What a refuge in a crazy world! Quiet place, with loving hosts, comfortable beds, spacious gathering room, delicious breakfasts, and just half a block walk to the town's main square. I would highly recommend to anyone coming to Pella.

We had such a wonderful time with Doug and Bev! Bev goes all out for breakfast, we were stuffed. The King’s Chambers was luxurious and very comfortable and the jacuzzi tub made it extra special. Loved that everything was an easy walking distance. Thanks for making our trip memorable!

My wife and I spent our wedding anniversary weekend at this delightful bed and breakfast. The owners were a pure delight to be around and made our stay as good as it possibly could have been. Walking distance to all sites and attractions Pella has to offer. Food was also good. Rooms clean and cozy. Would recommend for any weekend getaway.

We were looking for a nice BnB for a weekend retreat with the leadership group of our church, 4 couples. We wanted a place that wasn’t too far away from Des Moines, and one that was a fun destination at the same time. The Dwelling Place in Pella was the perfect choice. The location is superb, just a half block away from the town square. There was also plenty of parking for all 4 of our vehicles. The 102 yr old house was warm, charming and comfortable. It was nice to see the Craftsman design and several original prices still in pristine condition. The rooms were comfortable and the privacy was just right. The main living room was a quintessential cozy setting for our day of meetings. The Hosts, Beverly and Doug were very warm and welcoming. And the breakfast and mid morning fresh made bread and jam were special and scrumptious. This was exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended.
