What a lovely stay in a lovely property! My husband and I stayed at the Bellevue for our first year anniversary weekend. Linda and Brian were fantastic hosts. The house is immaculate. And if you love historic homes, you will truly enjoy this one! Brian and Linda have put a lot of time and effort into the restoration of this beautiful Victorian home. Linda's decorating skills and small nuances, truly make you feel as if you've stepped back in time, but with a modern flair. And the food! By far, this was the best three-course breakfast I have had in any B&B I have stayed in. You will definitely enjoy your stay. As far as the privacy is concerned, you will have plenty of it. Brian and Linda, although great host, do not smother you. They are around in the morning to serve you breakfast, and available to you by phone if you should need them. But leave you to your privacy to enjoy your getaway. What a great time!
The Bellevue B&B is a real gem. It's a beautifully restored house that was built in the 1890s. It's a block away from the Cape Girardeau historic district which offers a lot of nice restaurants and access to the Mississippi Riverfront Park. Also very close to the main campus and river campus of SE Missouri State U. Very clean, very quiet. The breakfast was a little rich for our tastes, but expertly prepared and beautifully served. Brian and LInda are gracious and informative hosts. Only wish the mattress on the bed was firmer, but again, that's a personal preference. Would definitely stay again.
This was our second one night stay at the Bellevue Bed and Breakfast. This is a tastefully decorated, immaculate, historical home, in peaceful surroundings, with a wonderful quiet patio to sit and enjoy the outdoor garden, trees and flowers, front porch is great too! Breakfast was wonderful and kept us going until dinner! Hospitable, friendly, but unobtrusive owners/hosts! Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back!
Cape Girardeau is a lovely little college town on the Mississippi River. The Bellevue Bed and Breakfast is a well-maintained home with lovely decor and landscaping. The breakfast was delicious and graciously presented on fine china. The owners are very hospitable, attentive to every detail. I highly recommend a stay at the Bellevue in Cape Girardeau!
We had a lovely stay. The rooms were beautifully appointed, the gardens lush, and the food outstanding. I really enjoyed the breakfasts, both the food and conversation. I would definitely recommend Bellevue B&B and would stay there again next time I am in town.
We had an amazing weekend at Bellevue Bed and Breakfast. The entire home was immaculate, extremely well thought out decor and perfectly clean. We stayed in the "Highlands" room for two nights. I was worried that the jacuzzi tub for that room would be too small for two, but it is much bigger than the photos suggest; it is clearly built for two. The couple that owns the building was extremely hospitable. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. Brian even scraped the ice off of my car the morning we left. Linda cooks a three course breakfast every morning that is truly exceptional. Each dish is carefully crafted and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Bellevue. It is really an incredible value; you get so much more than a standard hotel. Amazing food, service, and rooms. We will definitely be back.
The host and hostess were attentive, pleasant and helpful. It was our anniversary and Brian took care of recommending and making reservations at a first class restaurant. Linda is a gourmet cook extraordinaire. The three course breakfasts were different each day and everything was prepared and served with a flair. Each breakfast item was a piece of art as well as being VERY delicious. Bed comfortable, room very clean. The home has been beautifully restored to its original glory along with the furnishings, which match the age of the house.
We were the only guests during our stay and were here for our anniversary. We are always concerned about late October being the 'off season' wherever we stay and most of the shops not being open. I don't guess most people would think of Cape as a normal tourist destination anyway but, in any case, everything was open and this B&B is located right down in the old Cape part of town down by the river. We always head straight for the older parts of town and the kitschy shops so this was perfect for us. The breakfasts at this B&B are to die for...and I don't normally even eat breakfast! Three separate items were served each breakfast, every one exquisitely prepared and extremely tasty. Very filling and by 2PM we were barely able to even eat lunch. The room was very clean and very comfortable...we stayed in the Girardot Room. Linda even surprised us with a Halloween treat basket left on our doorstep for our anniversary! Very nice touch and very much appreciated!
The weekend I spent there was wonderful. We had all 4 bedrooms for a get away weekend with my sisters and bonus sisters (cousins) and Linda and Brian couldn't have made our stay any more pleasant. The breakfast was superb and their care of us...down to the chocolate treats at bedtime was just thoughtful and well planned. We will be staying there again.
My wife and I stayed at Bellevue this last weekend and we had stayed at 3 others earlier in the week on our trek trough Missouri. We saved the best for last. The B&B was very well kept, the fridge was fully stocked, the ambience was awesome, food terrific and the hosts most gracious. Definitely will return.
Curious Europeans as we are, we hoped to find somewhere "different" to stay overnight when going from St. Louis to Atlanta. And indeed we did! This beautiful Victorian mansion is maintained and managed to perfection by its very sympathetic owners. It seemed they had thought about everything to make the room, the house, the garden and the delicious gourmet breakfast look its best and the guests feel happy and comfortable. Remarkable, and definitely worth a detour! Trine and CarlE
we stayed at the Bellevue two night and it was fantastic. This place is spotless and the service is great. The food is Gourmet. We usually sleep in when we stay at other places but we got up in the morning to eat the breakfast. Do not miss it. Best B& B we have ever stayed at.!!!
The breakfast was amazing! The bed was the only disappointing thing. It was uncomfortable and felt like it needed replacing. Our overall experience was wonderful and I would definitely go back. Linda is a wonderful cook and Brian was a great host.
Everything was top notch at this B&B, especially the food and cleanliness. I was traveling for business and needed to eat before the normal breakfast time which was no problem. The hosts were more than accommodating. You can walk to everything in the historic downtown from this location and there is a relaxing deck at the back of the property. The bed was a tad soft for my liking, but that is the only con. Breakfast is extremely delicious and you can have seconds!
We welcomed by Brian and given a small history as he showed us the house and our room. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was 3 course and great, no lunch needed. We will be back on our next trip to Cape
What we remember the most is the large amount of food for breakfast. We were almost full when the main course was brought to the table. The food had an amazing taste. The food was absolutely delicious. Furthermore, the atmosphere was romantic, relaxing, and old fashion. I loved taking a bath in the old fashion tube in the bathroom of the Cove. The bed was amazingly soft and comfy. Our wedding photographer even got a few shots of us in and outside the house during our engagement session. Perfect get away spot for a couple to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. We will definitely return.
