the room and can't wait to come back when we have more time to relax and
enjoy ourselves rather than our 1:30am arrival. Thanks for making us feel at
home and so comfortable on our first night as husband and wife!"

"My husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary. It was just us two away for a couple nights. We loved the Country Inn, friendly hosts and a beautiful place, very relaxing! Annabelle's Suite was everything and more. We loved lunch at the Taco House across the way. The best meal of course was in the tea room for breakfast. We can't wait to tell our friends and family what a great time we had and we will be back! Thanks so much!"

Although I was here for business, I was able to get some shopping in at the quaint gift shop-loved it! Ann is so personable and makes an absolutely delicious breakfast! Okoboji Country Inn is definitely a hidden treasure, but not for long! We will spread the word!"
"What a delightful B & B. Every detail has been thought about and provided. We
love the Cottage Room. The colors are so restful and peaceful. Good luck with
your "village". It is beautiful and special."

"Here for the Victory Motorcycle Rally! Your inn was such a blessing after the riding and the crowds and the noise! Quiet and comfy. We've stayed in several B & B's over the last few years and found yours to be the most thoughtfully planned of all- from the snacks to the placement of books in the room! Thank you! We will be back, hopefully with more friends next time! May you and your family be blessed."
