The LaFollette Room is on the second floor. This room features two very comfy pillow-topped twin beds. Beautiful, original hardwood floors set the stage for the vintage reproduction wallpaper and antique table and chairs. The attached bath includes a shower only and is also decorated with antiques and vintage era wallpaper. Your private bath comes complete with shampoo, conditioners, body wash, hand soap and hairdryer.
The LaFollette Room is named after Dr. & Mrs. Robert G. LaFollette, the second owners of the estate following the Lewis family. The LaFollette family purchased the home from the Hartley family in 1984. Here they raised their family and “felt blessed to be caretakers of this historic property.” Mr. LaFollette was a veterinarian in Winterset for two years before starting a career with the USDA as a federal meat inspector. He was a talented craftsman and enjoyed making canoes by hand. Mrs. LaFollette was a science teacher for the Winterset School district. She loved horses and was an avid gardener. They both had a great love for the land and this property that they called home for over 30 years.
