Carriage House Rest 

A Place for Solitude, Soul Care and Rest

Sunsets are beautiful. 


  A Little About Us

We are Arnie & Peg Christensen and have lived on the property for almost 40 years. The Carriage House Rest is an original Carriage House built to house carriages and hired hands who lived and worked on our historic Headquarters farm, in the 1890's. We live on the property in the main house.

The home is a fully renovated two story, three bedroom home completely furnished including linens and all kitchen equipment. Dishwasher included. Trash bin is provided with monthly pick up. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed.

With gorgeous sunsets and sunrises and lots of places to sit and walk, the Carriage House Rest is a simple cozy place to call home temporarily. Easy to get to  two minutes from the Underwood exit off I-80 East, and yet very private, located in the Iowa countryside. 

Where Are  We Located?

Just off Interstate I-80 East right outside the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, are easy to find and yet very private. Our address and map can be found at the bottom of the page. Google 26898 Juniper Rd. Underwood, IA and you can see just where we are.

How is the House Equipped?

The house is completely equipped and supplied with everything you need. Minus the WI-FI and televisions and computers! We can negotiate the WIFI with our provider and an additional cost.

With a completely equipped kitchen with dishes, pots and pans and silverware nothing is needed except you! Coffee and tea accessories supplied.


What Else Do You Provide?

We provide all furnishings and require that no new additional furniture may be moved in during your stay, except a TV if you want. Everything you need is there!  Towels and linens all provided with a full-sized washer & dryer and very comfortable beds.  Fully air conditioned and propane heat.

Sabbaticals or short term stays as short as six month leases are available with a variety of options. A month to month lease with expectations is required to be signed along with a fully refundable deposit if left in agreed terms. 

One Full Bathroom & Three Bedrooms

There is one full bath with a shower and stack-able washer & dryer. There is one Queen bed, a full sized hide-a-bed in the white couch downstairs, three twin beds. One roll away and one port-a-crib.

Each room has a desk, sitting chair and well lighted spaces perfect for study. 


Better than any extended stay chain hotel!!
