Why Doug Reid chose Decorah
Centrally located on Water Street in downtown Decorah, you will find no better property from which to launch your adventures around Winneshiek County.
What makes this Apartment unique
Wake up cradled in luxury cotton sheets, to the smell of freshly roasted and brewed coffee from Java John's Coffeehouse, literally downstairs from your bedroom. The large deck off the kitchen begs for you to read the morning paper and enjoy the 270 degree views of downtown, the bluffs and the Vesterheim complex. No other property in downtown Decorah boasts views from literally every window.

60th Birthday Celebration
This flat is lovely. The layout is convenient and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well laid out, the bathrooms were clean and attractive. Best of all we loved the deck off the back. While it may not look like much from the outside looking up, it was a little bit of paradise as we sipped wine and enjoyed appetizers. I would come to Decorah again if I could stay in this lovely place. The owner is a dear which added to the experience.
Thank you so much Jean. It was lovely meeting you, and so glad the flat worked so well for the 60th birthday. Doug.
Best place to stay!
Perfect location above the coffee shop right on Main St. Amazing deck with great views.
Beautiful and comfortable!
Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Decorah!
Great place to stay!
The location is perfect! I walked downstairs and got my favorite latte for breakfast. The apartment is so cute! We love the upstairs outdoor porch to watch people going up and down the street. We had a parking spot designated just for us, which was perfect. This was my second stay. I have recommended this location and Decorah to several people for a weekend getaway. The shops are great and the Co-op grocery store is great!
We will definitely go back!
We will definitely stay here again.
Lovely flat in a great location!
The Water Street Flat was the perfect place for our family to land during a busy wedding weekend. Comfortable beds, ample comfortable seating, well supplied kitchen and bathrooms and off street parking all made our stay easy and enjoyable.
