Fourteen of us, ranging in ages from 1 to 68, stayed at the Grey House for 6 nights. It was absolutely fabulous! Amazing memories for all of us! Marie, Jill, and Jay made sure we had everything we needed, from a PackNPlay to wood for the fire pit and gas for the grill. There were fresh flowers in every room when we arrived, along with fresh basil and 3 beautiful tomatoes on the kitchen table. Beds were very comfortable, AC worked great, plenty of towels in the bathrooms. The grounds were gorgeous; wild turkeys (including 6 babies!) and deer roaming around. Jay knows so much fascinating history of the house and area! And he is dedicated to restoring and decorating everything accurately. We were so impressed with not only the work that has been done at Four Mounds, but how the Foundation is giving back to the community as well.

Now that I discovered Four Mounds as a BnB, I'll check first for availability, anytime I need a place to stay in Dubuque. It was the perfect retreat for respite and relaxation during my visit. The Majestic Suite is exceptional. Marie was a delightful host and the breakfasts were delicious.

I stayed at the White House and our whole family was there. It is more than comfy and the old house is amazing. The property has so much history that the Inn keeper Marie knows all the old stories. The whole property has hiking trails and great views! We brought our own food and never left the property all weekend. We all felt very Covid safe!

We have been coming here for a long time. But every time we come it’s like the first time again and again. If you want to stay in a unique, beautiful place (in my opinion, it’s the prime location in Dubuque), Definitely visit here! Social distancing at its best. Our recent visit was something special. SNOW!!! incredible beauty! Overall, it’s the cleanest , most characteristic place to stay! But the star of Four Mounds, is Marie! Incredible service and the nicest woman you would ever meet! She puts her heart and soul into this place! Thank you for everything! And we will be back!

I am the owner of Everybody Bend Yoga in Cedar Rapids, IA and when I thought about where to host my first yoga retreat, Four Mound was it! I'd personally stayed at the Marvin Gardens cabin several times, so it was an easy sell to think about renting out the Grey House with another yoga studio owner to hold the retreat. As always, Marie was extremely helpful and the Grey House and grounds were PERFECT. We had eight participants for the retreat and we held it in January 2020 - Friday through Sunday. Four Mounds is easy to find, and the rooms, house and cabin were beautifully decorated for the holidays, which the participants loved. We'd asked to use the dining room for yoga and it was emptied out when we got there, which was perfect. It was so nice that there's a pocket door and the lights are on dimmer so it "felt" like a cozy yoga space. The kitchen was perfect for preparing the meals and everyone took their food and ate in the living room. The living room fireplace was ablaze the whole weekend and Marie and Jay were extremely helpful when we ran low on wood. It was nice for the other instructor and me to stay separately in the cabin - but all our participants wanted to see it too, and commented on how perfect it was for a solo retreat. There's so much natural beautiful in this location, which makes it perfect for our event. Even though it snowed, the participants went outside to go check out the trails too, and we all saw a bald eagle multiple times. The cabin and the Grey House had everything we needed and I heard from the participants that the beds were "so comfortable." If you're looking for a retreat space or just a getaway, this is the place to go! Reasonably priced, great service, and just the right vibe.
