We had a terrific time. Steve and Nancy were wonderful hosts, the accommodations were excellent and the location to the town square and John Wayne museum are 2 blocks away. I went to Winterset for the John Wayne museum and my wife for the bridges and we both fell in love with the town. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the... More

I really enjoyed the shared Living Room and being able to visit with the other guests as well as relax on the couch and watch TV. The access to a full kitchen... More

I always think that the marker of a good B&B is the nature of the hospitality you receive, the sort that you cannot find in the larger hotels. Steve and Nancy deliver this perfectly in this idilic retreat. The two guest bedrooms offer a very comfortable stay, and we found both the bedroom and the common kitchen and living area... More

What a great find! Steve spent lots of time with us, sharing stories and helping us with restaurants, etc. The whole place was ours for the night -- a bedroom, a huge living room, dining room, and kitchen, and a beautiful deck to enjoy the evening on. Breakfast was more than we could eat and delicious. We will definitely be... More

If you want to be "born again," this is the place to stay. What a wonderful homey place. Fantastic hosts, Steve and Nancy, make you feel special, and right at home. The Bed and Breakfast was formerly a church, and is clean and expertly decorated. (Even the ladder in the hallway holding photos) which I am sure was really Steve's... More
