This was a wonderful visit, our room included a whirlpool tub and a fireplace! Loved the room and the host and hostess were very helpful. It was a tad pricier than a typical B&B and the breakfast available is only self serve continental unless you would like to upgrade a pretty large amount to a different package that includes massages...

Thank you so very much for your 5 star review. Alton provides the perfect place to stay providing mall town ambiance with the convenience of the big city of St. Louis just across the river. Looking forward to seeing you again.

We loved our room - we had a very nice sitting area. The furnishings are beautiful, and the amenities are fantastic. This mansion is worth a separate trip or a detour on route from a longer journey. Jim was a gracious host, and we always enjoy conversations with other guests when we stay at B&B's.

The home is fantastic and still decorated in period pieces that really set a fantastic atmosphere. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home and were taken care of. I would recommend spending a little extra for the dinning room gourmet breakfast as they really go out of there way to make it a special...

The first sight of the Mansion is to know that this will be a memorable visit as it is a truly beautiful house. Step through the door and first impressions are confirmed. The house is elegantly furnished with antique furniture and artefacts. This also applies to the bedroom we had which also boasted an outside balcony and given the unseasonably...

Charming place with lots of history! You're made to feel welcome the minute you step in. The garden is amazing! Our room was spacious and comfy, with private bath. Good location to historic Alton, and short drive to Grafton, where you can watch the river go by. We'd definitely visit again!
