Don Q Inn.

Don Q Inn

A crazier-than-most fantasy room motel. Take a bath in a cheese vat, or soak in a hot tub on the moon. Underground tunnel leads to nearby restaurant in a barn. Giant airplane is parked on the front lawn. Report... [01/22/2017]

Don Q Inn

Visitors can enter the Don Q airplane and pretend they are flying high to help servicemen. Such an awesome attraction. You must be able to do stairs to enter the plane.

Don Q Inn: Boeing C-97

In the front yard of the Don Q Inn there is a full-size transport plane that you can actually go into. Stand in the cockpit or walk into the back of the military plane where the soldiers sat.

Don Q Inn - Fire!

Unfortunately, the 100 year old barn that housed the restaurant at the Don Q Inn was totally destroyed by fire on Feb. 22, 2017. While the barn was a total loss, fire crews kept the flames from spreading to the Inn. Everyone had been evacuated safely and there were no injuries.

The plane parked out front was far enough away from the burning building and wasn't damaged.

Just FYI: I called to book one of these super awesome rooms for our upcoming road trip and was informed that no children are allowed at all under any circumstances... but you can come tour the place on the weekend.

If you want to visit a particular room, and no one's stayed in it the previous night, you should ask at the desk if you can be let in to see it. We were impressed by the "Tranquility Base" moon room during a recent visit.
