Hotel’s Location near Eagle's Nest in Decorah, Iowa
The hotel’s location is near the best sights in Decorah, Iowa. People flock from around the nation to see Decorah’s resident Bald Eagles' nest, and nature lovers will also love the number of parks close by. Dunning’s Springs has a picturesque 200-foot waterfall, and adventurous guests may consider going to the Ice Cave Hill Park or canoeing on the Upper Iowa River. Outdoor activities are even closer, as the Country Inn & Suites is the only hotel directly on the new Trout Run Trail. This 11-mile loop crosses over trout streams five times and is perfect for biking. The hotel has bike racks, trail maps and trail packages available for interested guests. Decorah’s liberal arts school, Luther College, is also close by— but you can also pursue a less formal education about artisan wines by taking the guided tour of the Winneshiek Winery. You’ll have a comfortable stay at the Country Inn & Suites, but think about getting out and enjoying Decorah while you’re passing through.
