A step back to a time of beauty, graciousness, manners and service. Richard was the perfect host. It felt like home as soon as we stepped foot on the enclosed screened wrap around porch. Awesome feeling. There were extra touches of hospitality through out the house like the sunny tea room with the fridge stocked with water, juice, pop, and... More

We have been to several B&B's in Wisconsin for our anniversary. We have also been to California, and other places. This place is fantastic. Richard is a master innkeeper, with experience that he brings from many years in the hospitality business. Extremely polite, and a great chef, with excellent advice for visiting the Winona area. Lend him your year, and... More

This B&B is not for you if you like beige, impersonal hotel rooms and you prefer to be anonymous. It is for you if you appreciate a glorious historic house full of eclectic furnishings and pieces, and an innkeeper for whom the word 'characterful' barely suffices. Located in a charming, spectacularly sited riverside town, the house is a mix of... More

I Just visited this place with two other people and it was wonderful! The outside is beautiful and the inside is breathtaking as well! It is kept very well on the inside and makes you feel like you are in a Victorian Mansion! The owner keeps it very well and he is very friendly and knows his history of this... More

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 It allowed my imagination to run wild with historical references in the architecture.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

Richard G, General Manager at Alexander Mansion Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Built over 129 years ago Alexander Mansion B&B has deep historical roots within our community. Visitors often stop in to look at the Inn. We have a large hand cranked doorbell that can be heard throughout the house. This is my home as well and my cell phone and business phone numbers are posted both outside the front entrance and...
