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. Steve and Nancy took us in and we fell in love with it immediately. So lovely decorated, from the Maureen Ohara suite, to the claw foot tub, and wonderful breakfast Steve made... More

Heavenly Habitat is an outstanding B&B and is your best choice for lodging in Winterset, Iowa. The rooms and common areas are decorated beautifully and the place is very comfortable. The company and conversation with Steve and Nancy makes you feel right at home and the breakfast was excellent. We had Steve's famous baked French toast with peaches, ham, sausage... More

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...

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

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
