No other property in downtown Decorah boasts views from literally every window.

Beautifully decorated flat.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great, central location. The property has been well furnished and decorated. It could use a little more noise proofing. When there is a band downstairs,you will be listening, too. Luckily, we enjoyed the music! I would stay at this property again!

Great Property and Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

As VRBO owners (#127598) ourselves, we appreciate other owners that strive to do it right, and we can say that these guys have done it right. The apartment has everything necessary for a great stay, the owners were great to work with, and the location is convenient to everything in Decorah.

Exactly as pictured, would stay there again

  • 4 of 5

We were in town visiting my husband's family and needed a nice place for 6 of us to stay. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed. Owner was great. Great location in town. My only complaint is that there are no blinds in the bedrooms. Our bed faced the street which has a bright cross walk sign that flashed the entire night. Otherwise, the flat was perfect. If we are ever back in Decorah, we will stay here again.
