Beautiful, historic home!

I enjoyed the Butler House. It was well kept, and the dining room and foyer were beautiful! The breakfasts were also delicious. I would absolutely recommend it!

Beautiful home!

The innkeeper was very accommodating to welcome our son and his girlfriend to join us for breakfast even in the last minute. A great introduction to the world of Bed and Breakfasts!!!

A wonderful stay again.

Love This Place

We enjoyed our stay once again at the Butler House. Lovely rooms, great host, scrumptious food. The town of Mankato has a variety of dining options. We'll go again. One minor complaint is that we had to wait outside for about 5 minutes for somebody to come to the door. Kind of inconvenient on a nippy November day. We had this one other time on a visit...that time for about 20 minutes. Both times we arrived between the allotted hours. Still, we will go back.

Wonderful visit in Mankato

Wonderful host. Room was very clean and very quiet. Could not hear other guests and this was great. Charming room. Only drawback was that we had a storm that night and for some reason the oven did not work the next morning. Wonderful food that was served, but regrettably we missed out on the full experience due to the oven. Definitely will stay here again if we are back in the Mankato area.

Pleasant stay

Lovely old house with cluttered decor, old television and mattress--similar to other B&B's. On the plus side, breakfast was tasty and other guests were fun to converse with--again, similar to general B&B experience. Mattress would be a deal-killer for another stay.

Very Relaxed!

It was our second stay in this lovely home and if possible we enjoyed it even more this time around. A beautiful home, friendly host, quiet peaceful environment, a wonderful getaway.

Excellent stay for the price

My husband and I stayed just one night for a quick get-away. The room was quiet and well furnished with everything fully operational. We stayed in the early spring and the room was a bit chilly, especially in the evening and night. I'd recommend bringing a sweatshirt or heavier clothing. The breakfast was delicious and overall our stay was very relaxing.
