I have a lot of family in town but as is true for many young healthy families, they grow and grow and eventually their houses run out of space for extended family. I had stayed at the Decker House in the past under the previous management and the experience just gets better and better. Sally is hands down the best...

Centrally located to several downtown activities. For us Floridians the exploring was limited due to the cold winter weather. We still ventured out to the local brewery a couple blocks away. Loved the holiday decor of the house. We made use of the gathering area in the living room and played some cards with family who lives nearby. Big thank...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Despite the winter weather, guests can still enjoy a great getaway! Even if you can't get your car out of the driveway, chef owned restaurants, bars and coffee shops are just a block away. We even have snow shoes you can borrow to get there! Come again- winter, summer, spring or fall!...

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...

My wife and I have a tradition of staying at a bed and breakfast to celebrate our wedding anniversary weekend. We decided to stay at the Decker House Bed and Breakfast this year.

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.
