I can't say enough good things about this B&B. My husband and I attended their murder mystery dinner and we had a spectacular time. The Inn was very beautiful inside and out. The innkeepers were amazing and very personable. We had a full sit down breakfast the following morning and the food was out of this world! I wish we... More

We were sent here by my mother in law for our first wedding anniversary, and she couldn't have picked a better place. From the second we drove up, we were just in awe of how beautiful the area and the home was. In exploring the home, it's beautiful every twist and turn you take. We did the murder mystery dinner,...

Everything about this place was better than I expected. Beautifully restored, nice extras like a double shower and whirlpool bath. Breakfast was plentiful and perfect, and the Mystery dinner was a hoot. Very friendly atmosphere.

When we arrived they were in the beginning of a Titanic dinner. All the people involved were dressed up for the era. Huge table with the Titanic in the middle. They also have murder... More

This was an impulse decision. We were in Galena, Illinois for a couple of nights and had a day to spend on the way to southern Illinois and Iowa. I found Mont Rest Inn on the web. It is a old mansion turned into a B&B. It has a dozen themed rooms, induding several in a carriage house connected to... More

My boyfriend and I had the most lovely time doing the Murder Mystery Evening at Mont Rest B&B and then staying the night! Naomi was such a great host and made us feel like we were home from the moment we walked through the door. The murder mystery itself was so intricate and fun (we even got to dress up... More

A trip to this wonderful B & B provides a chance to become part of the British aristocracy, if only for a few hours. I attended the luncheon there as a member of a women's club and, from the moment we walked through the door, we were treated like British royalty. We all donned a period costume which made us...

13 rooms with baths to accommodate large families and food is outstanding. Beautiful views of Mississippi River and Potter's Mill Restaurant nearby with great food and musical entertainment! Staff are so friendly and accommodating! Even more fun in summer with butterfly garden nearby!

This was an unforgettable stay. The place is magical and we felt welcome by the staff, specially Naomi. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It is a perfect place for couples. La Chapelle room is amazing. Also, the town has a great river front and great park.

This was our second visit to Mont Rest for a Murder/Mystery weekend getaway. Our first time was two years ago and we had such a fabulous time then we knew we had to come back. This trip was just as good, if not better! The Inn is beautifully maintained and exquisitely appointed with interesting antiques from far and wide. Naomi... More
