We loved staying here. Kathy, Virl and their wonderful staff treated us just like family. It's very nice, comfortable and the food is awesome. Don't miss out on the homemade tomatoe juice. YUMMY! We will return as we loved staying here. We feel like Squires Manor is our 2nd home.

First time at a b&b...we were looking for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle. Stayed 3 nights in the Bridal Suite located on the first floor, which actually was almost 1/2 of the main floor to ourselves. If 11-foot ceilings and beautiful original woodwork doesn't impress you, the hospitality of the owners, Kathy and Virl, certainly will. Breakfasts... More

Spent two nights in this very interesting, beautiful, and spacious b&b. The room was very clean, the breakfasts delicious, and the candlelight desserts very tasty!!! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We have been to several b&bs (all very nice), but this one is by far the very best. We are already trying to plan another visit to Squires... More

Thanks to Kathy and Virl, the owners. It was a wonderful place to spend the night. From the candlelight dessert served in the evening to the homecooked huge breakfast spread in the morning and complimentary drinks any time of the day or night. The house is wonderfully furnished with antiques. Our room was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay so much... More

Decided on a last minute getaway and oh so glad we did. I am not much on "Victorian" but was told that this place was the real deal. It is! The furnishings are amazing and the place (over 6000 sq ft) is spotless. We stayed in the largest room (Ballroom) with a king sized bed....20 ft cathedral ceilings and 1100... More

This is truly a unique and exceptional B&B and lives up to it's designation on the national register of historic places. The service and food was wonderful and we were pleasantly surprised with a scrumptious dessert the evening we arrived. Don't miss this great B&B!

This is a fabulous place to stay. The owners and staff were friendly and accommodating. The evening dessert was excellent and the the breakfast was wonderful. Cathy does a wonderful job working around food allergies. The gluten free peach cobbler was fantastic. The pictures do not do justice to the place. It is beautiful. I can't wait to return.

We stayed here for our anniversary, and visited nearby Maquoketa Caves State Park the next day. It was a very pleasant overnight trip, made especially lovely by our stay at Squiers Manor B&B. When we arrived, we got a tour of the house, with lots of history and information about the original owner and his family. The innkeepers seem very... More

Built in 1892, Kathy and Virl have transformed this home into a welcoming bed and breakfast with a special bonus of nightly dessert. All rooms are beautifully decorated and have private baths. I enjoyed my stay in the Maids room. Definitely worth a stop.
