All the reviews by previous guests are absolutely true. It was truly a "heavenly" experience and like others, so surprised by the feeling of being at home and spacious accommodations. Breakfast served was as if we were in an upscale restaurant. I am typically not a waffle lover, but the Belgian waffles with fresh fruit were the best I've ever... More

Where to even start? I had an extended stay in Winterset and lucked into this wonderful B and B and was just blown away. It exceeded all my expectations. First of all, the owners are wonderful people and make you feel so at home in their lovely place. The accommodations are wonderfulo and everything is beautifully decorated. You have a... More

Had a great and relaxing time. Steve and Nancy are perfect hosts and the B &B is comfortable. quiet and most accommodating. Will definitely return in the fall either this year or next to see the Bridges and hopefully the completed John Wayne Museum. While in town, strongly recommend the North Side Cafe, provided you are still hungry after the... More

Clean, quiet, well built. They didnt try to cram too many rooms into space. Good cooked breakfast. Not frozen pre fab food. Very nice owners. Available when we neeeded them. But let us do our own thing. Very accomodating. Nice town. Fair priced. Great history of the building.

A beautiful and homey setting. Very clean. Friendly owners. Full kitchen where we cooked dinner and ate a meal. Also an awesome bathtub for a relaxing bubble bath!! If I find myself back in Winterset I will definitely be staying again.

Super clean, affordable, and private accommodations. This isn't your typical B&B! Each room is attached to its own personal bath; there is also an amazing claw foot tub available to soak in with your choice of complimentary bubble bath. Not only was the location, room, and price a score, we fell in love with the owners. Being a "younger couple"... More

Heavenly Habitat was previously a church which has been converted to a bed and breakfast. The owners have done an excellent job and the rooms are attractively decorated with every guest requirement thought of. A bonus is the guest lounge and kitchen which makes it perfect for a stay of a few days. Steve and Nancy are helpful and informative... More

Steve was a great host for my short (1 night) business stay. I stayed in the Maureen O'Hara room. Comfy bed and very clean. Breakfast was a delicious rose shaped waffle, fruit and poached eggs. This location is very close to the center of this quaint town. I would definitely stay here again should business or pleasure bring me to... More

Nancy and Steve are gracious hosts that made us feel like family. We stayed here for 3 nights. The people of Winterset, Iowa are nice, knowledgeable and helpful . They are proud of where they live. Birth place of John Wayne and the filming of "The Bridges of Madison County". Nancy and Steve turned this church into a beautiful Bed... More

What a delight to spend four nights in the former St. Paul Lutheran Church building. This is where my granddaughter was baptized and it was with her that I enjoyed my stay at what is now called Heavenly Habitat. The two guest rooms are comfortable and charming, decorated with antiques and special touches that let you know you are in... More
