Simply put, at Quiet Walker Lodge, you will feel like home.  This beautiful, rustically charming bed and breakfast is nestled in the woodlands near Dubuque, Iowa.  This romantic property will indulge your romantic senses, just as the nature around you will indulge your soul.


The lodge features ten beautifully quaint rooms within its walls.  Each room features a different design, character, and atmosphere. Each room is tastefully and lovingly decorated in Native American decor, with many featuring those indulgent romantic extras.  Bubbling whirlpools for two will soak your cares away.  Luxurious bath robes will be waiting to relax in afterwards.  A warming fireplace will be glowing for you to end your night in front of, with that chilled glass of wine.


The Bella Vita room is extra special, with its own floor to ceiling waterfall. Relax, breathe, and in each others arms, fall asleep to the meditative sounds of the water.

The surrounding gardens are a beautiful and relaxing place to spend some time.  Take a walk.  Enjoy a drink together.  Read a good book.  Or just talk.


To top it off, the warm hospitality at the lodge offered by the incredibly is a stand out.  These caring and gracious hosts will be the icing on your already perfectly romantic getaway, in this pristine area of the state.


The surrounding area is stunning, and is close to the Mississippi River. Beautifully rugged hills, limestone gorges and breathtaking vistas of the Mississippi Valley await you.  The history of the area is deep and rich with Native American stories and lives.


Whilst you're there, it's worth learning about some of the history.  The lodge make a lovely effort to honor past tribes who once walked this part of the country.


This is a perfect escape for those who want a quiet, nature filled getaway - to just take it easy and relax.


The Wakatanka House is home to a relaxing and peaceful solarium and Koi fish pond that you can take some time out in.  There is also a small library of books that you can enjoy during your stay.  Spend the days as you please, the main thing is that you are together.


Everyone likes to be spoilt with surprises every once in a while, so make sure you have a look at the romantic extras you can have waiting in the room upon your arrival.  Beautiful local wine, gorgeous flowers and chocolates, or delicious cheese platters can be ordered to just add that little something.


For those who love to just stroll hand in hand through the beauty of nature, the lodge have two onsite walking trails which will take you through beautiful sections of the surrounding forest.  Take some time to explore these, and you will come back revitalized with the energy of the forest.
