My Brother & I were looking for a point in Iowa to meet that would by approximately the same for both of us to travel. That point came to be Centerville, Iowa. I always go to Tripadvisor first to check out the reviews on many of the local establishments. When I read the reviews on "One of Kind", I saw... More

First of all, I consider myself middle-aged. I met my brother here for a weekend get away. For us it was a lot like going to visit our grandma for the weekend. Very nostalgic and quaint. Joyce is the owner and operator of this establishment, along with some part time help. She was such a great lady and we ended... More

We should have known better when the only place that still had rooms available was the "One of a Kind" B&B. In late spring we decided to have a family reunion at Lake Rathburn. We made numerous calls to all the lodging establishments within a 30 mile radius and the only places that still had rooms were the Continental Hotel... More

There are really two good places to stay in Centerville and we chose this B&B to kick off our weekend at Rathbun Lake. Wasn't sure what I was getting into but we were pleasantly surprised. I loved the gift shop and Tea Room on the first floor. We loved chatting with the owner about the history of Centerville, which is... More

If you love b&b's this place is in mainly it's original form and full of charm. Joyce is amazingly sweet and kind. The b&b is very affordable and breakfast both days was excellent! We would highly recommend a stay with One of a Kind! We'll be back to stay in some of the other rooms!

We all have that favorite family member we remember as a child. We don't know them well but always look forward to seeing them once a year because they make us feel so welcomed. That is what you get at this wonderful bed & breakfast. All the rooms in the house are decorated so wonderful. The food is definitely One... More

Rooms were just OK. Price high. Breakfast was nothing special and no choices. Have to climb several steps to get to room. Shower tub and curtains were not very clean. Located across from a bar and sometimes caused disruption in middle of night with people drinking too much. But the town is very small so not sure if other places... More

This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast in a wonderful small town, well worth a stay. However, several listings include a WRONG telephone number, so be sure the prefix listed is 641 and not 651.....or you'll be unable to reach them to book a room -- and you'll miss out on a wonderful experience! --Margie, Greenfield, Iowa

One of a Kind says it all. The Stuflebeems, Jack and Joyce, treat you like family and the home is very unique and has a truley most interesting history. This has been our third stay in the last 4 years and each time has been comforting and pleasant and difficult to leave. You feel like you are leaving home and... More
