Located in the heart of the midwest in Denison, Iowa, the Carey House Inn, a Queen Anne cottage design of the architectural firm of George F. Barber, is officially listed on The National Register of Historic Places.  The house was built for John Carey, a mayor responsible for exceptional development of the city of Denison in the early 1900’s and Marietta Greek Carey, born in 1856 in Crawford County, Iowa to a pioneer family. This graciously restored home, built circa 1893, has original southern pine and oak floors, original woodwork, a beautiful staircase, and pocket doors.

The Carey House Inn presents an opportunity to escape the modern lifestyle as you relax in a home a world apart without TV, telephone, and internet.  Forget your cares, as you relax to music from yesteryear, read a book or play a game of cards as you sip hot chocolate or tea.  



    The Cheryl Lee room features a double brass bed, antique writing desk and lace curtains.

    Marietta's room features antique furniture, Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper and an adjacent sitting room with skylight.

    Occupants of either room will have their own private bathroom and shower off the hallway. A child’s bedroom with a twin bed, across the hall from Marietta's room, is available for an additional $35 per night.
