We have been traveling to the Dubuque area on Easter weekend for over 20 years. We occasionally stay at hotels but vacation homes and cabins are prefered. There are plenty of great venues but after several years attempting to book Marvin gardens cabin at Four Mounds we finally struck gold this year. Every aspect of the expierience was perfect. The...

The hubby and I visited Dubuque to bicycle the Heritage Trail. When bicycling we need housing where we can easily keep our bikes close by. Off the beaten path is best; out of sight, out of mind. Four Mounds is a great spot if biking the Heritage Trail. As an added bonus, all of the previous reviewers positive comments about... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight on our way to Mackinac Island. We stayed in the Master Suite in the White House. We had a chance to see I some of the other rooms in the White House and they looked nice as well. We had a nice view of the Mississippi River with windows on three sides of... More

Amazing view from back deck. Nestled in the woods, 2 minutes from the houses you don't even realize the houses are so close. Beautiful cabin,fireplace, small kitchen but fully stocked. Great getaway! Excellant homestyle breakfast. Wonderful staff!

My husband and I enjoyed a stay in the master suite of the white house. The grounds are gorgeous - flowers, birds, trees. The river view was breathtaking. The home was absolutely charming. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and Marie was a fantastic host! We really enjoyed our summer visit and hope to make it back in the... More

After a short drive from Dubuque, you enter the winding wooded drive at Four Mounds and it is like stepping back in time. We stayed in the Gray House and there were only two other guests staying there that night. This isn't the usual B&B; it is not staffed overnight, and it is used for group activities and events. For... More

We loved the Four Mounds. We stayed in the cabin with our children and had a wonderful breakfast in the white house the next morning. The cabin is very charming and we were able to grill a meal here for the kids and a couple of family members and ate overlooking our wonderful view of the river. Breakfast was fantastic.... More

We stayed in the cabin, which was perfect for our family of three. The cabin was a little rustic, but we enjoyed the privacy. The staff was so kind and let us walk around the two other houses by ourselves. The rooms in the other houses were all very nice. Everything is very clean! FYI: You will have to share... More

We asked to have our wedding in one of their living rooms. Mind you, we were not staying there and we needed the place for about 1.5 hours total, including a rehearsal. Marie agreed and I sent out $100 (FULL amount, by the way, not just a deposit) ahead of time. No contract offered or asked. That's my bad and... More

We appreciate the opportunity to respond. Five days before her planned marriage, she cancelled and told us she would be getting married this summer in Cook County, IL instead. We reminded her that there is 0% refund within 30 days of your stay. I went outside our policy and offered to allow her to apply her payment in-full towards another... More

We stayed in the White House which is not nearly as beautiful as the mansion but still very nice and great for a smaller more personal experience. The real attraction of the property is the setting, on a wooded lot overlooking the Mississippi River. It was fun to watch the wild turkeys, Cardinals and Blue Jays. We went in the... More
