We are a mother-son team who have spent several years restoring the historic Goeppinger Building on Story Street in Boone, Ia to its original 1905 architecture. The Goeppinger building was erected on a lot that was once the home of the European Hotel. The hotel burned down, the lot was purchased by the Goeppinger family and the three story structure was completed in 1905. It originally housed four store fronts on first floor, the Goeppinger offices on second floor and a lodge on third floor. The lodge was converted into six upscale studio apartments in 1935. For ten years, we operated the business much the same as it was operated the past 100 years. In 2017, the decision was made to rethink our business plan and open a boutique inn. This year, as apartment leases end, apartments are updated and offered as boutique studio suites for guests, with a focus on extended stay guests. The Story Street Inn, located in the Goeppinger building, has much to offer guests. Bellucis’s Pizza house has been in the building since 1965 and is known for excellent Italian cuisine. Houndstooth Haberdashery offers a complete line of men’s vintage apparel and made to order men’s suits. Kelly’s Salon 908 is well known in the area for excellence in hair care, offering cuts, styles, color and perms. On second floor, Modern Boudoir, owned by well known photographer, Cassie Moul, offers photography designed to empower women and provide affirmation of their beauty and goodness. We hope you will enjoy all that the Story Street Inn has to offer. But, there is much to do outside of the Goeppinger Building, as well. You are just steps away from the Boone Movie Theater where you can enjoy newly released movies and concessions for much less than theaters in neighboring cities. A walk down Story Street will take you past a variety of antique stores, dress shops, the museums, restaurants and consignment stores. The Boone Scenic Valley Railroad offers train rides through the Des Moines River Valley. The city parks are some of the best in the state. Seven Oaks Recreation has downhill skiing in the winter and canoeing and kayaking in the summer. Ledges State Park is just a few miles south of Boone where hiking and picnicking can fill the hours of an entire day. Ames is just a few miles away and the Story Street Inn will provide economical lodging for those who enjoy ISU sporting events. We look forward to sharing our historic inn, where you will enjoy lots of space, comfortable beds with quality linens, great amenities and all the comforts of home! Our historic building is our “Downtown Abbey”.
