I was planing our B&B stays for our business trip from Ohio towards St.Paul MN for a business convention and then on over the top of Lake MI and back down. After reading all of the great reviews on Tripadvisor for Walking Iron B&B, I booked on-line and was not disappointed.
We drove into the area and wondered how an incredible B&B could be located in such a little town, and then turned the corner to see the grande ole home.
Once inside we could see how lovingly the house had been restored. We stayed in the Lenora's Garden View room, upstairs. Thankful that the whole house was air conditioned with the record heat of the summer of 2012!!!
We were recommended to dine (within walking distance) at an old mill that was converted into a restaurant--excellent! Then we enjoyed the rest of the evening on the front porch of the B&B with other guests.
Breakfast, the next morning was outstanding! Everything was first rate!
The whole experience was highly recommendable!
Next time we go, we would love to take in show at the local theater, which had high marks from the other guests.
