Come enjoy the product of the 1999 Des Moines Symphony Designer Show House. This Tudor mansion has been lovingly refurbished and brought back to its original splendor.

This room is furnished by Des Moines' own furniture maker, Sticks. The whimsical furniture will help you leave all your stress behind. This room is perfect for a romantic get away or special occasion.

I live in Europe, so this lovely B&B filled with authentic furniture and treasured books really fits the bill when wanting to have a true American experience.

If you are thinking about staying at this B&B then do it. My husband and I chose to marry in Des Moines and staying at this inn made the trip amazing. From the amazing breakfasts, to turning down the beds at night, to scraping the ice off my car before we left, the service was just amazing; and that’s just the service – the accommodations were outstanding as well. We will come back for all the important anniversaries. Thank you guys so much, Chris and Tj

My wife and I continue to look forward to our annual visit to see Clark and Lauren. Their family and house are some of the most lovely we've encountered. We have returned every year to celebrate our anniversary and continue to encourage friends and family to stop in. All of the rooms (we've tried 4) are unique, charming, and impeccably clean and orderly. Clark and Lauren continue to impress us with their hospitality. Best B & B we've stayed at! It's one of the absolute best things in Des Moines- which probably makes it one of the best parts of Iowa! Definitely worth visiting and revisiting!

The Butler House on Grand is hands-down the cleanest, friendliest, and most comfortable B&B we have ever stayed at. Each room is meticulously designed & renovated to offer a clean & quiet retreat in the beautiful old house. The beds are luxurious in each room (we have frequented the B&B and stayed in several of the rooms). The innkeepers are wonderful and make one feel at home immediately, while being respectful of privacy. A phenominal breakfast is just icing on the cake. A must-stay when in Des Moines.
