I don't know why it's not showing yet. This is what I wrote: Who would have thought that the small town of St. Ansgar Iowa holds such a wonderful B&B. I've stayed at the Blue Belle Inn four times now and it has become my home away from home. Sherrie, the owner, has done a wonderful job in romantically decorating this Victorian style house. Each room has it's own theme, based on a famous novel. My favorite room is Sherwood Forrest on the second floor. If you are going to stay at the Blue Belle then be prepared for a warm welcome by Sherrie and her staff. Breakfast is superb, home cooked and always includes fresh fruit. Eat it all and you won't be hungry until dinner time. Even though St. Ansgar has other restaurants Sherrie will be more than happy to serve you a great lunch or dinner as well. My favorite part of the Blue Belle Inn is the porch swing on the front porch. It's a great spot to relax.

In this case, the view was watching the dinner play, almost participating in it. Lots of fun and a great night out!

We are friends of IPTV so could stay here 2 nights for 1 price. It's a nice way to have a great stay & meet more nice people as we travel.

After attending a family wedding, we enjoyed a very relaxing stay at this beautifully restored and decorated inn. The owner was very gracious and attentive to our needs, even making sure that the temperture in our room was to our liking. Our bed was very comfortable and the morning breakfast was delicious! We highly recommend this fine bed and breakfast.

I came to the Blue Belle Inn after learning the other B&B I was at was over charging me. The Blue Belle was very welcoming and gave me a great rate.

Beautifully restored Victorian home with charmingly decorated rooms with children's book themes. Although rooms and dinner were somewhat expensive by our standards, it was a lovely place to stay.

This beautiful inn was a wonderful surprise in the middle of rural Iowa. The friendly staff welcomed us and allowed us to explore all of the other whimsically themed rooms, which were flashbacks to the favorite books of my childhood. And the breakfast made me feel like I was in a different decade, with dainty tea cups and delicious food. I cannot wait to come back!
