Signature Gourmet 3-course Breakfast,
Amazing baths. Modern, Clean, Elegant spaces.


Decorah, Iowa’s beautiful walking/biking trail along the Upper Iowa River, once called Dug Road, was the inspiration for the name, Dug Road Inn.

Our Bed & Breakfast, just blocks from Luther College, is a blend of classic and contemporary style. Our 1860’s Italianate villa features original artwork and custom furnishings in its three guest rooms, two suites and lovely public spaces.

“We arrived at the Dug Road Inn in Decorah and frankly I was shocked. I tell you! I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I try to avoid bed and breakfasts ever since the massive attack of the teddy bears in Maine in 1999. But this place was fabulous! Our newly done room was modern, sharply elegant, extremely comfortable, clean and better than most hotel rooms I have ever stayed in anywhere. The beds and pillows rank in the top five beds (other than my own) of all times.” Maria Rodale, Chairman & CEO. Rodale, Inc.

Relax on the secluded front porch, hike on the trail, tube on the Upper Iowa River, or stroll downtown to Decorah’s many shops and restaurants.

Return indoors to sit next to a glowing fireplace or relax in a jetted tub.

Fill your stay with relaxation, laughter & delicious food. Be as social or private as you wish.

The Dug Road Inn is FOR SALE which is a wonderful business opportunity to own a 5-star rated BnB with Innkeeper’s quarters.
