In the Spotlight
July 2022 at the B & B on Broadway
Whether it’s the whir of the fan or the whoosh of the air conditioner, the B & B on Broadway stays cool during Iowa’s summer saunas. The firebrick exterior also helps keep the B & B’s four zones (attic, second floor, first floor and lower level) cool in the summer and warm in the winter. When you hear those fans whir, you can also rest easy knowing the B&B’s air purification system is doing its job to reduce allergens and other airborne particles, including viruses.
Around the House
When you think of attics, you might not think cool or cozy retreat, but that’s what the B & B on Broadway’s Inspiration Suite provides. With lots of light and reading nooks, the suite features a king bed, two twin beds, kitchenette, living room, two-person jet tub, and sauna shower. It’s a wide, open room with its own bathroom.
Victorian era homes often have large attics with beautiful staircases that make them easy to access. They were primarily used for storage and lacked insulation, making them too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter to be comfortable. But they did have charm: slopped walls, exposed brick and wood beams, intriguing windows, and great views.
Prior to its renovation, the B & B on Broadway’s attic spent almost a century storing furniture and heirlooms of the families who lived here. One of our guests who grew up in Decorah shared that it was also a favorite spot for her and her friends to play. We can imagine children playing some great games of “hide ‘n’ seek” among the boxes, or “castle” in the turret. We highly encourage playing games with friends and family, dreaming up new ideas, and creating memories in the Inspiration Suite. Book your stay in the Inspiration Suite today!
July is a busy month in Decorah with family gatherings, weekends with friends, and couple’s retreats. And of course, Decorah’s favorite festival: Nordic Fest. We are booked for Nordic Fest 2022. If you are thinking about Nordic Fest 2023 (July 27-29, 2023), book your stay with the B & B on Broadway today!
With all that attention on July, August is feeling a little lonely. We have lots of availability in August so if you are thinking of a quiet getaway this summer, consider booking in August. We’ll give 10% discounts on rooms booked in August 2022 when you mention this In the Spotlight newsletter.
