We have just returned home following five days at the Four Mounds. It was a WONDERFUL place to stay. Our room was the Majestic River Suite in the Grey House. I can't even describe how beautiful and peaceful it is. The room has an adjacent sleeping porch which has windows on all sides with fantastic views of the river and... More

My sisters, cousins and I spend a weekend away every year to strengthen family ties and enjoy each other away from family obligations, etc. This year we chose to visit Dubuque, IA and Four Mounds Inn. What a wonderful find! Situated high above the Mississippi River on about 60 acres, we chose to stay in the smaller of the two... More

So, this isn't a hotel or a traditional B&B, but an old estate on the outskirts of Dubuque, lovingly restored and now functioning as a retreat center, but also renting out their rooms in the houses on the estate to travelers. I've never staying in anywhere quite like it: it is peaceful, with views to die for of the river... More

Absolutely perfect, stayed in the grey house master suite, best B&B ever. Rose is a lovely hostess, breakfast was wonderful! Beautiful view, spacious room with sleeping porch with big windows all around. Clean and tidy, grounds are wonderful with huge mature trees... Very peaceful, lots of birdsong. Will come back every season!

Peace and quiet in a beautiful mansion! Both the Grey House and the White House (where we stayed) were impeccably appointed and wonderfully comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and everyone who works there goes out of their way to make us feel at home (even though it IS a mansion!) Bonus is the river views, sitting at night under the stars... More

We had the pleasure of spending the night in this incredible location, nestled on the outskirts of Dubuque, IA and sitting just above the Mississippi River. The homes on this property have a history going back over 100 years and there are hiking trails all over the property. We took a walk with our grandchildren to the active chicken coop,... More

This location is amazing when you want to escape it all and just appreciate nature. The property is heavily tree-lined with lots of shade. There are also spectacular views of the Mississippi from the gardens. Avid bird watchers will love the abundance of our feathered friends! The hiking trails are perfect to explore the upper shore line. The breakfast was... More

Great B&B. In a remote location surrounded by trees. There is a long winding, single car width lane that takes you up to the property. Was a little confused at first if we needed to stop at one of the first houses we came across to check in, but decided to keep driving and went past the Grey House and... More

We went here for our anniversary and stayed at the Grey House. It was so fun. We just relaxed went to the arboretum and the winery and enjoyed the history of this house. The stay was quiet and relaxed. The grounds are beautiful. A great short trip.

My daughter and I stayed in the Marvin Gardens Cabin at Four Mounds Inn B&B the first weekend in May. The setting is very relaxing, and away from the hub-bub, overlooking the Mississippi. The cabin was welcoming and we felt right at home. We were surrounded by woods, but were within 5 miles of the major attractions in the area.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four Mounds is a historic estate located along the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. 60 acres of natural and cultured grounds feature three different, historic and unique options for lodging.

Our 1950s cabin in the woods overlooks the river and provides rustic seclusion with all modern amenities, accommodating up to four people. Four Mounds is a unique getaway experience and when you discover it, you will fall in love. Dubuque is a culturally and economically vibrant river town that has great attractions and features year-round.
