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

If you're looking for a romantic getaway destination this is the place. A beautiful log cabin style lodge nestled in the hills of eastern Iowa. The property is well maintained with some great views and surrounded by a timber. Lots of wildlife to see. We even seen some black squirrels. The room was very comfortable and as clean as could...

What a great experience! My husband and I were greeted by Kathy when we pulled up to the lodge. She gave us a tour of lodge, introduced us to her husband Phil (our other host) and walked us to our room. Our room was clean, very charming and a perfect way to relax for a couple of days.

A stay at this lodge made for a romantic and private weekend in the quiet of nature. Kathy made the reservation process simple with no stress and Phil and Kathy were both wonderful hosts. The lodge is located in the middle of nature and offers seating outside and places for walks. On one evening, we ordered dinner to go at... More

My husband is the "outdoor" type, but I wanted a romantic getaway for our anniversary. When I mentioned a B&B, he turned up his nose, but QWL was just the place for us! Great, quiet surroundings, wonderful rooms, and the innkeepers were exceptional. I could have stayed longer, and definitely will return. Eating breakfast on the deck during the beautiful... More
