The Best Bed & Breakfasts in Iowa and the Midwest
Taking a little weekend getaway this year? Here are some great places you can stay!
When it comes to reviews, Yelp is one of the most popular sites that people visit, especially when it comes to travel! The company recently put together a list of the best Bed & Breakfasts in all 50 states based on data from their site. The page reads:
"We identified businesses in the bed and breakfast category, then ranked those businesses using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews."
I was happy to discover that, based on these factors, the top bed & breakfast in the state of Iowa is right here in the Corridor! The Brown Street Inn, located at 430 Brown Street in Iowa City, was chosen as the winner.
According to the Brown Street Inn's website, the B&B is located inside a 1913 Gambrel Cottage Style Mansion in the Brown Street Historical District. They have six rooms available, including the Red Room, the Blue Room, the Yellow Room, the Green Room, the White Room, and the Suite. Each of the room contains a queen or king size bed, a private bathroom, individually-controlled air conditioning, a fridge, a TV, wi-fi, and more. Guests are also welcome to spend time on the porch, in the living room, in the dining room, or in the library. A continental breakfast is provided Monday through Friday, but on weekends there is an additional hot breakfast option.
The latest update on the B&B's Facebook page says that all guests must be vaccinated. You can check out room availability and rates online HERE.
Another popular weekend getaway for Iowans is the beautiful city of Galena. Well, Galena happens to be home to the top-rated bed & breakfast in the state of Illinois! The Inn at Irish Hollow is located at 2800 S Irish Hollow Road and has six different options when it comes to accommodations. Check out some of the GORGEOUS photos on their website HERE!
