tiffany' style lamps and lots of natural light. Though the atmosphere was old world charm there was no lack of modern creature comforts. The beds and couches were comfortable, the beds had dual zone electric blankets, tvs were large, wireless worked perfectly, kitchen fully stocked and the jetted tub was a dream !! The lake was steps away, inviting a look even on this cold snowy weekend. I can't wait to come back when the weather would allow for enjoying the outside features more. The note said they were still doing renovations, I can't imagine what could be done to make it better.

The house was clean, comfortable, and had a great view of the lake. Loved the antique furnishings, beds were comfortable, and the kitchen fully equipped. Reservation, check in, and check out was very easy process. Will definitely stay again and recommend it to friends.
Thank you, Pat, both for the kind words and for scheduling your stay with us!
"Very relaxing & quiet!"

My husband and I were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Lake House. We came to the area from Georgia for a family wedding and extended our stay to spend more time with family & friends. Everything we could want and need was available & it was centrally located for where we wanted to be each day.
The relaxing part for us was the sunrise & sunset over the lake each day. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to stay!
