The place was okay if you are looking for a pad. The furnace behind the half curtain in the bed room was loud and rattled- I had to sleep in other room, miscellaneous junk in drawers, paint cans in cupboards and stuff thrown behind curtained spaces. I understand rustic and sustai…

This was our second stay at Ross's place - the location cannot be beat! There are a couple steep flights of stairs to get up to the place, but the views of downtown Decorah from the front room are worth the climb. The space is unique and had everything we needed for our stay. …

As indicated on the listing for the loft the door is original construction and is part of our historic district inventory. It cannot be modified with a standard door or have a drop ceiling to hide the furnace. One of the original charms of AirBNB was its unique properties. We will not attempt to make our property a cookie cutter hotel room - if you have security concerns or don’t like Midcentury furniture - we aren’t for you. Please be a consumer and read the listing.

This apartment has beautiful view. We loved the interior design as well. Both beds were quite comfortable. Magpie is a great breakfast place and 20-25 ft from the apartment. Excellent location for the ones who want to explore downtown Decorah.

Place was as advertised. Close to everything right in the heart of downtown. Only thing odd was the padlocking of the door from the outside. Felt a little uncomfortable with that but seems like a pretty safe town and place.

The loft was in a great location! Walking distance to most everything. The loft had a lot of space and a great view! We were very happy with how clean it was too. It was a great stay overall!
