“Great place to spend the weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I took my mom to Mont Rest for a girls-only weekend. We had a great time. First, the food is phenomenal! Chris (the owner) is a fantastic chef. We stayed for the Great Gatsby Themed dinner and had a fantastic time. The staff was all very polite, attentive and sweet. They gave us costumes to wear, which just added to the fun of the event. The ten course meal was well worth the three hour road trip out to Bellevue.
We did some sight seeing in Debuque and Galena, which are just 20-30 minutes away. If you wanted to spend the day at Mont Rest relaxing and enjoying the view of the water or if you wanted to go to a museum or a few wineries, you can do all of it.
The rooms are very unique (and clean!) and the history of the Inn is charming. All in all, I am not a bed and breakfast type of person, but I would recommend this place to anyone!

Chris and Ralph run a great B&B in Bellevue Iowa.

We had a great room, clean and neat, wonderful whirlpool tub. Great breakfast the stories of the Inn and history were very interesting. and the best views of the Mississippi River from the upstairs hot tub!!

We will definitely be back the the Mont Rest soon.

I have stayed at the Mont Rest several times. The inn is beautifully decorated. The rooms are comfortable, and the host and hostess are the best. Chris, Ralph, and Naomi are interesting and helpful. THe inn is located in a quaint and interesting town on the Mississippi River.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool. Sorry about the terrible. I can't erase it. Breakfast is the best.

We recently spent our annual Girl's Trip at Mont Rest. The B and B was beautiful Our rooms were very nice and we were given an area where we could all be together in privacy. The food was absolutely delicious. Naomi outdid herself with all 3 meals. The massages were the best we had ever had. We participated in a cooking class that was fun and lively and tailored to be interesting for my 10 year old granddaughter who joined us. Beautiful view of the Mississippi and rooftop hot tub. We were very disappointed that the dinner meal (sandwiches at a bar and grill) did not match the package description (gourmet candlelight dinner), and that other small package details were omitted. BUT overall the good outweighed our concerns and we had a very nice time. I would like to return sometime for the Titanic experience.

I usually think of B&B stays as awkward. But this was really well done. The owner and staff are great fun, have tons of stories, and manage things perfectly. I recommend the mystery night, which really gets people interacting, and involves major dress up. The river is just a couple of blocks away, and has a nice string of shops and places to eat. Very refreshing couple of days. I am sure to go back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are different, so take time to read the descriptions and talk with the staff when you...

We had a surprise overnight stay at the Mont Rest Inn, arranged by a friend on June 8th, 2013. The accomodations are beautiful victorian with attention to every detail. The owners and staff treated us like family. We participated in the Mystery Murder Dinner and had such a good time with the other guests. On our arrival we were greeted with sinfully good moon pie cookies and that was just the beginning of the fabulous food! The rooms and the views are amazing. We are already trying to find a date to go back!!!
