The Old Bakery Guest House is located on the second floor of Teslow's Formalwear in downtown Waukon, Iowa. It gets its name from the building's history, which served as the town's bakery from the mid 1950s until 2001. This space has been entirely renovated to bring it up to current standards, however special care has been taken to keep many of the original 1914 elements such as hardwood floors, arched windows and high ceilings. The space is comfortable and inviting and has the capacity to comfortably accommodate 8 - 10 people. There are 4 - 5 bedrooms/sleeping areas, two bathrooms, two full kitchens and a large living room and entrance hall. If needed, it can be divided into two separate units; (1) The Long John Loft with one queen bed and a day bed or (2) The Cinnamon Roll Suite with one queen bed and two full size beds.

The Devitt House is located at 103 First Avenue SW in Waukon, Iowa. It has a great downtown location, just adjacent to the main entrance of St. Patrick's Catholic Church and is a convenient walk to many things this fine community has to offer. The house itself was one of the first in the community and although the "newer" section was built in the early 1880s, the original section is civil war era. Again this home has many unique details including peaked windows on the second floor, a unique handmade circular style staircase and old original painted pinewood floors throughout. It can comfortably accommodate about 8 people with four separate bedrooms. (two on the main floor and two on the second floor). It also features two separate living room areas (one on each level), two separate bathrooms (one on each level) plus a small formal dining room and kitchen downstairs. It gets its name from its previous owner, Gertrude Devitt who lived there for approximately 70 years and while doing so operated a hat shop from the 1940's until about 1970.
