Paul Reinhardt and Jean Kapparos are Iowa natives, Army veterans, and proud Americans. After being away from Iowa for 37 years, they retired in 2017, and came home to the wonders of our great Midwest and the Mississippi river. La Belle Porte Bed and Breakfast was born from their vision to bring a refined and relaxing venue to America's Heartland. Paul and Jean have traveled throughout the world and gained an appreciation for the finer things in life. La Belle Porte is a reflection of their travels. You will enjoy luxury, privacy, security and serenity while staying in Sabula; Iowa's only island city.
We offer an intimate and private environment for relaxing and enjoying the peacefulness of island life. Parking, fitness room, hot tub, pedal boat, kayaks, fishing gear, coffee, tea and bottled water are available at no additional charge.
With two private ensuite rooms your stay at La Belle Porte will help you de-stress. Both rooms are equipped with bathing essentials, hair dryer and Wi-Fi. Golfing, fishing, boating, biking, hiking, shopping and antiquing are within 20-minute drive. Information about local activities is available upon request.
If traveling via boat, guests of La Belle Porte can pull up to our dock, unload necessities and enjoy the best fishing hole in Pool 13.
