Our 1918 Arts & Crafts house was previously a dentist office for 25 years. We purchased the home in 2010 and began the restoration process, completing it in 2012. Our location is one of the best! We are within walking distance of all the shops, bakeries, meat markets and historic sights. In fact only 1 block away! Honored by The Pella Historical Trust Society for restoration and historical preservation of the house in 2013. Our vision for the home is to declare the beauty of The Lord, and create a place of refuge where His name is glorified. Pastors and wives, church leaders our home offers rest and refreshing for the soul. Come enjoy a beautiful place to get away and find time to meet with God. We would like to host your ladies church retreat. Bev loves to present the Word. Girls night out will be a favorite with us along with shopping and dining.

Doug and Bev do not run this as a business, they run it as their home and guests become part of their family!! The main meal, breakfast, is delicious and beautifully plated. The Terpstra's kitchen remains open for guests beyond breakfast to help themselves to coffee, water, soft drinks, or even ice cream at any time. Conversation at the breakfast table can continue in the warm and comfortable living room where Doug and Bev welcome people to kick off their shoes and escape from life's worrisome problems. They will also, when requested, offer spiritual guidance for some of us grieving, lost souls. I, personally, do not consider Bev and Doug Terpstra, new acquaintances, but new members of my family. Thank you Bev and Doug, Carol Reardon
Carol, words cannot express our gratitude! Thank you and may The Lord continue to meet you.

We just loved our stay at The Dwelling Place. Doug and Bev have done a wonderful job breathing new life into their beautiful home. They are fantastic hosts. We stayed in their upstairs suite which is spacious, and felt like home. They are located so convenient to downtown Pella. It was nice to be able to just walk from their home to explore stores and restaurants. The breakfast Bev served was delicious! I would gladly return on another visit, and would highly recommend The Dwelling Place to anyone traveling to the Pella area.

This is a fine bed and breakfast in such a lovely town. The location, just a few houses off downtown, is perfect for walking and visiting the local sights and shops. The entire house is kept EXTREMELY clean and tidy. Food was tasty. The couple that owns it are sweet, godly people. You won't find something this perfect many other places.

We were exceptionally pleased with the warm hospitality Doug & Beverly provided. This B&B is a beautifully decorated home with many items of interest throughout. It's quiet but close to the main downtown areas of Pella. We would come back to The Dwelling Place as our first choice and strongly recommend it to friends. Be sure to take a little time to get to know Doug & Beverly, they're delightful people and happy to share their Christian fellowship. We also felt the value for the price was great.
