Memorial Weekend Trip to Spillville Iowa

Steve and I decided to take a little side trip to Spillville, Iowa to tour the Bily Clock Museum. IPTV did a show about 20-25 years ago. Steve's been wanting to go every since. Spillville is about 6 hours from our house, so it wasn't something we could do quickly in a day. When trying to decide what to do with our Memorial Weekend, he came up with this. I love staying in unique places, so found this little gem online, Taylor Made Bed and Breakfast.

Corabelle and Howard are the neatest people. She's a mere 74 years young. Her homemade kolaches are to die for. Each morning you are fed an incredible homemade breakfast. Something akin to what they used to feed the farm hands I am sure. You weren't lacking in hot fresh items. First morning we had raisin french toast, german sausage links, cut up fresh fruit, an egg/ham/cheese scramble,homemade applesauce, hot syrup,rhubarb custard, kolaches and light rye bread. Plenty of good hot coffee, orange juice and ice water the first morning. The second morning was just as good. We'll go back here in the fall for the "Colors" tour of all the leaves turning. We'd like to try the Summer Kitchen next time so we can have a larger bed. I'd go here again and again, Spilleville is an awesome little town. So peaceful, all the homes are well manicured and the people are friendly.
