We were visiting relatives in this beautiful part of Iowa and were fortunate to make reservations at the Green Leaf Place. I've done a great deal of traveling for business and pleasure over the years and the Green Leaf is everything that a B & B should be. The home itself is stunning. I'm an architectural historian, and it was a treat to see this grand 1912 house so well maintained and lovingly cared for. Just seeing the extraordinary tiger oak woodwork in the entry way was enough to raise my pulse rate! Our rooms were relaxing, romantic, and comfortable and the Mishlers couldn't have been more perfect hosts. When our car developed a flat tire, Gary helped inflate it for us and gave us assistance in getting on our way to a reputable local garage. Our breakfast at their local coffee shop, "The Oasis" was delicious and above and beyond what we expected in terms of quality and quantity. The coffee is great and Val's peanut butter cookies were the best I've had since my childhood! My wife and I love traveling in Iowa and we're already thinking of another trip there next spring. No points for guessing where we'll be staying when we travel to this part of the state again -- many thanks Val and Gary!
