Charming, comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property with another couple and it was perfect. Plenty of space to hang out, cook and play pool together, but we each had our own bedroom and full bath. Decorah is charming! We enjoyed walking the trail along the river, and exploring the local shops and restaurants. The Loft is in the perfect location and we could walk everywhere. Great weekend getaway!

Great access to downtown

  • 5 of 5

Great location and easy to get street access. My wife and I went with another couple and had a great time looking at the water falls and then coming back and eating dinner and have a few drinks and the local bars.

Perfect, would return

  • 4 of 5

We were booked for two adult couples, but due to a death in the family there were only two of us able to make the trip. The property would have been perfect for the four of us, but the two of us enjoyed it all the same! Great floor plan, everything we needed was there. The only thing that would make this property better is if it had a balcony, but that just isn't part of the layout here. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Decorah.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind response. The place is indeed popular with and perfect for two couples. We have lots of guests comment that it's better than two rooms at Hotel Winneshiek (right next door) at half the price. Hope to see you soon. Thanks for staying.
