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

My husband and I arrived late (10:00pm) and were greeted by Doug offering us each a glass of wine. Nice Welcome! Our room, the William Painter rm was spacious and beautifully decorated. Each room has its own private bathroom. In the morning breakfast was served at 9:00. I really liked the idea of sitting down together at tables of four... More

We spent three nights at the Dug Road Inn in April. Doug, our B&B owner/greeter was wonderfully friendly, and very knowledgeable about the local area of Decorah, WI.

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

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay at the Dug Road Inn. We stumbled onto by chance and it was the best lodging choice we have made in some time.
