My wife and I were touring the Great River Road, and found ourselves in Bellevue for the evening. The reviews for Mont Rest were great, and we were not disappointed. The place was beautiful! However, as I am a bit of a klutz, there are too many antiques and stuff on the walls and railings. The evening was relaxing, chatted...

My husband and I wanted a weekend away and wanted to revisit the Galena area. We came across Mont Rest when I googled "hotels and jacuzzis". We both were intrigued by the murder mystery having done one in England before and thought we would give this place a try plus the bed and breakfast looked gorgeous and reminded us of...

I gave my boyfriend a night at the Mont Rest Inn with the Murder Mystery package for Christmas. We finally took the trip at the end of February, and my (usually quite high) expectations were exceeded. The inn is beautifully decorated, and the owner, Christine, can fascinate you for hours talking about its history, and the history of virtually every...

We have stayed several times and we will return! Our best experiences have been with the Murder Mystery Dinner. From small group to large group, it has always been a fun experience.

When my husband and I pulled into this beautiful mansion we weren't sure what to expect. We definitely weren't expecting to be greeted by a lovely charming individual (thank you Naomi).

My brother and his girlfriend gave our family this little getaway for a Family Christmas present. What a wonderful surprise. The place is magnificent!

Our host Naomi was entusiastic and made the whoel evening...

“There are no bad rooms, but I think the rooms in the carriage house are a little bigger (which you obviously pay more for).”
