The Getaway That's Not Far Away! 





From the moment you walk through the door, Mont Rest transports you back to a lost era of grace and beauty. This historic Inn is Iowa's most luxurious bed and breakfast. Built in 1893, Mont Rest is nestled halfway up a 9 acre wooded bluff overlooking one of the most panoramic views of the mighty Mississippi River (two of the largest gambling boats on the Mississippi are close by). Sit in a rocker on the front porch and watch eagles catching fish from the Mississippi. We're the perfect setting for a honeymoon, anniversary, or just a weekend getaway offering a luxurious alternative to a nearby Galena bed and breakfast. We offer twelve luxurious guest rooms with private baths, many with fireplaces and Jacuzzis.

Breakfast is provided every morning at 9 am.  Full family-style breakfast provided on Friday through Sunday.  For the option of our breakfast on a weekday, please ask in advance so our chefs can prepare accordingly.

All of our luxury rooms feature working fireplaces (seasonal), Jacuzzi whirlpool bathtubs, cable TV, VCR/DVD, heated towel bars, guest robes, hair dryers, and handmade chocolates. Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages are available in our main floor kitchen, and we offer such services as in-room therapeutic massage. Our concierge service includes reserving tee times at the Bellevue Golf Club, arranging canoe trips on the Maquoketa River, making dinner reservations for area restaurants, getting tickets to local sporting and theater events in the surrounding area, and other information on tourist related activities. Mont Rest is close to several large floating gambling facilities and ski resorts.

We look forward to seeing you.
