Wonderful beautiful place!

5 on July 28, 2017

Took my Mother here for a few days to relax and sightsee. The home and grounds are beautiful and full of history. We loved our room, which was kept immaculate by the owner. Breakfast every day was delicious and delightful - Brian cooked and served it himself. He was a wealth of information about the area and was just great. We hope to go back soon!


Interesting and elegant

The house was beautiful and host Brian's stories kept us at the table well after breakfast. Meals were good and we enjoyed "meeting" his horses. I give White Cliff my hardy recommendajtion. Frank Webb


A Great Get Away

What a treat. The accommodations were well beyond what was expected and as stated by others, Brian is an extraordinary host who reaches out to incorporate the regional history, foods and drinks into his establishment. Not being a B&B person I was hesitant when my wife made the arrangements however this was beyond my expectation and I do plan to return soon to the peaceful and relaxed environment of this wonderful establishment.


Love Love this bed and breakfast and would recommend to everyone. Brian was a great host and the rooms are awesome, plan to go back.

White Cliff Manor was a GREAT place to visit... The home was very beautiful with a lot of history which Brian explained to us...The bedrooms were very nice and the whole decor of the place was very elegant..The breakfasts that wetre prepared were great... The home made hot carmel-nut rolls served to us were the BEST......Its worth the money!!


anniversary getaway

5 on June 20, 2012

My husband & I had our 1st visit to a B & B, it was absolutely beautiful, the scenery and peace & quiet was perfect. Brian was very kind and made us feel like family.


Best Anniversary Ever

5 on May 13, 2012

This home was amazing and what made it even better was the owner, Brian. He treated us as if we were family not strangers. He told us the history of the home and it felt like we were back in the 1800's. Brian isn't just running a business, he opened his home to us. This beautiful peaceful home. It was like entering into another Era of our history only with modern updates. There are bathrooms in each bedroom, central airconditioning and the BEST breakfast ever. Sitting on the front porch at night listening to the birds was so peaceful. The church bells in the distance in the morning just made it even better. There are no words to really describe this home, you just have to see it yourself. You will never go to another B&B again because nothing will compare to this one.

A Mothers day that we will never forget

5 on May 09, 2012

I took my mom to White Cliff for Mothers day this year and I have never been so impressed by anything as I was with this B&B! A BIG thanks to Brian for making our weekend a very special memory that I will always cherish with my mom. We are planning on making this a yearly tradition!


Best B&B

5 on April 20, 2012

Love this place! It was immaculantly taken care of with wonderful high quality furnishings (not the typical B&B grandma floral prints and doilies) and craftsmanship, landscaping and general care of the place. The owner is extremely nice, accomodating and makes the best breakfast. Did this for our 10 year anniversary. It was wonderful! Thank you!


White Cliff definitely a 5-Star experience

5 on October 18, 2011

My wife and I recently decided to take a Fall "see-the-colors" trip and incorporate a bed and breakfast stay as part of the experience. Our choice of White Cliff Manor Bed and Breakfast & Gardens was nothing short of 5-Star. It was truly outstanding. Innkeeper Brian Helms is a detail-oriented person and it shows in his painstaking restoration of the 19th century Louis Schaaf historic home and the level of service that he and his staff provide to guests. A very relaxing touch for guests is coffee served each morning at 7:30. Weather permitting, you can sit on the deck at the rear of the house and enjoy the early morning, while chatting with other guests. And precisely at 8:30 (9 a.m. on weekends) the breakfast bell rings, then you move into the dining room for an exquisite meal like you would find at the finest hotels and restaurants. This is a tribute to Brian's 30-plus years in the hospitality business. Everything is fresh, bought at local markets, and complimented with fresh fruit, according to what is in season. After breakfast, the host shares his extensive knowledge of the area as well as the Schaaf family, which he has researched extensively. The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, each bearing the name of a Schaaf family member and reflecting some aspect of their personalities. Views from the upstairs balcony and the downstairs front porch are spectacular, as they overlook bluffs on the Mississippi River and neighboring farmlands. The grounds are meticulously maintained and dotted with numerous colorful flowers. Overall, this was a marvelous experience and it vastly exceeded our expectations. We anticipate a return visit next "leaf season."
