We had a little bug of some kind hit us so we did not eat breakfast. Therefor I couldn't rate the dining, but it wouldn't let me skip it so I just set met my expectations. It was a lovely place and I would recommend it for a get away.

Not one complaint about our stay and can't wait to go back next summer! Ann is so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The B&B has the perfect location to everything in the Okoboji area. The breakfast was delicious. Everything was simply amazing!

This was a great get away! Annabelle suite was very charming. Nice size whirlpool tub and a three season room were included with this suite. There is access to a tv in the main family room as well as WiFi. A kitchen area had a refridgerator and a coffee pot that you could use. We were greeted with fresh cookies on the table and wine, cheese, and crackers in the refridgerator. We brought our own music and deprogrammed from our work lives with reading materials. There are plenty of choices throughout the Inn. Breakfast was made for us in the morning in the Tea Room (juice, coffee, breakfast quiche, fresh fruit, and a scone). A fabulous three story shop called The Wash House was on the property also. It had the most interesting things to buy. If you feel the need to leave the property, West Lake Okoboji was very close to go and see. There are cute little shops are within walking ( 1-8 miles) distance and tons of varieties of restaurants. But to relax and enjoy the time to ourselves was our goal this trip.

i needed a handicapped room which was not available in first night so they moved me downstairs on second night. Upstairs room was cute but a little small but adequate. The stairs were my main obstacle..i loved the downstairs room and it was much bigger room. Food was to die for. They were most accomodating on everything else.

Had a wonderful time. Donna and Sue are amazing. Food was fantastic and so was the breakfast conversation. Will make reservations again in the future.

Our room was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, with every little comfort anticipated and accommodated, even cushy robes! The food was fabulous! Coffee was so good, I still miss it (and haven't had its equal since). Innkeeper was a wonderful source of history, local lore, recommendations and tips for places to see and bike/hiking trails locations. Gift shop was a wonderful place to browse and shop, as well as a treasure trove of decorating/cooking ideas. Perfection would have been achieved if the bathroom had been more private; however, we were happy to have our very own.

The Okoboji Country Inn is very visible from Hwy.71. Turn west at the stop light at the intersection of Hwy. 71 and 202nd St. At the stop sign turn right onto Terrace Park Blvd. Drive about 1/4 of a mile and at the first driveway you see, turn right. Our inn is a big two-story white square house with a front porch with four large pillars. You can't miss our place because we have a small village here with our three old homes that have been remodeled.

Donna and Ann Muilenburg
Innkeeper Donna opened her gift shop in 1978, on the family farm in the old wash house. A few years later she relocated to the Iowa Great Lakes area and in 1997 her daughter Ann joined the business. The 1908 Milford Hospital was moved in and after a huge renovation the store is now three floors of gifts with a charming tea room. The Okoboji Country Inn was the latest addition to the village and opened for business in 2008. The innkeepers have a passion for restoring old houses.
My tea room guests at Annabelle's Tea Room have enjoyed my quiche for over 10 years. Now the guests staying at Okoboji Country Inn can also. I vary my quiche depending on what my guests want, from Quiche Lorraine which is a bacon and cheese quiche to the Southwest Quiche which has tomatoes, carrots, red and green peppers in it. I also serve a Crab Quiche, but the most popular is my Asparagus Quiche and is great for vegetarians too.
