PERFECT LOCATION IN DECORAH!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a few days to visit Decorah Iowa. There were three of us girlfriends/past roommates of Luther College in Decorah Iowa. What a wonderful treat it was to find the Loft on Water Street. It was a very clean and spacious loft and we enjoyed having it as our temporary home for our trip. We wanted to catch up on the many years we have not seen each other, eat Mabes pizza, and tour around the campus and town. The location was Perfect! Right next to Mabes and so easy for all of our plans. A little glitch in getting into the Loft, but the owners fixed that for us ASAP. The apartment was so clean and comfy. It even had a pool table but we were so busy catching up that we did not even get a chance to use it. Thanks for making our trip special! We would recommend this Loft for your stay in Decorah!

Very nice space, pictures don't do it justice

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific time, lots of great food. La Rana, Rubiayat, Oneota Food Coop and Mabe's pizza to name a few and two awesome brew pubs in Toppling Goliath and Pulpit. Make sure you go to Dunning Falls and the ice cave which are both within a mile or two on foot via great trails.

Great location, all the comforts!

Close to all the "go to" spots in Decorah and spacious enough to do a little entertaining. Spotlessly clean.

Huge apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The apartment is great. Loved the pool table. All the little extras (e.g., cooking oil, q-tips) that were provided were great too!
