Your Hosts

Todd and Shannon Watkins Welcome you to The Garden House Bed and Breakfast

Todd and Shannon met in 1994, during their internship at Marriott’s Tan Tar A Resort in Lake of the Ozarks, MO. In the summer of 2020, both still in the hospitality industry, they found themselves realizing their dream of owning a Bed and Breakfast.
The minute they walked into the Garden House Bed and Breakfast and looked at the breathtaking view, they knew it was meant to be. The former owners, Doug and Lilliana Meyer, who built the house in 2001, took immaculate care of the property and the transition was seamless.
Todd runs the day to day operations, cooking breakfast, and maintaining the rooms. Shannon continues to work full time for the BWH Hotel Group while managing the books, and caring for the beautiful gardens throughout the property.
Todd and Shannon live on property with their dog, Watty. They have 2 grown children Ali and Peyton who reside in Iowa City, IA.
They welcome you to their house and hope you will love it as much as they do.

Arrive as guests, leave as friends.
