Garden Room- Thornton House Bed and Breakfast
Hello! Thornton House has been operating as a Bed and Breakfast for over 16 years and we offer private bathrooms, spacious rooms with guest climate controls and a full breakfast every morning in an unparalleled historical setting unique to Lansing. Thornton House served as a Doctor’s office and residence in Lansing for over 100 years and all of that history comes wrapped in an amazing 1873 Italianate home where no guest room shares a common wall with another guest room. It’s quiet and relaxing and close enough to walk to restaurants yet far enough from the river front Iowa Chicago and Eastern train tracks to allow a restful nights sleep. What brought me to this area is what I believe will bring you to this area: it’s unparalleled charm, beauty and friendliness. Lansing, Iowa is situated on what I think is one of the most beautiful parts of the Mississippi River which was designated as a national wildlife refuge in 1924. In the summer months, you’ll experience an abundance of bald eagles, walking and hiking trails with beautiful, Mississippi River vistas- one of which is Mt. Hosmer that starts near the Thornton House B&B. In the fall, you’ll experience the amazing colors we’re known for: reds from sumacs, maples and Virginia creeper, yellows from maples, elms and ash punctuated with bright oranges from other colorful maples. There’s plenty to see and do here with local wineries, plentiful restaurants and a river view visitor center that’s unmatched in this 3 state region. I am happy to help you discover things to do upon visiting that will make your stay to this area as enjoyable as possible! With an IT background working for Cargill in downtown Chicago, I found this area back in 1998 where I maintained a vacation home close to Lansing, IA. When I was able, at age 40, I formally retired here to own and operate the Thornton House which was turned into a beautiful Bed and Breakfast after numerous upgrades designed to offer guests comfortable and relaxing rooms, and a great (real!) breakfast in a historically significant 3 story Italianate offering many river views from the upper floors. Come and see for yourself what has brought me and the many guests to the Thornton House B&B in Lansing, Iowa!
