So scenic

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous view ! We loved all the birds being so close ; we could even hear the hummer so as they fed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots.

The house was very spacious and had beautiful views of the river valley. It has nice access to Decorah yet is out of town in a scenic setting.

A MARVELOUS weekend at Barbara's Valley View B&B !

  • 5 of 5

Her house is so wonderful and we filled it with two groups of relatives in town for a Luther College/ Decorah wedding. I highly recommend both of her units (Valley View and Garden View) to everybody reading this. We'll be back -- we know. Bird-feeders by the windows were so fun to watch. Gorgeous home (we were in the upstairs Valley View unit) with Ev-er-y-thing we needed -- all kitchen gear and linens and so much more. All clean and as described, and wonderful walking trails. Such views of the Valley! We met their son Ross who lives nearby and came to unlock the connection between units since we are all family.

We are Contented and happy renters! Thank you, Barbara and family!
