My wife and I plus another couple spent an all-too short one-night stay at the Butler House while in Des Moines to see "Jersey Boys". The home is a classic gem located across the street from the Art Center. Lauren and Clark were wonderful hosts who met us at 4 pm on the Saturday of our stay. Lauren recommended an Italian restaurant for us (Lucca's) which was just perfect. We toured around downtown for a while (it was an amazingly hot day in the upper 90s so we keep the outdoor activities to a minimum). Des Moines seems to have weathered the recession well with lots of new construction downtown.
Breakfast Sunday morning was as good as it gets... great food and even greater conversation with Lauren and Clark and their daughter. We highly recommend the Butler House and plan to return on our next trip to Des Moines!
