Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles with Praline Sauce…Eggs Mornay…Orange French Toast with Blueberry Sauce. These are some of the breakfast entrees that may await you at the Decker House Bed and Breakfast in Mason City, Iowa. In the evening relax in the first floor parlor, if you’d like. And snack on cookies from the endless cookie jar, always available to guests.
The home, built in 1896, was originally owned by a prominent Mason City meat packer. The Mason City Foundation bought and restored the home and now leases the bed and breakfast to innkeeper Sally Pressly.

Although I didn’t stay overnight at the Decker House, I did enjoy a roasted pork tenderloin dinner when I visited the home with a group of travel writers. (Dinner isn’t available to the general public at the Decker House; however, they are happy to host private dinner parties.)
We were scheduled for dessert elsewhere, so we didn’t get to taste any of Sally’s sweet treats that evening. However, Sally provided delicious chocolate dipped strawberries and cheese straws at an event we attended the day before, so I can attest to her talents in creating confections.
After dinner we toured some of the home’s five guest rooms, all with private baths. The B&B offers a first-floor handicapped-accessible room, three guest rooms on the second floor, and a third-floor suite.
Whether you stay as an overnight guest or attend Decker House special event, you are certain to enjoy the elegant ambiance and the delicious food.
