“Edwardian Victorian home built in 1908”
The Mandolin Inn was built in 1908 as the family home of Nicholas J. Schrup, Dubuque's leading financier. Schrup founded the American Trust and Savings Bank, served two terms as state senator and was knighted by the king of Belgium during World War I. The Inn gets its name from the unusual leaded and painted glass window on the first landing of the grand oak staircase. The window pictures Saint Cecelia, patron saint of musicians, holding a mandolin. From the glazed tile roof of the turret to the mosaic floor of the veranda, every aspect is richly detailed and beautifully crafted. Begin your day with a gourmet breakfast as sumptuous as the room in which it is served. The dining room of the Mandolin Inn is thought by many to be the most magnificent in Dubuque. An artist has painted a fantasy forest above the oak paneling. The beveled glass china cabinet stretches from floor to ceiling on one wall. The superb fireplace, detailed with Italian tiles, rests in the corner. Pampered visitors relax at day's end in the parlor or music room. In fair weather you may enjoy refreshments on the veranda.
