The SpaceThe River's Bend is located minutes from all local amenities and major employers. As part of the Iowa Greenbelt, we face the Iowa River and are walking distance from downtown shops, restaurants, movie theater, and other services. Our local winery and county nature area are a short drive from the B&B. Local attractions include 2 golf courses, an apple orchard, local community theater, historic society museum, Dow House (period), River Bend Rally, Labor Day Car Show, and the Scenic Empress boat cruise. Guest AccessGuests have access to the living room, formal dining room, parlor, library, billiards room, and all porches (including second floor porch), and all 3/4 acres of grounds and gardens. Our beautiful gardens include many perennials like irises, peonies, tulips, columbine, cone flower, hollyhock, and Coreopsis. We also have nearly 100 flowering shrubs (if the deer didn't eat them!) Interaction with GuestsYour host is a resident at the B&B and is available throughout your stay either in person or by phone. The NeighborhoodWe are located in a residential neighborhood across the Iowa River from the main part of town. The home is in a prime spot on the river and on a promontory overlooking the river and town. The Princess Pizzeria, Gathering Place at the Pines, and "502" provide the best in local cuisine, the Metropolitan Opera House (movie theater) and "503" provide nighttime entertainment, and we have 8 local parks and the Calkin's Nature area to provide for communing with nature. Look up, we have eagles! Getting AroundWe are a 10 minute stroll or 2 minute car ride from downtown. There is ample free public parking in town (we don't have parking meters!) The county-wide "People Ride" and a local taxi can provide other transport accommodation.
