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. Thank you to owners... More

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.

We stayed here for three nights and had a great time. The breakfasts were terrific all three mornings and very filling. It was a very romantic stay and I'd love to go back sometime. It was very quiet and secluded with well groomed grounds. We stayed in the Secret Garden room which was nice and peaceful. I would highly recommend... More

Concierge level of service at a B&B is outstanding. We were greeted by the Innkeepers as soon as we got out of our car, and were given a tour of the grounds and shown our room. We stayed in the room called the "Secret Garden", which was so peaceful and relaxing, and had several unique features. The food served at... More

We just came home today from a lovely weekend stay at QWL. I usually do not write reviews unless I feel that something is exceptional and I would describe our experience as nothing short of exceptional. We were greeted by the owner when we arrived on Friday who showed us around and to our room. We stayed in the Sedona... More

Second time we have been at the Quiet Walker Lodge. Once in February and now in October. We will return again! We have to see spring and summer. Not a bad room on the property! Breakfast was a treat; try and guess the secret ingredient in the quiche. We rode our motorcycle and experienced some weather problems while in route.... More

We were greeted by Kathy and her husband as soon as we stepped out of the car. She gave us a tour of the place, which is just beautiful. It's casual, so you feel relaxed and "right at home" away from home. We had a fire right outside the Lodge both nights. Enjoyed the hot tub in our room. Kathy... More
