Welcome to the Dug Road Inn.

Set in an 1870's historic Italianate home, the Dug Road Inn is located two blocks from downtown Decorah and the scenic Oneota River Trail.  Nestled on a hill surrounded by towering pines, Dug Road Inn provides a beautifully elegant and relaxing getaway. It's the ideal location for your small to medium size wedding.

The elegant grounds can easily be transformed to a wedding site.  Gather in a circle under the pines for a simple service, or set up a beautiful canopy for a more formal affair.
