Our Judge Lewis Room is on the main floor (ground level) and is available at $125 per night plus tax.

This room is named in honor of Judge W.H. Lewis, the original builder of the home. Judge Lewis built his home in 1867 and it is here that he and his wife Emma raised their children.  After Emma passed away Judge Lewis married Sarah M. Leonard, and it is believed at that time he “remodeled” the house (which would have included this bedroom) to suit the needs of his new wife – in approximately 1900. Judge Lewis opened Fairmount Nursery here in 1870 where he grew and sold trees, flowers and shrubs of all kinds throughout Iowa. A favorite was the hydrangea. The vintage reproduction wallpaper in this room pays homage for his adoration of these and the many other beautiful flowers he grew here.

This room is on the first floor and has two very comfy pillow-topped twin beds that can be put together for a King. The Judge Lewis room is decorated with vintage and antique furniture, including an antique hide-a-bed (which can be used for a third person for a nominal fee). It also has an attached bathroom with walk in shower. There is a Keurig coffee maker, TV with Netflix, and ceiling fan in the room.

The house and all guest rooms have central air.
