The Loft is in the perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The Loft is in a perfect location and for those of you riding your bikes on the trails you have the ease of using a garage to store your bikes in and the ease of access to the trails. It is the perfect place for two couples or a family of 4 to spend their time. The only drawback was that it is close to the neighbors and hotel guest that go outside to smoke, so keeping the windows open for the nice breeze was not an option.

The place to stay in Decorah

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in various accommodations in Decorah while our daughter attended Luther College, and while each was nice, The Loft by far ranks as the best place to stay while visiting Decorah. The location on Water Street couldn't be better. Down a flight of stairs and you are in the heart of the charming shops and restaurants the town has to offer. Luther's campus and the river is only a very short car or bike ride away. The living area is spacious and inviting, and is appointed with a billiard table. The kitchen and dining area is roomy and stocked with everything you may need. The bedrooms are conveniently located upstairs and are good-sized. A two car garage with laundry facilities completes the package. As an added bonus, the owners were a pleasure to deal with. Simply put, if you are planning on a stay in Decorah, always check to see if The Loft is available first.

Prize place in Decorah

  • 5 of 5

The Loft is such a prize place to stay while in Decorah! Loved the "hip" decor complete with pool table and record player with bluetooth speakers! Wonderfully stocked kitchen, many books, games & DVD's along with life's little necessities! Bedrooms with very comfortable furniture and beds; really liked having 2 full bathrooms with each bedroom. Very clean ... all environmentally friendly products used. Owner responded to email questions promptly. As a Decorah native, this will be my top choice as a "home" when returning.

Lovely loft downtown

  • 5 of 5

This clean, well cared for loft worked perfectly for our short trip to Decorah. The main level is large and open. The bedrooms (2) each have their own bathrooms. This property is well stocked and located on a Main Street of Decorah. Mabes Pizza next door, is very good. Also includes your own garage which is very handy during the cold, snowy winter months!
