We needed a short break from the home chaos, and had a four day weekend available to us. We chose the Mont Rest for the murder mystery dinner. We arrived a few minutes before the 3:30 p.m. check in time, but that was not an issue to them at all. We were shown around by Ralph, the owner's husband, and... More

We stopped at Mont Rest on the way to my parents 50th Anniversary gathering in Galena, Illinois. We loved this inn and Chris made us feel right at home from the start. We were treated to fresh baked cookies and homemade chocolates. The rooms were great and filled with beautiful antique pieces and collections. Chris is an excellent cook and... More

We were are a small group of friends who stopped by the inn early to ask about check in times. A very nice man let one of us in to use the bathroom in the public area. Since we had a couple of hours to kill, we went downtown for lunch, walked around, and wandered back to hang out on... More

With a 4 yo. Child and no family nearby to babysit, a night away is a rare treat. As our trusted babysitter had a "sleepover", we got away for one night at Mont Rest, close enough to feel we weren't too far away from child, but far enough to feel it was an 'adult only' experience. Mont Rest did not... More

We just returned from a Murder/Mystery weekend at the Mont Rest Inn, prompted by previous trips made by friends and co-workers. What a fabulous experience! Everything from arrival to departure was delightful. The Inn is a historical treat, beautifully appointed with everything we needed for a weekend getaway (be sure to stick around for the telling of the Inn's rich... More

My husband and I stayed at Mont Rest one night in June. I found the Inn on the internet so we came knowing nothing about the place. We were warmly greeted and fascinated by the the abundance of antiques and detailed decorating. We were brought to our room "The Boardwalk" and felt right at home. The bed was very comfortable...

We are fairly well-traveled in the B&B industry, so I'd like to just boil this review down to pros and cons: Pros: lovely setting; gorgeous views of the river, woods, and wildlife excellent linens and comfortable bed lavishly decorated throughout with thousands of antiques and very special touches. air conditioner and ceiling fan worked well in the upper-80's heat quiet-we...
