Central location in a charming town. Our host, Steve, very warm and friendly; really enjoys being with his guests and providing them with helpful information about Winterset; also cooked an excellent and filling breakfast featuring eggs, sausage, ham, and a baked French toast topped with peaches. While here be sure to visit the birthplace of John Wayne, the lovely and... More

We so enjoyed our stay at Heavenly Habitat. We arrived late after dropping our son off for his freshman year at Iowa State University but we were welcomed warmly by Steve and Nancy even though it was late! We loved our room and it was decorated beautifully ... I loved the light fixtures! The bathroom was quite large. The common... More

We made last minute plans to go to a 1st birthday party and the Iowa State Fair and were lucky enough to get a room at Heavenly Habitat for our 2-night stay! Very clean and comfortable. Great location. The breakfasts are the best we've ever had at a B&B!! The apple cinnamon baked French toast and the Belgian waffles were... More

Wifey and I wanted to visit the Bridges of Madison County and noted the reviews for Heavenly Habitat were worth a try. We are glad we did. The hosts were very laid back and accommodating while providing a nicely furnished room, separate bath, living area, kitchen, front porch and back porch in a building that was part of a church....

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

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
