Mont Rest is a unique and wonderful place to stay. The décor is antique in both the main space and in the rooms. The rooms are all good size and very clean. My husband and I went when the had a murder mystery and had so much fun. The staff are all professional and friendly and our food was amazing! The town of Bellevue is a small river town on the Mississippi and has a nice feel. I plan on going back again for another getaway with my husband!

The Angelic Tower Room gives a SPECTACULAR view of the Mississippi River. You are in your own private love nest overlooking this historic mansion. Friends recommended it and we agree that it is worth the visit.

Room Tip: You can believe their website descriptions of all the rooms and special packages for murder mystery...

On Friday, May 30th, my wife and I and another couple participated in Mont Rest's "The Great Gatsby Soriee". The ladies were dressed approppietly as "flappers" and our tuxes added a just the right period touch. We had professional pictures taken throughout the evening and they were all emailed to us for future memories of a perfectly elegant. evening. We were served a ten course gourmet dinner pared with three different wine selections. All of this took place in a wonderful Victorian mansion built in 1893 and situated on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. It was a very memorable evening we won't soon forget. Actually, this was our second visit to Mont Rest. Last year we participated in one of their costumed "murder mystery" dinners and it too was loads of fun. Our thanks to Chris, Namoi and Samantha and the rest of the staff for their cooking skills and impeccable service. Ed and Regina S.

Room Tip: There are twelve unique Victorian bedrooms, some with Jacuzzis. We've stayed in a room facing t...

My husband and have traveled from WI to stay at this B&B twice now. Both times we went for the Mystery dinner. We had so much fun roll playing with the other guests. I was even the murderer one time. The staff is so friendly and they have the best breakfast ever. The view of the Mississippi is wonderful and the little town has some wonderful shops. The rooms are really nice with everything you may need. Definitely plan to go back!

My husband and I went for a couple's getaway. The food here was amazing and creative. The staff were very fun and energetic. The little town was cozy and interesting to walk around. The rooms were very beautiful and comfortable. The views of the water and driving around was great. i would highly recommend this to a couple wanting to get away for a quiet weekend.

I have stayed at the Mont Rest Inn for Murder Mystery and Evening in Paris parties. We were dressed in fabulous costumes, ate fabulous food and were treated like family. We have enjoyed the Mont Rest 2 times and have brought friends with the second time. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Stay in the main building

My wife and I were trying to find something different to do for a romantic weekend and what we found was the Mont Rest. We travel to destinations around the world at least once a year and our experience at the Mont Rest ranked right up there with any of our international destinations. The property was clean, well maintained, and absolutley beautiful. The guest service made every guest feel like VIP. The murder mystery was an absolute blast. Laughed so hard we had tears rolling! Can't wait to get back for another great weekend!
