The location on the bank of the Mississippi River affords a front row seat for the parade of barge and boat traffic. Sharon, the manager, prepared delicious breakfasts, regaled us with local lore, and keeps the Castle in great repair and immaculately clean. The house is large allowing people to spread out for quiet time, or stick around for interesting... More

This spacious beautiful comfortable home provided excellent accommodation in Iowa’s only Island City. Our rooms were clean and generously sized with picture postcard views across the Mississippi. Our host, Sharon was very welcoming and immediately made us feel at home. Breakfast exceeded expectations with lashings of bacon and French toast and fruit parfait! And all beautifully presented. Free wifi was... More

I LOVE staying in B&Bs. I enjoy it so much better than motel rooms. We also got lucky & enjoyed the other guests. We had plans to visit friends in Clinton. Checked the internet & found The Castle. Sharon was great . Never found a place & owner more trusting & casual. I didn't realize it was a shared bathroom... More

Looking through our list of Iowa B&B's we found Castle Bed and Breakfast in Sabula, Iowa. We looked on our Iowa map to find where Sabula was located. It was on the Mississippi River which is just what we were looking for. I made a call to see if we could get a room for one night and was glad... More

We stayed here on Sept. 6th and liked it so much we stayed again on the 7th. Took a last minute trip on the Harley and Sabula is a great spot to start and end a great ride up and down the mighty Mississippi. Sharon and John are very welcoming. Sharon makes AWESOME breakfast and was beyond accommodating. Enjoyed getting... More

We made reservations pretty late for a holiday weekend, wasn't sure what we would find. What we found at the Castle was immaculate rooms, beautiful yard and a lovely view of the Mississippi. Sharon the owner could not be nicer or friendlier. I was a little worried about not having a private bath, have always avoided this, but again, absolutely... More

What a great find! Sharon is a welcoming hostess [even going so far as to let me use the laundry facilities]; sat and talked and helped me plan my itinerary for the day -- and pointed me in directions I wouldn't have thought of. Fantastic location!

I echo all the positives in other reviews. The Castle is spotless, comfortable,has a perfect river view, and Sharon is the most engaging hostess who knows all about the surrounding area. Plus, her breakfasts are GREAT!

What a great place -and- a great deal! We stayed in "The King" suite for $90 (incl a good breakfast). Was bigger than any normal hotel room. Located right across the street from the Mississippi River, you can sit on the screened-in porch and watch the river traffic. We were there in October, so Sharon, the owner, had the entire... More

The Castle is a hidden treasure. Sharon, the inkeeoer makes the stay a wonderful experience! I love to sit on the porch, sipping a glass of wine, watching the Mississippi roll by. It is also a great value!!
