The 1900 Inn
1033 26th St  Des Moines, IA 50311
The 1900 Inn was a single family residence for about 68 years. It was then made into five apartments like many large older homes in a college area. By 2006 it was unoccupied and slated to be torn down or renovated. 
Jane and I had spent several months looking for the right house to live in and operate a bed and breakfast. Having almost given up, we decided to look for one more day. Our realtor showed us four homes leaving this one for last.
"I'm almost afraid to show it to you because it's in such poor shape." he said. Two steps in the house Jane and I looked at each other and said, "This is it."
The house was completely redone inside and out with all new utitlities and fixtures. Our history truly began in 2007.  Our goal is to give our guests a "soft place to land."
This was the view.
This was the vision!
Relax in the comfort of our library.
