Great place

4.8 on February 20, 2015

Me and my husband loved the place, it's quite and privet, it's a great place to get away from the city. Breakfast was delicious! We are already talking about coming back:)

Beautiful room, nice safe location, good stay overall :)

We stayed in the Deluxe room - BEAUTIFUL room but a little close to the entrance. Good amenities overall, owners were easy to contact, and like the description says they really value privacy. The breakfast felt more like a hotel experience with a help yourself continental breakfast in the kitchen. Great value for a B&B and we would certainly do it again.

Great ambiance!

I loved that while we were still in the city, it was a quiet neighborhood set in the historic district of Dubuque. Breakfast was fantastic with so much variety. The Deluxe Suite was worth every cent!

Very appreciative of the privacy and quiet of the SLH. Understated but pseudo-artsy / antique meets contemporary. A wonderful breakfast which included fresh fruit / raspberries. One of my favorite B&B's. A big shout-out to the Innkeepers! Jo & Lori

Quiet stay

4.6 on September 29, 2014

Enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet- we never saw another soul which was a little unsettling to us but we enjoyed everything. It was nice to have movies to watch and the breakfast was wonderful.

Great Labor Day Stay

Very responsive hosts. Great location to explore Dubuque and the Mississippi River. If you like privacy, you've got it here. Would stay here again.

First Timers

First time staying in a B&B. Was a great expectation and was great to have a room and not be in a hotel. This one was great because of the location to the casino, downtown and all the resturants. Will be staying at more B&B and if we stay in Dubuque again we will stay here if possible.

Great Place!

We stayed in the Deluxe Sweet and LOVED it! Very private, which is just how my husband and I like it. We didn't see owners of the location, breakfast was out and ready for us by 9am. This was a small place, quaint, and the tub in that room was one I wish I could have taken with us. It was a great experience, so relaxing, we loved it.

Very Nice, Quiet, and Private Stay!

My wife and I had a lovely time in the Delux Suite. It was very private. We were well taken care of but never saw another person in the house during our stay. The breakfast was very good and varied. The house is just a short distance from the Dubuque river front. Over all a very good stay. We would recommend it!

Nice night away

3.2 on November 08, 2012

My husband and I spent a night in the deluxe suite room. The house is in a neat, old historic part of Dubuque. I really liked the room. The toilet area was a little tight, but I thought it was kind of cute actually. You probably won't see the inn keepers too much, if at all, but that's what they are going for, it seems. My husband and I didn't mind, as we just wanted to get away from home for a night and enjoy each other's company. In the morning, they had warm muffins out, fresh fruit plates, and waffle mixes ready to make at our leisure. There was juice, milk, coffee, tea, and cereal available too. All in all, our stay was enjoyable.
