Who wouldn't want to stay here?

5 on November 04, 2013

This lovely old house is nicely furnished with period pieces and gorgeous woodwork. It's set in a quiet neighborhood close to many of St. Paul's best eateries and great shopping. Bill sent us information regarding check in and breakfast beforehand which made everything easy for us. Our room was prepared as we'd requested and there was plenty of on street parking available. Kate's breakfasts were delicious and varied (we stayed a week) and there were many little extras in our room to ensure a comfortable stay. What we liked best about Cathedral Hill was Bill and his staff. They always went out of their way to assure we had everything we needed to make our visit fun and easy.


Charming and Elegant Bed and Breakfast

5 on April 08, 2013

When we first opened the door to the Cathedral Hill Bed and Breakfast we were in awe. The woodwork was absolutely beautiful and it invited you in to a wonderful experience. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and unique. The host, Bill, was wonderful. Not only does he cook a great breakfast but is a wonderful conversationalist. Bill makes you feel right at home. He suggested places to visit as well as giving us history of St. Paul. We would highly recommend staying at the Cathedral Hill Bed and Breakfast and We will be returning the next time we're in St. Paul.


Home away from home in St. Paul

Bill and Katy are wonderful hosts who make you feel right at home. The house and rooms are lovely, and the breakfasts are fresh, delicious, and well-prepared. Information about the neighborhood helped us find a great place for dinner too.


Very comfortable

Our stay at the Cathedral Hill was very comfortable. The room (Master Suite) was nice and very spacious. Our hosts were very polite and we really enjoyed walking over to Selby Ave dining and having a few drinks. The breakfast the next morning was good, but nothing gourmet.


Very comfortable and convenient

Would definitely stay here again. The owners were very helpful, house was gorgeous, bed comfortable, etc! Walking distance to Xcel Center is why we chose it in the first place.


like old friends

Bill and Katy are like the old friends you want to come and stay with. Not only for the comfort of their home and delicious breakfast, but it's their warmth, and the love they put into their B&B. After breakfast we would hung around before heading out in the afternoon. They have a beautiful quiet patio in the back where we could sit and read. Or we watched a video from their excellent collection. We also took walks. It was a wonderful stay.


A dreamy experience

5 on June 16, 2009

Our plane was late in arriving didn't get to B and B until around 3am. Owner happily opened front door and briefed us cheerifully before we went to bed. Beautiful victorian home. Charming decor and rich woodwork. Bed was huge and probably the best mattress I've ever slept on. No expense spared. Wonderful book, DVD and game library. We would have had no trouble staying entertained if we had a rainy day. Breakfast was generous, tasty and healthy. Bathroom included a variety of shampoos, soaps, and general sundries. Bath towels were large and high quality cotton - not the small less absorbant ones so often used. Mini - fridge with Britta Pitcher of water and a nice supply of sodas was provided in our room. With only 3 rooms at the B and B we really felt special. Looking forward to our next visit to St. Paul. Best B and B experience we've had and we've stayed at quite a few - particularly in New England.


Sleepless in St. Paul

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the lovely oak lined Holly Ave off Summit. Delightful, quiet, impeccable service and a scrumptuous breakfast to send me off on my business day.


Wonderful home and service

4.6 on June 09, 2009

We enjoyed our stay at Cathedral Hill Bed and Breakfast. It's a wonderful and beautiful house located in a nice neighborhood close to many restaurants and bars. The rooms are large, the showers are hot and sheets are clean. Breakfast was always a treat and we felt welcome coming in and out of the home. My only grip was that the couch in the larger suite is a bit dated and uncomfortable. We only watched a little TV, but ideally the couch would get upgraded. We'll be back!


Paradise in a great neighborhood!
