Great B&B. Excellent rooms, very comfortable, plenty of hot water, an oasis in an otherwise unremarkable city. Breakfast was very good, and the owner charming and attentive. Worth staying if you are in the area. Significantly better than surrounding hotels.

Stayed here for a wedding as part of a wedding party. It was beautiful, clean, very welcoming. The food was amazing! I love breakfast and this was the best breakfast I've ever had! The homemade French toast was delicious and the owner made us breakfast extra early on the day of the wedding.

This was a perfect spot to meet friends from a distance, to chat and to explore the community. We loved having the small, but very fine art museum 1 block away, and 2 fine restaurants also within walking distance. I was sorry we didn't have time to do the Frank Lloyd Wright tour or see Music Man Square but we... More

We love staying at the Decker House! Sally the owner is a great cook & hostess. We go to Mason City frequently & prefer to stay here when available. This restored mansion is well kept, clean & cozy. Great buy especially for quality & incredible food & hospitality!

I would consider this more of an Inn then a true bed and breakfast. The accommodations were wonderful. We received a free upgrade to the Rose Room and I must say it is spacious and comfortable. The innkeeper was very cordial. If your travels take you to Mason City, this is the place to stay.

Had business to conduct in Mason City Iowa and thought to stay at a B&B instead of a hotel. Found Decker House on the web and also found that they were about $30 cheaper than a hotel! Called Sally and got the Iris room for the night. The house is a1890's with furniture and décor to match...Thought, "well hope the... More

Traveled for business and all the hotels were booked so decided to stay here. This was my first time in a bed and breakfast. The house was very grand and had a lot of character. The employee that greeted us was extremely nice. We were within walking distance of shopping and eating which was nice. I was disappointed with the... More

This is an old mansion that's been restored. Our room was great -- large and with a spotless and spacious attached bath. The bed was very comfortable. The hostess, Sally, was very welcoming, and the breakfast was quite good.

This was an excellent find in Mason City. The location was exceptional - we walked to every place we wanted to see. The room was comfortable and the breakfast delicious. A very welcoming and helpful B&B. A perfect place to spend our anniversary.
