Stayed at Dug Road Inn in July while taking a class with friends. Our room was comfortable and spotless. The breakfasts were special - gourmet food with gracious service. The young, enthusiastic hosts accommodated all our requests. I plan to return with my husband who ordinarily isn't a fan of B&Bs. He will like this place.

We had a very nice visit. Owners are sweet, friendly and doing a great job. We had excellent breakfasts, tasty, fresh and unexpected choices. Lots of nice touches like a glass of wine at check in, cozy bathrobes, big front porch to hang out on. Also a great location with an easy walk to lots if attractions.

We can't heap enough praise. Micah and Corinna recently took over the Dug Road Inn, as the previous owners retired, and they are dedicated to continuing a tradition of excellence. We were a little late arriving but Micah was waiting for us and happily welcomed us with a glass of wine. We had the Painter room on the first floor... More

We were so pleased with our stay at the Dug Road Inn! Everything about it was just great! The friendly hosts, the beautiful room and the delicious breakfast made it a perfect place for us to stay in Decorah! Their location is ideal for visiting the quaint downtown area. We will be repeat guests to the Dug Road Inn!

We spent two nights, staying in the Elizabeth Day room. Doug greeted us warmly on arrival and joined us in a glass of wine on the huge front porch after we were settled. The room was quite comfortable. The breakfast was truly outstanding, 3 courses that include dessert! We will definitely be back!

We stayed in the Elizabeth Day room, just off the entrance on the main floor. Very comfortable bed and so many nice touches that made us feel comfortable. Heated tile floors in the bathroom, extra blankets, robes, nice sitting table, and plenty of space to move around. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the bathroom was very clean (great water... More

Dug Road Inn is the best B&B we've stayed in. This is a classy inn, serving a gourmet breakfast. Each room is decorated beautifully to provide a unique feeling. We've stayed in 3 of their 5 rooms. We like the 2 rooms downstairs: Painter & Elizabeth Day. While staying at the Dug Road Inn, we can walk around downtown Decorah... More

Overall, when I travel, I don't stay at B&Bs, although over time, I've stayed at several for various reasons. My husband and I stayed here for a weekend away without our child.

My husband and I escaped overnight to Decorah, IA. We wanted to stay near downtown so we could truly enjoy the feel of the town. We looked at many places, but this had the most ambiance, great location and a fabulous 3-course breakfast. Gorgeous place, built in 1860. The owner, Doug is a well-experienced, professional host.
