Our room was beautiful and the owners were attentive and courteous, without hovering. This was a repeat visit to the Beall Mansion for my husband and me because we had such an enjoyable experience the first time. We especially enjoyed the 24-hour chocolate bar!

It's not often that you stay somewhere that simply has everything you need and want. Beall Mansion did and it was provided with such care that we felt completely comfortable for our entire stay. The house, the beds, the grounds, the food, the care...everything was absolutely perfect! If you're looking for a couples getaway, or a family reunion, or just... More

Stayed here for my 25th wedding anniversary. The house was beautifully restored after several different owners put their own touches on the place. It was well kept, clean, and in a quiet part of town for a good nights rest. Ear plugs are even provided if your bed partner is too loud. They went the extra mile to serve us... More

We stayed here on a whim as we were passing thru the STL area. This mansion has a lot of history surrounding one the most important figures in Alton's history and Jim and Sandy have done an amazing job in restoring the home to its original splendor. The home is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the self-serve... More

A stay at the Beall Mansion is much more than a stay at a nice Bed & Breakfast. It is a step back in time to the historic era of the early 20th century and you are one of the pampered rich. Jim and Sandy are your warm and gracious hosts who are more than willing to share their wealth... More

This is a lovely elegant place to get away. The service was second to none. The room was large and beautifully appointed. From massages available in the your room to a sumptuous breakfast served in the dining room (minimal extra cost) everything was quit lovely. We will definitely stay again.
