Alexander Mansion is a hotel alternative with unique amenities that many hotels in Winona MN are not able to offer. We proudly feature Winona’s own J. R. Watkins Natural Apothecary lotions, body wash and lavender bath salts for our guests’ use. When you book us for your Winona MN lodging needs, you’ll also find fluffy thick towels, fine bed linens, luxury robes, extra blankets and pillows, an alarm clock, a hair dryer, a radio, free Wi-Fi, a private bathroom, client-controlled air conditioning, and comfortable seating in each of the rooms. Unlike Winona, MN hotels, our suites are grand-sized rooms, providing the addition of a fireplace, CD player, and iron with ironing board. Flat screen television available for all rooms. You are invited to complimentary coffee, teas, hot chocolate, bottled spring water, soda pop and any candy and nuts you find in pretty dishes throughout the inn. Air pots of fresh coffee and hot water are set out each morning on the main floor in the sunny breakfast room/gift shop. There you will also find a small refrigerator filled with complimentary cold beverages. Those really wonderful mugs that are keeping your coffee so nice and hot, are hand thrown right here in Minnesota, at Deneen Pottery – and are available for purchase. With our logo on them, they make a great souvenir to remind you of your stay at the best bed and breakfast in Minnesota!
A bountiful gourmet breakfast is served daily in the elegant dining room at 9:00am. There is also private seating for two available in the east parlor. Fresh coffee and hot water with teas can be found in the Tea room for the early risers. Breakfast at the Alexander Mansion is intended to spoil you while you are our guest. We use fresh ingredients, mostly organic and from the local farmer’s market in season. Several courses are served where we showcase the use of Watkins spices and extracts. Breakfast begins with fruit juice and beverage of choice. The next courses include a fruit dish followed by sweet bread, scones, or muffins, then by a savory egg dish like fresh vegetable frittata or quiche. Breakfast concludes on a sweet note with a dessert dish of creamy vanilla ice cream sundaes, sprinkled with delicious Watkins cinnamon.
We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs, so please do not hesitate to mention them to us!
