Autumn at the Blue Belle Inn B&B and Tea House

Welcome to a stunning Iowa example of Victorian Elegance! It’s been over 23 years since I first fell in love with the wonderful (previously dilapidated) Victorian house that is now the Blue Belle Inn B&B and Tea House in Saint Ansgar. Although I do my best to keep up with the times, I think part of the Blue Belle Inn’s charm is that it has remained a restorative oasis where guests can relax and enjoy good, old-fashioned food, fun and hospitality.

No matter what the season, there are all kinds of reasons to visit the Blue Belle Inn! Here are a few things I love about my B&B and Tea House in the fall:

  • Maple trees in red and orange
  • Seasoned pork and Parmesan stuffed pumpkins
  • Bumbleberry pie with apples
  • Blueberries and raspberries
  • Our front porch swing
  • Hunter Schnitzel on homemade Spaetzle Noodles for Oktoberfest
  • Walls of ivy and grapevines
  • Potato cheese soup
  • Honeycrisp apples murder mystery dinners, warm days and cool nights
  • Fresh herbs, tomatoes and raspberries from our garden and the flurry of harvest all around.

Speaking of some of my favorite things - our Murder Mystery Dinners definitely top the list. Here are the upcoming events we are hosting: 

  • The Hills Are Alive - Um, Make That Dead - With the Sound of Silence. A murder mystery spoof of "The Sound of Music" and "Sister Act." - October 24 & 25
  • Mama Mia That's a Smelly Cat. Featuring Mama and Eunice from the Carol Burnett Show and Monica and Phoebe from Friends when they appear on the show, Wife Swap. - November 14 & 15
