Marlie Barlow was a writer, photographer, and world traveler that hailed from Soldiers Grove. In between journeys, he took countless photographs of our area. He returned to the valley late in life to formally document the rich history of Soldiers Grove. Marlie wrote two picture books about the area and became Soldiers Grove's local historian. The Barlow suite is dedicated to the land that Marlie loved. Wintery silver-green and sun-touched barley gold meld with the large open-concept room’s historic natural beauty. The kitchen is equipped with a mid-sized refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, and coffee maker. The living area features a small dining table and a relaxing lounge chair under a sunny west window. A desk with handy outlets for charging laptops and devices sits below a 50-inch wide-screen LED TV. After a long day of country fun, relax in the spacious bathroom in a full-sized tub with a shower. When it's time to retire for the evening, a king-sized bed welcomes you for a movie or your favorite show on the big-screen TV.
