    Room was well appointed. Bed was super comfortable. Owner strives to be environmentally responsible. Never stayed at a BB before, it was a very comfortable experience. Location is great to walk to pretty much anywhere in the area.

    Enjoyed staying in this historic home in downtown Grinnell, a short walk from the college campus. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Would certainly stay there again if I have another occasion to visit Grinnell.
