“This is the BEST B&B I have EVER stayed in, anywhere!”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

Dug Run Inn is a wonderfully cozy, quaint Bed & Breadfast, recently renovated. Breakfast was gourmet and delicious every morning. The presentation and ambiance throughout the home were 'top drawer.' We had options to eat in our room, in the dining room, or outside on the covered verandah, depending on weather. The entire facility was spotlessly clean. There is a separate kitchen on the second floor for guests. We chose to hold our small private wedding there; the inn keeper offered use of their place at no additional charge. The staff helped us in every way needed from baking a wedding cake to selecting and arranging flowers for us. [We, of course, paid for direct expenses.] The also assisted us with findng a musician and an officiant to perform the service.

Again, I would recommend Dug Road Inn to anyone who wants the privacy of a B&B in a small town only 2 blocks from the downtown with restaurants and shops. The area also has nature hiking and canoeing available. Decorah also has a great food co-op and is generally a very friendly, attractive town.

The residence is beautiful and the hosts very warm and welcoming! My favorite area was the front porch. The breakfast was tasty and made with local ingredients and who doesn't like an additional dessert course with breakfast? I would recommend this B&B to any who want to stay in the Decorah area.

My 3 year old son and I stayed at the Dug Road Inn two nights and loved it!! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a big screen tv and a small dining table and chairs in a cozy little alcove. The bathroom was GORGEOUS, with a separate shower, heated marble tile floor, clawfoot tub and nice robes. Our room had lots of closet space and even a washer and dryer(!). The house itself is absolutely stunning (no doubt due to one of the owners being an interior designer), the seating and communal dining areas are very comfortable and though all five rooms in the house were booked during our stay it never felt crowded. The owners were very friendly, especially with my young son, which I very much appreciated. The breakfast was EXCELLENT! They really took a great deal of time and care to make a tasty, nutritious multi-course breakfast with fresh, local and organic food. The location of the house is perfect, adjacent Decorah's great walking/biking trails and just a block away from one end of Water Street, the main shopping/dining area in Decorah. I would highly recommend this place for a quiet, small family or romantic couple, adding that we did spend a night in a suite at the Hotel Winneshiek and wished that we were back at the Dug Road Inn! The food and accomodations are far superior in my opinion, with the Dug Road being infinitely cleaner and more modern. We'll definitely be staying here when we visit Decorah in the future!

We liked this bed and breakfast inn. We found the hosts to be very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Duncan Room, the only one with a private bath. The room had a very home-like, welcoming feel. It had wallpaper with bouquets of flowers in pink, plum, blue, and green. The coverlet and curtains were matelasse in a fresh light green, and there was a pink area rug. The queen bed was comfortable. There's a small TV and a ceiling fan, and the room had much better lighting than most places we've stayed. The good-sized bathroom has a two-person whirlpool tub but no shower; it too was attractively decorated. The rollaway bed we requested for our son is smaller than the usual rollaway, so probably most adults would not find it comfortable. We were able to look at one other guest room; it was good-sized and painted a rich khaki-green.

There is a small upstairs sitting area next to the stairs. (Unlike most b and b's, where at least one parlor is open to guests, this one had all the downstairs rooms closed off while we were there, so if you need a sitting room that will seat more than two people, be sure you ask whether that would be available to you.) There's also a kitchen upstairs which is available to guests, and there's a bookshelf full of magazines there. Breakfast is served there (or on the large porch), and the hosts are flexible about serving it at the time you prefer. Our breakfast was excellent and consisted of coffee, orange juice (it tasted fresh-squeezed), a hot omelet-like casserole, coffee, bread (there's a toaster there, and they even had black-raspberry jam), a platter of various fresh fruits, and a fruit cobbler with whipped cream.

The inn is on a hill, but there is a flat area to park. There's also a church parking lot behind it which the hosts told us it would be all right to use (we weren't there on a Sunday). We were very comfortable at this inn and expect to stay there again. And while you're in Decorah, be sure to visit the Vesterheim, which is a very high quality museum and much larger than it looks. (They even have a tall boat in there.) We also enjoyed the food at the restaurant right next door to the museum.
