An true gem

Shelly was an incredibly kind and giving host. Her breakfasts every morning were so delicious -- I could not believe it! She and her husband have taken great care to create a unique and special environment for guests.


The Perfect Writer's Retreat

5 on July 29, 2013

Don't miss an opportunity to stay at the Plume Grove Inn. Especially if you like to be treated like royalty every once in awhile. Not only will attendees of The Iowa Summer Writing Festival (just minutes away) enjoy the quiet and comfort of a 'home away from home," they can also take notepad or laptop (great wifi!) up to the roof patio to get some sun without having to resort to expensive coffee-shops with one-hour limits. Another point of value is the delicious, homemade breakfasts you'd be apt to pay $30 for in any restaurant, and the free street parking. Why settle for the usual motel/hotel continental offerings of dry bagels and cold cereal, and a daily $10 charge to park your rental car? The owner is kind and conscientious but not intrusive. The Inn itself is both contemporary in its construction, and detailed in its history. The Plum Grove Inn is just a very special place to spend some time, and worth every penny.

Our 3 nights at the Plum Grove Inn were very enjoyable. Very comfortable and conveniently located. The breakfasts were off-the-chart good.
