Live Like A Corn King In This Iowa Mansion That’s Filled With Surprises

In the farm fields just outside the small town of Conrad, Iowa, there’s a home that’s anything but modest. The Conrad Mansion is a 16,000-square-foot French provincial mansion that’s nothing like the surrounding homes in this rural area. The mansion was built by a person who made a fortune in agriculture.

You don’t have to make it big in corn to live big in the cornfields. This 25-bed home is for rent as a bed and breakfast and while it’s a little more expensive than a roadside motel, it’s surprisingly affordable if you have a large family or group. It also has more than a few surprises. Read on to see what you can enjoy and do in this amazing Iowa mansion.
