So Dear To My Heart
Bed & Breakfast
Casual elegance in a peaceful country setting

Set in the peaceful Iowa countryside, this beautiful 1917 Craftsman style home offers five bedrooms to choose from. Three bathrooms are shared by guests. In the common areas, guests may enjoy television, piano playing, cards and table games, or just conversation. A large screened in porch stretches the length of the east side of the house and is accessed through French doors in the dining room. Pocket doors separate the dining room from the living room.  Beautiful woodwork, leaded glass windows, and gorgeous built-in cabinets make this house an elegant, yet comfortable place to relax and get away from the hectic pace of everyday life. A large shady yard, where flower beds abound, offers a peaceful opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and nature during the warmer seasons.

The large breakfast selection is served buffet style and includes many special homemade dishes. Guests may request delivery to their rooms. Each room is provided with individual coffee service so that the first cup of the morning may be enjoyed leisurely in your room.

Guests will be treated to evening snacks including cheese and crackers, popcorn, fresh fruit, and assorted pies or cake. Beverages will be available as well (no alcohol).

Reservations are appreciated and may be made through e-mail at: or by phoning 319-658-2040.
