Historic house in need of exterior repair
This house will be appreciated by those who enjoy an old Victorian home, and do not expect it to have the amenities of modern living. The exterior is badly in need of repairs. The inside is better maintained. The couple who own the home take pride in it and will lovingly share its history; they were very cordial and did their best to make us comfortable. There is free parking and the house is within walking distance of restaurants and shops. There was lots of good food at breakfast. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace in our room. Overall a good value for the price.

Great place in Dubuque
The breakfasts and snacks were amazing (especially the pear cake, fruit and the cookies - all the food was awesome), the rooms were big and the caretakers were great! It was also very nice to have a refrigerator upstairs to put in leftovers and get self serve soda and wine. They gave us a little history on the place which was very interesting and were very accommodating to our schedule. We really enjoyed staying there and will be back again. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests too. Thank you!!!

Awesome stay - Great Breakfast!
This was the first time I've ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast, so I didn't know what to expect. The owners were quite personable. The house had beautiful original wood work and stained glass. Antique glass wear and lamps filled the mantels and cabinets in a beautiful rainbow display. My favorite part, however, was the very tasty breakfasts. I'm glad we stayed two nights so that we were able to enjoy a variety of wonderful dishes!
