We stayed in Bishop hill for the traditional Swedish St Lucia nights. This is one of the best kept secrets in Illinois. The Gallery Inn is immaculately kept. I don't think I have ever had a cleaner room anywhere. The place is beautiful 1800s Era building. There are many quaint shops and restaurants to enjoy.

Talk about going back in time. Wow! Everything about this place is fascinating, from the monuments in the town park to the cemetery. The Gallery Inn is... More

As I planned a recent trip through central Illinois, I discovered that Bishop Hill was between our starting point and our first stop. I knew vaguely of the history of Bishop Hill, I decided to make it a part of our itinerary. I made reservations at The Gallery Inn, and my wife and I were rewarded with an exceptional experience....
