Today was my third or fourth visit to to Miss Spencer's Tea Room. I am NEVER disappointed and always pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of the food, tea and sweet treats!! The warm and ...welcoming staff are always there to provide exceptional service and pamper you during tea time. If you are looking for fun way to spend an afternoon with your best friend, look no farther than this little gem nestled in the countryside of New Virginia, Iowa. It will quickly become your favorite getaway. It's worth the drive! Thank you for always taking such good care of us Ms. Donna and Spencer :) See More

Beautiful Decoration and very British. Love the decoration, the teas, the food. Hostess took great care of us, great service.
Its a place to be by yourself, if you want hustle bustle , activities , th...ings around you then not for you. Its a perfect place to be with a book and stay in your room or the tea room. Telephone signal is poor and Wi-fi is unavailable. There are lot of cows close by, so we did hear a lot of them through out the night - if you are a light sleeper, could be a challenge. The place is a bit remote. I will recommend for one night stay for sure. See More

Miss Spenser's went above and beyond my expectations! I went to a tea while in London at a very swanky place and Miss Spenser's was by far better in all aspects. The food, tea and ambiance were excell...ent. I did not consider myself a tea drinker but found I kept getting refills and ended up buying a bag and my own cup and saucer! I am already looking forward to attending another tea and becoming a regular. See More

We stayed at the B&B and it was a wonderful place to spend our anniversary. I will come back just to unwind from our daily routine. The tea room is very nice a great place to take your mom and girlf...riends to. My favorite tea was the Sweet Orange. So everyone in Des Moines come on out to this B&B only 35 min south from home and tell them The Cruchelow's sent you. See More

Miss Spenser's Special Teas was absolutely beautiful. The hostesses, Donna & Spenser were welcoming, delightful, and engaging. The finger sandwiches were fresh and delicious. I loved that we learne...d how you should properly drink tea, when we asked. My pre-teen/teen granddaughters loved dressing up and being so proper. I only give Miss Spenser's Special Teas a 5 because a higher number is not an option. I will definately be back. See More

Attended the DOWNTON ABBEY tea and program today. Everything was SO well done! Delicious food and a very detailed, informative, and yet light-hearted presentation by Miss Spenser!

Amazing tea, wonderful hospitality, incredible food, great products for sale. This place is one you can't miss!

Look what I found...Miss Spenser's Tearoom (and we think Bed and Breakfast too!) is one of the 12 Best Places in Iowa to visit!

See the best of the Hawkeye state this year, from restaurants to parks to pretty small towns.

A tea friend posted this today...had to share.
