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

Weekend getaway. Wanted something different. It looked incredible, with it's views over the Mississippi, so we took a bit of a chance and booked it. Turns out, we had the whole house (and it's a substantial home) to ourselves. Our accommodations had a separate bedroom and living area and the bathroom was gorgeous! White tile floor to ceiling -- so... More

Imagine: A stroll in a 40-plus acre park and woodland overlooking the Mississippi River. A feast on a gourmet breakfast while watching many varieties of birds at a feeder 20 feet outside a bay window.

My 10 year old daughter & I stayed one night in the White house during a short trip to the Miss. River Museum. We had reserved Findy's room, but were upgraded to the Master Suite for the same price.

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.

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.
