“Romantic, Amazing and Simply WONDERFUL!!!”

5 sur mai 22, 2015

Lauren and Clark have quite simply the most romantic,charming and delightful bread and breakfast that I have ever been to! My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room and it was gorgeous! The bed was big and comfy and Lauren even offered to turn down our bed for us! She brought us chocolates in the evening when checking on us to make sure that we were set for the night! They have refreshments that are available to guests at no charge. The decor fits well with the charm of this home that was built in the 1920's and is right across the street from the Des Moines art center. The bed was simply luxurious and comfortable to sleep in. The next morning for breakfast our hosts first brought out a plate of wonderful fresh fruit and then for the main course we had a delightful ham and cheese quiche, homemade cinnamon rolls and hashbrowns! They also have the most exquisite coffee. I literally felt like Cinderella with my prince in the beautiful castle!! We highly recommend this place and will be back again! I will say though the rooms are not handicapped accessible though (my husband has M.S and walks with a cane and so it took him a bit to get up to our room), so if you are someone who uses a wheelchair or has difficultly walking you may want to keep this in mind. Still though by far this home and it's hosts are simply grand!

Americana is Alive and Well

5 sur septembre 06, 2012

I live in Europe, so this lovely B&B filled with authentic furniture and treasured books really fits the bill when wanting to have a true American experience.

The first time I have been impressed in a year.

5 sur janvier 13, 2011

If you are thinking about staying at this B&B then do it. My husband and I chose to marry in Des Moines and staying at this inn made the trip amazing. From the amazing breakfasts, to turning down the beds at night, to scraping the ice off my car before we left, the service was just amazing; and that’s just the service – the accommodations were outstanding as well. We will come back for all the important anniversaries. Thank you guys so much, Chris and Tj

Annual visit- Favorite B & B

5 sur décembre 30, 2010

My wife and I continue to look forward to our annual visit to see Clark and Lauren. Their family and house are some of the most lovely we've encountered. We have returned every year to celebrate our anniversary and continue to encourage friends and family to stop in. All of the rooms (we've tried 4) are unique, charming, and impeccably clean and orderly. Clark and Lauren continue to impress us with their hospitality. Best B & B we've stayed at! It's one of the absolute best things in Des Moines- which probably makes it one of the best parts of Iowa! Definitely worth visiting and revisiting!

The grand-est stay ever

5 sur juillet 06, 2010

The Butler House on Grand is hands-down the cleanest, friendliest, and most comfortable B&B we have ever stayed at. Each room is meticulously designed & renovated to offer a clean & quiet retreat in the beautiful old house. The beds are luxurious in each room (we have frequented the B&B and stayed in several of the rooms). The innkeepers are wonderful and make one feel at home immediately, while being respectful of privacy. A phenominal breakfast is just icing on the cake. A must-stay when in Des Moines.

Couldn't ask for more - great location!!

We stayed here one night in summer 2009. Beautiful area of town - take some time to explore the neighborhood if you can. Many historic houses, many just plain ol' beautiful vintage houses, large gorgeous park across the street, nice art gallery with great cafe also across the street. As for the Butler House, I want a house like this! It's very large yet extremely cozy. I sneaked a peek at several of the other rooms the next morning, and they were all nice - but I have to say, the room we stayed in, the Secret Garden, was like something out of a dream. Of all the many rooms I've stayed in over the years, I think this was the most beautiful, cheerfully decorated one. It exuded good vibes. It is impossible to be depressed in this cream-and-coral room - it forces you to be happy! It was heartbreaking to have to leave, but I took the design & color ideas with me. You can tell Lauren pours a lot of attention to detail into this place - she is a true professional. From the truffles at turndown to the Butler House logo notepads to the hallway stocked fridge/'butler's area' to the in-room phones with a 1-touch call button to summon her if you need anything, all has been thought of & provided. She also gave us a good late-night restaurant recommendation. We had never been to Des Moines (or for that matter, Iowa) before, and we left with a great impression. If you have time, visit downtown - it's beautiful. The highlights were the state capitol, which looks like something out of a European baroque fantasy, and the Sherman house/art gallery (free).

worth a repeat visit!

This B&B is clean and charming with nice, well-appointed rooms. Pillows aren't the best, so bring your own! But definitely worth a repeat visit!!

I wish I lived here!

5 sur août 25, 2008

This is a beautiful, yet comfortable, home that hosts Lauren and Clark share with their guests. We have stayed here several times when passing through central Iowa and have had a wonderful experience each time. We have stayed in three different rooms-- all were beautifully decorated, yet still comfortable. My husband has a terrible time sleeping in beds away from home, but even he loves it at Butler House! The breakfasts are to die for, and they will keep feeding you until you can't eat another bite! I only wish I got to Des Moines more often.

Secret Garden Room

3,8 sur août 14, 2008

We spent a restful night, but the bed was very soft, and had a tendency to move when we did. The shower stall was quite small, and the showerhead reached my chin (I'm only 5'10", not exactly a giant by Iowa standards.) But, this is to be expected in a 100+ year old house. The rest of our stay was delightful. Service was good, the inn was clean, and the location was delightfully quiet.
