I have stayed at Marsh House on a number of occasions and I have to say that it is absolutely wonderful! The house itself is a treasure, full of antiques and big comfortable rooms with all the amenities. Linda and her husband are fabulous owners, going out of their way time after time to make our stays enjoyable and to meet our needs, be it an extra bed for a Grinnell student needing to get away or a few more guests for their incredible breakfasts. We have found them to go out of their way to be flexible in terms of last minute changes in travel plans. Their rates are very reasonable and their policies more than fair. You will not find a better place to spend a day or a week in Grinnell , Iowa, than at Marsh House. We give it our highest recommendation!
I stayed at the Marsh House while visiting Grinnell, IA over the Memorial Day holiday and I must tell you, I was delighted with everything from the stunning decor of the house with it's abundance of antiques, to the gracious hospitality of owners, Linda & Jim Paulson, to the tastefully prepared breakfasts offered. I plan on returning to the Marsh House every time I come through Grinnell and would highly recommend it to all travelers. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.
My wife and I spent a splendid night at Marsh House. The owner's husband and sons' rescued a neglected old house and brought it back to luxurious grandeur. Linda, the owner, was friendly and accommodating through out our stay. Our room was impeccable, the bed very comfortable and the decor spectacular. She served a delicious breakfast of homemade pancakes, eggs, sausage and fresh fruit. Before leaving we scheduled a return visit. I highly recommend Marsh House!!
We travel quite a bit, both domestically and internationally. We are not Bed & Breakfast people; in fact, we usually prefer the reliable quality and high-level service of a 4 or 5 star hotel when we travel. However, there is no hotel, motel or B&B that we enjoy as much, or that we would rate more highly, than the Marsh House in Grinnell.
