One of the great houses of Dubuque - and we enjoyed our stay for a brief visit of two nights in early August. Rose was very welcoming and prepared delicious and substantial breakfasts for the 5 adults in our group. We were all impressed with the amount of space we had, and how much we felt at home. Would highly... More

We were so pleased to find a B&B that welcomed children of any age! Situated in a sketchy neighborhood, this B&B was a diamond in the rough! Rose greeted us last night and ensured our stay felt like a true retreat! Breakfast was amazing - a great mixture of protein and carbs - and delicious! She chose a meal that... More

Very comfortable setting with many rooms for conversation. Rose was extremely accommodating and the breakfasts were great. Each room was different with a different bathroom layout. Lots of period detail in the house.The house, at the time we visited, needed a top to bottom cleaning. The grounds could be lovely but the gardens have become overgrown. WiFi was spotty.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad to hear you noticed the detail in the home. It is one of the reasons we made Clarke Manor our home away from home! Service is our utmost priority and our guests deserve the best! I am terribly sorry to hear about the gardens. This is being addressed immediately. Thank you... More

The house was interesting. Each room has a definite personality. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the manor and enjoyed Rosie. She welcomed us and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was more than we expected. We would recommend this as a great place to stay.

We stayed in the Italian Room in June and it was large and beautifully appointed. Three or four kinds of wine with glasses were on one of the dining room tables all evening, so guests can have a glass of wine if and whenever they'd like. We only stayed for one night, which was too bad because we spent so... More

My wife and I spent one wonderful night at the cleave manor. We chose the Italian room which was beautifully appointed and spacious. The house is at the top of a hill in Dubuque. You can go up to the roof of the house and stand on a lovely deck to see breath taking views of the city. The owners... More

We were extremely lucky that our 1st choice of destinations had no rooms left in the city! Because of that, we had to choose a close by town to stay in. Dubuque was the next closest and Clarke Manor had 1 room left. As mentioned in other reviews, Rose is very friendly, serves a great breakfast, and keeps you feeling... More

What a warm and welcoming establisment! We had a short weekend after our wedding and chose Clarke Manor based on previous reviews-we were not disappointed! We were warmly welcomed and felt cozy in the Paris Room! Rose was a joy to talk with and she makes a fantastic breakfast...we will definitely be back!

Clarke Manor is very large, very clean and comfortable. We watched a DVD in the beautiful library, enjoyed the sun porch, and relaxed in the spacious living room. The most enjoyable part of our stay, however, were the conversations we had with the innkeeper, Rose. As another reviewer mentioned, "Rose is very friendly and down to earth. We feel as... More
