This is a wonder bed and breakfast to stay at. Rita our hostess made an excellent breakfast for us. She was very accommodating and gave us a wonderful history of the house. Great place to stay instead of a hotel.

If you like really old houses and history you may enjoy staying here. Rita, the hostess and proprietor, was helpful and friendly, and served a delicious breakfast of buttermilk pancakes with strawberries and blueberries, bacon, juice, and milk. She made a special trip to the store for milk when she learned we are not coffee drinkers. The bedroom are decorated... More

Beautiful house and setting. Our room was spacious and sunny, with a beautiful roomy bathroom. Our stay there added greatly to the enjoyment of our week-end in Iowa Falls. Our hostess was lovely and accommodating, the breakfast superb, and everything super clean.

I would highly recommend this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. We actually rented the entire house for our family (12 of us) to celebrate a birthday. The owner, Rita, did everything possible to make us comfortable. We so appreciated her taking care of the details and making us feel so at home. The historical home is situated on a hill overlooking... More

Lovely old Victorian home that's been refurbished to original beauty. It's a treat just walking through the house. The whole experience was wonderful. Bedroom very comfy with nice bath. Breakfast to die for. (Owner makes the BEST pancakes!)

Thank you! We are so happy to have our guests come and enjoy the comfort of our accommodations, the interesting features and events in our small town, and to get away from it all! We'll keep cranking out those home made pancakes as long as there are guests who want to enjoy them! Hope to see you again soon! More

Nice historic home, enjoyed the second floor balcony off library in the evening. Saw hummingbirds, gold finches, and one deer in the wildlife department, pretty river across street is a great plus on this. Enjoyed the tallboy type bed in river view room. Host is charming, accommodating, and breakfast was nice as well (unlike some other B &B's).

My entire family stayed at River's Bend over the Fourth of July. Each room was unique and my son and daughter-in-law really enjoyed the Bliss Suite. It is clean and the architecture and decor are gorgeous. The food was amazing and the owner was very accommodating. We will definitely have family and friends stay again soon.
