Such a beautiful home on a tree-lined street in Historic St. Paul! The Cathedral Bed and Breakfast was a delight for us to discover as we were touring colleges. We found the setting to be homey, beautifully warm with rich wooden detail and lovely rooms. The beds were very comfortable and breakfast was delicious! They took special care to ask...

This is an excellent B&B, run by nice people. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. The breakfasts were good and varied. Further, its in a very interesting part of the city, surrounded by one of the largest historic district of Victorian houses in the country, with some huge and magnificent mansions. The Hill House is a few blocks away....

Walking distance to Hill House and Cathedral landmarks. Favorites were Nina's Cafe, Happy Gnome, and Cossetta's fine dining. Bedrooms were cozy. Beds were very comfortable. Innkeeper Bill was very attentive to our needs,...

Bill Gray runs an outstanding B&B near the James J Hill House and several other sites worth seeing on your next stay in St Paul. The Summit Avenue/Ramsey Hill area is enjoyable to just walk around and see all the beautiful homes of the era. Cathedral B&B is beautifully restored and kept up. We stayed in the suite which had...

We were visiting St. Paul for a wedding. We decided we would like to stay for a few more days, but not in a hotel. I found the Cathedral Hill B&B and thought it sounded perfect.

The house is located in a beautiful area and convenient to St Paul. The room was lovely and very spacious. The owners were friendly without being pushy or intrusive. The breakfast was outstanding and I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay when you are visiting the St. Paul area.

This place is run by a man and two or three college girls who do the cooking and probably lots more! The owner promised us a senior AARP discount which was not given.
