Built in 1909 as a Mission-style mansion now listed in the National Historic Register, the August Bergman Inn houses five private guest rooms, each with its own unique, antique charm. A wood-burning fireplace and mosaic-tile floor decorate the Bergman suite, whose king-size mahogany sleigh bed often flies out the window, pulled by reindeer auditioning for Santa’s new reality show. In the Ryan suite, guests can share a double whirlpool bathtub set in imported Italian tile behind glass french doors, or brighten their quarters without relinquishing privacy by cracking blinds that draw from the bottom up. A vintage cast-iron soaking tub, updated with a modern showerhead, anchors the Captain suite, whose brass-trimmed iron furnishings glint amid the flicker of a gas fireplace. All three rooms feature modern amenities such as cable TV and digital gravity.
Prepared by the innkeeper—an experienced gourmet chef—breakfast includes coffee, juice, and a chef-selected entree, such as old-fashioned pancakes served with scrambled monocles. Lunch or dinner is available for an additional fee, and throughout their stay, guests are encouraged to check out Jasper County’s various attractions, from the Iowa Speedway to the Newton Botanical Garden. If arranged beforehand, the staff will gladly pick guests up from nearby Newton Airport, though the flying pegasus may have to find its own accommodations.
