I'm usually not a big fan of the B & B experience, at least in the states. The Walking Iron was like staying in a museum. The history of it is well documented and presented. Be sure to check out their website. The bathrooms are refreshingly modern, even had a whirlpool tub with dual shower heads. The whole place was...

This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast. The Walking Iron exceeded our expectations. The home was beautiful! We stayed in the Alsie's Retreat room. The decor was lovely and the room included an electric fireplace, very comfortable bed and linens, Keurig coffee maker and a whirlpool tub. The only issue I can see being a problem...

We stayed for two nights which felt like a nice, long vacation. Our room was big, cozy and has a great bathroom. The owners did a great job fixing the place up and the historical photos are a great touch. Great location, pretty surroundings and great hosts.

My wife and I stayed here December a quick getaway for Christmas weekend. This was an absolutely charming B&B (my favorite so far). More than normal amount of amenities. We stayed in the Doctor's Study, which is extremely large and also extremely quiet. Very large double shower, a separate room with whirlpool and sitting area. The house is a step...

My husband and I spent a night here in the Clara's Veranda room. This room was so pretty, and we had an amazing night's sleep. We'd love to revisit. The bath was large enough for two, which was a lovely way to unwind. We also used the sauna in the basement and thought that was wonderful. The house itself is...

We stayed here for one night during the week. Room was nicely appointed and clean. Bathroom was luxurious. The owners have taken great pride in restoring this hidden gem. Breakfast was delicious. We had dinner at The Old Feed Mill and would highly recommend it as well.

This is our 3rd visit to Walking Iron. It is our favorite Bed and Breakfast. It is in a sleepy town, but there are things to do close by. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is awesome, and we always seem to have a wonderful conversation with other guests. This year we visited House on the Rock, about...

It's hard to imagine a better place to stay anywhere around here. The Walking Iron has the amenities you want in a luxurious stay away from your own home. The history of the old home is well displayed and beautiful. The grounds are wonderfully maintained and a joy to walk around And, of course, there's the food! The biggest problem...

Stayed in the Doctor's Study which was fantastic. Great decor and loved the double shower and whirlpool. The location was great as we walked to everything in the city-Microcar Museum, church, restaurant, and the historic downtown. Breakfast was excellent and held us til dinner at The Old Feed Mill.
