Our family stayed with David and Elizabeth while in Ottumwa for our son's wedding. Their hospitality exceeded our expectations and they were a calming force in our hectic schedule. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and appetizers. Elizabeth served a delicious and satisfying breakfast. Their garden space was spectacular and was used for some of the wedding photographs. We highly recommend Plum Panache Bed and Breakfast!

We traveled through Ottumwa on our way to Omaha and had the opportunity to experience hospitality at it's best at Plum Panache Bed & Breakfast. We were greeted at our car and assisted with our luggage which was such a nice surprise. David and Liz were awesome and made us feel so welcome. We had the whole house to ourselves as they have separate accommodations. We enjoyed raspberry cheesecake with hot chocolate by the outdoor fireplace and listened to music while we played cribbage. What a marvelous evening, peaceful and quiet, lovely gardens to enjoy, candlelight breakfast, everything was top notch. We agreed to make this an annual destination getaway. An incredible value!

We stayed at Plum Panache Bed & Breakfast in August. We have been there several times in the past 2 years as we find it such a perfect place to stay when we visit our relatives in Ottumwa. Once again we found our experience to be simply wonderful. David and Elizabeth feel like family, they greeted us with hugs and questions about our families and careers. We felt so special that they would remember details we had shared with them previously, they truly care about their guests and it's obvious they love what they do because it shows in every detail of their lovely accommodations. We will be back at Christmas and we're looking forward to their fabulous Christmas decor! Thank-you Klanderman's for another lovely weekend.

What a wonderful experience we had during our stay at Plum Panache! Liz and David were so warm and welcoming, the rooms were beautiful, the food was exactly as we had requested, and the stay was truly a joy! Liz even made a special trip to the grocery store to purchase an item that we are not able to find where we live! Both Liz and David went "above and beyond" to help us during our stay. We will definitely return when we are back in town! Thanks, Klandermans! Ann W. and Roger W.

As newlyweds, my wife and I (later 50s) decide to explore bed and breakfasts in the region. In the middle of our honeymoon, we stayed at Plum Panache and found a true diamond. We were greeted and warmly welcomed when we arrived and given a choice of 2 suites. Wonderful dining advice for the evening was offerred, and we were advised to return in time for dessert before retiring. A wonderful chocolate torte served with fresh raspberries was served and set the stage for a grand night filled with sweet dreams! A tray of complimentary snack items rested on a buffet in the hallway in the unlikely event a midnight snack was needed. The rooms were beautifully outfitted. The three season room provided the perfect atmosphere for my morning quiet time and reading. The only diversion was the filling of my coffee cup to keep the coffee fresh and hot in my cup. Our vegetarian breakfast consisted of a freshly baked vegetable quiche, perfectly ripe fresh fruit and a selection of fruit juices to accompany our coffee. To top it all off, a fresh apple cobbler ensured there was no stopping for meals until dinner! While what I have spoken of would sufficiently ensure a high rating, all this was secondary to the fantastic gregarious nature David and Elizabeth conveyed as proprietors. Within minutes of our arrival, we felt as though we were long lost friends who wanted us to be treated to their very best. They were no longer proprietors, they were ambassadors doing all they could to ensure our stay would be nothing less than perfect. Indeed, our stay was nothing less than perfect! All other bed and breakfasts we had on our trip were now compared to Plum Panache, and none (regardless of expense) measured up to the standard David and Elizabeth created on our stay. In fact, we had barely returned home when the question was raised as to how soon we could return. An excellent stay. Outstanding service. Great ambiance. Genuine servants' hearts. We will certainly be returning!
