We stayed here for a weekend getaway. We have stayed at many bed & breakfasts and this is the best yet. The house seems to be perfectly restored to the original condition. The owner has decorated with period correct furnishings. The entire home is immaculate and the room we stayed in was so clean. We had a tour of the entire home and loved it. The breakfast in the morning and desserts served at 8 in the evening exceeded our expectations. Excellent food. The owner and other ladies working there are the best. Thank you for a perfect weekend. We will definitely go back!!

My wife and I recently (25SEP15) stayed at Squire's Manor for two nights. We had a great experience. Kathy and Virl are outstanding hosts and the accommodations were excellent. Not to mention the breakfast, which was out of this world. Great place to stay and well worth the very reasonable rates.

My husband and I stayed at the Manor for two nights recently in the bridal suite. It was like walking back in time and so beautifully decorated. The food was wonderful and Kathy and Virl were such excellent hosts. I would recommend staying here and hope to stay here again.

Did a random pick on the internet and this is second to none compared to other B&B's we have stayed in. Immaculate, furnishings true to the era, and meeting new friends was a bonus. The town itself has a rich history of culture one would not expect.

We had a very enjoyable stay in this very charming lovely old home. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was superb, with many dishes made from fresh produce grown in the back yard.

We paid a little more than we had hoped to, but we certainly got what we paid for. The room, service, and food far exceeded our expectations. Wish the hosts were younger so we could count on them running the business for another 20 years.

I have had only one other experience with a B&B that was, shall we say, less than stellar. My experience at Squires Manor was even better than expected! Kathy is an amazing baker/cook/hostess. She and Virl were so welcoming, it was like staying with friends by the time we left. The house is beautiful, rooms immaculate, comfortable, and stocked with amenities that rival any hotel. The manor and neighborhood make you feel as if you're in a movie set of "the good old days." I enjoyed my stay and will definitely return. I highly, highly recommend Squires Manor to anyone.

We stayed in Harriet Squiers room and it was beautiful. Had a wonderful breakfast the next morning. Met some really nice people who were also staying at the B&B. The owners were very nice and knowledgeable about the history of the house. Looking forward to staying here again.

I have stayed quite a few times and wouldn't stay anywhere else when coming back to Maquoketa. Virl and Kathy have always made me feel like one of the family; even from my first stay. I'm planning on staying two different times in June and can't wait! Thank you Virl and Kathy for all you do!
