“Off the beaten track but the Black Horse is a winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

The owner of this inn has done a wonderful job of remodeling and decorating. I'm so glad someone is providing resources to preserve and restore this historic building. The beds were the best of our ten-day trip. The host was very friendly and fixed us a wonderful breakfast which was served in the large, attractive dining room. The inn is immaculate and well maintained. Many might miss staying in this B & B as it is several miles north of Dubuque. it is located in a very small town of Sherrill which may have as many churches as people. The area is beautiful and if you are heading to Wisconsin, the Cassville ferry is nearby to take you across the mighty Mississippi River. Put this inn on your itinerary.

My husband and I just stayed at the Black Horse 9/28/2012. The rooms were beautiful. The host was knowlegable about the area. The breakfast was a hearty country breafast and we got to choose the time for breakfast which is great so we could be on our way to see the leaves. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend it to everyone and will stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms have bathrooms. The elevator only goes to the 2nd floor. So if you don't want to climb...

A wonderful experience. The hotel was amazing. I would have liked to spend a day just in the hotel! Beyond the charm of the historical landmark, the mattress, sheets, and towels were first rate. The people, not only gracious, but truly kind and caring, yet intelligent and sophisticated.

The Black Horse Inn is located in an 1860s limestone building, a former stagecoach inn and dance hall, in the tiny town of Sherrill, Iowa. Near Dubuque and its Heritage bike trail, Sherrill is in the heart of northeastern Iowa's driftless region--a lovely area of rolling hills, with bucolic farmhouse, barn, and church steeple views.

The Black Horse Inn has five lovely rooms, nicely and tastefully decorated, without a single stuffed bear or doll in sight. It also features comfortable beds, a perennial garden, porches, and delicious breakfasts. It's off the beaten track a bit, but well worth the drive. Indeed, the drive is part of the pleasure of staying there.
