They built it.

Live out your baseball dreams just like Ray Kinsella.

The iconic set from the movie “Field of Dreams” was built on the century-old Lansing family farm in Dyersville, Iowa, back in 1989, and has since become a popular tourist attraction for movie buffs.

While some damage has been done to the field due to vandalizers who clearly hate baseball and dreams alike, the property is perfectly maintained for travelers who want to relive the glory days of the greatest of all Great American Sports.

Now, the owners of the farm are offering something even better to the movie fans by opening up the house for overnight stays.

Guests to want to opt in on the “Kinsella Experience” will not only stay in the house’s one bedroom upstairs, but also receive a “Field of Dreams” commemorative baseball, a bottle of wine plus two wine glasses and a picnic tablecloth, a DVD of the movie (with popcorn to enjoy it with), actor Dwier Brown’s (he played Kevin Costner’s dad) book, “If You Build It,” and a $25 gift card towards a breakfast at a local Dyersville country breakfast spot.

For anyone who is a huge fan of the movie, it’s the perfect opportunity to live out their fantasies of pretending they’re Kevin Costner for a night or two. Plus, the site is an excellent memento of movie history and a nice, quiet getaway for people exploring the Midwest.

Booking a stay at the house, however, can be pretty exclusive. Not only are available bookings fairly sparse through the spring, but a night’s stay can run two adult guests up to $2,200. We suggest movie lovers book further in advance for the best chance to grab a booking.
