Keeping History Alive in Lenox, Iowa: The Heritage Inn Bed & Breakfast

*If you’re looking to soak in a bed and breakfast this year, then I suggest a road trip into the southwest region of the great State of Iowa. The little town of Lenox is near places like Bedford, Corning, Red Oak, Mount Ayr, Creston and many hilly rides through the countryside. This means you have a wonderful place to stay at in a wonderful community when you’re traveling through scenic SW-Iowa! Our stay at the Heritage Inn Bed & Breakfast was complimentary. The views expressed in this blog post are of our own. Now, let’s Gallivant!

Welcome to SW-Iowa and to this beautiful B&B in Lenox! 300 North Main Street 319-360-2163

Lenox, IA: Taylor County

The Victorian era gave all of us a ton of fascinating properties all over the country and that includes rural Western Iowa. Tucked into the southwest area of this region is the little town of Lenox and it’s one of those off the beaten path treasures that keeps our traveling imaginations going. Inside Lenox is a classic Main Street and on it is the Heritage Inn Bed & Breakfast!

The Victorian era remains and in a purposeful manner here on this beautiful corner of Main and Michigan in Lenox, Iowa. The proud Heritage Inn can be easily found when you get to town. Turn onto Main Street, drive through its business district, and into the neighborhood with this gorgeous home towering into the Taylor County landscape. The grounds are well taken care of by owners and innkeepers, Tim and Barb Gerber, who renovated a dream home into a B&B for visitors to enjoy.
The Heritage Inn B&B brings many travelers into Lenox and they can quickly get into relaxation mode from the moment they arrive. A front porch like this is always inviting.
The Private Suite is a beautifully decorated multi-room escape that keeps the old world feel. You can also enjoy the modernization of your 21st century lifestyle with wifi and a flat screen TV and the ever important clicker joining you on the comfy couch.
They do a heck of a breakfast at the Heritage Inn B&B, but you don’t have to wait until the morning for a fresh cup of coffee. Make it anytime you want inside the Private Suite!
Let the Taylor County sunshine pour into your suite and get that sunny morning going at the Heritage Inn. There’s something about waking up to this scene that makes me want to head back to Lenox.
I automatically like a place that much more when there’s a Christmas tree decorated all year long.
Relaxation at every turn and in every corner at the Heritage Inn B&B. Reading about the history of Taylor County seems like the right thing to do when you’re staying at a historic house in Lenox.
One of the most inviting rooms in every B&B is the dining room. The Heritage Inn has a very memorable one and it made us look forward to the classic reason of why we love visiting these proud homes that welcome all of us travelers.
Crispy bacon, fluffy scrambled eggs, and piping hot waffles. Get that Taylor County Gallivant a strong start and going full steam ahead after a big home cooked breakfast at the Heritage Inn!
And don’t pass up on the cup of fresh fruit. That was my best fancy face ever!

One of the many great things about the Heritage Inn B&B is that it’s walking distance to everything on Main Street-Lenox. Park your car and take some strolls around the neighborhood and enjoy dinner, shopping, cocktails, and the easy going small town atmosphere you’ve been looking for. Or spend every moment inside the Heritage Inn and outside on its inviting porch.

We specialize in small towns and it was our first Gallivant to Lenox, and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to call home for the day. The Gerbers made us feel like we were friends from the get-go, and showed us how excellent they are when it comes to hosting guests. It’s Lenox ambassadors like them that can get folks like us to become regulars to Taylor County. Discover the southwest region of Iowa and get your trip planned. And tell Tim and Barb we said hello. See you again, Lenox!
