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

Our stay at Four Mounds was relaxing and fun. We traveled with our 3.5 year old and stayed in the Marvin Gardens cabin. In the cabin, there is a piano (our daughter loved it!) a large dining room, large living room, two built in beds near the windows and a separate bedroom/bathroom. Outside, the cabin is surrounded by trees, has... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, had an overnight in Dubuque and stayed at Four Mounds. It was a unique experience. After lunch, we called Four Mounds and were told we could check in early since they were "cleared out and cleaned up." The trip from downtown Dubuque took about 10 minutes since Four Mounds is located on... More

We had a family reunion at Four Mounds this past weekend. We all arrived on Friday and we had a family feast! The next morning we were served a wonderful breakfast by the staff, and then hung out, went hiking, etc. We then decided to do the ropes course and other activities. This hidden gem has something for everyone. The... More

Imagine your day spent looking out over the Mississippi and sipping lemonade on the screen porch, while the cook and chauffeur handled daily chores. Imagine no longer. Visit this yesteryear B&B for a taste of life back when. The Grey House is a perfect place for a family gathering or quiet get away. There are a few improvements to make... More
