We were looking for a quick getaway somewhere different than we've been before. Found this place on TripAdvisor and it had good reviews , so I booked one of the 2 open rooms.. Once we finally found it (gps doesn't take you far enough on the road), we loved it at first glance. I was a little nervous when I...

Beautiful setting on a dead end road. Very quiet, relaxing setting! Place to sit outside and enjoy a fire in the evening. Room was perfect! Breakfast in the morning couldn't have been better! Highly recommended!

We wanted a place to get away for a little R&R as we biked the Heritage Trail in Iowa. This place is the perfect combination of quaint and modern amenities. Super clean and the service was great. We had a lovely time meeting the other guests too.

This was a last minute decision to stay here and we are so happy we did. Phil and Kathy gave us a wonderful list of options for dinner in Dubuque, and we were very happy with the restaurant they recommended. We came back and sat outside around a fire and enjoyed the evening. While we were sitting there a deer...

We arrived late, but Phil and Kathy still met us with a tour and fresh cookies. The rooms are gorgeous, quiet, and accommodating. Nothing was left out. The grounds are gorgeous, and flowers are everywhere. We really enjoyed the solarium and pond while we read. Kathy gave us brochures and recommendations on where to go and Phil's main courses for...

Quiet Walker Lodge was very nice. It started by meeting Kathy and Phill as soon as we arrived. They fun to talk with about the area and were great hosts at the B&B. The lodge was very well kept and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay there and would stay again!

Everything was clean and comfortable in both beautiful lodges. We stayed in the Moonlight and Roses suite in the main lodge. Great bed and very quiet surroundings.
