Excellent B&B, The house was cute, clean, and classic. Ken the inn keeper couldn't have been any nicer. A great chef too. His attention to detail made me feel special. Can't wait to escape again. Town is near Galena Illinois which is helpful for night life.

Spent 2 nights with a friend while meandering along the Mississippi. This is a gem - very close to Dubuque but in a peaceful beautiful rural setting. The house is an impeccably restored mid-19th century guesthouse. Rooms are comfortable and spacious with modern high-end bathrooms. Innkeeper Ken is warm and welcoming and very helpful. He loaned us blankets and lawn... More

Returned to visit family in the area and opted to stay at B&B instead of a hotel. Wished we had done it on previous trips. We were wowed! House was beautifully restored and Ken, the innkeeper, was warm and friendly. The Inn was very inviting and relaxing. Will definitely be back to stay again.

Traveled to Iowa to see the "Field of Dreams" location and stayed at the Black Horse Inn for one night. Very interesting 1856 historical home, beautifully redone entirely on the inside. Everything was spotless and comfortable and Ken, the innkeeper was a delight. Informed us of some good places to sightsee & eat and we learned lots about the area... More

This place and Ken the Innkeeper are unbelievable. Ken treated our whole family like his family. The rooms are beautiful and very comfy. I would stay here again and again. We rented the whole house for family for our wedding. Ken made everything seemless and easy. I can't say enought good things about him and the house. Ken, thank you... More

My boyfriend and I love to stay in B&B's when we travel and this place was one of the best. Ken, the Inn Keeper, was friendly and so knowledgeable about not only the house, which has a great history and charm, but the entire area. He filled us in on some local attractions and gave us his card with his... More
