Love this B&B. I stayed in suite 3. It was roomy and the bed was so comfortable. The whole home is beautifully decorated. Tim and Jane make you feel at home and are very accommodating to your needs. The best part was the amazing breakfast-coffee delivered to your room, then a fresh locally sourced breakfast at their beautifully set dining...

Tim and Jane were very friendly gracious hosts. The place was clean and charming. The garden room was very romantic with its whirlpool tub. They offered scented bath salts soaps and candles. Chocolates and waters were available. The breakfast was delicious and Jane catered to gluten free needs. They gave excellent dinner recommendations and were a pleasure to talk to.

Jane and Tim were most congenial. Breakfasts were outstanding! Room was comfortable and cozy. We especially liked watching the birds, squirrels and rabbits out our window! The home is nicely appointed and the decor fits the name of the inn. The landscaping around the home is very nice. We would definitely stay there again.

We spent one night with Jane and Tim last Saturday. We had booked one of the smaller of three rooms, and upon our arrival, Tim told us that the couple who had booked the larger room canceled, so we were upgraded at no charge to the largest room. The room was comfy and decorated with period pieces, and we both...

We stayed here for my girlfriend's birthday while visiting from out of state. We had private parking which was nice; the neighborhood is definitely older but we never felt unsafe (as some have mentioned). Downtown was only minutes away so this was convenient for us. Breakfast was good; the owner even shared the scone recipe with us. Definitely worth the...

My brother and sister and I occupied the B&B with family members for 4 nights and had a great time with Jane's good breakfasts, comfy rooms, and living room conversations and porch conversations. We recommend The 1900 Inn to all. We were reminded of our wonderful growing up in Des Moines. With many thanks to Tim and Jane............

I stayed here for two nights and loved it. Jane is very friendly and welcomed me warmly. The location is great, the room is very comfy and large bathroom (room 3). Her fresh breakfast was delicious. Of the five places I stayed on this trip, this was definitely the best!

Our stay at the 1900 Inn in Des Moines was fabulous! We rented two of the three rooms available and both were of top notch quality. Attention to detail is obvious everywhere with many thoughtful touches. Cleanliness is outstanding! The linen was top notch, the beds comfortable, and the entire inn was exquisite! Not to mention the breakfast which was...

We were traveling across country and had booked this stop many months ago. We were excited to stay because it looked lovely. However, our expectations were FAR EXCEEDED as Jane and Tim were the most perfect hosts.

“The master suite is, by far, the largest and has the largest bathroom. The AC kept the room very cool, but we also appreciated the ceiling fan. It was also large enough for the four of us to hang out in after dinner out.”
