Native Iowa Wines
Our bed and breakfast is located in the Upper Mississippi Valley Wine Region. Here in the Northeast we have the beautiful scenic Iowa Wine Trail. Wineries can be visited almost daily and visitors can sample award winning wines and sparkling ciders. Our region has soils, slopes and aquifers well suited for irrigation drainage, circulation and sun to produce the best grapes. Here at Quiet Walker Lodge we offer for sale some of the best of our Native Iowa Wines. So, as you spend time here at the lodge, consider purchasing some of our Iowa wine to enjoy! This year we are featuring Tabor Wines from Baldwin. Tabor Winery is the oldest estate winery in Iowa and produces many award winning wines.
Here at Quiet Walker Lodge, we have two trails located in the forest reserve. The Julian trail is our short walk on the west end of the property. We just planted 11 new trees of Autumn Blaze maple. In the next several years it is our hope to continue to plant more trees in this area for guests to enjoy a picnic under the maple trees. Our second trail is the Fox-Sax trail. Named after the Native Americans who once inhabited this area, this trail is somewhat steeper and cuts through the forest reserve. The lodge also features a song bird garden with pathways and a large log bench to sit and enjoy the birds.
The Heritage Trail
If you are looking for a longer trail experience, consider the Heritage Trail. Located a minute from the lodge, this trail runs 27 miles between Durango and Dyersville. The crushed-limestone trail follows an old railroad line that was used by the Chicago Northwestern. Many visitors enjoy biking the trail and looking at many remnants of the area's milling and mining ventures.
