Stayed here because we wanted to go to the Walnut Antique Show. Much cheaper than any other accommodations you could find within 50 miles of Walnut, Iowa on Father's Day weekend. The owners, Rob and Kim are the very best people you would ever expect to find at a B&B. Our room was very comfortable, the owners fun to talk... More

We have traveled quite a bit, and stayed at several bed and breakfasts. This was by far the most disappointing. We reserved a room with 2 beds, verified by email. When we arrived they were unsure that we had a reservation. They put us in a room attached to their garage, with one bed and a futon. The grounds needed... More

We stayed in the log cabin on New Year's eve. The owners had the fire place lit, dinner for us as ordered, and a healthy breakfast. They even found a Yahtzee game for us. We had good conversation, a few laughs, a little competition, and a relaxing time in our room. The log cabin is attached to the house (actually... More

If you are looking for a country retreat then this is the place for you. We found the innkeepers very nice and more than willing to do anything to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are quaint and clean and the food is awesome. Sitting out on the patio with a fire was a great way to relax. We enjoyed... More

We would like to thank you for leaving a review on Trip Advisor. We are very sorry that our place was not all that you expected. The log cabin was built in 1850 and moved to this location in 1880, making it 162 years old. We always make our guests aware of the antique rustic nature of the old log... More

It was pure hell. The so called log cabin is attached to the main house kitchen. The door does not lock. The floorboards are rotted through. The toilet runs and leaks. The window is broken. Every window cell and corner is covered in dead bugs. The Jacuzzi suites??? well first off they are located in a separate pole barn, Yes,... More

We are very sorry to hear of your disappointment with Big Grove. We realize that is it not a place for everyone. The caption displayed here on trip advisor states that the cabin in hidden within the walls of the house and not a separate structure and that the tub is an antique galvanized steel tub like you would see...
