Wonderful experience. We stayed Friday/Sat May 15/16 and it was a quiet weekend and we were the only guests. Doug met us and showed us the house and got us oriented to the area. Breakfasts were 3 course, filling, and delicious. Would definitely stay again.

I have only stayed here once, but I wish it will be many more! The house itself is very cute, and the couple who own and run it are very nice! They were very kind to us as we arrived, my mother and my great aunt and her friend. The bedrooms are very spacious, and have water sitting on each... More

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Dug Road Inn. It's a lovely home with a great front porch overlooking the small town of Decorah. We walked everywhere from there. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. We both enjoyed the more modern, less fussy look and feel, compared to Victorian houses. Breakfast was very good and... More
