The house was very spacious and had beautiful views of the river valley. It has nice access to Decorah yet is out of town in a scenic setting.

A MARVELOUS weekend at Barbara's Valley View B&B !

  • 5 of 5

Her house is so wonderful and we filled it with two groups of relatives in town for a Luther College/ Decorah wedding. I highly recommend both of her units (Valley View and Garden View) to everybody reading this. We'll be back -- we know. Bird-feeders by the windows were so fun to watch. Gorgeous home (we were in the upstairs Valley View unit) with Ev-er-y-thing we needed -- all kitchen gear and linens and so much more. All clean and as described, and wonderful walking trails. Such views of the Valley! We met their son Ross who lives nearby and came to unlock the connection between units since we are all family.

We are Contented and happy renters! Thank you, Barbara and family!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Windemere. Our family had the entire property, which worked well.

We loved watching the birds, which were extraordinary! The quiet county setting was wonderful.

Long week end

  • 3 of 5

The house was very nice and the view from the patio deck is awesome. We rented the upstairs portion of the house which was nice. The downside to renting is if you do not rent the entire house others will rent the remainder and it is not a sound proof house. During our stay, three couples rented the basement and the noise level was very high. So if you rent this, take a large group and rent the entire house otherwise we do not know who is renting the other part and it can lead to unwelcome noise.

Owner's Response: The two levels of our home are separated (or joined) by a common stairway with a solid wood door at the bottom of the steps. This door has a noise reducing threshold. Other than that doorway, the home is quite soundproof. We will investigate installing another layer of sound proofing at that door which should solve noise distraction.

Gorgeous Scenery

  • 5 of 5

My Grandma and my 2 of my bridesmaids stayed here the night before our wedding. It was like a little hide away. It had everything we needed. The sights were amazing! I really cannot wait to come back to the beautiful place with my husband! (=
