An escape to the Beall Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn in historic Alton will result in sweet chocolate dreams. Every stay at the Southern-style inn includes a complimentary 24-hour all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet. Yes, that’s right, an endless buffet of succulent chocolate available to you whenever you’re craving something sweet. The smorgasbord features more than 21 different types of chocolate treats, such as dark chocolate peppermint patties, milk chocolate peanut butter cup minis and chocolate covered toffee crunch kisses.
If never-ending chocolate doesn’t entice you enough, the Beall Mansion is located just steps away from Alton’s rich cultural scene, lively entertainment, wineries and breathtaking scenery. Take a walk near the river to capture images of the famous Clark Bridge, experience a wine tasting at one of Alton’s seven wineries, bike next to gorgeous bluffs on the Great River Road or take in a show at a local theatre. With so much variety, Alton is great for a weekend getaway with friends or romantic retreat with someone special.
The charming town is also known for its expanding culinary scene. If you want to indulge in something savory before your chocolate feast, wine and dine at Tony’s Restaurant. If rich homemade dishes are what you crave, try Castelli’s Restaurant at 255.
At the end of your Alton adventure, retreat to the Beall Mansion and don’t forget to stop by the chocolate buffet for a sweet night cap!
