It was relaxing, peaceful, comfortable, and just what we were looking for in a... More

My husband and I just returned from a weekend getaway to celebrate our 2 year anniversary and to get one last vacation in before baby. We found the QWL to be an outstanding choice for our getaway to Dubuque, IA - it was a perfect distance to travel from Southern/South-Eastern Wisconsin and the place was amazing.

I stayed for a couple of nights for some time to myself in a quiet beautiful area. Everything was so wonderful--the people, the rooms, the location, and breakfast! The innkeepers and owners were helpful letting me know how to get where I wanted to go. I visited the Mines of Spain during the day (also recommended!) And downtown Dubuque for... More

My husband and I stayed here during a weekend getaway to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We have stayed at quite a few B&B's, and we have enjoyed all of them, but the Quiet Walker Lodge has by far been our favorite so far! The property is absolutely beautiful! Quiet, remote, and surrounded by nature, we really enjoyed the scenery... More

We spent our first anniversary at Quiet Walker Lodge. It was a wonderful time. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. The innkeepers were polite, kind and gracious. We would definitely like to stay here again and would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in the Dubuque/Galena area.
