Watched sun rise over Mississippi River Saturday morning. Saw some Eagles. We had breakfast at the Mont Rest B&B. Excellent. Will be there again later this year. Bellevue Iowa has Lock & Dam 12 plus antique shops and local social establishments.

We stayed at Mont Rest on a cold wintery weekend, so the inn was the main attraction. We went for a Murder Mystery dinner with was great fun! The staff knows how to do these well and although we knew no one else in the group, we had a great time. Innkeeper Naomi went out of her way to attend... More

We loved the casual and interactive experience at Mont Rest. Unlike some B&B's where guests stay to themselves, Mont Rest encourages guests to mingle and make full use of the home. It is a charming, somewhat eccentric experience that was delightful. Food was delicious and the Murder Mystery a great opportunity for entertainment. Walking distance from the downtown and great...

Mont Rest Bed and Breakfast is the most comfortable and welcoming place we have ever stayed. It combines the beauty of the Mississippi River, an 18th century renovated and very comfortable home with the most welcoming and laid back atmosphere we have every experienced. The Mansion is located on a hill overlooking the Mississippi River in a wonderful little town... More

Our first trip to Mont Rest was in about 1991 and was fantastic. But our last two have been absolutely magical! We spent New Year's Eve 2012 and 2013 at Mont Rest, enjoying beautiful accommodations and amenities and a fantastic and fun-filled Murder Mystery. Food at the Bed and Breakfast, originally built in 1893 as a private residents was phenomenal... More

Mont Rest Inn is more than just a bed and breakfast. Not only are the suites wonderful, the whole experience is top notch. Words cannot describe how good the food is. Our weekend was a surprise my husband pulled together and he left me speechless. Murder mystery dinner was so fun - Noami made the evening the best. Thank you... More

http://www.montrest.com/ We ventured over to the Mont Rest for a murder mystery dinner then overnight stay as it is a beautiful bed and breakfast. I would highly recommend this place and hope to return for another night of murder and mayhem. It was even more fun than I expected as the guests were costumed, accessorized, and given character roles to... More

After having had a 'rough go' of it of late, I decided to surprise my wife with a B&B stay and treat her to a Murder Mystery Dinner experience. Earlier in the week, we had our beloved dog put to final rest after 16+ years. I didn't want us to spend the weekend staring at the walls while missing our... More

My husband and I just spent the weekend at Mont Rest, and cannot say enough about the whole experience. We had the "Titanic Dinner" on Friday and enjoyed the Murder Mystery dinner on Saturday. The food was absolutely amazing both nights and both mornings. I have traveled extensively, and have never had better. The owner, Chris, her husband, all the... More

What a fun, relaxing & entertaining weekend! The food is 5 star, the hotel magnificent and the service outstanding. The lavish dining room is the perfect setting for the Murder Mystery dinner & dressing up to get 'in character' was a lot of fun. We'll be back :)
