A really great experience for our first bed and breakfast. Linda was the best! So friendly and helpful. It felt like home. The English Ivy room was perfect with a huge private bathroom. The fresh baked brownies were addictive and breakfast was delicious. We may never stay in another hotel. Can[t wait to visit The Ivy House again!

We chose Ivy House for our annual girls weekend getaway to scrapbook. Linda could not have been more hospitable. The rooms are cozy and the beds very comfortable. We all had our own bathroom and the food was delicious! Linda even accommodated all of our many scrapbooking supplies and made space for us in the well-appointed living room. We cannot... More

We loved visiting the Ivy House. Enjoyed our visit with the Inn Keepers. We have a lot in common. Cozy, friendly, historical home, and clean. The fresh fruit in a waffle cone was good and pretty. Souffle and muffin were delicious. Certainly will visit again.

My wife and I wanted to get away for the night and we both immediately thought of the Ivy House. This made our fifth visit to this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. As always, our host, Linda, warmly greeted us and our stay was perfect. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, zucchini and a homemade... More

This was our second visit to the Ivy House and coming back was like returning home to see family and friends. We stayed 4 nights over Thanksgiving Holiday and everything was perfect. Linda, the Innkeeper is kind, friendly and oh so professional. The house is beautiful and impeccably maintained. We slept in the "English Ivy" room which is spacious and... More

The Ivy House is a beautiful B&B and we were warmly welcomed during this chilly Nov weekend. It was evident throughout our visit that the staff were there to take care of us. We were intrigued by the details within the home that were restored. Comfortable pillowtop bed and full pillows made for quality nights sleep. Breakfast made to our... More

My husband and I could not have been happier with The Ivy House Bed & Breakfast. The home was beautiful, wonderfully maintained and super clean. Breakfast both mornings was wonderful, as were the homemade goodies waiting for us upon our arrival. Linda, the proprietor, made sure we had everything we needed. She welcomed conversation but was also great about letting... More

When we walked up the front sidewalk to the door, we already knew. There's a kind of ambiance that one senses immediately. We arrived late and exhausted by a grueling trip through blinding rain and wind in AR and MO. How pleasant and beautiful did we find Ivy House and its proprietors Linda and Jim. They made us feel welcome... More
