“Best B & B ever!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you have avoided B & B's because they make you think of doilies and teddy bears, try this beautifully decorated one where both old world charm mesh with modern touches to create a homey but very habitable place. Kudos as well to the wonderful B & B hosts and their decorator/chef who creates healthy, delicious, and eye-pleasing breakfasts!

A great, homey yet modern home. They've done a great job with the renovations. The breakfasts were the best...very flavorful and just the right portions. We are already trying to p lan a getaway to Decorah and Dug Road Inn for next year!!

The Dug Road Inn in Decorah Iowa is THE best Inn/B and B we have EVER stayed at. The friendly hosts, delicious breakfasts and attention to every detail leave a lasting impression that can't be beat!

Two groups of friends and we stayed at the Dug Road Inn at end of March to attend a wedding. The house is beautiful inside and out, and the location is excellent. It is in a quiet location just a quick walk from the downtown area and from the Whippy Dip <grin>. Many of the area's outdoor activities are nearby. The rooms are very comfortable and well-appointed. They pay attention to detail and the little comforts. The owners are gracious and accommodating, and the breakfast is top-notch. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Decorah.

Room Tip: The Top of the Inn is top-notch!

Perfect location, perfectly decorated, welcoming, friendly, comfortable and delicious food. Highly recommended.

You can walk just about everywhere - cute downtown with many shops, restaurants and even the Whippy Dip for ice cream. Classy place. I'll be back.

Room Tip: Stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

came to decorah for a friend's wedding, and he arranged to rent the whole inn for the july 4th weekend. was totally impressed by the attn to detail of the whole place: great organic toiletries, free wifi, and an exquisite breakfast made from local fare.

we stayed in the duncan room, which was a bit small for our family of three. the price is on the higher side ($145/nt for the duncan), especially for iowa, but you do get what you pay for. i also recommend upgrading to the baker room, if available - it's only $60 more, but you get a lot more space and a more modern decor.

we don't come to iowa often, and probably will never be in decorah again, but if we ever do come, we will stay here again for sure!

My entire family (12 of us) including grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dug Road Inn. Doug and Shirleen were super hosts and personally attended to every need we had. They treated us royally and made us feel like family! Sondra Petersen is an gourmet cook. The rooms and amenities were excellent and the meals 5 star! The location is perfect for downtown walking-exploration. We highly recommend the Dug Road Inn. Ron, Ft. Myers, FL

Room Tip: Book early- Decorah is a College town and popular
