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 stayed at the Von Jakob Vineyard Bed and Breakfast and it was very nice. The room we stayed in was very well appointed, had a Jacuzzi tub, a great little welcome basket that included cheese, fruit, crackers and a bottle of wine. Wine tasting was also included in the price of the room as was a wonderful gourmet breakfast... 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

Rooms are nicely decorated. Enjoyed being outside in the hot tub looking at the green view. The bathroom is so luxurious with the marble and big whirlpool with dual shower heads. Very romantic. We got to choose a free bottle of wine and that came with snacks; add the free breakfast, and that's worth about half the price of the... More

This was the 3rd stop of a wine tasting tour and we enjoyed ourself at all the places. This was just as nice as the others and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of stoping by. We went with a group of 10 and were all able to be together and drink lots of good adult beverages!
