You could not go wrong with this place. It has an intriguing history and unusual concrete and wood construction that the hostess Virginia explains with detail and enthusiasm. The grounds are beautiful, just like a park. We stayed in the room with the four-poster bed and really enjoyed it -- very luxurious (McNeill Suite). Two days flew by too quickly... More

The McNeill Stone Mansion has so much to offer. We stayed in the McNeill Suite, and it had everything from a working fireplace that can be used year round, a double Jacuzzi tub, a comfortable queen size bed, and a lovely sitting area. The entire home was tastefully decorated, but very warm and welcoming. There were beverages and snacks available... More

Gary and Virginia are wonderful hosts. They made us feel welcome and the room and food were wonderful. We enjoyed talking with them about the 7 year renovation project of the mansion. Must see to appreciate all of their hard work.

We live in the same town this fine establishment is in. We feel like we know the host and hostess personally. When we stay there we feel as though we are out of town and there is no need to leave town! You would not believe how nice this place is....the rooms are nice and clean and authentic. They have...

The architecture is stunning, the atmosphere is very laid back. Gary is great to converse with! The breakfasts are always over the top! I suggest the penthouse suite you'll never want to leave! The neighborhood its located in is very quiet and good for taking a walk to go to lunch or just see the sights.

This was our third visit, and each time we are blown away by the exquisite décor, the perfect restoration, and the comfortable warm feeling of being here. Gary and Virginia are the perfect hosts, genuinely welcoming without being cloyingly intrusive. The food is delicious, and the service makes you feel like a visiting Royal. Don't pass the opportunity of staying... More

If you happen to be traveling anywhere in Iowa or Illinois, it would be worth your while to make a detour through Oskaloosa, Iowa for a stay at the Stone Mansion Bed and Breakfast. We have traveled through out the United States and to numerous locations outside the country, but this is one of the nicest places we have ever... More

We arrived late in town to visit someone in the hospital a half block from the Stone Mansion. When I used my phone to see our lodging options, I resigned myself to sleeping somewhere resembling low income housing. Then I saw the B&B tab on TripAdvisor and the McNeill Stone Mansion B&B was presented with beautiful rooms just across the... More

My husband and I were traveling without our dog on a recent trip to Minnesota. This left us open to more possibilities on an overnight stay on the road. I was skeptical about finding a B&B in Oskaloosa, Iowa, but was more than pleasantly surprised. The McNeill Stone Mansion is not only a marvelous property, it also has an amazing... More
