I was so glad to stay at Asahi lofts. (Beautiful Japanese decor, dishes, including robes and slippers for guests) It was as wonderful a place as the pictures show and even more than expected. We came to the loft and found homemade bread and warm apple crisp waiting for us plus some refrigerated items for breakfast. Because we stayed 3...

Thank you for taking time to add a review. Indeed these guests experienced nasty weather, but embraced the quiet and took advantage of the tranquility of the Loft. Sometimes a weekend away is meant for slowing down.

The Asahi Loft is a beautiful place. We especially appreciated the refrigerator stocked with basic foods. The fresh baked bread was delicious. We only stayed one night but hope to stay longer next time and we will be back.

About the neighbourhood
Asahi Loft of Harmony is on the edge of the picturesque community of Harmony. Only 5 blocks from the center of town, just off Highway 52 and halfway between Decorah, Iowa and Lanesboro.
Fall and Winter have become our 'busy season' with cross county skiing, hiking and snow shoeing replacing the bikes. We can direct you to several stretches of the Harmony Bike trail that are great for beginners. Even if there is a small snowfall, these areas hold the snow and the wildlife and winding creek make for a picturesque jaunt. Harmony does not 'shut down' after October. Our restaurants remain open all year and two are open 7 days a week. We can help you find wonderful ways to fill your time. Or curl up in front of the fireplace and practice being 'mindful'.
