Steve and Nancy really have something special. The Heavenly Habitat is a wonderful retreat from all that beckons to you at home. The room was comfortable and the decor was charming. The full shared kitchen and living areas were nice to relax in. The back patio is lovely as well as the front porch. Steve and Nancy are superb hosts... More

Lovely relaxing overnight in Winterset hosted by Steve and Nancy. Very warm and welcoming rooms and our hosts made great company at breakfast. Spent nearly 2 hours chatting and sharing stories. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asked. Hope to be back soon!
