This is the second time we stayed at the Alexander Mansion. The mansion itself is beautiful inside and out. The owner/operator, Richard, is the utmost host, waiting on you and spoiling you with all the little extras he provides. He serves a happy hour in the afternoon with several types of wine, And creamed sherry is always available as is tea. The tea room always has hot water available and many varieties of tea. The tea room is quaint and cheery. He also provides sodas and water in a mini fridge. Your room will be prepared for bedtime as Richard has already turned down your bed, turned on accent lights and music, and to top it off a small glass of Baileys Irish Creme and a chocolate served on tiny individual silver trays. The next morning Richard cooks and serves a 5, yes 5, course breakfast!! I ate every bite, fresh squeezed orange juice with a splash of almond extract from the Watkins factory (oh, be sure to visit the Watkins store in Winona too) and by the way, Richard uses all Watkins products!!a -back to breakfast-a fruit parfait, an Italian frittata, a salad, pumpkin bread, homemade by David, and then ice cream! If you are staying in Winona stay at the Alexander Mansion. You won’t be disappointed. Richard’s hospitality can’t be beat.

We cannot say enough about our stay at Alexander Mansion. From the minute we arrived we were swept back to a slower time where history matters, conversation is not just encouraged but part of the order of the day and breakfast is an event. No detail was overlooked from afternoon wine to evening turndown service and nightcap. This was not just a getaway, it was an experience!

The decor, the details, the hospitality, the ambiance, the food.... all absolutely wonderful. I went for 1 night for a much needed getaway and I'm so glad I did. My room was beautiful and so very comfortable. I really enjoyed soaking in the huge tub, which almost made me late for the 5 course breakfast. I have never had such a delicious, beautifully presented meal! Dessert 🍨 after breakfast topped it off. I will definitely return and highly recommend.

My girlfriend planned a weekend get away for us and we were blown away by the quality of our stay. Richard was incredibly kind, personable, and welcoming. The breakfast was beyond compare and the whole experience was simply perfect. We were fortunate that the other guests were bubbly and social, and we ended up talking with each other for hours! We are already planning our return for the holidays! -Jesse & Meg P.S. Make sure you enjoy some wine on the veranda. Its gorgeous!

This was our first time visiting The Alexander Mansion, and we were treated like long-time friends. Richard's sincere attention to detail is illustrated around every corner. We were warmly greeted and given a wonderful tour and history of the mansion. Richard not only meticulously manages this unique bed and breakfast, but hes has become part of the mansion itself, interwoven in every single detail. Our room was fabulous with every possible amenity dripping in true Victorian decor. Richard took the time to makes us welcome in our room and in the mansion. This warm welcome opened the door for us to meet other guests and have pleasant chats with all of them. Richard makes this beautiful house a home, even if it's only for a couple of nights. THE BREAKFAST: To be clear, eat light the night before. You will be treated to such a luxurious breakfast that you've never experienced before. The five-course meal is all freshly cooked and served with true joy by Richard. He spares no expense, and a hike in one of the neighboring parks will be required after satiating yourself on the finest breakfast you will have ever enjoyed. After checking out, we immediately looked at our calendar to find the next possible opening when we can return. Thank you, Richard for one of the richest weekends we've had. Ann and Mike
