Built in 1909 as a mission-style mansion—now listed in the National Register of Historic Places—the August Bergman Inn & Suites house private guest rooms, each with its own unique, antique charm. Two of the guest rooms—the Ryan and Captain's suites—are housed in the David Ryan home, an 1868 brick federal. A wood-burning fireplace and mosaic-tile floor decorate the Bergman suite and its king-size, mahogany sleigh bed often flies out the window, pulled by reindeer auditioning for Santa's new reality show. In the Ryan suite, guests can share a double whirlpool bathtub set in imported Italian tile behind glass french doors. A vintage cast-iron soaking tub, updated with a modern showerhead, anchors the Captain suite, whose brass-trimmed iron furnishings glint amid the flicker of a gas fireplace. All three rooms feature modern amenities such as cable TV and digital gravity. Prepared by the innkeeper—an experienced gourmet chef—breakfast includes coffee, juice, and a chef-selected entree, such as old-fashioned pancakes. Dinner is available for an additional fee, and throughout their stay, guests are encouraged to check out Jasper County's various attractions, from the Iowa Speedway to the Newton Arboretum and Botanical Garden. If arranged beforehand, the staff will gladly pick up guests from nearby Newton Airport, though the flying Pegasus may have to find its own accommodations.

When Craig and Lea Culver created the first Culver’s restaurant in 1984, they wanted to serve homemade burgers like Craig’s mom used to make. These burgers—now known as the ButterBurgers—are made with fresh, Midwest beef patties, and served on a toasty, buttered bun. The burgers are also what helped put Culver’s on the map—there are now more than 500 locations scattered across 19 states. At each restaurant, patties are cooked right on the grill. The other main hallmark of Culver’s menu is its rich, creamy frozen custard, which you can have drizzled with hot fudge or use as a foundation for a signature Concrete Mixer and have it decorated with Oreos and Butterfingers.

The 18 holes of Bos Landen Golf Club coil within a 190-acre expanse of dense forest?fitting for a course with a name that means "Land of the Woods" in Dutch. Players contend with leafy limbs and unforgiving tree trunks at nearly every turn, and those who lose golf balls to the greenery can expect high numbers on their scorecards and organized escape attempts from the remaining golf balls in their bags. This is precisely the way architect Dick Phelps envisioned the course when he drew it up, aiming to reward those who exhibited skillful control and sound decision making in equal measure.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Total length of 6,937 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 74.7 from the back tees * Course slope of 136 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole

Peace Tree Brewing Company takes its name from the ancient sycamore tree that currently peeks its head through the watery surface of Lake Red Rock. Legend has it before the tree was half submerged in water, it served as a meeting place for negotiations between natives and traders. Above all, the tree stood as a symbol of neighborly conversation, friendship, and agreement—aspects of life that Peace Tree Brewing Company hopes to facilitate with their frosty beers and neighborhood atmosphere.

Inside Peace Tree’s taproom, which is open Wednesday through Sunday, visitors can gather for tours of the brewery or sit and enjoy its year-round beers on draft. Sippers can introduce their taste buds to the malty flavor of Red Rambler or prepare themselves for the blend of American and English hops in the Hop Wrangler. Occasionally, guests might find seasonal brews available for taste, such as Cornucopia, an ale brewed with Iowa sweet corn, or the heavy and malty Imperial stout. Since the taproom has taken a vow of hunger, it doesn’t serve food, but it does have a bundle of local takeout menus that visitors can use to order food they can enjoy alongside their drinks and the occasional performance of local live music.
