Charming is Relative Oct 05, 2010
It started out as a weekend getaway and I felt the need to getaway from the weekend. While the architecture of the victorian style home was intriguing and charming, the owner of the establishment was not.
I confess I was lured into this having never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast previously but having loved the Hostals in Europe. However, these venues are not equal. Hostals in Europe are generally set in the bigger cities where there are many options to do things. This Bed and Breakfast was set in a small town with not much to offer however charged up to 5 times as much as the Hostals.
In fairness, there are antique furniture shops in the nearby town of Walnut, Iowa. So you could use this Bed and Breakfast as a hub for a day trip of antiquing or perhaps drive to find the covered bridges in Madison County.
However, since antiquing is not our priority and considering the price, I would have flown to Denver for skiing or hiking.
lesson learned for me. The choice is up to you.
