My wife and I came to Winona from Milwaukee for a quiet weekend getaway to celebrate our 10th anniversary. This was our first time in Winona, and when we planned our trip we saw this B&B online and thought it would be neat to try. That decision was a very good one. If you like history and 1800's architecture, you... More

We stayed one night and found this to be a most charming, relaxing and restoring B & B. One of the best we have ever stayed in. Richard is a wonderful host and very informative to talk to. Breakfast was fit for a king. Bed was extremely comfortable and I wish we could of stayed a couple more nights. Gale... More

I found the mansion to be a glimpse into a noble simpler past were a man's word meant something. It allowed my imagination to run wild with historical references in the architecture. As a history buff, I found myself feeling as if I stepped into the community founder's family life.

My wife and I were meeting friends in Winona for the Shakespeare Festival and they suggested staying at the Alexander mansion. What a fantastic idea. This B & B was beyond my expectations. The proprietor, Mr. Richard Grabow, was the perfect host. He did everything possible to make our stay memorable. The mansion is beautiful, the breakfast was outstanding, his... More

Had the good fortune to be passing back through Winona and stayed for a second time at this beautiful B&B. I stayed in The Durand Alexander Suite. Well, ladida aren't I Mr. Fancy Pants. I sure felt like it. What a gorgeous room. It has an attached sunroom I only wish I had more time to enjoy. Breakfast is an... More

We take a lot of short trips to Winona to visit our college son and we are always amazed at the friendliness of its people, that is, until today. On the way to Winona I checked out Trip Advisor to see if there was someplace to stay the next time, since we already had reservations for this trip. We found... More

It's just like stepping into early 1900's elegance, but with such a lovely "make-yourself-at-home" approach! Richard is the perfect host, attentive and delightful. Allow plenty of time for breakfast, starting @ 9 am - it is not just a meal, it is AN EVENT!!! We cherish our 2-day stay there and are telling all of our friends to plan their... More

This marvelous Victorian treasure is well cared for by the host Richard who is gracious, generous, and obviously loves what he does. The house is beautifully decorated in Grand Victorian/Tudor style characteristic of the period and the particular tastes on its early owners. The house has so much character, although it is losing some of its spacious lawn to a... More

I wanted to celebrate my birthday at the Alexander Mansion. We had stayed here previously but not in warmer weather. We have a tradition of eating pizza on a B&B's porch and the Alexander's is certainly worth it! We knew our host Richard would cater to every detail, from offering to carry in our luggage to serving wine (or other... More

I love staying at this old inn. This is my sixth visit, and being summer, I enjoyed being outside. I would spend my mornings, before breakfast, sitting outside on the screened-in front porch. It was a perfect way to enjoy meeting fellow guests, while sipping coffee. And, the nights were cool enough, that I could open my windows. Richard always... More
