The best B & B we have ever experienced. Steve and Nancy are deightful hosts who have thought of every amenity to develop a comfortable place to relax. The location in Winterset is perfect for enjoying the area. It is not possible to over rate this beautiful home. Our breakfast was outstanding and the conversations with Steve and Nancy were and added bonus.

This is our 4th year visiting Heavenly Habitat because it's such a wonderful place. It's clean, quiet and the breakfast the host puts on is spectacular. Steve and Nancy are wonderfully friendly but not intrusive. Thank you again for our wonderful stay. Gail and Raymond

If you plan on visiting Winterset, IA, stay at the Heavenly Habitat B&B if it is available. A charming converted church is the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Steve and Nancy are excellent hosts and offer a fabulous breakfast to start your day. We met family there and enjoyed the common living area that offers a full kitchen, living room and dining room, with a nice deck for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. We felt right at home. The location is great .. near downtown, with restaurants and shopping nearby. Can't say enough nice things about this B&B! It was the perfect get away for us!

This is a wonder B&B run by a retired couple, Steve & Nancy. It is 2 blocks away from the John Wayne Birthplace & Museum. Each May the museum hosts a John Wayne celebration to celebrate his birthday on May 26. It is usually a 2 to 3 day event. We have stayed at the Habitat twice now. It is in a renovated church and very close to the downtown area of Winterset. The county seat of Madison County and the home of 6 covered bridges. It is a delightful place to stay. It is quiet, clean, & serves the best breakfast in Town! We highly recommend it.

Thanks for your kind words. The opportunity to meet with such nice guests as our Jersey friends during the annual John Wayne festival ranks right up there with the time that we had the Legendary actress Ms. Maureen O'hara!

Heavenly Habitat B & B is an absolutely charming B & B. The owners are extremely pleasant. The stay includes a very full home-cooked breakfast. This is a great place to stay if you are in the Winterset area. The premises is immaculately kept. I would stay here again. My room had its own bathroom.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Heavenly Habitat this week for an overnight trip to see the Covered Bridges of Madison County. The Heavenly Habitat was easy to book over the phone, and Steve and Nancy were friendly and professional. It is the true bed and breakfast experience, with lots of information available about local attractions and eateries. I enjoyed a hearty breakfast of blueberry crepes, baked eggs & ham, sausage patties, juice and coffee. I even got to choose my breakfast time. The bed was comfortable, the towel was fluffy, and everything was clean. I had access to a bedroom with a private bath, a living room and dining room area, and a kitchen where I could make my own coffee. I stayed in the room that actress Maureen O'Hara stayed in when she visited Winterset for the opening of the John Wayne Birthplace Museum. Nancy and Steve have really thought of everything to make your stay pleasant. I highly recommend the Heavenly Habitat!
