The DM Register’s story on Iowa B&Bs today mentioned some I hadn’t heard of before. One in particular caught my eye because it’s in a town I like to visit – the pretty Northeast Iowa river town of McGregor. The place is Stauer House Bed & Breakfast.
In McGregor, we’ve had good luck with the Little Switzerland Inn. Two summers ago, I stayed there with a friend from London and we got the entire upper floor of the inn, complete with a full kitchen and balcony looking out on the Mississippi. In the past, we’ve rented the 1850’s cabin next to the Inn’s regular building, which is perfect for a family with kids – even if it’s a little strange being in a cabin smack dab on the busy Main Street. (The cabin was relocated, presumably from a more rural location where a cabin would more likely be built.)
