Description

The grand Victorian estate sits amidst gardens and ponds in the heart of the Iowa Great Lakes. Guests strolling along the path may be treated to the songs of bullfrogs, the impressive nests of osprey, or deer frolicking in the oak grove. Each of the 11 guest rooms boasts a king or queen bed, romantic fireplace, flat screen television, microwave, and refrigerator; many rooms feature a whirlpool tub and a veranda or patio. Guests can become part of the family as they enjoy a gourmet continental breakfast each morning; the coffee is a special roast provided by the innkeeper’s cousin and family stories can be told about the featured vintage family recipes. The inn is the perfect home base for visiting nearby wineries, museums, antique shops, and theaters.

Romantic Interest

Guests sitting out on the verandas overlooking the grounds will find a very romantic and peaceful environment, broken only by the waterfall in the pond, or bird calls from the wetlands.
