    Grand old house
    We will definitely stay her again. Our hosts were very accommodating and knowledgeable of the history of the house as they have owned it for 30 years. Our room was spacious and filled with antique furnishings. The bathroom was updated with a large walk in shower. Chocolate chip cookies and desserts were offered free for evening snacks. The only negative is that their was exterior construction but the price reflected that. The breakfast was excellent and the conversation lively. This was a great alternative to a typical hotel stay. Dubuque is a lovely town and the owners were familiar with the area and even directed us to a lovely Italian cafe nearby, Mario’s, which served large portions and delicious food.

    This is THE B&B to stay at when in Dubuque!
    There are not enough superlatives to describe how happy we were with our five-day stay at the Richards House Bed and Breakfast. Convenient, extremely reasonably priced, the most friendly owners you'd ever want to meet... and then there were the breakfasts! Breakfast time was fit for royalty, with four or five homemade specialties each morning. In addition to ample amounts of coffee, juice, and fresh fruit, we were served (all made from scratch) quiche and souffles and other fun ways to prepare eggs, waffles, a myriad of cakes, bacon, syrups, and so on. If you are an antique buff who likes to eat, you might never venture out of the building, as there are literally hundreds of antiques and historical items relating to the Richards House which are placed throughout the entire building. Definitely a home-away-from-home feeling, which is ALWAYS welcome!
