When we pulled up to this home, we couldn't believe how big it was. And gorgeous! Another guest was reading on the porch and told us to ring the bell. We did and we were met by Dave, the host. We felt very welcomed. He showed us to our room (Currier Suite) which was lovely. It was large and had... More

In July 2013 my wife and I biked the Sakatah Singing Hills rail trail from Mankato, MN, to Faribault, MN. We started at Butler House B&B in Mankato, stayed one night at Hutchinson House, then biked back the next day. Both places offered friendly hospitality, comfortable lodging, and elegant breakfasts. Both houses are over a century old, but offer modern... More

Just a note to "lovevactioningalot" I feel a need to comment on your review. My husband and I have stayed at MANY, MANY B & B's across the country. The job of the host is to show you to your room and set a time for a breakfast that is enjoyed by all the house guests. By checking the website... More

Other than to greet us at the door, show us to our room, and serve us an uninspiring breakfast (with the same egg dish served two days in a row); there was no attention paid to us during our stay at the Butler House B&B. Everything about this B&B was subpar. The curtains hang unevenly and the toilet made a... More

Our 3 night stay at the Butler House made our Mankato stay comfortable and magical. Our host, David, recently took over running the B&B and he made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We came to Mankato to visit Maud Hart Lovelace's home town and the setting of her Betsy-Tacy books. Staying in this wonderful home of Lovelace's era and... More

The reservation process was smooth, but we found it odd that they required a check for down payment when we made the reservation even tho we gave them our credit card #. When we got there, the hostess showed us the dining room and nothing else about the place except our room. We are used to B&Bs providing some wine... More

These people are the most unkind, rude B & B/hotel owners I've ever encountered. In October,2008, I booked a suite for 3 nights for a convention in July, 2009. As per their request, I sent them a $50 check to hold the room. Two weeks later, disaster hit. My elderly mother had a stroke, and when she was released from... More
