About

You won’t find a better location for your stay in downtown Decorah than Red’s Retreat & Guesthouse! Perched on a corner lot directly across the street from the famed Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, our 3 level farm house, built in 1914, will comfortably sleep you and 12 additional guests in 5 bedrooms scattered on 3 levels. 3 full baths are conveniently located on each level. Relax in the garden tub with jets in the upper level bath after a long day of sewing, quilting, shopping, hiking, biking or whatever your day consists of in the driftless region of northeast Iowa! Or chill on the front porch watching the hustle and bustle of Water Street or retreat to the private covered back patio to unwind with family and friends.

The converted garage and breezeway offers guests an additional 1,100 square feet of common space to use as you wish. Set up as a quilting retreat, the bright and airy space offers individual sewing tables with comfort chairs, 2 ironing stations and a cutting station. The kitchenette and half bath mean coffee and relief are close by. In the cooler months take advantage of the in-floor heat to keep you and your guests warm and toasty. There are no steps to get into the retreat space and there’s a convenient ramp that takes you from the retreat space into the main level of the house.
