A Step Back in Time

5 on August 06, 2018

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this historical mansion in Alton, Mo. Jim, Sandy and their staff were kind, warm and welcoming and our room was spacious and comfortable...it was the best B&B experience we've experienced. Jim's welcome and introduction, complete with the historical narrative of the Beall Mansion, was a delight. We went with the Gourmet Breakfast option and we were delighted with the three course breakfast...an appetizer and dessert were part of the experience. I know we will return.

My wife and I have stayed at the Beall Mansion several times and we are always so pleased by the elegant and relaxing rooms. It is such a beautiful spot for a romantic getaway. It is a treat to be surrounded by such lovely and ornate furnishings. We would highly recommend a weekend stay to any couple.

Lovely place!

My husband and I stayed at the Beall Mansion for our anniversary. The service was excellent! Jim could not have been more welcoming, and we appreciated learning the history of the house from him. The mansion is lovely, as are the rooms. But what made the experience extra-special were the little things that Jim and his wife did - champgne when we arrived, brandy for a nightcap, 24/7 chocolate buffet, chocolate truffles on our bed, brewing us a fresh pot of coffee over breakfast, etc. We loved our stay and definitely recommend it!


Extraordinary

A lovely getaway with top notch service. Jim and his wife really care about making your stay perfect.


Terrific Visit!

Large, comfortable suite, two-person jacuzzi, very comfortable king canopy bed, fireplace, outstanding optional gourmet breakfasts! This was our second stay (in the Z. B. Job Jr. Suite). If you're looking for a perfect place for a couple's getaway, this is it. Couldn't ask for a more pleasant host and hostess. Jim is very knowledgeable of the history of the Mansion and is the perfect host; Sandy is delightful to engage in conversation and goes the extra mile in the kitchen to keep the guests happy. Example: Sandy went above and beyond for us when on Thursday night I gave her a very last-minute request for a meat-less Friday-morning-during-Lent breakfast. Totally my fault for failing to include this in the before-arrival special requests email. She came through famously with a fantastic quiche! Thank you, Sandy! Saturday morning's breakfast was another masterpiece. Jim and Sandy - thank you! (Cheryl & Doug).

Jim, the owner, was very pleasant and provided excellent service. Deep fluffy beds, relaxing whirlpool tub and a beautiful historic home to explore. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend getaway.


Perfect Getaway!

The Beall Mansion was the perfect place for my husband and and I to celebrate our anniversary! Victorian elegance and charm flowed throughout, from the architecture and decor to the food and service. Breakfast was stunning and delicious! I highly recommend the Beall Mansion!


Elegant and delicious with stimulating conversation

We stayed with our friends for their 15 year anniversary and were pleasantly surprised by the ornate details of this beautiful establishment. Jim, the owner took us around and gave us a comprehensive background of the building and answered all of our questions with concise and educated responses. The breakfast was outstanding not to mention the fabulous vintage of champagne at check in. Also the chocolate bar was a nice touch. If you stay I strongly recommend the gourmet package. Highly recommended !


Beautiful, Romantic B&B
