The home features classic Victorian furnishings and accessories throughout and is lovingly cared for. Richard is a marvelous host who goes out of his way to make his guests feel at home and the food is good too. He encourages guests to mingle at a leisurely sit down breakfast at 9AM at a common table and then to gather later... More

This is an extraordinary house with an extraordinary host! My husband and I love to stay in B & Bs throughout the country, and the Alexander Mansion is by far the best one we have ever experienced. We were greeted warmly by Richard and we appreciated his knowledge of the area and his recommendation of a restaurant to go to... More

The Alexander Mansion epitomizes the utmost hospitality that a B&B could provide as evidenced by a wine and cheese welcome, five-course gourmet breakfast, and evening cordials and chocolates. The more than ample gourmet breakfast is the signature feature of this accommodation; however, if you want to start your activities early, rather than spend 1 ½ hours (9:00-10:30 a.m.) enjoying breakfast...

I was passing through Winona on my way home to Minneapolis and I was out of steam so I decided to hunker down in Winona for the night. I stopped at a Mickey D's and found Alexander Mansion online and bippity boppity boop I went from fighting traffic to sipping wine in the library of this beautiful B&B. It doesn't... More

My husband and I are B & B fans, but our last-minute decision to look for a B & B instead of a hotel while traveling to St. Paul resulted in the most amazing stay we've had in a B & B. First of all, the beautiful, well cared for mansion was one of the best examples of a Victorian... More

My husband and I spent three nights of our honeymoon in the D.C. Alexander suite, and the entire stay was fantastic. We were both new to B&Bs, but we could not have asked for a better experience. Richard was so welcoming, helping us find somewhere for dinner late on a Monday night. When we arrived back from dinner, a nightcap,... More

As a seasoned traveler and avid B&B fan, I had doubts that a place could truly achieve a 100% satisfaction rating... Well, Richard deserves above and beyond 100%! What a special place the Alexander Mansion is. From the warm conversation while making the reservation by phone, to having everything prepared down to the last detail: Wine on arrival, aperitif before... More

We came to Winona for a girls weekend. Staying at the Alexander Mansion truly made the trip amazing! Richard was so caring, he truly has made hospitality his life. His stories was so fun to listen to. The breakfast was amazing the fruit parfait and the quiche were my favorites. I would love to visit this B&B again. It is... More

Yes, they're all true: those rave reviews singing the praises of the Alexander Mansion and its host Richard, who may aptly be described as an hotelier extraordinaire. However, Doris and I simply see him as a wonderfully warm and charming human being, who has a gift for making travelers feel eminently at home in an anachronistic dwelling with a fascinating... More

Richard is such a gracious host. He even carried our suitcase to our spacious and beautiful room, the Maude Alexander suite. From the wine after check in to the delicious candle lit breakfast, we were treated like someone special. We truly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Alexander Mansion.
