Husband and I went here for an Anni getaway. It was the best time for the money we've ever had. The food was great, and the mystery evening was so much fun. Never expected my husband to get into such stuff but he was the one who figured out "who done it" We're going to get a nights stay for our daughter as part of her christmas gift next year.

My husband and I went to the Mont Rest Inn Bed and Breakfast because we wanted to enjoy the fall foliage. It was breathtaking!! The Inn was beautifully decorated with antiques. The kitchen was kept fully stocked with sodas and other beverages (which must be purchased via the honor system) and a vast assortment of complimentary freshly baked cookies.
Despite the number of rooms at this Inn (there are 12 huge rooms, all of which were booked while we were there), the Inn never felt crowded.
It was, shall we say....cozy.

We first stayed in Ginny's Woodland Room. It had a gas fireplace, cozy whirlpool for two, double shower heads and a comfy-cozy queensized bed with lush pillows and covers. The room was dotted with antiques, including an antique radio which sat on the fireplace mantle. It was truly lovely.

The second night, we had to be moved to the first floor to the Hideaway Room as our first room had been booked by someone else. We were somewhat disappointed in this room. It lacked the fireplace, and the first floor is more noisy and lacks privacy, especially since this room is directly outside the dining room. Also, we had trouble getting hot water. But it was still a nicely decorated room.

The murder/mystery dinner is amazing!!! The costumes and the plot are fun, and everyone (no matter how mature or boring you are) gets in on it. The food is outstanding. You get everything from hors douerves to dessert (and of course a lavish entree in between). This part of the trip was highly recommended, and although the package is a bit pricey, the meal ALONE is worth it...try the stuffed pork chops!!!! YUUUUUM!

The only thing we were disappointed in, aside from the Hideaway Room's location on the first floor, was the breakfast buffet which was reminiscent of college dorm food. Need I say more...? But everything else makes up for that little flaw. And the dinners at night are a different story, they are wonderful.

Also, there is a casino not far away, about 20 miles. It's fun to go there and play the slots late at night and of course, Galena is just around the corner with its cute and kitschy shops and cafes.
