Enjoyed a quick one night stay last week at Four Mounds Inn. Marie met us at the door and helped us lug our bag up to the room. We enjoyed the welcoming feeling and overall comfort of this beautiful house. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. This is a great place to go if you need to put life on "pause"...

The wooded setting high above the Mississippi River is the setting for this historic cozy retreat. After a winding journey up the single lane drive through the fall woods we came upon our destination. The other couple we were traveling with had stayed at the Inn previously and they had selected the White House for our 2 night stay. My...

Just returned from a 2 night stay in the Majestic River Suite in the Grey House. The house and grounds are enchanting. This is a unique Bed and Breakfast. The full breakfast was well presented and delicious. Staff was very friendly. We were given a history of the property as a "Gentleman's Farm" and were informed about the Four Mounds...

We have just returned home following five days at the Four Mounds. It was a WONDERFUL place to stay. Our room was the Majestic River Suite in the Grey House. I can't even describe how beautiful and peaceful it is. The room has an adjacent sleeping porch which has windows on all sides with fantastic views of the river and...

My sisters, cousins and I spend a weekend away every year to strengthen family ties and enjoy each other away from family obligations, etc. This year we chose to visit Dubuque, IA and Four Mounds Inn. What a wonderful find! Situated high above the Mississippi River on about 60 acres, we chose to stay in the smaller of the two...

So, this isn't a hotel or a traditional B&B, but an old estate on the outskirts of Dubuque, lovingly restored and now functioning as a retreat center, but also renting out their rooms in the houses on the estate to travelers. I've never staying in anywhere quite like it: it is peaceful, with views to die for of the river...

Absolutely perfect, stayed in the grey house master suite, best B&B ever. Rose is a lovely hostess, breakfast was wonderful! Beautiful view, spacious room with sleeping porch with big windows all around. Clean and tidy, grounds are wonderful with huge mature trees... Very peaceful, lots of birdsong. Will come back every season!

Peace and quiet in a beautiful mansion! Both the Grey House and the White House (where we stayed) were impeccably appointed and wonderfully comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and everyone who works there goes out of their way to make us feel at home (even though it IS a mansion!) Bonus is the river views, sitting at night under the stars...

We had the pleasure of spending the night in this incredible location, nestled on the outskirts of Dubuque, IA and sitting just above the Mississippi River.

This location is amazing when you want to escape it all and just appreciate nature. The property is heavily tree-lined with lots of shade. There are also spectacular views of the Mississippi from the gardens. Avid bird watchers will love the abundance of our feathered friends!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four Mounds is a historic estate located along the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. 60 acres of natural and cultured grounds feature three different, historic and unique options for lodging. Rent one room for a night or take over the whole site for a week. Our 1908 craftsman style Grey House features seven bedrooms and large gathering spaces. Our 1924 classically designed White House is more intimate and refined, with four bedrooms. Our 1950s cabin in the woods overlooks the river and provides rustic seclusion with all modern amenities, accommodating up to four people. Four Mounds is a unique getaway experience and when you discover it, you will fall in love. Dubuque is a culturally and economically vibrant river town that has great attractions and features year-round. Whether its an afternoon out on our trails, a trip to the National Mississippi River Museum, or a dinner excursion to the Potosi Brewery and National Brewery Museum... you will enjoy all that Dubuque has to offer. ... more   less
