Enjoy the feel of a bed and breakfast in our historic hotel. Our lovely hotel has a rich history! It was built in the 1860's as a hotel. Then transformed into the well-known Zuber's Dugout Restaurant and is now once again a 15 room hotel. Each guest room is tastefully decorated with a unique Iowa theme. All rooms include comfortable furniture, private bath, cable TV, and Internet. Many of the rooms have a small refrigerator and microwave. We also have a full-size refrigerator and microwave for guests to use in the Wagon Wheel Room. We offer a range of bed sizes - full, queen or king. The Wagon Wheel room is host to our complimentary hot buffet-style breakfast and check-in sweet treat! Guests are welcome to relax and enjoy the Wagon Wheel Room any time. We offer board games, TV, and a piano for your use and enjoyment.

We stayed in the Whitetail room. It was just as charming in person as in the pictures. Very clean, beds were well appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts and the afternoon sweet treats were amazing. You feel welcome and at home right away.

Thanks for your review. Glad you had a great stay with us, even though the Hawkeyes didn't play well. Staying with us hopefully makes the loss a little easier. Anyway, Thanks for your comments. Brian
