Steve was great. Breakfast wonderful and the Mansion is just a beautiful reminder of our wonderful past.

We almost stayed in a cookie cutter hotel, but booked a night in this charming bed and breakfast instead. It was just a quick overnight stay for business, but I wish we could have stayed longer! The best parts of staying on this property were the amazing woodwork in this 1907 house and the warm, friendly innkeeper. After a quick tour and a quick tutorial on door locks, we were left on our own in complete privacy and solitude to explore the lovely mansion and enjoy our room. Afternoon tea with shortbread cookies and zucchini bread were thoughtfully left out for us. Husband deemed the zucchini bread "great." If our stay would have been longer, I would have enjoyed playing Scrabble in the library, riding our bikes around the fascinating neighborhood, and exploring the quaint little town. Steve, the innkeeper, asked us the night before what time we wanted to have breakfast and made us a delicious hot breakfast of eggs, sausage, biscuit, potatoes, coffee, and juice. We stayed in the large room with the whirlpool for two. I found the entire property very clean, and I am very picky about hotel rooms being hygienic. We would recommend this bed and breakfast for its comfortable atmosphere and clean room.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our wedding night and it was very quiet and private even though there was another couple staying a few doors down. The rooms are not huge, but that's part of the charm of staying in an old mansion instead of the Wynn or something. We had fun exploring all of the nooks and crannies of the mansion the night we arrived; it felt like we had the run of the place. We were also offered tea and snacks of zucchini bread and cookies the night we arrived. Everything was lovely. Breakfast the next morning was very good (sausage, eggs, potatoes, and cream-cheese-and-cherry stuffed French toast, with plenty of coffee, tea, and juice available) and there was a lot of pleasant conversation with the other couple who stayed the same night. The only thing I will say is definitely come here if you want something quirky; if you're interested in sleek, modern amenities, you won't find that here. Our bathtub/shower area was a big basin with a shower head and mirrors on three of four sides, but there was no shower curtain which was kind of bizarre. I was really worried about making a huge mess when I took a shower, but it was no big deal and they left plenty of towels so it wasn't hard to clean up.

The Mansion B&B is a classic century old home that is perfectly restored with elegance and charm galore. We spent two very restful nights with a delicious breakfast. Located two short blocks from the shops and restaurants of West Dundee we found the location perfect.We can highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Lester & Diane

The John Fierke (sp?) Suite was amazing; its very large with a two person Jacuzzi tub which was such a special draw to the room. Great location for a small town feel yet close to so many great shopping and eating businesses.

Mr. Fang provided not only a great place of respite, but also some great history of the Mansion and the community. We were made to feel at home. Local places of interest were provided including restaurants within walking distance. The room was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, and the company great. We would highly recommend The Mansion for its charm, decor, and grace. This is also a great community to to get out for a stroll and take in the view and character of the local shops. JESSE AND RUTH

I highly recommend The Mansion for a unique Fox River Vally experience. Should be especially nice for Dickens in Dundee!

My wife and I take an early December getaway each year. Online reservations were exceedingly easy and next day personal confirmation was great. Upon arrival the pictures did not do The Mansion justice. The exterior and interior were decorated for the holidays very tastefully and it felt like a step back in time. We stayed in the Fierke suite. The room was a lot larger than we expected. The raised bed and adjoining double whirlpool impressed us. The room as was the rest of the mansion was very tidy and dust free. Steve made sure everything was attended to. Because we are early (stupid early) risers, we asked for coffee in the morning. He set up a fresh pot of coffee both days. Our best surprise was breakfast. We would have been happy with breakfast rolls, croissants and the likes... But Steve and Eda made a full breakfast that filled us until dinner. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and it was great. Our host was awesome and makes a delicious breakfast. The surrounding area was delightful. You walk only a couple of blocks to a charming area with restaurants and shops.

Great place in a really nice area, we had a wonderful visit. This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and it was better than we expected. The mansion is comfortable and clean, and has a somewhat old-fashioned feeling to it. There are plenty of rooms to sit and relax in. Steve was a wonderful host and the breakfasts were delicious. It's located in an ideal spot in West Dundee, just next to the quaint downtown area and river. The perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing weekend.

This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in. My husband and I have come back three years in a row and plan to continue that tradition. The owners are amazing and great to be around. The mansion is beautiful.

A beautiful old home just a few blocks from the Fox River and some great restaurants in West Dundee. Steve and Eda have done a wonderful job restoring this beautiful, big home. The high ceilings and the stained glass are a reminder of what things were like in another era.

The mansion is a beautiful property in a peaceful neighborhood, which is walking distance from a few great restaurants and chocolate shop. Steve, the owner, was very hospitable and nice to talk to, as well. We had a great stay there.

The location was perfect and future stays will give us an opportunity to explore more of West Dundee. Restaurants were very close, within walking distance. Hospitality, from our arrival to a lovely breakfast coupled with lively conversation with our host, was excellent. Our room was perfect for the two of us, with the only concern being the height of the entry to the tub/shower. Entry and exit to the Mansion, and parking, were very easy.

We loved our stay here. Steve gave us such a warm welcome. We unfortunately did not get to meet Eda, who is a wonderful cook, but we just loved the stay- we stayed at the super romantic John Fierke room. The house has such an amazing history at 103 years old! Thank you again!

When ever I travel I stay at a B&B if possible. I looked at several in the area before settling on the Mansion. The website doesn't do such an interesting building justice. Steve was very friendly and gracious to answer all my questions. It was clear Steve has a love of preservation and does his best to keep the B&B authentic. I was very surprised at the delicious breakfasts. I have been disappointed so often in the past. The highlight of my trip to work Chicago was staying at the Mansion.

Stayed at the Mansion while on a recent business trip. The location, tucked away in a gorgeous neighbohood is a two block walk from West Dundee's downtown. Restaurants, shopping and more are all within a very short walk. The owner was very courteous and helpful and made a fantastic breakfast in the morning. Looking forward to my next visit to the area!

My wife and I have stayed at a handful of B&B's over the last two years. The Mansion did not disappoint. Our host was extremely friendly. He informed us of all the things to do in the area, and cooked up a wonderful breakfast. The Mansion itself was a treat. Combining modern amenities with the charm of the early 1900's made for a very enjoyable stay. We will be back.

This was our third stay at The Mansion and we always enjoy it. It is a beautiful place. Everything was delightful except we felt the pillows were too worn and we didn't care for the hazelnut flavored coffee.

My wife and I went to the Mansion B&B for our 13th wedding anniversary. The building looks amazing. The interiors are spacious, yet cozy. Our room, which included a balcony, private whirlpool, lav and a sitting room, was great. Steve was very friendly and accommodating. Eda's breakfast was delicious (I assume it was her, although I never did see her.) I would recommend the Mansion to anyone who wants to get away for the weekend without spending a ton of money, or having to go far from Chicago.

Steve, the host at Mansion B & B, was accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and the house quiet at the time we visited. The breakfast as outstanding. My only complaint is that check in was 4 p.m. and check-out 11 a.m. leaving us with a less than 24 hour stay. I don't usually splurge on a bed and breakfast and would have appreciated a 24-hour stay for the price we paid.

The innkeeper was very friendly and the breakfast was yum. We highly recommend this b&b to any couple!

What a charming B&B! Steve the owner was wonderful and extremely informative. Breakfast was fantastic, (unfortunately my boyfriend and I had eaten to much the night before.) everything was delicious. I would highly recommend this B&B for a getaway anytime!!
