The Heavenly Habitat provides a very relaxing retreat. The rooms are comfortable, clean, quiet and decorated beautifully. The breakfasts are amazing! Winterset is a beautiful little town with much to see including the John Wayne museum and the bridges of Madison County. Topping it off with a wonderful stay at this B & B made for a great get away.

Steve & Nancy were wonderful hosts, and served a great breakfast each of our two night stay. The converted old church is done beautifully and very well maintained. Don't be frightened by it formally be a church, you can hardly tell other than some selective pieces saved to keep some history alive on the property. The location couldn't be better... More
