Look no further than Fern and Buster's home, the Prairie Path Guest House. I've been to many B&B's, but never at such a home like, beautiful place. Fern and Buster treat you like family, and their place relaxes you as soon as you enter the drive. The whole area is wonderful, the people extremely welcoming and friendly. Fern's breakfast is...

My husband, Pat and I recently enjoyed a return visit to Prairie Path Guest House. We were very comfortable and had every amenity we could possibly hope for. Each morning we were treated to a gourmet breakfast. My husband is in love with Ferns cooking! Morning coffee was served on the upstairs porch where an early morning serenade was in... More

Fern and Buster were wonderful hosts. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Fern and Buster were sweet and very helpful (we arrived at 10 at night and they were so patient with us as they directed us in the dark to their place). Breakfast was fantastic -- fresh bacon, homemade french toast, great fruit. You could not ask for more... More

We stayed at Prairie Path Guest House over the 4th of July weekend and it was wonderful. Buster and Fern remind me so much of my Grandparents, they are warm, friendly, and welcoming. The rooms are full of fun knick knacks and antiques, yet clean and comfortable. The bathroom we used was huge, modern, and stocked with amenities. Fern has... More

My husband and I have stayed at Prarie Path many times as we have a boat at Lake Caroll and season passes to the nearby Timberlake Playhouse. We always feel at home the minute we arrive. The Innkeepers, Fern and Buster, are warm and friendly, extremely knowledgable about the region and helpful in planning your day. We have invited friends... More

Sometimes you just don't know what to expect from a Bed & Breakfast, so it is with great pleasure that I write this review. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, Buster and Fern were accommodating, friendly and just nice to be around. Their B&B is a very attractive piece of property, with a deck filled with...

The owners Buster and Fern and friendly and accomodating. The breakfast is ample and delicious. Morning coffee is waiting just outside your door. The area is beautiful and not far from Galena or Iowa. Highly recommended! It is like staying with your favorite grandparents.
