About the property

The Dwelling Place B&B

Our guests tell us our B&B is one of the best ever! You will find beauty, comfort, peace along with delicious food! Upon entering The Dwelling Place you will be stepping into the 1918 elegance of a Craftsman style home, completely updated in 2012. Refresh your spirit, soul and body surrounded in tranquility. Our home invites you to relax, take your shoes off and sit awhile! You can feel at home, while here, and leave feeling refreshed. A comfortable chair for relaxing, and books or music to soothe your soul. Come sit by the fireplace put your feet up relax enjoy. Bottled water is always available.

The original house where Pella's founders came from the Netherlands, is just behind our house. Visit the Tulip gardens with 25,000 tulips in the spring, and flower gardens in summer.

We were thrilled to be honored by The Pella Historical Trust Society for the restoration and historical preservation of the house in 2013.

With both Doug and Beverly experiencing restoration in their personal lives because of Jesus love and transformation power, we too desire others to experience His great love for them.

Come enjoy a beautiful lodging place where you can enjoy a visit to Central College, a Vermeer Business trip, or ladies a visit to the quilt shop and others shops. Elegance and hospitality will meet you at the door, as you take a step back in time, with all the modern conveniences.

And only 1-2 blocks from everything, shopping, dining!!

We are located just 20 minutes off of exit 173 on Interstate 80. It turns into Main Street in town and if you get to the first stop light you have gone too far. Our home is 1block north of the stop light just before the city square and businesses on Main Street.

Our location is great for walking to shops and restaurants and flower gardens and museums.

If coming from the west or Des Moines area take exit 40 off of hwy. 163 and turn left, go approx. 2 miles to

Main Street and turn left. We are the 4th house on the left.
