Trip Advisor's recent reviews:

"Perfect anniversary get away"

My boyfriend and I stayed in the penthouse suite and we were spoiled beyond belief. The breakfast was amazing! The room was cleaned to perfection. We loved the cozy, romantic feel. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub with the most perfect view of the river. It helped that the room was fully stocked (homemade cookies to boot) and the couple that owns it were the most hospitable. They went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our time!

"So amazing- cozy, clean, and romantic!"

My wife and I stayed on the top floor suite (aka Squirrel's Nest) and it was amazing. The view was incredible, the room was pristine and fully stocked with towels and toiletries. The hot tub was so relaxing, and we couldn't have imagined a more perfect view of the Mississippi River in all of Iowa. We watched bald eagles fishing in the early morning. The breakfast was incredible too, and the owners went above and beyond for us. Definitely will return!

  • Steamboat on the river

Riverboats frequently travel along the Mississippi River.
