Best B&B experience ever

5 on August 23, 2018

We have stayed at over 30 B&B's over the years and none have provided the service, warmth and wonderful experience that Richard and Alexander did for us. We couldn't recommend this B&B higher. Jerry and Nancy

This place was everything you can imagine and the 5 course breakfast was fabulous. Richard was the perfect host and the house was so fun to see every nook and cranny. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a B&B in that area. Hoping to go back again.

We had our 50th college class reunion in Winona and stayed at the Alexander Mansion. It was an absolute fantastic stay. Richard made our stay so memorable. His welcome tour, the wine tasting and the breakfast was outstanding. I recommend staying at the B and B, you will be very happy you did. Thanks Richard for making our stay so memorable. Don and Mary

WE had a marvelous time at the Alexander Mansion Bed and Breakfast! The rooms are amazing, clean, and sparkling, the building meticulously maintained and impressive. Breakfast is an affair...plan on more than an hour to savor the conversation, delicious food and coffee. Behind it all is Richard and his attentive staff, who go above and beyond to make the stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable. Best bed and Breakfast I have stayed in my many stays..
