I would definitely return. Our check in was very smooth as well as check out. The breakfast was very nice, much much better than the "breakfast" you receive at chain hotels. Clean, comfortable rooms. Easy walk if you are visiting Iowa State.
Our stay at Iowa House was a welcome surprise. I saw it on a list of interesting places to stay and it appealed to me immediately AND it was less expensive than the hotel chains. Walking in was like walking into your own living room. The decor is mostly mission style and is cozy like a home would be. It was quiet... Even with others staying there we heard nothing. Breakfast was wonderful and served in the dining room made to order. It was such a nice experience and worth the cost. If traveling to Ames I would recommend this over a hotel chain any day!!
Iowa House was charming, clean, and every room had unique character. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend staying here and it's very close to the college if you are there for a visit as we were.
What a peaceful getaway for my hubby and I! The bed was amazing, the room was over the top and yummy food!!! We enjoyed the little garden sitting area, the view for miles from their yard, and even walked the rolling gravel road for a workout you won't get at the gym! HEHE We will go back for sure!!
Iowa House is a lovely B&B in a quiet neighborhood in Ames, Iowa. It is beautifully decorated with homemade quilts and photographs of days past. We stayed in a room with a loft and a spacious bathroom. Sunday breakfast was spectacular, with bloody Marys, eggs Benedict, fruit, and asparagus. Our vegan friend had breakfast cooked to order. There are a number of fine restaurants nearby. We had dinner at Indian Delights and lunch at The Stomping Grounds. We will definitely stay at Iowa House the next time we are in Ames!
We have stayed here many times over the years of kids at ISU, closest lodging to campus. You are able to walk to your kid and have them join you for breakfast! A super fun house, so much nicer than any hotel in Ames!
We have enjoyed tea at Miss Spencer's and know their style and service are outstanding, so we were not disappointed when we planned an anniversary celebration at their Bed and Breakfast. It was a most memorable experience. All aspects of our stay were outstanding and so enjoyable. The peace and quiet of their farm, the comfortable accommodations, along with delicious food for both supper and breakfast made for a lovely anniversary celebration. Thank you so much, Donna.
It was fortunate indeed to find Longview Farm! It's truly a charming and beautiful B&B in Iowa. As far as the eye can see are rolling hills and beautiful skies. I was treated so wonderfully in the Garden Room. There is a little English garden next to it. I loved the breakfast and afternoon tea. Just like being in the UK, but even a bit better! The owners, Donna and Don are wonderfully kind and talented. I felt very pampered. Loved their BBC film collection. Ask to see their amazing tearoom too!! Can't wait to go back there!!!
Wife and I really enjoyed the stay. We both will book again. The whirlpool tub to relax in was just what sent us over the top. They had some salts for you but the wife bought some at a store, one with more smells or something. Overall awesome experience. The morning cook was a very polite and professional.
For the last 4 years this is where we have always tried to stay. It's homey and comfortable. The staff is incredibly gracious and breakfast in the morning? Fabulous! So sad our last stay was this past weekend, but our daughter is graduating and Ames will be but a great memory for us. Thanks Iowa House!
I didn't know what to expect when I booked an overnight room at Iowa House but I was very surprised by my stay there. Everything was better than expected. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the breakfast in the morning (while small in size) was very good. It was a very enjoyable stay and I would gladly come back again.
