I am the owner of Everybody Bend Yoga in Cedar Rapids, IA and when I thought about where to host my first yoga retreat, Four Mound was it! I'd personally stayed at the Marvin Gardens cabin several times, so it was an easy sell to think about renting out the Grey House with another yoga studio owner to hold the retreat. As always, Marie was extremely helpful and the Grey House and grounds were PERFECT. We had eight participants for the retreat and we held it in January 2020 - Friday through Sunday. Four Mounds is easy to find, and the rooms, house and cabin were beautifully decorated for the holidays, which the participants loved. We'd asked to use the dining room for yoga and it was emptied out when we got there, which was perfect. It was so nice that there's a pocket door and the lights are on dimmer so it "felt" like a cozy yoga space. The kitchen was perfect for preparing the meals and everyone took their food and ate in the living room. The living room fireplace was ablaze the whole weekend and Marie and Jay were extremely helpful when we ran low on wood. It was nice for the other instructor and me to stay separately in the cabin - but all our participants wanted to see it too, and commented on how perfect it was for a solo retreat. There's so much natural beautiful in this location, which makes it perfect for our event. Even though it snowed, the participants went outside to go check out the trails too, and we all saw a bald eagle multiple times. The cabin and the Grey House had everything we needed and I heard from the participants that the beds were "so comfortable." If you're looking for a retreat space or just a getaway, this is the place to go! Reasonably priced, great service, and just the right vibe.

my wife and I spent a night at the Four Mounds a couple of weeks ago. We stayed in the main house and had a great room with a second "screened in" room with a bed. It was nice to sleep in the breeze with all the windows open. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed walking around. Breakfast was good but everyone had to eat at 9am. The only person from the Four Mounds that we actually met was the lady who was busy making us breakfast. So there was no chatting with the proprieter. Apparently the owner doles not enjoy meeting guests.

We just found this place to stop for the night on a road trip. The reviews looked good but the place was amazing, much better than the reviews. A well kept estate with three buildings, on 65 acres of land along the Mississippi River. The location was stunning, the service was excellent, very clean, and the grey house we stayed at was built in the early nineteen hundreds, with antique furniture, great home made breakfast, lovely trails. Just a perfect place to spend a few days. I was sorry to leave.

My husband and I booked a room at the "White House" B&B at Four Mounds and had a terrific nights's stay. Marie, the caretaker, has found her calling in life. She is so considerate and thoughtful; and a great cook. Their was only one other couple there, also celebrating their wedding anniversary and were delightful to meet at breakfast. Else it felt like we had the place to ourselfs. Bed was very comfortable, rooms were stylish and well spaced. Shower was amazing! The history and grounds of four mounds is incredible, beautiful view of the river and thunder strorm that rolled thru the night. Will definitely be back, l hope Marie is still there!

It’s as good as the other reviewers say. We stayed in Frindy’s room and enjoyed the adjoining sitting room and the views of the river. And the run of the White House downstairs. The rooms are so tastefully decorated. The nicest B&B we have ever stayed at. The property is quiet and secluded on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. We had the whole house one night and it still felt secluded the second night because our bedroom was at the opposite end of house from the master bedroom suite. And the grounds were lovely. I particularly enjoyed birdwatching at the feeders during breakfast and from the windows and trails all day long. The 3/4 mile bluff trail was very nice (once I found it). It was a short drive into Dubuque for dinner and near the heritage trail for a good bike ride. We hope to return one day. And I’d stay in frindys room again. Any of the rooms in the White House looked great. I’m sure the grey house rooms are nice too.
