Squires Manor has the perfect combination of a great staff, great rooms, and a great town. My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Ballroom Suite and it was perfect. The bed was super comfortable and I slept amazing. We were able to relax in the tub and it seemed like heaven on eath. The room was emaculate and we felt safe at Squires. Maquoketa is an amazing small town rich with history. Main street was gorgeous. Can't wait for our next trip!
Got together with brothers and sisters and spouses. Could not have had a better experience. Nathan and staff could not have been more pleasant and food was great. The antique atmosphere was of great interest and owner took the time to explain the beautiful antiques. Definitely going to return was expressed by all. Thank you Squires Manor.
This B&B was exactly what we were looking for! Our family needed a get away from the Chicago burbs. Our kids are going to have very high standards for the next B&B considering this was their first one! We stayed in the Ballroom Loft which was gorgeous! The whole house really is amazing! There is so much to look at and you can tell how much they have tried to embrace the history of the house. Food was delish and the Inn keepers are great! Thanks Nathan and Rudd for making our little get away so memorable! We will be back;)
Great place, gracious host, wonderfully furnished and appointed, the finest mansion in the historic town of Maquoketa, near the locally famous caves, don't miss them! Conveniently located on Highway 61 with scenic Grant Wood byways extending in either direction.
A Table for Twelve is the newest venture undertaken by the owners of Squire’s Manor Bed and Breakfast in Maquoketa. Owner Nathan’s love of cooking and good food has led him and partner, Rudd to offer a once a week dining experience in their historic home. The beautifully dining room table will accommodate 12 guests who are served family- style from an old-school menu whose entrees rotate weekly through Beef Wellington, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Bacon-Wrapped Tenderloin, pasta and seafood. On arriving, we gathered in the parlor, already decorated for Christmas, as was the rest of the Victorian house. We were invited into the dining room and offered an array of cheese and crackers, including a personal favorite, Milton Creamery’s Prairie Breeze, an aged white cheddar. We were served wine by the host who chatted briefly. The appetizer was another retro favorite, Bacon-Wrapped Dates followed by a perfectly prepared Clam Chowder (the secret is cooking the clams separately). The wine went around again as guests became better acquainted and the entrée, Bacon-Wrapped Tenderloin and Potatoes Romanoff was prepared. My medium-rare tenderloin was perfectly pink all the way through and fork-tender. The Potatoes Romanoff were perfectly seasoned and delicious, an old-school dish that should be seen more often. A choice of three desserts was offered, all created by co-owner Rudd, Cheese Cake, Sherry Pound Cake, or, my personal favorite, Bread Pudding made with home-made Brioche and served, if you like, with warm Whiskey Sauce. We enjoyed a delicious dinner, served with style in an atmosphere of by-gone elegance. A Table for Twelve exceeds expectations.…
