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.

We stayed one night in the Decker House. Our room was on the first floor, and very comfortable. Unlike many rooms, this one was adequately lit, with a very comfortable queen bed, and lots of space. Breakfast the next morning was good if not outstanding, and our host and staff were very attentive to our needs. About the only drawback... More

We ended up at the Decker House almost by accident. As travelers across the Midwest from Toronto, we had plotted a course through Mason City, with the main attraction being a night at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Park Inn. Well, after confirming a room at the Park Inn over the phone in January 2014, we arrived after a 10-hour drive... More

I wanted to try something different on the latest work trip to MC. B&Bs are a different animal than the typical lodging. I was the only guest this time so I peeked around the other rooms which are all nice. For one person my room (Lily of the Valley) was just the right size. The bed was super comfortable. Towels...

Sally was so generous, flexible, and accommodating with our "musical room" situation for our party of 7!!! The food is lovingly prepared and delicious! Walked to the Mason City Brewery, the Quarry, and Chop Restaurant... great location!

Stayed at the Decker House overnight on a last minute trip to IC for a funeral. Wished I could have stayed a bit longer and taken better advantage of the lovely house. Sally generously accommodated some of my last minute logistics issues. The price of the Decker House was better than those of local chain motels! Breakfast was great and... More

A wonderful B&B and a wonderful hostess. Our one night stay in the midst of a hurried, cross-country drive left us wishing we could have stayed longer. Everything about this B&B was excellent. As a person with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities,) I am always on guard for triggers - exposure to room fresheners, scented cleaning products, laundry detergents, etc. No... More

My wife told me to give it as many +'s as possible. The room was clean and the shower was sparkling. The towels were luxurious (Jennifer Lopez) and the water was soft. The room was cozy. I wish we could have stayed more than one night!

A great innkeeper makes for a great stay, and Sally, whom I know only by her first name, because she's that personable, made our weekend visit everything we might want it to be. The Decker House is owned by a civic foundation, and she runs the inn for them. We were greeted warmly, she was helpful in every way, and... More
