In the Spotlight
Fall at the B & B on Broadway
The feeling of fall is in the air at the B & B on Broadway with cool nights, pumpkins on porches, and harvests of apples, peaches, and kale. The tastes of fall are definitely on our breakfast table. Guests enjoy our bacon, cheddar cheese, and kale frittata; peaches & cream muffins; pumpkin spice muffins; apple crumble muffins; apple cinnamon pancakes; and more. After breakfast, there’s time to sip coffee or tea on the porch in autumn’s warm sun and bright colors.
Around the House
We’ve been busy working on steps to porches too! A few years ago, the steep brick step from the sidewalk on Broadway Street to our walkway washed away in a storm. We built two low rise pink cement steps in its place. Guests and neighbors have admired the color and ease of use. The stone retaining wall that borders both sides of these steps still stands. The stone wall was made from stones salvaged from the first Winneshiek County Courthouse built in 1858, and located diagonally (then and now) from the B & B on Broadway.
We are working on designing and building a set of pink cement steps for the back porch. These will be slightly curved with high curved walls so they invite you to walk up or sit down to enjoy the backyard.
Enjoy apples and other fall harvests around Decorah:
• Seed Savers. Stroll through Seed Savers’ historic orchard with over 900 varieties of apple trees.
• Blazing Star. Check out the seasonal vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free menu of this prairie gem.
• Kozi Pie Shoppe. What’s fall harvest without pie?
The Blazing Star and Kozi Pie Shoppe are two blocks from the B & B on Broadway. Biking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking are also just down the road from the B & B.
If you are planning a visit to Decorah this fall, the B & B on Broadway has availability towards the end of October and throughout November. We also have availability if you are planning ahead for Christmas at Luther (December 1-4, 2022). Book your stay today!
See you soon!
