My wife and I stayed in the La Jolla suite. My wife peeked in some of the other rooms and thought this room was the best choice. It's very bright, updated, smelled nice, and had a large bathroom stocked with anything you might need. The owners were nice and thoughtful; they provided us rain jackets so we could comfortably venture... More

We just visited the Elkader Bed and Breakfast over the weekend. What a fabulous, beautiful house! Built in 1892, it has all the charm and beauty of that era. Mark and Brenda are friendly, fun hosts and the rooms are all gorgeous. My suggestion? For a little weekend get away, go stay there and explore the beautiful rolling hills, rivers,... More

We drove to Elkader, IA to see a play. We enjoy staying at B & B's and Elkader B & B was wonderful. Very convenient to downtown Elkader, walking distance to everything. The room was fantastic. We stayed in the Savannah Room with our own private porch. Very comfortable and plan to return again. The breakfast was to die for!... More

We stayed at the Elkader Bed and Breakfast during a trip across Iowa. The inn is lovely and the rooms were modern and very comfortable. We stayed in the LaJolla Suite which was a beautiful room with a comfy bed and very nice recently remodeled bathroom. Unfortunately we were only there one night, so we didn't get a chance to...

We helped my parents celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in Elkader and stayed at the Elkader Bed and Breakfast. The rooms were very nice and the beds were awesome. We enjoyed the community restaurants and shopping. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and we enjoyed visiting with them.

I really enjoyed our stay at the Elkader Bed & Breakfast. The building is so charming and it is obvious how much love and attention has gone into maintaining this beautiful historic home. Everything from the front porch swing to the stained glass windows is dripping with charm. My fiance and I stayed in the "Key West" room and we... More

Elkader Bed and Breakfast is Northeast Iowa's gem. Our stay there was very comfortable and relaxing. Brenda and Mark are wonderful people who make their guests feel like part of their family. From now on when we travel to Northeast Iowa, our home away from home will be Elkader Bed and Breakfast.

What can I say? Wonderful comes to mind. I could sit for hours and just admire the craftsmanship of the woodwork. With it's Victorian charn came all the modern conviences. The hosts, Brenda and Mark, made me feel like family. I travel nearly every week and typically stay in a Holiday Inn Express. They serve breakfast too, but not like... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Elkader B&B. We were in town visiting family, and this B&B was recommended to us. The room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated (we stayed in the Savannah Suite (watch out for that sun in the morning if you stay in that room... it comes in full force even with the blinds drawn)).
