Our experience at Brenda's was wonderful. We had many members of my family in the spacious home. It was relaxing, like being at home but without the responsibility of clean up or cooking breakfast. Brenda was such a wonderful host. Breakfast was yummy. It's nothing like waking up to the smell of bacon wafting through the house. The kids loved the animals on the property. Although one of my nieces was afraid of dogs, she and Brenda's dog became friendly by the end of the visit. My niece is still proud of her interactions with Brenda's dog. She was excited to tell her classmates about the "castle" she stayed in over the weekend. The only thing that would have improved my stay is if I was able to get home in time to experience sitting around the fire in the backyard. Our days were packed so we did not get back until very late in the night. If you are in the area, I would recommend staying at Brenda's.

As the owner of So Dear To My Heart Bed & Breakfast, I invite to you come and share my home and some delicious food. My little farmstead consists of a 100 year old Craftsman style home situated on 4 acres in the beautiful Iowa countryside. My family includes chickens, horses, a miniature donkey, cats and a dog. My passions are gardening, cooking, animals and my guests. I love to meet new people, share stories and make new memories. Here's hoping that you will come and visit me some day soon!
