Our Tara Inn

Our Tara Inn is not just a Bed & Breakfast, it is a refuge from modern stresses. Guests are treated like family. Your reservation is a key to tranquility and comfort. You may enjoy just sitting on the deck, watching the corn grow. Or how about a walk in the woods to unwind after a long work week? Just want to lay about and watch TV? Satellite TV provides Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, and HBO. Are you a sportsman? Bring a fishing pole along, we are located close to trout streams and the Mississippi River. Did you bring the boat too? There's no parking problem here. Coming in winter? Bring your Snowmobile - a trail is close at hand. Just want to enjoy the scenery? We are in the heart of Iowa's own "Little Switzerland". Does that give you a picture of our countryside? In Fall Leaf Lookers find fantastic colors here. Guests frequently comment that in all their travels, there is no place as Beautiful as Northeast Iowa. I maybe biased but I think so too! That is why, I invite you to come and stay in the heart of it at Our Tara Inn.

A Full Hot 'Country Breakfast' is served to our guests in the 'Old Granary'. A Buffet Style Breakfast is offered between 7:00 to 9:00 AM. Menu's may vary but guests typically can choose from:   Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Belgium Waffles, Hot & Cold Cereal, Fresh Fruit, Yogurt, and Toast, Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate, Juice, and Milk.

The 'Old Granary' was originally used to store grains fed to the livestock housed below. Today the Granary serves as our Lobby and Breakfast Area. In good weather, breakfast may also be taken on the gazebo, where guests enjoy the view of the rural countryside. Just imagine a view of three states while you enjoy a breakfast of farm fresh scrambled eggs dripping with country butter, or how about a country sized serving of Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits with Sausage Gravy. Yes, Country Living is Good.

Five units to choose from for your stay: The Suite, Runaway Lovers Loft, Fur Traders Loft, The Lodge and The Shangri La.  

Pets are welcome in the two Loft units.

All units have cable/satellite TV and Wireless Internet.
