Bounded By Water B&B
Ranked #2 of 2 Sabula B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Bounded By Water is no longer open,the owner sold out and left town.There is a very nice B and B in Sabula that is worth visiting..The Castle bed and Breakfast on River St is a great place to sit and watch the boats go by..on the river bank

Stayed: September 2012

This B&B left a lot to be desired. First off, the inn keeper was surley. Our first impression of him was us knocking on the door well after stated check in time, and him coming to the door complaining that we were early. The entire time we were there, all he did was complain about other guests, how messy they were, how they wanted breakfast early in the morning (8am isn't too early for a breakfast request!). He was constantly reminding us to check our shoes for rocks, so we didn't scratch the floor. I felt oddly like my father was our innkeeper.

The house has potential, but it is sparsely furnished. It has been poorly remodeled, and many details remain unfinished. The place is also cold! I was freezing both nights, and when I complained, he made fun of me. Our room was a mismatch of furniture, again it reminded me of staying in a realitives spare room.

While Sabula is neat, and it is cool to say you slept on an island in the Mississippi, there are a multitude of B&Bs in this area, don't waste your time on this one!
