During our recent visit to Burlington, Iowa, we had the good fortune to stay at the Squirrel's Nest Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Penthouse and had a wonderful view of the Mississippi River. Every item served to us at breakfast was gourmet. Our hosts were charming and we were very comfortable. I wholeheartedly endorse the Squirrel's Nest Bed... More

While traveling for business I needed a place to stay in eastern Iowa and quickly used the trip adviser app and found this place with high marks in Burlington. What a find. I try to stay in B&B's as much as possible in my travels. After 34 years in hundreds of different inns from Cape Cod, Mass. to Sequim, Washington,... More

The Squirrel's Nest B&B is amazing with its wonderful view of the Mississippi River, the warm friendliness of the owners, and the rich history of the home and the town of Burlington. Inez and David welcomed us in and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed the private penthouse suite that includes an amazing view of the river. We... More

When describing the wonderful experience at staying at the Squirrel's Nest I can only repeat what other guests have raved about and it is all true. The suite and it's view, the incredible breakfast and the kind and gracious hospitality that Inez and David show are truly special. This is one B&B that deserves a third B as the best.

We wanted to do something special for our 5th wedding anniversary so we decided to take Amtrak from Omaha to Burlington and stay at a B&B. When we chose the Squirrel's Nest we didn't know what to expect, but when we were greeted at the station by Inez we knew this was not going to an ordinary weekend. Inez and... More

From the moment we arrived the atmosphere was warm, caring, intimate and romantic! My partner and I felt totally comfortable, welcome and at ease. Inez and David were the most wonderful hosts anyone could ever wish to have. The breakfasts were amazing and beautiful. Inez took my unique dietary quirks into account as well. But the greatest part for us... More

Upon arrival to the Squirrels Nest, Inez was very friendly and open arms, showed us around their home along with taking us to our room, which we stayed in the Penthouse! Completely BLOWN away. The photos do not justice for this room. It was open and airy, there was a bathroom, shower, Jacuzzi tub, a FANTASTIC view of the River!... More

You can get here from Chicago via plane or train, and it is worth it! The penthouse suite is very nice and relaxing. You have your own balcony with fantastic views of the sunrise, your own whirlpool tub, and squirrel decorations all around :) Breakfast was excellent in the morning too. If you are looking to get out of the... More
