Had a great time, the xmas decorations were beautiful. Very cozy sitting in front of the fireplace catching up. Ken cooked us a lovely special request dinner. Really great atmosphere. We will be back!

What a great place to spend the weekend. The Inn was built in 1856 and used as a stagecoach stop along the Mississippi River. The property was completely renovated and finished in 2006 I believe. The Innkeeper, Ken, is a great host and does a good job explaining everything about the inn and even gives you a little history lesson...

Spent one night here while traveling along the River Trail and glad we did. We've stayed in some nice B&B's over the years and this is among the best. Ken, the Inn Keeper is a great host as is very attentive to anything needed. Makes you feel comfortable. The room we stayed in ( Buena Vista ) was comfortable and...

We spent one night here as our first B&B. It was wonderful. Ken is a great host, greeted us outside, carried a bag in, told us history of this beautiful house. The evening was great. The next morning, we had a gourmet breakfast of just what we ordered. A wonderful experience. We will definitely stay again if we are in...

160+ year old Inn with picturesque view on Mississippi River. I'm not into B&B's, but this one was different. With only 4 rooms, this amazing B&B was restored tastefully with all the old world charm and modern conveniences. In fact, this limestone structure in a town of less than 100 had better Wi-Fi than large hotels in NYC, Minneapolis or...

Having never stayed at a B&B before, I was immediately impressed when the innkeeper (Ken) came outside to greet us. He gave us a tour of the house and grounds and the history that went with it. Rooms were very clean; very comfortable king size bed and the bathroom had a modern walk in shower. Very fluffy white towels, not...

We had the Buena Vista room on the second floor, which was beautiful and large, plus had a stunning bathroom. There are 2 rooms on the second floor and 2 on the third floor. There is...

My wife and I stayed at The Black Horse for one night in June this year. We wish it could have been longer. Not only is the house beautiful and extremely comfortable but Innkeeper Ken and owner Mark are among the most welcoming hosts we have ever come across - and we have travelled very extensively in the US.
