B&B Heaven

5 on September 16, 2018

Outstanding B&B. The owners make you feel like Family ( the good parts of Family). The Breakfast is truly outstanding. I used to work for the companies that publish Better Homes & Gardens and Southern Living. I’ve read many articles & reviews on B&B’s & We’ve been to many B&B’s here and overseas. Stauer House is as good as it gets. There are really interesting sites to see and most all are within a 10 minute drive. A number of very good places to eat from super casual to a really good steak house. Overall a very relaxing enjoyable stay. We highly recommend the Stauer House.

Beautiful home and place to visit

My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay in Mcgregor Iowa at noon the Stauer House. We checked in early and Donna had the room ready for us and showers it to us along with sharing the history of the house. The room had an air conditioner so we could regulate the coolness ourselves. Furnishings were quaint and age-appropriate for the house. Breakfast was served at 8 am with wonderful selections. Donna had asked when we checked in if we had any food allergies so she could cook accordingly. Very pleasant stay.

Comfortable, excellent choice

The Stauer House is a perfect place for a base to explore NE Iowa and SW Wisconsin. Rooms are beautifully furnished, breakfasts are delicious and different every day with plenty of choices. The house has been carefully restored and provides a wonderful place to relax.

Beautifully restored house with a homey feeling

We stayed at the Stauer House for 4 nights. It made an excellent base for hiking and seeing the historical sites of SW Wisconsin and NE Iowa. The house has been beautifully restored. Donna provided a great breakfast every morning with lots of variety. We would definitely stay there again if in the area.

We will stay there again.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and there was plenty of room to move around. It was much appreciated to have one's own bathroom. I was surprised at the amenities, from shower gel, shampoos, lotion, etc. She also had available numerous DVDs if one was interested and bottled water. I have already recommended Stauer house to others.

Hostess Donna is a lovely person

Breakfasts were EXCELLENT and served graciously, bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate. We'd stay there again.

My husband and I had a great stay at Stauer House. The location was easy to find and parking was convenient. It was just a short walk to the cute downtown and a quick ride to Pike's Peak State Park, Effigy Mounds, and across the river to Wyalusing State Park. The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was amazing. The friendly couple that owns this B&B offered great insight about the area and on places to explore.

Very enjoyable stay
