“Visit to Stauer House summer 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We flew to Prairie du Chien airport in August. Donna came and picked us up from the airport, with her grandson in the carseat! She made us feel right at home. I love the laid-back feel at McGregor. We felt very welcomed there. We didn't need to get keys for the door or have to worry about what time we came in, how wonderful! And the house is beautiful. The breakfast was fabulous (and filling), and there were many interesting guests to meet and chat with. We definitely would recommend it. There was no worry about deposits, that sort of thing. Donna said "just let me know when you arrive at the airport".

Room Tip: Some rooms have en suite bathrooms. Others have a reserved bathroom. Ours had a clawfoot tub, ju...

Visited McGregor Iowa this week and stayed at the Stauer House. It was a terrific experience. The house and rooms were immaculate and cozy. Donna (Owner) made us feel right at home. Awakened by the smell of bacon from the kitchen! The breakfast was great! Pancakes, bacon, fruit, eggs, coffee cake!

We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The Rammage Suite is two tooms....VERY comfortable!

This is exactly what a B&B should be. Donna is a great hostess ! Breakfast in the morning was wonderful. It is about a 6 block walk to the downtown area where all the restaurants and shops are. Very safe to walk around.

Room Tip: There are 2 suites that don't have bathroom in the room. But they are just down the hall and rob...

We were taking a motorcycle trip in late June with my wife's sister and her husband to Prairie Du Chien. We had planned on staying at one of the local hotels, but we couldn't find a room as everything was booked due to a fishing tournament. We had never stayed at a B&B before but decided to try it instead of cancelling the trip. Our stay at the Stauer House was wonderful. The rooms were pleasant and very comfortable. Donna went out of her way to make sure that every detail was taken care of and that our stay was memorable. After supper at one of the local restaurants we sat out on the porch and relaxed. At breakfast we were able to see all of the work that had been done to restore the house and bring it to it's present state.

Room Tip: We had two couples so we rented the Ramage Suite with the sitting room so we had a place to gather a...

Having visited McGregor before, we dediced to try another B&B. We used the internet and Trip Advisor to find what we were looking for. We were not disappiointed. Donna, the owner, invited us to our room and gave us the history of this lovely, restored Inn. Our room was tidy and clean with it's own bathroom. It was extrememly hot that day, but we had great airconditioning in our room. Our breakfast in the morning was delicious with many choices. We were well fed. We will go back again.

Room Tip: All the rooms upstairs are good. Since it is at the end of town, there is little traffic to worry a...

Decided to stay in McGregor while visiting Prairie du Chien, Stauer House proved a cool and comfortable abode during a record heat wave--the AC did not falter. While our room was small it was quite clean and nicely furnished with some antique or reproduction pieces, the host was accommodating, and the hot breakfast was varied, unlike the continental style one finds in most B and Bs these days. It was like staying in someone's home; there is a three generation family,including a friendly dog, sharing the house with the paying guests--very down to earth.

Room Tip: The "Maid's Room" billed as a deluxe queen as a bit small, with a tiny bathroom. If yo...

We had a wonderful stay at the Stauer House this last weekend. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Donna was a wonderful hostess. We got there late and had to go out to eat at a restaurant before the kitchen closed so she was very understanding and quickly showed us our room and bathroom so we could join our friends. Furthermore, I'm allergic to dairy, wheat and corn and she went way above and beyond making a great breakfast with tons of food that even I could eat. Aside from that, the place is restored beautifully, even to the last detail. We were very impressed. Lastly, the only reason I gave it a 4 on location was because it was situated at the end of main street which was really no big deal. It takes about 5 minutes or so to walk to the other end so it didn't bother us a bit and we got to take a nice walk down the street and get a little bit of a sense of this cute town. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others!
