A trip to this wonderful B & B provides a chance to become part of the British aristocracy, if only for a few hours. I attended the luncheon there as a member of a women's club and, from the moment we walked through the door, we were treated like British royalty. We all donned a period costume which made us...

13 rooms with baths to accommodate large families and food is outstanding. Beautiful views of Mississippi River and Potter's Mill Restaurant nearby with great food and musical entertainment! Staff are so friendly and accommodating! Even more fun in summer with butterfly garden nearby!

This was an unforgettable stay. The place is magical and we felt welcome by the staff, specially Naomi. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It is a perfect place for couples. La Chapelle room is amazing. Also, the town has a great river front and great park.

This was our second visit to Mont Rest for a Murder/Mystery weekend getaway. Our first time was two years ago and we had such a fabulous time then we knew we had to come back. This trip was just as good, if not better! The Inn is beautifully maintained and exquisitely appointed with interesting antiques from far and wide. Naomi...

As a birthday gift for my partner, I booked the Murder Mystery Dinner and a room at the Inn. I found Mont Rest online, and after reading all of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, decided it was worth a try. The best way to describe our dinner experience and stay is that it wildly exceeded our expectations on every...

My husband and I had our first Bed and Breakfast experience here. We checked in on a Saturday night and participated in a Murder Mystery Dinner. We didn't know what to expect. The meal was AMAZING, Naomi and Chris were great and the Murder Mystery Dinner was SUPER fun. The staff assign the parts, and completely deck you out in...

Well I think really I'd like to give it 3 1/2 stars but I erred on the side of generosity. This place, the building is fantastic. The rooms are wonderful, we got to see some of the others before guests checked in. It's not a smooth glass and concrete hotel, it's a large home on the edge of some woods,...

I could not have imagined a better place to stay! The staff was absolutely wonderful, and made you feel at home. My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend, and the breakfast they served was delicious. You can tell that the staff take pride in their work! The next chance we get we are booking another stay. Very classy and...

My wife and I arrived on Friday evening. We attended the Murder Mystery Dinner with a large group of other guests. They had costumes we could wear that fit the description of the part you played in the mystery. It was entertaining and the food was terrific. We stayed in the Boardwalk Suite. King bed, fireplace, two-person hot tub, really...

Wonderful experience! Staff were friendly and VERY accommodating.All services performed with a manner both classy and warm. *BIG* points for this since we: accidentally arrived early, asked for a late check and had dietary considerations. I also managed to lose my grandmother's heirloom necklace in our room. Staff miraculously found it, after checkout, while cleaning the floor on their hands...
