Welcome to The Oakwood Inn

The Oakwood Inn is a grand Victorian estate located in the heart of the Iowa Great Lakes. Experience the picturesque views of the gardens, ponds and wildlife. Take a walk along the path and listen to the bullfrogs in the wetlands. You may even see a glimpse of turkeys, a few deer, ospry or the resident groundhog.

All 11 rooms at The Oakwood Inn feature beautiful views of the grounds and have their own full bathrooms and fireplaces. Several of the rooms have luxury whirlpools and there is one 2-room suite on the top level of the home.

A lavish continental breakfast is served each morning featuring vintage family recipes and the estate’s own coffee, The Oakwood Blend – roasted especially for guests of the Inn.

The Oakwood Inn is open year round for your enjoyment.
