First, you will have complete privacy in this B&B! No annoying calls from a front desk, no one stopping by your room and only other guests in the common kitchen area. We arrived to find a very welcoming note on our door, the thermostat (which is in the entry way as this was originally a single family civil war era... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary as we were also attending my sisters college gradation in town, and I have to say we were very happy with our stay! We were in the room on the ground floor which was just awsome! The decor was new and more trendy then one would expect in a b&b. They... More

Very impersonal. It seems to be a work in progress. Many unfinished projects. Make your own breakfast. Never meet your hosts....even when checking in. There's a reason they're rated lowest in the area. We arranged to check in early, only to arrive with no access to the house. We immediately called the owners. Our phone calls were finally returned 4... More

My husband and I have stayed here for 3 years in a row now and will certainly be back! This is just the B&B we were looking for. We didn't want an awkward B&B with an Inn Keeper and have it feel like we are invading their home. I love this place because we can come and go as we... More

We arrived to find a note taped to the door of our room with instructions for our stay. The room was FREEZING and there was no thermostat available for adjustment. We called both contact numbers listed on the note, and received voice mails. We left message on voice mail for return call and continued to search for a thermostat finding... More

The place looks very rundown from the outside. Inside is not too bad, but needs a lot of tlc. The room was fine, and the bathtub was great. My issue was that we never ever saw the inn keeper. There was a letter taped to out door with information about house, wifi code, front door code ect. I heard someone... More

Folks, This is simply one of the worst experiences we had with a B&B! We have photos as the owner refuses to refund part of our stay as we chose to stay elsewhere. Simply save your hard-earned money and go somewhere bug free, clean that has descent service!

This was the most romantic stay I've ever had! The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was healthy. It was great to be able to lay on the bed after a whilrpool bath with a glass of wine and watch a movie. We will defintely make this a part of our plans each time we visit Dubuque!
