This is the ONLY B&B in St Paul, and it is a PRIME location, right on Cathedral Hill! The house, built in 1896, is BEAUTIFUL with the original woodwork, lovingly restored, and so delightful with original entry fireplace, carved wood, stain glass windows, stairway and more.... The proprietor told us the city will not allow more than 4 rooms to... More

This place is run by a man and two or three college girls who do the cooking and probably lots more! The owner promised us a senior AARP discount which was not given. He left no indication of where to procure clean towels, Did not have anything on the door to indicate if you wanted your room straightened or sheets... More

This B&B is in a beautifully maintained Victorian home in a great location in Saint Paul. The place is a few blocks from several good restaurants (easy walking distance) and is also close to Summit Avenue noted for its grand Victorian homes. The B&B is charming, the room was spacious, the bed was comfortable. As another reviewer mentioned, the towels... More

This home was built in 1896, amazing interior. We stayed in the Coleo room on the main floor. It was comfortable but a little cramped. The breakfast was very good, nothing fancy but different every day and the young lady who did the cooking was very accommodating. The amenities like linens, towels weren't quite up to the standard I expect... More

We were welcomed for a last minute one-night stay and could not have been happier. The 2-room suite was perfect for traveling with our son and the house was very easy to find, even arriving at night. The B&B is in the middle of the Fitzgerald Walking Tour, and a wonderful base for exploring the historic area.

My wife and I stayed in the second floor suite recently--very comfortable surroundings, in this distinguished old house. The many rooms are characterized by intricate woodwork dating from a bygone era. Bill Gray, the owner, is hospitable but not intrusive. Breakfast is good and not too much to eat. Plus the guest can specify time and menu! Highly recommended for... More

My son and I were utterly charmed by this wonderful historic house. We were even more delighted with the lovely proprietor, who made us feel completely at home. This is a Victorian mansion filled with gorgeous carved woodwork on a lovely street, a few minutes from Macalester by car. Breakfast was delicious. Warm and welcoming, and totally a pleasure.

Bill Gray, the proprietor is a gem of a person. Hospitable, and a great conversationalist over breakfast. Oh, and the B&B is very elegant, and located in a nice neighborhood. Treat yourself and stay with him.

We went here for the weekend and it was very nice! A great place to stay in St Paul, so close to Grand Ave and all the nice things.

We had a wonderful stay at Cathedral Hill while our son was doing a visit down the road at Macalester College. The inn is located in a fantastic neighborhood for walking, dining and shopping and Bill had provided a very good walking tour guide in our room information. For those from the Boston areas, the neighborhood reminds me of the... More
