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

Our family rented out the entire Inn during a recent family wedding. We enjoyed our entire time there! Doug is an excellent host and provided answers to any of our questions. The breakfast is excellent! I had never heard of a 3-course breakfast until staying at the Dug Road Inn, but each course was wonderful. I would highly recommend this... More

Dug Road Inn has a gorgeous, very large, yet well designed for a "cozy" feeling, front porch. I mention this as it plays a large role in your stay at this remarkable Bed & Breakfast. The "Staff", Doug, Shirleen, and Julie have taken the business of a Bed & Breakfast and escalated it to a true art form. Julie, the... More

A peaceful mansion with welcoming and helpful hosts. Our room was restful, comfortable, elegant without being fussy. Breakfast was scrumptious and so well presented that it looked like they had employed an artist along with a chef! Would have loved to linger on the wide porch but it was much too cold in February. However, would have loved to utilize... More
