Look up Dyersville, Epworth, or Farley in western Dubuque County, Iowa. All small (Dyersville is the biggest at 4,000), all lazy and friendly. Some construction happening in each, but there is an easy commute to major growth areas in Peosta, Asbury, and Dubuque. All are surrounded by farms. Take a look. Good luck!

There are lots of little, lazy towns in Dallas County, which, paradoxically, is the fasted growing county in Iowa... so live in Adel, Minburn, Woodward, Perry, Dexter, etc. but be a stone's throw from all Des Moines has to offer, plus you gotta think your property values will be steady... at least!

Just grab a map, close your eyes and then point and odds are you'll get one.

Personally, I like Preston IA.

Jackson Co., near Illinois, Clinton IA, Maquoketa IA, and Dubuque, IA, Town of no more than 1000, just kinda sits on the top of the plateau before the river valley in eastern Iowa

You might want to ask the folks that live in these small towns. Try over at HeyIowa.com (http://www.heyiowa.com/forum - broken link)

My preference is Newton, Iowa.

You can probably get some sweet deals on decent houses there now that Maytag is closing shop.
