While the boys camped out, the ladies stayed in this lovingly restored Victorian home. We had all three bedrooms on the second floor and the shared use of a very large bathroom with a big bathtub. Each bedroom was furnished with beautiful Victorian furniture and comfortable seating. We were encouraged to use the living areas on the first floor which... More

All hotel rooms were booked long before the NCAA Division 3 Indoor Track and Field Championships, so we needed to be creative, so we looked into the Marsh House. What an AMAZING experience for my athlete (who ended up 3rd in the USA in the 60m Dash) and myself. Linda went out of her way to be sure each breakfast... More

I recently hit the jackpot when I found the Marsh House to have rooms available for my last minute visit to see my daughter at Grinnell College. We shared the Master Suite and were quite comfortable. Linda ( the proprietor) greeted us on arrival with cookies about to be popped in the oven. It is a cozy Victorian home that... More

We were in Grinnell for the wedding of a close family friend. We shared the Marsh House with members of the bride's family. Because we had all three rooms, we felt as if we were part of "wedding central". It was a beautiful home and Linda, the owner, thought of everything from delicious breakfasts to bringing a door hanger for... More

We took two of the three rooms for the night before a college tour. The house is just lovely, beautifully restored and full of gorgeous antiques and old books. I love the (shared) bathroom with a claw foot tub set in the middle of it. The largest room has a private bathroom, but that was already taken. The fresh fruit... More

We visited to explore Grinnell College for a high school junior. I don't normally stay at B and B,s but Marsh House looked beautiful on the web and was right near the college. Oh, wow, how lucky were we! Linda is so kind and accommodating. The house itself is so beautifully restored --- to every last detail, and then some!... More

This B&B left nothing to be desired. We enjoyed a warm welcome in a beautifully appointed house, with a delicious breakfast where we were joined by our hosts Linda and Jim. Our bedroom was spacious, the bed comfortable and the bathroom featured a treasure of Victorian touches. We like to try different B&Bs when we travel, but when we are... More
