Beautiful, convenient, and comfortable.Posted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: See above.
Cons: A few trees to screen the west side from the Music Man Square's gravel lot would add to the ambience.
Location: See above.
The rooms are lovely, with quality linens and very sharp-looking bathrooms. I loved the very pretty sink/vanity in the bedroom. Our room also had a balcony outside. Sally was very warm and hospitable, and breakfast (belgian waffle with blueberry sauce) was delicious. The house is walkable to all sorts of points-of-interest--half a block from the MacNider Art Museum, the public library, the mall; maybe two blocks from the Meredith Willson Footbridge and the Frank Lloyd Wright Hotel. I highly recommend staying here over a cookie-cutter hotel!

Loved the Victorian feel!!Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: The rooms were very nice and clean. Our hostess called me earlier in the day, so she was available to greet us upon arrival. I really appreciated that
Cons: It was great!
Location: Frank Lloyd Wright House, Music Man Museum, home, and Square
We had to leave early the first morning. We advised our hostess that we would miss breakfast. She said she would put something out for us, but I think she forgot. That was absolutely the only complaint I would have!

Impeccable, stately, historic B & B $1 mill. reno.Posted Jun 17, 2013
Pros: Wonderful appointments, antiques, historical building in excellent condition, furnished bar, excellent, friendly hostess, terrific breakfast.
Cons: Location, while bordering on beautiful neighborhoods, is also next to gravel parking lot, shopping mall and across street from Midas muffler shop.
Location: (see above) adjoining neighborhood of beautiful, architecturally significant homes, other buildings, within walking distance of restaurants, park.
Beautiful, immaculately cared for B & B which has undergone a million dollar renovation via Iowa Historic Foundation funding. Manager is terrific and very knowledgeable about both the home and the wonderful architecture of Mason City. She even loaned us her book of historic and architecturally significant homes. Even has a completely furnished bar available to guests at all times on the first floor.

Don't expect any breakfast before 9:00 AMPosted Jun 2, 2013
Pros: I played in this house as a child; long before its current incarnation.
Cons: Staff is there 24 * 7. On a Monday breakfast should be available on business hours
This is billed as a bed and breakfast. But breakfast was offered for 9:00 AM on a MONDAY. I was gone and busy working by 7:00 AM. Per night cost is $30.00 higher than the Country Inn and Suites which includes a hot breakfast starting at 6:00 AM on Mondays.

Beautiful housePosted Jul 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
A little disappointed in breakfast being at 9 am but I am to blame for not researching that prior to my reservation. The house if beautiful and service was very friendly.
