Sometimes two people fall in love, get married and say, “Let’s travel the world.” Pete and Teresa say, “Let the world come to us and stay.” We started a new chapter in our lives when we assumed ownership of Heritage Lodge, a beautiful, rural bed and breakfast property just outside of historic Red Oak, Iowa. The elegantly rustic lodge is situated on what was once a dairy farm, where the farmhouse and the dairy barn, now converted to unique apartments, remain. The setting is peaceful, serene, and bucolic.  It is a great place to relax, unwind, and recharge. Your hosts will ensure your comfort.

Owner/ operators are Darwin (Pete) and Teresa Peterson.  Pete was raised on a farm in the vicinity of Red Oak, Iowa (the Villisca / Stanton area) and after being abroad with a career in the military and as a general surgeon for  47 years, is happy to have returned home.  Teresa, also raised on a farm (but in Southeast Iowa / Washington, Iowa) is pleased to return to a rural, spacious setting where her love of entertaining and cooking can be realized.


Heritage Lodge Bed & Breakfast, LLC is the perfect adventure for any occasion!

Whether you are looking for a romantic setting for an intimate get-away or a group gathering, Heritage Lodge can provide accommodations to meet your needs.
