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.

PERFECT LOCATION IN DECORAH!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a few days to visit Decorah Iowa. There were three of us girlfriends/past roommates of Luther College in Decorah Iowa. What a wonderful treat it was to find the Loft on Water Street. It was a very clean and spacious loft and we enjoyed having it as our temporary home for our trip. We wanted to catch up on the many years we have not seen each other, eat Mabes pizza, and tour around the campus and town. The location was Perfect! Right next to Mabes and so easy for all of our plans. A little glitch in getting into the Loft, but the owners fixed that for us ASAP. The apartment was so clean and comfy. It even had a pool table but we were so busy catching up that we did not even get a chance to use it. Thanks for making our trip special! We would recommend this Loft for your stay in Decorah!
