We had a great time. The apartment is great. Loved the pool table. All the little extras (e.g., cooking oil, q-tips) that were provided were great too!

The Loft is in the perfect location

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The Loft is in a perfect location and for those of you riding your bikes on the trails you have the ease of using a garage to store your bikes in and the ease of access to the trails. It is the perfect place for two couples or a family of 4 to spend their time. The only drawback was that it is close to the neighbors and hotel guest that go outside to smoke, so keeping the windows open for the nice breeze was not an option.

The place to stay in Decorah

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My family and I have stayed in various accommodations in Decorah while our daughter attended Luther College, and while each was nice, The Loft by far ranks as the best place to stay while visiting Decorah. The location on Water Street couldn't be better. Down a flight of stairs and you are in the heart of the charming shops and restaurants the town has to offer. Luther's campus and the river is only a very short car or bike ride away. The living area is spacious and inviting, and is appointed with a billiard table. The kitchen and dining area is roomy and stocked with everything you may need. The bedrooms are conveniently located upstairs and are good-sized. A two car garage with laundry facilities completes the package. As an added bonus, the owners were a pleasure to deal with. Simply put, if you are planning on a stay in Decorah, always check to see if The Loft is available first.
