“We'll definitely be back.”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We just stayed at Pryor House last weekend and absolutely loved it. The Honeywells were lovely innkeepers and the accommodations were top notch. Add to that wonderful breakfasts and you have the perfect experience. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area visiting family members. Mike and Joni Sorensen, Westminster, CO

“Wonderful "find" in Shelby, IA”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Pryor House is a wonderful place to stay in the quiet, rural town of Shelby, IA. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. We stayed in the Bragg Suite which afforded us the luxury of a sitting room, en suite bath and large comfortable bed. Breakfasts were excellent. Our hosts, Pat and Tom, were gracious. The Pryor House is a welcoming site not only for travelers, but for hosting parties. While we were there, Pat's sister had a group of her friends who came back to Shelby for a class reunion gather at the Pryor House. Felt like home -- family and friends. Thank you for a great stay. Hope to see you again.

“The Pryor House B&B provides R&R”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Pryor House B&B was an easy 45 minute drive from the Berkshire Hathaway stockholders' meeting in Omaha, NE. The quiet town of Shelby is surrounded b gently rolling, emerald and black farmland hills. Pat Honeywell, hostess, provided a warm welcome and delicious hot breakfasts. She told an engaging tale of how the historic residence was rescued. Our young grandsons were entertained by toys in the house and a playground in the nearby city park. While most of the adults listened to Buffet and Munger, the kids enjoyed the highly-rated Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to ride bikes on the trail that goes through Shelby.

“What a gem”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

First the owners are amazing. Very friendly and open to helping. I felt like family just walking in. The original wood work and classic style is relaxing. With optional country activities and small town atmosphere, this is a great get away. Highly recommended!

“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 11 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We loved the Victorian charm of the beautiful house. Comfortable, affordable and the hostess is superb! Breakfasts are wonderful and varied and plenty to eat, like living on the farm! The prior House is also a great place to stay if you are sightseeing in the Omaha/Council Bluffs, Iowa area. A short commute to the metro area and a wonderful place to return to in the evening and relax. The rooms are cozy and comfortable with T.V. dvd player and a soaking tub to relax along with a shower if you prefer. We loved it!
