Located on the 3rd floor overlooking Water Street, the Loft @ 128 offers a relaxing oasis for you to explore all that Decorah has to offer. Furnished with mid-century furniture and remodeled using reclaimed materials, this sustainable space is very comfortable and light with beautiful bay windows. The building was built by James Relf shortly after the civil war where he operated a general store.
His son James T. Relf operated a prolific photography studio on the 2nd floor. In 1894 the space was rented by A. Renaas & Otto Solberg as a photography shop. In 1898, MO Moran established the first phone service in Decorah on the 3rd floor where the loft is located.
There is a microwave for heating up your coffee or take out from the 21 restaurants within walking distance of the Loft.
Downtown Decorah has a small town feel, but there are plenty of sites to see, stores to visit, and restaurants to try. Activities such as shoe shopping, visiting the local food co-op or simply getting some ice cream can all be done within walking distance of the Loft.
Walking is the easiest and most relaxing way to get around downtown Decorah, but biking is also a great option. Decorah has an 11 mile bike trail that takes you through town and out on a beautiful loop around town. The Downtown business district is equipped with several large bike racks for you to use at any time. If you wish to travel outside of town, Decorah has a full service taxi system.
