    What a great find

    This is a B&B in a retired but beautifully maintained Fraternity house 3 blocks from the Iowa State University campus SW corner. The property is beautiful. The breakfast was cooked to order on my schedule. I told them I needed to eat at 7 so I could leave to walk to my appointment on campus at 7:30, and it was perfectly on time. Nice hot breakfast plus cereal fruit and yogurt. I loved everything about it. It is self check in and out.

    Ambria checked us in and was very kind and helpful. The entire facility was extremely clean and smelled amazing! The normal breakfast foods, snacks and fruits were available. Rested very comfortably and in the morning a gentleman named John provided us with a fresh cup of fruit while he cooked fresh eggs, ham and toast at no additional charge! What a bonus! Looking forward to returning someday...
