  • Their home is one of the most soft, peaceful homes I have ever been in. It feels very comfortable. Decor was in excellent taste. The hosts were warm, inviting, but not intrusive. The front bedroom was very cozy, although it had some street noise, it wouldn't bother most people. Also, it was well heated, which can be a definite plus in Iowa.

  • Burt's historic house is a very nice place to stay and great accommodations. Guests willing to visit and talk with him and his wife will have a memorable, wonderful time. And Fairfield is an interesting town.
