Perfect location in another sweet, sleepy downtown. Walkable to shopping and several great pubs and restaurants. I would not hesitate to call up Sally direct and stay in her spacious rooms and enjoy her delicious full-breakfasts! Honor bar in the basement is a nice touch too! And halls are already decked out for Christmas. Sweet.

We would highly recommend staying here. We stayed in the Iris room for one week. The house itself is beautiful, gorgeous decorations for Halloween. Really well kept and spotlessly clean. Our room was a perfect size for two people and our luggage. Very clean and comfortable. TV and hairdryer in room. The best thing about the decker house is Sally!... More

What a welcoming quiet retreat. I chose this place in my hometown as something different from a hotel. The owner Sally was very nice. The Rose room was lovely with its uncovered veranda and the house so quiet. Had a nice walk to the library and the Meredith Wilson footbridge. Sally even allowed me to invite family to join me...

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at The Decker House. I feel like I just walked into a Ray Bradbury Dandelion Wine chapter. You step into the turn of the Century (1900) atmosphere.

Great B&B. Excellent rooms, very comfortable, plenty of hot water, an oasis in an otherwise unremarkable city. Breakfast was very good, and the owner charming and attentive. Worth staying if you are in the area. Significantly better than surrounding hotels.

Stayed here for a wedding as part of a wedding party. It was beautiful, clean, very welcoming. The food was amazing! I love breakfast and this was the best breakfast I've ever had! The homemade French toast was delicious and the owner made us breakfast extra early on the day of the wedding.

This was a perfect spot to meet friends from a distance, to chat and to explore the community. We loved having the small, but very fine art museum 1 block away, and 2 fine restaurants also within walking distance.
