We stayed in Alice room which, to our surprise, is in a separate building down the street. Room was poorly laid out with two queen beds opposite each other so only one could view tv. Bathroom soaps etc are not premium and are dispensed from a push pump mounted on the shower wall. Tacky. Inadequate heat on a cold night. Breakfast is a little late at 8:30. Town center is a long walk; best to drive.

It is unfortunate these guests were unable to distinguish from our multiple marketing listings that our luxury Bed & Breakfast consists of two separate Victorian homes, our 1893 Queen Anne Main Devereaux Shields House and our 1873 Victorian Aunt Clara’s Cottage. We do allow guests to select between our more luxurious two 2-room suites in our main house and 4 more economical gracious guest rooms in our cottage. All our guest rooms do contain the same luxury Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities dispensed in wall-mounted eco-friendly containers to avoid the more typical and wasteful small bottles. We have found the vast majority of our guests, including families, girl-friends, or multiple guests traveling together, very much appreciate the multiple beds arrangement in our Alice Room that includes a queen bed and an antique full-tester canopy bed. The room includes a comfortable Victorian couch and stuffed chair for TV enjoyment besides the beds. The room does include a supplemental oil radiator electric heater stored in the closet. We do offer early or late breakfast options for guest’s convenience upon request. We are an easy 5-7 blocks or a 0.5 mile walk from the heart of downtown and an equal distance to an amazing view of the Mississippi River. Certainly driving is a quicker option, however a delightful stroll into town features a myriad of wonderful historic homes everywhere along the way to enjoy. We are sorry these guests seemed uptight about their stay and did not feel comfortable enough to bring these issues to our attention.
