8/10 Very good

Nice, historic building and setting. Modern amenities were very nice. I didn't see or personally talk to any staff or management on site. Jesus fish on the sign in front of the building, so watch your rights.

Very beautiful room and grounds. I would suggest stocking more espresso for keuring and having a better option for drinking water available.

10/10 Exceptional

In a quiet, neighborhood this stately old home was a pleasure to stay at. From our bedroom and our little second floor sunroom, we had a view over the beautiful St. Croix River Valley. A parking lot next to the house made it easy to get off the street and bring bags into the house. We loved it.
