At Grandad’s Farm

56676 160th Street, Ames IA 50010


Loya’s Little House Bed & Breakfast should be your first choice for destination lodging in the Ames and Central Iowa area. Loya’s B&B creates a unique venue by capitalizing on the charms of the spacious accommodations, beautiful setting and unprecedented access to the amenities of the scenic Skunk River Valley and Ames area.

Loya’s B&B has four guest rooms, each with a private full bathroom. The spacious floor plan is a blend of private spaces and common gathering areas. The outdoor areas embrace the same concept of private and common areas in beautifully landscaped yards and gardens. Guests are offered a full breakfast each morning made with the highest quality, locally grown foods – most of which are grown on Grandad’s and RiverRidge Farms.

Loya’s B&B offers a variety of destination opportunities that range from agri-tourism to canoeing or kayaking the river, to hiking, running or horseback riding the farms’ trails with access to Story County trails. The B & B is only 10 miles from activities at Iowa State University and 40 miles from the amenities of Des Moines.

This picturesque, rural setting offers guests not only the quiet solitude of rural experiences but also the sophistication of big city entertainment and dining – a contrast of experiences for the guests’ choosing.
