We loved our 2 days with Gary and Clarise! What a charming couple who went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Not only was the breakfast outstanding both mornings, but they were so friendly and playful with our 4 year old daughter who was craving attention after days in the car. Our room with it's "secret...

We stayed at Glidden's B&B when we were in town for a wedding. Gary and Clarice were great hosts and the two breakfasts were amazing. The view from thier home looks like a Grant Wood painting. Thank you for making our time in Denison so wonderful.

We couldn't have asked for more. A hotel in town would never have been enough for our group of 17. We all stayed together, played cards, sat around the fire pit, had coffee on the patio and watched the sun come up. Then another 20+ family members joined us for an afternoon of visiting and reminiscing. Clarice was a perfect... More

I stayed for a week because I was in Denison for business. The scenery is beautiful. The host and hostess are great people. This is a modern home that was intended to be used as a B&B and it was very well planned. The breakfast are unique, delicious, and you won't leave hungry. I can only hope I get out... More

A recent Board meeting for an organization I belong to was held at this property. The hosts were amazing! The service was first class. The food was to die for. The view from our meeting room was breathtaking. It made the meeting (which is usually boring as are most Board meetings) a most pleasurable experience. The rooms are comfortable and... More

If you are driving through Western Iowa make the effort to stay with Clarise Glidden. Her B & B is south of Denison (Highway 30) a mile or two, but it is worth it. A home with great views and a lovely hostess. The best french toast ever -coconut crusted! She made 4 little kids and 4 adults feel like... More
