We stayed 1 night here in early June. This B&B is a work in process - one that will probably take years. But it is an amazing old house that is completely renovated downstairs, with obvious work left to do in the one guest bedroom and the house exterior. This was not a problem for us, however, as everything worked... More

We drove a 4300 mile loop from AZ to OH and back. We decided to use more B&B places to stay to expand the quality of our experience beyond the usual, predictable and comfortable Hampton Inns that we usually choose. We were searching for B&B's that might have a piano and this one popped up. But this is not only... More

As a B&B, this is still a work in progress. There is major construction going on outside and inside, but don't be deterred by this. Someday, this could be the showcase B&B in Iowa. The house is quite old and huge. Roger, who is a delightful guy, has filled it with antiques and beautiful artwork. To be fair, I have... More

We stayed just one night here because everything in town was sold out. We were so pleasantly surprised at the neat interior of the house (Victorian and antiquey), and most of all, Roger's superb preparation of filet mignon meal for our dinner (at $29, several courses and a huge steak!). Roger is chatty and friendly and quite knowledgeable about the... More

When my husband and I first arrived, I wondered what we were getting ourselves into. The exterior of SF Martin house is a work in process - but upon going inside I felt like I was stepping back in time to the 1800's. The house is filled with antiques of all kinds. Roger is the "ultimate" host!! The breakfasts served... More

We were married here in 2011 and returned for our one year anniversary in 2012. We had a wonderful time during our stay. Roger and his staff are wonderful! The S.F. Martin House has everything we were wanting....delicious steak dinner, wonderful breakfast and cozy comfortable room. We are looking forward to returning this year and every year after. Roger has...

My wife and I returned to the S.F. Martin House for the fourth time recently, because the service and food is consistently excellent.. You couldn't find a more cogenial host than Roger, and you won't find a better Chef than Roger. We will return again and again.

The service was terrific along with the food. Was traveling with my best friend and she was very impressed. Was within walking distance to everything. Will try the other Atlantic B&Bs to compare on my next trip through.

Found this bed and breakfast a few years ago and this has become a favorite of my wife and I ever since. The food is absolutely fantastic and the owner/host gives you all the attention you deserve. Haven't stayed overnight but have seen the rooms and it looks like it would make for a great get-away. The restaurant area has... More

I only came to Atlantic when my truck broke down on the Interstate. My husband (who was still at home) found this B&B because it was close to several auto repair shops and we knew I could drive there before my truck completely died. My husband called the owner while I limped into town. Though there were no guests booked... More
