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

At The Decker House Bed and Breakfast we take much pride in providing fresh, creative and delicious food to our guests on a daily basis. While we try to please everyone, clearly it is not always possible. We rotate our menu daily ,serving savory egg dishes one day and sweeter dishes the next, so that our guests staying multiple days... 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.

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!
