Property description

The Iowa House is larger than most Bed and Breakfast Inns and smaller than most hotels in Ames, Iowa. Our 15 guest rooms can host up to 34 overnight. Furnishings are an eclectic mixture of past, present and future. Collectibles and period pieces team with task chairs, recliners, flat-screen TV's, free WiFi, guest computer and free off-street parking. Our decor features hand-stitched quilts by Tana's late Mother and Iowa State Fair blue-ribbon quilter Helen Paine, making us a favorite for lodging in Ames, Iowa.
