My girlfriend (now fiancee) and I got engaged last weekend at the Garden and Galley! Everything was perfect, from the amazing room we stayed in, to the beautiful scenery that surrounded us, to the filling and scrumptious breakfast we had, we could not have asked for a more special experience! We will truly remember this place for the rest of our lives and it has a special place in our hearts.

Garden and Galley is a wonderful B&B! Esther is a sweet hostess who cooks a tasty and filling breakfast. She was very accommodating with getting up earlier than her normal breakfast hours to feed us on one of the mornings. We will definitely stay in the Harvest Room again on future visits to the area.

It was an awesome place to stay and the service was outstanding. Made us feel like we were on our honeymoon again.

Warm, friendly, private, and peaceful. Everything a b and b should be. Great views and delicious food. I would definitely go back.

First of all, the Garden Suite was great. The view was beautiful--pictures can't do it justice. Breakfast was outstanding. Our host was interested and interesting without being obtrusive, which is always nice. But here's what stood out about our stay: we booked two nights, and after our first night, we drove about two and a half hours north for the event that had brought us to Iowa. That evening, as we were driving back, our car broke down, and we weren't able to make it back for the second night. Here's what our host did: she stored our belongings as long as we needed them to be stored, discounted our stay, and didn't charge us for the second night. We were grateful for the hospitality, and sorry that we missed out on night number two, but we can definitely recommend this place without reservations! (Though, you know, I would book a reservation...)
