Mason House Inn

(Or, What is there to do?)

                 Canoe Trip idea:

  • Spend the night before at the Mason House Inn. 

  • A day of canoeing on the Des Moines River (your choice of starting and ending point).  Hawkeye canoe rental includes oars and life vests, drop off and pick up service.  Call them at (319) 293-3550 or (319) 293-3897 to make arrangements.

  • Lunch:  Pack a picnic to take with you or stop in Keosauqua or Bonaparte at one of the quaint restaurants.

  • Supper:  We recommend Bonaparte's Retreat restaurant for a great steak dinner, or the Riverbend in Keosauqua for pizza or hamburgers.

  • Then, spend another restful night at the Mason House Inn, to recuperate from all your fun.
