Chuck and Joy Hanson invite you to stay in their charming 173-year old Mason House Inn Bed & Breakfast located in historic Bentonsport, Iowa. This antique hotel was built in 1846 by Mormon craftsmen coming from Nauvoo, Illinois, as a hotel for the steamboat travelers. It has been used as a hospital three different times, and was also a station on the Underground Railroad. Nestled on the banks of the beautiful Des Moines River, Bentonsport is one of the Villages of Van Buren County that were among Southeast Iowa’s very first settlements.
A full country breakfast is served in the 40 foot dining room at the time of your choice. Please let Joy know if you have any dietary restrictions. She will be happy to adjust the menu accordingly.
“There is a cookie jar in every bedroom.” And, as some of our taller guests will attest, comfortable beds that are of adequate 21st Century size. We feature King, Queen, and Extra-long double beds. Some rooms also include a twin bed or two for children. Room 1 features a Tempur-Pedic Allurabed mattress with ergo and massage! And all rooms have free wireless internet access, just ask us for the password. In keeping with our ‘antique’ theme, there are no TVs or radios in the bedrooms to detract from the ambiance. (There is a TV in the Caboose Cottage because that is not antique themed.) Take a tour of our rooms to help you decide.
Our Caboose Cottage is in a real 1952 railroad caboose from the Roscoe, Snyder & Pacific Railway line from Texas. It features a queen-size bed, satellite TV with DVD player, free wireless internet access, a dining area, full kitchen and private bathroom with shower. Come to the Main house dining room for breakfast with the other guests. A great, fun place to stay for train enthusiasts of all ages.
The Mason House Inn is an ideal location for retreats, seminars, reunions, honeymoons, wedding groups, church groups, Murder Mysteries, quilting retreats, book club r
