“October Getaway 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We were delighted to find such a fabulous B&B .... beautifully decorated, cozy, and the host Ken was polite, sweet and made you feel comfortable. Each room has a private bath, very clean and food for breakfast was nice you pick time ...and it delicious. We cannot wait to go back :)

We cannot begin to say all the wonderful things about this amazing Inn and it's Inn keeper Ken! We have been here twice and both times we were greeted right away with kindness and class. Ken know this Inn well and shows you around to make us feel at home. Pure class and comfort the whole time here, we ride motorcycles and he was so accommodating it was going to rain at night and had us put all the motorcycles in beautiful barn. Rooms have been all beautifully remodeled and each has an awesome in suite bathroom. The breakfast he served us was gourmet, with a fire going it was hard to leave, we will be back again & again

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, it's a warm & cozy place, it's nice each room has it's own...

A beautiful historic inn, restored and spacious, with all of the comforts of home and more. The innkeeper was extremely accommodating - it's obvious he takes great care in the providing a wonderful experience for his guests. Breakfast was tremendous - you choose from a menu and choose your time to dine in the huge front room. Our room had a huge and comfy king bed, a walk-in shower, and plenty of room. It's such a wonderful place that I hate to comment on anything at all that's not glowingly positive, but you should know that if you are a light sleeper, the walls are thin and the floors creaky. I was woke up by 1 a.m. bathroom breaks upstairs and even a snoring person in another room.

We attended a class reunion dinner and then spent the night too. The appetizers were served on the patio set in a perennial flower garden. The delicious meal was served in the inn's beautifully restored front room. The guest room we stayed in had the most comfortable king sized bed with a modern private bath. In the morning we were served a delicious breakfast at a time that we chose. A wonderful weekend.

The owner of this inn has done a wonderful job of remodeling and decorating. I'm so glad someone is providing resources to preserve and restore this historic building. The beds were the best of our ten-day trip. The host was very friendly and fixed us a wonderful breakfast which was served in the large, attractive dining room. The inn is immaculate and well maintained. Many might miss staying in this B & B as it is several miles north of Dubuque. it is located in a very small town of Sherrill which may have as many churches as people. The area is beautiful and if you are heading to Wisconsin, the Cassville ferry is nearby to take you across the mighty Mississippi River. Put this inn on your itinerary.

My husband and I just stayed at the Black Horse 9/28/2012. The rooms were beautiful. The host was knowlegable about the area. The breakfast was a hearty country breafast and we got to choose the time for breakfast which is great so we could be on our way to see the leaves. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend it to everyone and will stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms have bathrooms. The elevator only goes to the 2nd floor. So if you don't want to climb...
