A Very lovely Victorian Home in a beautiful neighborhood of historic homes. The owner Bill made us feel very welcome in his charming home. He left a great binder full of details for our visit. Listed us a walking tour with great directions. My husband and I enjoyed walking the tour and seeing the beautiful homes. And so many restaurants on the tour to pick. We had a tasty breakfast in the morning and were able to a interesting chat with Bill about the history of his home.
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.
The Bird House was a safe, comfortable place to stay while I visited a friend in town. Jeanne had my room ready for an earlier check in and showed me where the snacks and drinks were, including a nice Keurig coffee maker available all day. The living room and front patio are nice places to enjoy reading or talking with other guests. Breakfast was wonderful, everything homemade, and served with the best tomatoes ever from their garden. The house is located at the beginning of a wonderful street of shops, restaurants, with lovely Lake Minnetonka at the end. The Bluebird room was small, but clean with a private hall bath that had a big soaking tub but no shower.
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.
The LeBlanc house opened it's doors for our baby shower and provided a great environment for our low key gathering of family and friends. The food was light and excellent and there was space in the living room and dining room for our gathering of 12 people.
I stayed here one night while visiting Minneapolis for a wedding. The neighborhood surrounding the B&B felt very safe - full of small restaurants and quirky shops. The building was easy to find. The photos on this site should be updated, because it is much nicer inside than you can see in the pics; the single room I stayed in was spacious, and the entire house is very cutely Victorian, but not frou-frou or cluttered. Marsha, the innkeeper, is friendly but unobtrusive, and she gives you your own key at check-in so that you can go in and out as you please. There's a piano and snack fridge downstairs, the wifi through the house is strong, and Ferrero Rocher chocolates were left in my room as a treat. The shower pressure was great, with lots of hot water, and even the bath towels were scented faintly with lavender. Breakfast was lavish, with fresh strawberries, muesli, coffee & OJ, cinnamon buns, toasted bagels, and eggs cooked your way. I had no problem using my BedandBreakfast.com gift card here, and would return again if in the area.
I stayed 5 nights while attending a Conference in down Minneapolis. Each morning Marsha made a delicious and different breakfast, all were delicious. She is a culinary quality talented cook. The Inn has beautiful Victorian Antiques--my favorites were the pump organ in main parlor and the various Eastlake dressers and tables. I stayed in Zoti room with private bath, which has sweeping corner views and lots of light. I walked to the bus stop daily and had little to none surface transportation costs. The nearby restaurant area has a good variety of venues. I walked all around at night alone and found it a very safe and friendly community. I enjoyed my stay very much!
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.
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.
My husband and I went to this b&b had a nice time but I guess did not meet my standards for a b&b. Was decorated a little outdated. Stayed at better ones. Would recommend at maybe a different time or for an older couple.
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.
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.
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!
We were travelling with three children (including twin babies) who don't sleep well in the same room. Cathedral Hill B&B made traveling with children a pleasure! The rooms were comfortable and convenient to each other. Katy and Bill made us supper one night so we wouldn't have to haul the kids around. The food, both supper and breakfast, was spectacular. Katy and Bill are both friendly and comfortable to be around. They are very accepting of children and even washed trays and sippy cups for us. The B&B was convenient to main thoroughfares and was easy to find. We hope they will have availability the next time we are in the twin cities!
We had the pleasure of staying with Katy and Bill for one night again this January, and only wish we'd had reason to stay longer. This grand old home is warm and inviting, and Katy and Bill are most gracious hosts. They went out of their way to accommodate our late arrival (but insisted they didn't); the breakfast was delicious and satisfying, the coffee great. The rooms are lovely and comfortable with nice little touches. What is clear is that Katy and Bill do really want to delight their guests, in a graceful and understated way. Their home is situated in a beautiful neighborhood of lovely grand old homes, a couple blocks off of Summit Avenue. I highly recommend this B&B. Thank you, Katy and Bill!
We stayed here for my husband's 50th birthday as a surprise to him. Katy and Bill helped make it perfect by cooking a special dinner just for us which meant we could really settle in and relax. The food for dinner and breakfast was awesome. We definitely want to return. It felt like our personal home with chefs! And if you love woodwork and detail, this is the B&B for you...as a carpenter, my husband just loved the atmosphere and workmanship. It is clear the house has been lovingly designed and cared for. A very enjoyable stay, we wished we had planned a second night to do our christmas cards by the fire!
I stayed at Cathedral Hill as part of a girlfriends' getaway weekend. We just loved it. We thought the owners were so friendly, and the food was delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cathedral Hill as a place to stay when you are in St. Paul.
My husband and I visited this B & B for the first time last weekend. It was so wonderful. We were able to walk to restaurants, visit downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis and relax at Cathedral Hill. Katy serves the best breakfast I've ever had in a B & B - the granola is to-die-for. I was concerned that it said parking wasn't available, but there's plenty of on-street parking. It wasn't a problem. Our weekend was wonderful!
This B&B is located in a spectacular portion of St. Paul and is a very wonderful place to stay! Bill and Katy are very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have a warm feel to them. We will surely be staying with Bill and Katy again.
This is the best (out of dozens) B&B I have encountered. I highly recommend it. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts are sumptious. The house is exquisite. The proximity to downtown St. Paul is an advantage. Try it!
