Perfect location in another sweet, sleepy downtown. Walkable to shopping and several great pubs and restaurants. I would not hesitate to call up Sally direct and stay in her spacious rooms and enjoy her delicious full-breakfasts! Honor bar in the basement is a nice touch too! And halls are already decked out for Christmas. Sweet.

Thank you so much! It is always great to hear from our guests. The Decker House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect location to stop, rest and rejuvenate on a cross country journey. We are glad you chose our hidden gem- Mason City!

We would highly recommend staying here. We stayed in the Iris room for one week. The house itself is beautiful, gorgeous decorations for Halloween. Really well kept and spotlessly clean. Our room was a perfect size for two people and our luggage. Very clean and comfortable. TV and hairdryer in room. The best thing about the decker house is Sally!...

What a welcoming quiet retreat. I chose this place in my hometown as something different from a hotel. The owner Sally was very nice. The Rose room was lovely with its uncovered veranda and the house so quiet. Had a nice walk to the library and the Meredith Wilson footbridge. Sally even allowed me to invite family to join me...

We stayed in the Gardenia Room and it met all our needs. The room was very clean and featured a queen bed dresser, a table, and a...

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at The Decker House. I feel like I just walked into a Ray Bradbury Dandelion Wine chapter. You step into the turn of the Century (1900) atmosphere. The people there are very friendly and my breakfast was excellent. The neighborhood it is situated in , brings home the feeling of running barefoot...

Great B&B. Excellent rooms, very comfortable, plenty of hot water, an oasis in an otherwise unremarkable city. Breakfast was very good, and the owner charming and attentive. Worth staying if you are in the area. Significantly better than surrounding hotels.

Stayed here for a wedding as part of a wedding party. It was beautiful, clean, very welcoming. The food was amazing! I love breakfast and this was the best breakfast I've ever had! The homemade French toast was delicious and the owner made us breakfast extra early on the day of the wedding.

This was a perfect spot to meet friends from a distance, to chat and to explore the community. We loved having the small, but very fine art museum 1 block away, and 2 fine restaurants also within walking distance. I was sorry we didn't have time to do the Frank Lloyd Wright tour or see Music Man Square but we...
