We had a fantastic stay at The Loft. Everything was as it was pictured, all the comforts of home plus more. Having eggs, homemade bread, homemade jam & coffee provided is a huge plus. And tasted awesome. The air tub is also a huge bonus, we absolutely loved it. It's in a quiet setting in a charming town. Highly recommend...

Thank you Bonnie, for taking time to write the review. I will send you details of the soaking bath soon. We spent many months researching to make it more "Japan-like".

This was our first visit to the area and to the Loft...and it won't be our last! The Loft was so much more than we ever expected and it was so relaxing, a nice change of pace. You can tell there was a lot of thought put into the design of the Loft and the little "extra's" like the Japanese...

About the neighbourhood
Asahi Loft of Harmony is on the edge of the picturesque community of Harmony. Only 5 blocks from the center of town, just off Highway 52 and halfway between Decorah, Iowa and Lanesboro.
Fall and Winter have become our 'busy season' with cross county skiing, hiking and snow shoeing replacing the bikes. We can direct you to several stretches of the Harmony Bike trail that are great for beginners. Even if there is a small snowfall, these areas hold the snow and the wildlife and winding creek make for a picturesque jaunt. Harmony does not 'shut down' after October. Our restaurants remain open all year and two are open 7 days a week. We can help you find wonderful ways to fill your time. Or curl up in front of the fireplace and practice being 'mindful'.
