The room was lovely. The gift basket with snacks and wine was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. But.... We had to call the maintenance man because there was not adequate hot water to fill the jacuzzi tub. He came and "fixed" it but we had to wait at least an hour for the water to... More

For $145 dollars if you are going to have this really nice bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub then you should be able to fill it with AT LEAST WARM water. But instead they spent the time to type up this long note and frame it and put it in each suite about how they were so sorry but they are... More

We stayed in the Red Port and White Port rooms, and also were able to access the common area between the rooms. The accommodations are nice, beds were comfortable, plenty of towels were provided and the jacuzzis were a great bonus. The utensils in the kitchen were random and mismatched. The coffee in the room is horrible. There is no... More

We went with a Group of friends, and stayed at the Von Jakob Vineyard Bed and Breakfast. This B&B was excellent. Upon check-in we received a little welcome basket that included cheese, fruit, crackers and a bottle of wine. Our room was very large it had a king size bed, two chairs to sit in, its own balcony, and a... More

We were touring the Illinois Wine country and this was one of our stops. Made a reservation here as there are not many hotels in this area of Illinois. Arrived late in the afternoon and had noticed that thee are not many places to eat in the area. They were still serving lunch so we opted for that. I think... More

We rented out every room at this bed and breakfast for my 40th birthday. I must say every room was nice and very well decorated. We had a blast at the wineries and then retreated to the farm house to hang out before calling it a night. Breakfast the next morning was good. We were glad it did not start... More

We booked a room a month in advance and our favorite room in The Wine House was already booked. We chose the White Port Suite at the Port House. Upon arriving to the house, we were told there had been a mix up with rooms and were given the Red Port Suite. Although the room was charming and the bed... More

My wife and I stayed here four nights for our honeymoon in July and it was fantastic! We stayed in the White Oak Port Room and couldn't have been happier. The king bed was so comfortable and the sofa in the room was very relaxing. Our room had a two person soaker tub with dual showers for extra relaxation. Everyone... More
