“Rockstar Accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

What a gorgeous property. The new owners have gone above and beyond. You can tell these owners are experienced in the hotel/customer industry. Not only are the rooms fabulous and gorgeously decorated, but the customer service is over the top. You are made to be their top priority and that your stay is the best. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the location is prime and most of all your minutes away from a whole lot of fun in Okoboji.

We stayed at Vintage Block over the 4th of July weekend and were pleasantly surprised at all of the improvements that were made. The rooms have all been refurbished to make you feel like you are in a vintage lake home. It was clean and comfortable. There are lots of things for families to do including fire pits, grills, surrey bikes, and many games. The pool was awesome. The breakfast area and outdoor seating area were both really great too. Free breakfast. The hotel is in a perfect location -- close to lots of things including restaurants, shopping, Arnolds Park, golf courses. We rode our bikes to everything. The price of the room was very reasonable as well. We would definitely stay there again.

I was pleasantly surprised when we stayed the night here! The attention to detail at every level of this property was superb! The decor made you feel like you were at your own lake house. The rooms were clean and comfortable to stay in! Pool, fire pit area and grill not to leave out free breakfast in the a.m.! Close to everything: boat launch, restaurants, golf course! Fantastic in every way! Thank you :)

Abe's of Okoboji soon to be Vintage Block Inn and Suites is a great throwback in time. Mindy one of the new owners is fantastic. She and her partner are updating the facility with all types of amenities for families and children. We were there for a family wedding and it was great for no frills and getting back to the basics of life. The cost was very reasonable considering the time of year and the tourist season. I would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Go for the queen suites as you have more room and other amenities.

I didn't think it could get any better, but misty proved me wrong! Amazing in every aspect!! Love the new doors as well as the amazing staff. Great experience and would recommend it to anybody and everybody. I wish all places could live up to Abe's/Vintage Blocks amazingness.

Abe's ROCKS! My girlfriend and I stayed 4 nights last week, in celebration of a milestone birthday. The staff is AMAZING. Misty spoiled us! The location is perfect. The Inn itself is ridiculously cute and comfortable and homey. Our room was spotless. The beds are super comfy. The breakfast each morning was great.

LOVE ABE's! We WILL be back! ...can't wait to see it next summer!
