Guest Review from Burlington, Iowa

February 13, 2021

This was our 3rd stay at this wonderful house!

Our son gave us a gift certificate for a one-night stay for Christmas. We decided Valentine Weekend would be a great time to use it.

A wonderful stay!! Loved the chocolates and pretty red rose in our room (very nice touch)! Also, we had wonderful live piano music, what a treat. Breakfast was so good! Chocolate crepes with cream cheese filling and strawberries were amazing. Staff was delightful!

Thank you, Pam, for making our reservations at Rob Dob’s. Excellent dining and it was so nice to just have everything all set up for us. Even though it was -6 degrees outside, it was a warm and perfectly romantic weekend.

Thank-you, Dave & Nancy, Burlington, Iowa

Letitia’s 2 Room Suite

On the second floor of Vrooman Mansion, down the hallway is the two-room Letitia’s Suite. With a queen-sized bed, a gorgeous antique dresser and luxurious purple accents, this may quickly become your favorite room. 

The adjacent sitting room is for Letitia’s Suite guests only with a queen-size pull-out couch and a television inside the armoire. This is the perfect suite for those with an additional guest or for those who just want a little more space to themselves.

Plus, each suite in the mansion has its own private bath, however Letitia’s Suite has one of the most luxurious walk-in showers with tile and multiple shower heads. Every suite has a different and unique bathroom set up. Some have walk-in showers, others have antique tubs, and some have tub & shower combinations.

Be sure to look at the details online before you book so you can find the setup that best suits your personal tastes and preferences while traveling.
