Country charm along the historic Mississippi River.

Jackson House

This Victorian-style B&B invites guests to stop and sit a spell on the wraparound porch overlooking a river bend in historic Alton. Mature trees hide the home from the intrusion of the 21st century, while the three innkeepers maintain a kind of hospitality associated with years gone by. Spacious rooms in the main house are decorated in traditional Victorian style. But what sets this property apart are its guest houses, appropriately named The Barn and The Cave. The former has a whirlpool tub, loft bedroom, enclosed porch and open deck. The latter is a modern earthen home with a two-person whirlpool tub and fireplace. This is a rare bed-and-breakfast in that it accepts both pets and older children. Families feel right at home here. Whether your interests are in visiting local attractions or simply bird-watching and breathing in fresh country air, it's perfect for a weekend escape from the city. When eating the bountiful breakfast each morning, remember to save room for the dessert that follows.
