A Lovely Stop

4.6 on August 23, 2014

We had not specifically planned to stop in Mason City but having stayed in The Decker House, I'm glad we did. The house and the adjacent residential area is beautiful, with interesting architecture, some fascinating history and a real sense of community. We arrived late but the staff were there to get us settled in and while we had to leave early and were unable to partake of the full breakfast, we had a continental breakfast which was more than adequate.

Great stay in a nice historic house.

Our second stay in the 3rd floor Magnolia Suite - the only one with the jacuzzi. A bar of soap would have been nice. All they had was body wash. They'd upgraded the bed to a king, but because of the narrow staircase, the mattress and box spring are two twins so there's a seam in the mattress. As last time, it was cold, no - downright freezing, and the only way to regulate the temp is to manually close A/C vents in the room. The thermostat is on the second floor and off limits to guests, and set for second floor comfort. We enjoyed our stay and the hosts were very friendly. The breakfast was fantastic and was a great start to our day.

A+ B&B

My husband and I love staying in B&B's and this one is at the top of our list. The atmosphere could not be more welcoming, delicious breakfasts and the cleanliness and rooms.....superb. Sally and Sophie are the perfect owners of this B&B. Thank you for a memorable experience. Dan and Dianne C.

Pleasant stay at the Decker House
