I always think that the marker of a good B&B is the nature of the hospitality you receive, the sort that you cannot find in the larger hotels. Steve and Nancy deliver this perfectly in this idilic retreat. The two guest bedrooms offer a very comfortable stay, and we found both the bedroom and the common kitchen and living area... More

What a great find! Steve spent lots of time with us, sharing stories and helping us with restaurants, etc. The whole place was ours for the night -- a bedroom, a huge living room, dining room, and kitchen, and a beautiful deck to enjoy the evening on. Breakfast was more than we could eat and delicious. We will definitely be... More

My girlfriend and I wrapped up a weeklong vacation in the Upper Midwest and made reservations at HH on our last night before heading home. What a fabulous place, wished we had stayed longer!

If you want to be "born again," this is the place to stay. What a wonderful homey place. Fantastic hosts, Steve and Nancy, make you feel special, and right at home. The Bed and Breakfast was formerly a church, and is clean and expertly decorated. (Even the ladder in the hallway holding photos) which I am sure was really Steve's... More

Steve and Nancy were very welcoming. Breakfast was great as well as the conversation. The space was very clean and nicely decorated. A living and dining room are available as well as a kitchen that is separate from the innkeepers home. It was truly a home away from home!

Such a unique beautiful Bed & Breakfast...my boyfriend Joseph took me to see the bridges of Madison county and we stumbled in to Heavely Habitat almost by accident.

We recently had the opportunity to stay here at Heavenly Habitat in Winterset Iowa, and what a truly lovely place it is to stay. The rooms and living areas are very beautifully done, with a nice space to go sit & relax, with opportunities to use a guest kitchen if needed. Everything was spotless. We could not have asked for...
