“A most relaxing and friendly stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a very hectic weekend, as our daughter was getting married. However, while we were at the Inn, we were relaxed and felt right at home. Alfred has got to be the most friendly and enjoyable host we have ever experienced. He made us feel like the mansion was our home and went out of his way to accommodate us with arrival timing and breakfast timing so we could get where we needed to be. The breakfast was the most delicious breakfast we have ever had. Home made quiche, cinnamon roll french toast, sausage, bacon, hash browns - all on one plate! Incredible! During breakfast we had the wonderful experience of chatting with Alfred's son. What a cutie and very well spoken and great manners. Dad should be proud. We ended our morning with a gift - a picture drawn by Alfred's son. What great memories of an awesome stay. We highly recommend this place to everyone!

This was one of our best B&B stays. The Mansion has many antique features in its original architecture and in the furnishings provided by owner Alfred Lee. We had arrived while all rooms were vacant so Alfred encouraged us to tour all the rooms during our visit. He handed us the key to our room, the Honeymoon suite, and, for fun, told us to try and find it, the only hint being that it was on the third floor. Touring a large mansion like this was an adventure - a step back in time. We could not have asked more of Alfred - he offered much even before we asked. Persons staying at the Power's Mansion receive a free first beer at the Power Club. That's actually a good sampling of 6 different beers. THEN you pick the free beer you want. The breakfast was delicious and will hold you for an entire day. We're encouraging family to visit there.

Words cannot describe the incredible experience we had as a guest (feeling as if it was ours) at Powers Mansion Inn B&B. The history of Auburn was displayed proudly and the rooms beautifully arranged taking us back to another era of refinery. We got to taste the Innkeepers exceptional food and home brew in the very Irish Powers Club. Old town Auburn is within walking distance and is a wonderful destination spot, along with the recreational areas for hiking. We also were close to some amazing wineries and look forward to our next trip back to Powers Mansion (our home away from home).

Room Tip: Each room is very unique, with each one offering a different experience.

what struck us beside the beauty and comfort of the inn was the friendly staff lead by Alfred Lee.
we felt immediately at home.
The free drink and chat with the host and his daughter was great and so was the fantastic home made breakfast.
We were sad leaving and like to recommend this place whole heartily.

We did not have the great experience described by others, partly due to the fact that we did not do our own research on the place before making a reservation. We bought a Groupon for a two-night stay, based on the photograph and description in the ad. We subsequently found that first impression very misleading. It shows a beautiful old building, cropped to exclude the context of its surroundings. When we arrived, we did not find PMI set in a "garden" but surrounded by astroturf. It was not located in an area of other fine buildings, but was landlocked by commercial streets featuring real estate offices and a tire service center. And the beautiful appearance in the house in the ad was belied by a facade badly in need of maintenance. The building exterior not only needed paint, there were clear signs of wood rot evident as well, even at the front door. Nothing about our first impressions were positive.

When we arrived, the gate was locked, the lights were out, and no one was there. We called a number on the door and were told that "No one mans the place if there is not a guest in residence...but they would call the guy at the Pub to come and let us in." When we spoke to the guy by phone, he said no one was staying there, and we would be the only guests if we stayed! Rattling around in a huge empty place did not appeal to us. We did not see the interior (which looks better, in photos we subsequently saw). We decided to leave, and sought lodging elsewhere.

I have read other reviews since our experience, and many people did enjoy their stay at PMI. If your heart is set on staying there, I would recommend you book your stay when the place is active and full of guests. Maybe you should arrive after dark, so your primary impressions will be derived from the fine interiors. Also, be aware of PMI's local surroundings. All this would probably make for a better experience. And do NOT expect a refund on your reservation, if you change your mind after seeing the actual property. Unlike the 24-hour cancellation policy of many places, PMI will not refund your money if you cancel less than a full WEEK prior to your stay.

My wife & I had a wonderful time at the Power's Mansion Inn. Mr. Lee is a great host, and excellent chef. I highly recommend this place, so much history and they also host an excellent tea party. The mansion also has a Irish pub right next door with a brewery. If you are looking for a place to get married this place has it all. I will definetly go back again.
