About Us

Awarded 'Outstanding Lodging Property' by the Iowa Tourism Office and rated one of Iowa’s 'Top 10 Cozy B&Bs'. When it comes to an enjoyable lake vacation or a quick retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Larch Pine Inn offers the perfect escape for you and your family. With a daily three-course breakfast, whirlpool-style bathtubs and a breezy wrap around, screened-in porch, you’ll have everything you need for a memorable and relaxing getaway.

Located an hour and half from Des Moines, the Inn is situated on half an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens and hosts four guest rooms with private baths in the Main House and the Crow’s Nest - a one-bedroom apartment above the two-stall garage. Larch Pine Inn blends modern amenities with the charm and character of its romantic Victorian roots. All guest rooms are tastefully decorated and fully furnished with a comfortable king or queen size bed, hotel quality bedding, in-room private bathrooms, and so much more.

Once here, the Larch Pine Inn is a perfect home base for all Clear Lake has to offer. Park your car and take a short walk to the most popular attractions - one block to the lake, two blocks to the historic Surf Ballroom, and three blocks to downtown.

Here's what guests are saying: “The stay was perfect! We enjoyed the warm hospitality and cozy feel the've created. It made me think of the Danish concept of ''hygge.'' The deluxe breakfast was fantastic, and the history of the Inn was nice. I've been to many hotels in almost 40 different countries, and thought the Larch Pine was very charming....''
