The Brass Lantern Has Closed Its Doors
Effective August 24, 2019

The Innkeepers at The Brass Lantern must sadly announce that the B&B is closing. We have had a wonderful 24 years hosting all of you, but for health reasons are no longer able to keep up with servicing the rooms and pool.

The property has been sold and the new owners do not plan to reopen.

 Welcome to The Brass Lantern

Pool Terrace Beside the Pool

The Brass Lantern, located in lush rolling countryside, is the only B&B in Iowa featuring a separate guest house complete with a 40-foot heated indoor pool for year-round pleasure and relaxation.

The large, well-appointed terrace overlooks the heated pool and provides a dining and entertainment area with comfortable wicker furniture, big-screen Dish TV, DVD, VCR, and stereo CD player. The adjoining, fully-furnished kitchenette includes a beverage-stocked refrigerator and filled cookie jar.

Air-conditioned guest rooms opening onto the pool terrace are tastefully furnished with your comfort in mind, including queen beds with luxury linens, sitting areas with sofa and easy chairs, telephone, Dish TV, DVD, VCR and stereo, and a private bath with luxury toiletries and linens.

Desert Room The Desert Room

At the end of the terrace, to the left of the kitchenette, the Desert Room features a fireplace and queen size four-poster bed. It also has a queen size sofa bed for two additional guests.

The Desert Room has direct access to the kitchenette and its own private bath with rain shower and bubble tub.

Garden Room The Garden Room

The Garden Room is to the right of the kitchenette. It features a fireplace and queen size canopy bed plus a queen size sofa bed. The remodeled private bathroom includes a tub with a full-body massage shower.

Like the Desert Room, the Garden Room has direct access to the shared kitchenette.

The Gallery (not pictured) is nearest the entrance, to the right of the Garden Room. It has two twin beds. It is available at a reduced rate and must be rented along with at least one of the other rooms, because it does not have a separate bath.


Guests staying at the Brass Lantern Bed & Breakfast Inn are served a gourmet breakfast featuring house specialties. Breakfast is served poolside, at a time of guests' choosing.
