We have stayed at this lovely B and B a couple of times and have enjoyed both of our stays quite a bit. It is in a convenient location on a quite cul du sac with a quaint neighborhood feeling. The owner, Daissy, is very interesting and conversational. When we were there this past May the weather was wonderful. My husband and I sat on the front porch with her talking about everything from recipes to Facebook's impending IPO. Will definitely stay with her as long as our daughter is a student at Iowa. And hopefully beyond.
