This is a wonderful guest house next to the campus of Cornell College. For the price of a fancy motel room, we had a room that was bigger than our bedroom at home, with a private, enclosed porch that was just as big! We stayed in the Medary Room, which has two queen (or double) beds, a full bath, the porch and plenty of space. The porch is accessed through french doors that can be left open at night for the breeze, the soft rain, and the train whistles.
Breakfast is a full breakfast, cooked by the resident host, Mary. The house itself is large, with large common rooms available to the guests. The main street is within easy walking distance and the campus is right across the street.
If I were to travel to Central Iowa again, I would make Brackett House my base. It's within easy driving distance to many destinations in Central Iowa, and it will be the nicest place you stay anywhere in the state. I loved Brackett House!
