Our 21st anniversary will be the best we ever had so far as we spent it at the Quiet Walker Lodge. Traveling out into the countryside, up into the woods to the most beautiful spot in Iowa I have ever seen. Secluded by trees you come around the corner to see the beautiful lodge. We were met in the parking lot by John, one of the innkeepers, who knew us by name and took us to our room then on a tour of the lodge. We stayed in the fluer-de-les room which was cozy with a fireplace, a heart shaped whirlpool bath, and a comfortable bed. The view from the room was breathtaking with a view of the woods. We were greeted in the morning both days with a wonderfully delicious meal and conversations with John and Deb. They really seemed to care about what we had done the day before and had many suggestions on where to eat and what sights to go see. We took their suggestions and had a great weekend. We will be going back in the spring to stay again and will tell everyone we know about the wonderful time we had and suggest they stay there too.

We decided to celebrate our 30th Anniversary in the Sedona Suite. We loved everything about this bed and breakfast. The serenity of the lodge was very romantic. John and Deb made a delicious breakfast. Watching the fire burn and the birds in the trees was enjoyable. We also were delighted to visit the winery's in the area. We will definitely be back!

We recently spent 3 nights in the Dubuque area, with the Quiet Walker as our home base. Brought our tandem and enjoyed a day of biking the length of the Heritage bike trail ( entrance point 5 minute drive from the Inn), local hiking at Mines of Spain, a great afternoon at The Barrelhead vineyard on advice of John and Deb, our innkeepers. The Inn grounds are quiet and beautiful...the breakfasts were gourmet delicious and the friendly ambience of the innkeepers made the 3 days an intimate, relaxing getaway.

My wife and I planned to stay for seven nights and ended up extending our stay an extra night. We stayed in the room Moonlight and Roses for seven nights and one night in Fluer-de-Lis. John and Deb are the best Inn Keepers we have ever had and we have stayed at many Bed and Breakfast Inns over the years. The secluded location of the Quiet Walker Lodge is great. We were looking for a place we could spend a week at to relax and re-charge and get away from it all. Boy, did we find the perfect place to go! The Moonlight and Roses room is quite large and we moved right in and enjoyed all the room had to offer. The view is very relaxing with watching the birds, rabbits, deer, squirrels, and a racoon right from our room. There is plenty to do in Dubuque and John and Deb can give you ideas. We came as guests and left as friends. The before breakfast coffee and conversation was great. And each breakfast we had was delicious and they served a different one each morning. John and Deb made our vacation stay special and we will be forever thankful to them for this. You will never meet a nicer couple than John and Deb are. I would encourage you to look no further and book a stay with the Quiet Walker Lodge with John and Deb as your hosts. I know you will enjoy your stay.

My wife and I stayed two nights to celebrate her birthday. Very nice rooms. We stayed in the Bella Vita and loved the waterfall. The only problem was that there were no chairs in that particular room. We want to return and stay in a couple of the other rooms. Deb and John were great hosts and we can not wait to return.

Growing up in Colorado and being high-school best friends (not sweethearts) we shared many dreams. After all the twists and turns in the landscape of life, we created a dream and vision together. Through many career changes, relocations, and other life altering events we were able to reflect on our passions and always wanted to be welcoming hosts as we love to entertain and pamper. Creating aromas in the kitchen that spill out onto the dining room floor delights both of us. Come relax with us!
