About Christal Gamm
Erich and I are from Northeast Iowa and have two businesses in West Union. We have two children that go to North Fayette Valley School district. We have been campers, RV travelers and then purchased a trailer in Harpers Ferry several years ago and fell in love with the town and the people here.
Christal Gamm purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Christal Gamm chose Harpers Ferry
We purchased what was known as The Harbor House in 2016 and did a total remodel to make it our cabin in the front portion of the building and a rental condo in the rear portion . We enjoy this area because of the beautiful view of the river, the stunning bluffs with thick foliage and the peacefulness of the town. We enjoy going for bike rides with our kids through Harpers or hopping onto the golf cart and visiting friends. We are close to the boat landing so access to the river takes no extra time. We enjoy taking our kids out on the Mississippi River in our boat. They enjoy skiing, tubing, and visiting with friends at the beautiful sand bars. At the end of the day we enjoy grilling out and sitting around a campfire roasting s'mores and watching the sunset behind the bluff creating a picture perfect scenery.
What makes this Condo unique
We designed Harpers Hideaway to have little touches throughout that would remind people of the beauty that Iowa possesses.

We really in love with the house. Each room has a great condition, moreover we were allowed to party, what we really loved. Our 4 days were incredible in this house. Thanks a lot!
My family of 8 adults and two children had a great time here. Even through it rain all three days. Lots of room and was clean. Nice showers. Like all places it has a few issues but what place doesn't. For the price I was HAPPY. They answer my texts reasonable fast and helped with everything they could. Only had 2 things that I didn't like, one there is no hand railing on steps going up stairs and my 16 month grandson kept going up and down giving my wife a scare and two is it didn't have any view of the river from inside. They do not say that it does but I assume it did. Again that was something I look for when staying along the river. My family would stay again but hopefully without the rain.
We loved the place! We plan to stay here again.
The location was very clean, just wonderfully furnished. Plenty of towels, nice selection of pots, pans, utensils, and place settings.
We were a little confused when we arrived and tried to enter the south side of the building, the rental door was on the north side of the building. (Sorry about that Christal).
There were no cheese curds others mentioned, but we did enjoy the wine!
We have friends and family in the area and this was a perfect meeting spot.
The weather was rainy so we didn't have any river time, but did make it to Effigy Mounds, The Driftless Center, and a lovely little winery (Madigan Winery).
Family getaway 2018
Large enough for our family get together. It was close to the places we wanted to visit. Nicely decorated. It had great appliances, but the cookware was awful. (Wish they had non stick).The floors needed a good scubbing. (We ruined a few pair of socks before we chose to just wear our shoes inside). We would stay again if those issues were addressed.
very clean and high end interior. plenty of room and the price was good.
If we get to NE Iowa again we would consider staying there again. Centrally located for all the sights and events we had planned.
Very clean, modern and as advertised.
I recommend this place if you need to accommodate a large group comfortably.
