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

This fantastic place was just what we needed to begin our vacation. It's a lovely old mansion comfortably and handsomely decorated with craftsman style furnishings. For us it was perfect! Since we used to live in Southern California it feels a lot like Old Pasadena - very high quality construction by well to do and stylish folk. We enjoyed talking... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Four Mounds with extended family for a family reunion in September, 2013. The majority of my family stayed in the White House while my Mom and I slept in two rooms in the Grey House. Both houses were to-die-for gorgeous and comfy! The White house is more beautiful and spacious than it appears... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four Mounds is a historic estate located along the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. 60 acres of natural and cultured grounds feature three different, historic and unique options for lodging. Rent one room for a night or take over the whole site for a week. Our 1908 craftsman style Grey House features seven bedrooms and large gathering spaces. Our 1924 classically designed White House is more intimate and refined, with four bedrooms. Our 1950s cabin in the woods overlooks the river and provides rustic seclusion with all modern amenities, accommodating up to four people. Four Mounds is a unique getaway experience and when you discover it, you will fall in love. Dubuque is a culturally and economically vibrant river town that has great attractions and features year-round. Whether its an afternoon out on our trails, a trip to the National Mississippi River Museum, or a dinner excursion to the Potosi Brewery and National Brewery Museum... you will enjoy all that Dubuque has to offer. ... more   less
