Marsh House is a beautiful Queen Anne Style Victorian home situated in a quiet Grinnell neighborhood. The inn is tastefully appointed with period antiques throughout. Beautiful stainglass. Our breakfast was fantastic, served upon vintage china. Our bedroom was spacious, with a very comfortable bed and all of the amenities. Conversations with Linda and JR (the owners) were informative and delightful.... More

As sometimes happens with many houses built in the 19th century, his residence fell into disrepair despite the best wishes of its occupants. About 18 years ago, restoration of this house became a personal project of Linda and James. In 3 large binders,... More

We travel quite a bit, both domestically and internationally. We are not Bed & Breakfast people; in fact, we usually prefer the reliable quality and high-level service of a 4 or 5 star hotel when we travel. However, there is no hotel, motel or B&B that we enjoy as much, or that we would rate more highly, than the Marsh... More

No, I'm not a relative or friend. My wife and I spent a splendid night at Marsh House. The owner's husband and sons' rescued a neglected old house and brought it back to luxurious grandeur. Linda, the owner, was friendly and accommodating through out our stay. Our room was impeccable, the bed very comfortable and the decor spectacular. She served... More

My husband and I stayed at the Marsh House for a Grinnell reunion, and we could not have been more pleased with this B&B. The owners Linda and Jim take care to ensure that all of the extra touches are in place -- from the meticulously selected wall papers to the extravagant furnishings to the comfortable beds and delicious breakfasts...

Linda and Jim Paulson I created a b&b that is beautiful yet comfortable. I loved it from my first visit when I dropped my son off as a freshman at Grinnell, and stayed there many times after that. I loved being there so much, I rented the entire house for graduation weekend and my entire family agreed it was a... More

Linda Paulson, the owner/manager/hostess of Marsh House runs this wonderful B and B with style and a personal touch. The house is an antique collection that is arranged in a way that immediately made me feel totally at home. The rooms are very comfortable, the house is quiet, the other guests are ALWAYS interesting, and Linda and Jim host one... More

Just spent 3 days at the Marsh House.We have stayed at many B&B over the years and this was the best one yet. The house is beautiful and almost like staying in a museum. (the website pictures do not do it justice). We tend to be picky about accommodations but these were immaculate, extremely comfortable and above anything we expected.... More
