I've gone back and forth about how to rate the Mont Rest. There were aspects that deserved a 4, and aspects that deserved a 5. Taking into consideration its reputation and that it is very expensive, I believe it should be held to a higher standard. First I'll talk about the inn itself. It is beautiful, and I enjoyed exploring...

We went to Mont Rest with family and friends and had ta ball! We stayed in the three rooms unattached to the main house and it was the perfect set up for us. The room was a bit small but charming and had a fireplace and jaccuzi. The Great Gatsby themed dinner was a hoot. The 10 course dinner was...

Positives: The staff was very enthusiastic and seemed to enjoy playing different roles, the food was tasty (not gourmet) and the portions were adequate, the room was comfortable and in general the entire place was welcoming. Negatives: The dinner dishes were chipped and cracked, the balcony that was to look onto a "wooded area" had a view of an embankment...

Booked the Mont Rest Inn and Murder Mystery for a Summer family get together in June 2014. First item to note- the parking lot needs to be repaired. Second there were a lot of folks that attended that evenings Murder Mystery and it seemed as they were very understaffed for such a large group and made the Murder Mystery hard...

We needed a short break from the home chaos, and had a four day weekend available to us. We chose the Mont Rest for the murder mystery dinner. We arrived a few minutes before the 3:30 p.m. check in time, but that was not an issue to them at all. We were shown around by Ralph, the owner's husband, and...

We stopped at Mont Rest on the way to my parents 50th Anniversary gathering in Galena, Illinois. We loved this inn and Chris made us feel right at home from the start. We were treated to fresh baked cookies and homemade chocolates. The rooms were great and filled with beautiful antique pieces and collections. Chris is an excellent cook and...
