My girlfriend (when we checked in) and I really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was kind and courteous, and the mansion was very charming. Everything we wanted or needed was provided and nothing was missing. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice as was the little Italian restaurant a couple blocks away where we dined. The river was just another block down from there so there's plenty to do surrounding the mansion and it's all within walking distance. Breakfast was excellent! My fiancé (when we checked out :) and I had a great experience here and would definitely recommend a stay.

We had a beautiful stay in July 2016. The house has a wonderful architecture and a charming flair of the good old times. It is huge, and Steven is a super nice guy. Suites are well maintained and breakfast very tasty. A 35 minute drive to O'Hare. Perfect stay outside of Chicago.

We had a great stay at The Mansion for one night. The hosts are very nice and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious. They also had around the clock butterscotch cookies and tea. The house has a nice old charm to it, and the room was cozy. (John F. Fierke Suite)

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at The Mansion, the feel and the look took us back to more elegant historical times, so if you like the early 1900s this is the place for you. Our host and owner Steve was wonderful and very helpful besides a really good cook, cheese omelette was fantastic. Thank you, Steve and a shout out to his wife she made incredible butterscotch cookies.

This is a remarkable old home in a charming neighborhood. The mansion is beautiful — we especially liked the breakfast nook, but the exterior shows a little wear and tear. Steve was a great host, who wasn't intrusive but was available to chat about the house and make recommendations for local restaurants when we wanted to talk. He made us a fine breakfast, too.

Wonderful stay at The Mansion! Steve was a great host, great cook and excellent conversationalist. The room was gorgeous, the bed was very comfortable, and the entire area was quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!

The night we stayed, we were the only guests so we got Steve's full attention. He is a delightful host, a great cook and an even better spinner of stories. This amazing house from the gilded age has many to tell.

Our stay went without a hitch. The innkeeper was so kind. Ourroom was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious!

From his greeting at the door when we first arrived, to his careful and gracious attendance to our every need, the owner Steve was the consummate host! Delightful details like hot tea in the afternoon, freshly backed cookies and a scrumptious breakfast served up with endless coffee, fresh orange juice (thanks, Eda!) and fascinating historical details about the mansion and the city made our stay here so very pleasant. Easy walking distance to great shopping and dining, the Mansion proved to be a very special place to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary! Thanks so much, Steve and Eda!

Fascinating old home with individually decorated rooms and baths in a quiet and charming neighborhood setting with many other interesting older homes. Very clean. Our bed was super comfortable! Owner was welcoming, friendly, gracious and helpful. Downtown West Dundee is a short 2 block walk in which there are several very nice restaurants and a lovely walking path by the Fox River. We have stayed at many B&B's and we totally enjoyed our stay at The Mansion from start to finish!

Beautiful home. The public areas of the house where great, lovely antiques and well decorated and maintained. The room and upper hall way carpets where dated and very worn. The bath room was clean but well worn and could use some TLC. More pillows would be nice. Room security was a concern as only door chain lock worked. We like the overall experience and would come again.

The home is simply beautiful. And the service was superb. It really couldn't have been better in any way. It was perfect place to spend a honeymoon. We look forward to spending our anivarsaries there as well. -Michael & Gidget Stajduhar

Great old house being renovated to its true glory. The host is very personable and willing to explain the history of the house and how the renovation has been accomplished. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

Aside from a few needed updates the Mansion is an awesome place. I will consider another stay if in the area again. Rooms and home were clean and comfortable. Service was exceptional yet not smothering. Breakfast was top notch!

My husband and I stayed one night for our 20th anniversary. Steve accommodated our needs without even being asked directly. We enjoyed our conversations with him, and he was helpful in suggesting places to visit during our stay. The ro was clean and charming, and although we were the only guests that evening, there were snacks and beverages available for us in the dining room.
4.6 on August 06, 2014
This was my first stay at a bed & breakfast, it was wonderful. The hosts were great, showed us through the house, and recommended places to visit. The room was beautiful, we stayed in the Terrace Suite. We will definitely be going back, I recommend this place to anyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Mansion this past weekend and we had a great time. Steve, the owner, was incredibly friendly and helpful while still giving us our space. Our room was VERY clean (which is definitely appreciated when there is a whirlpool involved) and decorated in a way that fits really well with the style of the building. Steve gave us great direction the next morning about where to go and we had a fantastic time in the adorable little town. Definitely a recommended getaway.

We almost stayed in a cookie cutter hotel, but booked a night in this charming bed and breakfast instead. It was just a quick overnight stay for business, but I wish we could have stayed longer! The best parts of staying on this property were the amazing woodwork in this 1907 house and the warm, friendly innkeeper. After a quick tour and a quick tutorial on door locks, we were left on our own in complete privacy and solitude to explore the lovely mansion and enjoy our room. Afternoon tea with shortbread cookies and zucchini bread were thoughtfully left out for us. Husband deemed the zucchini bread "great." If our stay would have been longer, I would have enjoyed playing Scrabble in the library, riding our bikes around the fascinating neighborhood, and exploring the quaint little town. Steve, the innkeeper, asked us the night before what time we wanted to have breakfast and made us a delicious hot breakfast of eggs, sausage, biscuit, potatoes, coffee, and juice. We stayed in the large room with the whirlpool for two. I found the entire property very clean, and I am very picky about hotel rooms being hygienic. We would recommend this bed and breakfast for its comfortable atmosphere and clean room.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our wedding night and it was very quiet and private even though there was another couple staying a few doors down. The rooms are not huge, but that's part of the charm of staying in an old mansion instead of the Wynn or something. We had fun exploring all of the nooks and crannies of the mansion the night we arrived; it felt like we had the run of the place. We were also offered tea and snacks of zucchini bread and cookies the night we arrived. Everything was lovely. Breakfast the next morning was very good (sausage, eggs, potatoes, and cream-cheese-and-cherry stuffed French toast, with plenty of coffee, tea, and juice available) and there was a lot of pleasant conversation with the other couple who stayed the same night. The only thing I will say is definitely come here if you want something quirky; if you're interested in sleek, modern amenities, you won't find that here. Our bathtub/shower area was a big basin with a shower head and mirrors on three of four sides, but there was no shower curtain which was kind of bizarre. I was really worried about making a huge mess when I took a shower, but it was no big deal and they left plenty of towels so it wasn't hard to clean up.

The Mansion B&B is a classic century old home that is perfectly restored with elegance and charm galore. We spent two very restful nights with a delicious breakfast. Located two short blocks from the shops and restaurants of West Dundee we found the location perfect.We can highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Lester & Diane

The John Fierke (sp?) Suite was amazing; its very large with a two person Jacuzzi tub which was such a special draw to the room. Great location for a small town feel yet close to so many great shopping and eating businesses.

Mr. Fang provided not only a great place of respite, but also some great history of the Mansion and the community. We were made to feel at home. Local places of interest were provided including restaurants within walking distance. The room was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, and the company great. We would highly recommend The Mansion for its charm, decor, and grace. This is also a great community to to get out for a stroll and take in the view and character of the local shops. JESSE AND RUTH

My wife and I take an early December getaway each year. Online reservations were exceedingly easy and next day personal confirmation was great. Upon arrival the pictures did not do The Mansion justice. The exterior and interior were decorated for the holidays very tastefully and it felt like a step back in time. We stayed in the Fierke suite. The room was a lot larger than we expected. The raised bed and adjoining double whirlpool impressed us. The room as was the rest of the mansion was very tidy and dust free. Steve made sure everything was attended to. Because we are early (stupid early) risers, we asked for coffee in the morning. He set up a fresh pot of coffee both days. Our best surprise was breakfast. We would have been happy with breakfast rolls, croissants and the likes... But Steve and Eda made a full breakfast that filled us until dinner. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

Great place in a really nice area, we had a wonderful visit. This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and it was better than we expected. The mansion is comfortable and clean, and has a somewhat old-fashioned feeling to it. There are plenty of rooms to sit and relax in. Steve was a wonderful host and the breakfasts were delicious. It's located in an ideal spot in West Dundee, just next to the quaint downtown area and river. The perfect place for a peaceful, relaxing weekend.

The location was perfect and future stays will give us an opportunity to explore more of West Dundee. Restaurants were very close, within walking distance. Hospitality, from our arrival to a lovely breakfast coupled with lively conversation with our host, was excellent. Our room was perfect for the two of us, with the only concern being the height of the entry to the tub/shower. Entry and exit to the Mansion, and parking, were very easy.

We loved our stay here. Steve gave us such a warm welcome. We unfortunately did not get to meet Eda, who is a wonderful cook, but we just loved the stay- we stayed at the super romantic John Fierke room. The house has such an amazing history at 103 years old! Thank you again!

When ever I travel I stay at a B&B if possible. I looked at several in the area before settling on the Mansion. The website doesn't do such an interesting building justice. Steve was very friendly and gracious to answer all my questions. It was clear Steve has a love of preservation and does his best to keep the B&B authentic. I was very surprised at the delicious breakfasts. I have been disappointed so often in the past. The highlight of my trip to work Chicago was staying at the Mansion.

Stayed at the Mansion while on a recent business trip. The location, tucked away in a gorgeous neighbohood is a two block walk from West Dundee's downtown. Restaurants, shopping and more are all within a very short walk. The owner was very courteous and helpful and made a fantastic breakfast in the morning. Looking forward to my next visit to the area!

Combining modern amenities with the charm of the early 1900's made for a very enjoyable stay. We will be back.

My wife and I went to the Mansion B&B for our 13th wedding anniversary. The building looks amazing. The interiors are spacious, yet cozy. Our room, which included a balcony, private whirlpool, lav and a sitting room, was great. Steve was very friendly and accommodating. Eda's breakfast was delicious (I assume it was her, although I never did see her.) I would recommend the Mansion to anyone who wants to get away for the weekend without spending a ton of money, or having to go far from Chicago.
3.4 on November 27, 2010
Steve, the host at Mansion B & B, was accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and the house quiet at the time we visited. The breakfast as outstanding. My only complaint is that check in was 4 p.m. and check-out 11 a.m. leaving us with a less than 24 hour stay. I don't usually splurge on a bed and breakfast and would have appreciated a 24-hour stay for the price we paid.

The innkeeper was very friendly and the breakfast was yum. We highly recommend this b&b to any couple!
