Rose was warm and welcoming from the first phone call! And when we arrived to a beautifully appointed, fresh, expansive Clarke Manor, we knew we would enjoy our stay and return! It has it all -- wonderful host, beautiful rooms in expansive inn, excellent breakfast, afternoon biscotti and wine! Beautiful view from rooftop! Love, love, loved it!

All us siblings stayed here, 6 of us, while in Dubuque to celebrate older sister's 50th wedding anniversary. Innkeeper Rose added to our pleasure of the occasion; rooms & grounds were spotless. Even had a fountain.

Rose, Thank you so much for your warm welcome and hospitality during my stay. It was wonderful for me during a difficult week. I love the house and can't wait to be back again in June, under better circumstances then! You and the homes friendliness was a welcome relief. Sincerely, Rebecca

Ok, so where do I start.... Rose, the inn keeper is amazing! She made our stay so fantastic! The rooms were beautiful and I started to feel like I didnt know which one to pick because I liked them all so much, but in the end we chose the Golden Gate Room and LOVED it! It was our first time at a B&B and I could not have been happier. I loved how this place was set above town in a really nice local area with low traffic and yet town was only 2 minutes away. Perfect location. The views from the Cupola were amazing and we got some really great photographs of the night skyline from there. Overall I would go there again and again! Cant wait to get the girls together now for the next trip and make a ladies weekend out of it! Thank you again Rose, it was such an honor to meet you and we appreciate the wonderful breakfast, evening cookies, snacks, wine and all that you did to make our stay worth it.
