“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 20 November 2008

We LOVED our experience at the Plain & Fancy! Tom & Brenda were wonderful hosts, and the property is great. I wish we could have stayed longer!

We stayed in the Amish room, and it was marvelous. We especially liked this room because it was less frilly (a plus for the guys) and the large bathroom was awesome. A large Jacuzzi tub perfect for two (and plenty of hot water!) and a spa shower were definitely highlights. There was a fridge stocked with soda & water, along with a neat coffee & tea maker, right outside our door. While we opted for the Jacuzzi in our room, the hot tub on the deck looked mighty inviting (especially in November!). The pool looked nice too, but it was obviously closed for the winter. The gazebo & fire patio were inviting also.

Brenda's breakfast was amazing, and really got your day off to a good start. And the conversation at the breakfast table made it that much better! Tom & Brenda are wonderful hosts--they make you feel most welcome, then leave you in privacy when you need it. They know what they're doing!

We'll definitely be back to the Plain & Fancy--hopefully with some friends next time!

Quiet rural setting near historic Ironton. There are 3 large rooms in the main house. We stayed in the 2nd floor Amish room which was decorated with hand-crafted furniture. Perfect for my husband who is not fond of too much frou-frou. The property was spotless and well-decorated inside and out, with much attention to details such as a plate of cookies in our room, chocolates by the bedside, and fluffy bathrobes. Breakfast was delicious and well-balanced. There was a stocked refrigerator and coffemaker right outside our door. There is a beautiful in-ground pool with a slide, a separate hot tub overlooking nearby Stout's Creek, as well as a lit gazebo. I loved our large bath with an over-sized jacuzzi and tiled spa shower. A perfect place to unwind, comfy and romantic. We only stayed one night, on our way to float the nearby Black River, but this B&B is a location in itself. There are many interesting activities nearby, such as a Civil War Battlefield, the Ozark Trail, antiquing, and many state parks and conservation areas. We've stayed in about 20 B&B's, and this was one of the best.

We were greeted by Brenda "the Innkeeper" and she made us feel very welcome. The B&B was very clean and the breakfast was fabulous! We highly recommend this B&B if you are planning to visit Ironton Missouri and the surrounding areas.
