We wanted a place near downtown so that we could enjoy dinner and the Pokey Lafarge show at the Castle theater. The Burr House was perfect! It is on a quiet street just a few blocks from downtown in a beautiful neighborhood facing a park. The house has been updated to modern standards, yet it maintains homey (rather than formal)...

The Burr House Bed & Breakfast is a delightful place. The home itself is charming and has exquisite features including original woodworking, marble fireplaces and more. The rooms are wonderful and the beds comfortable. Sitting at the dining room in the morning and watching birds out the window, enjoying a well lit sitting room off of our room and the... More

A nice location for a weekend in Bloomington. Right by Franklin Park and a short walk to downtown. The lady of the house is rather charming -- not the most outgoing personality, but knowledgable about the area. Her husband is in the entirely wrong business -- describing him as a curmedgeon is being polite. The place does have the look... More

Two-night stay in early April. Great location on Franklin Park. Queen Anne's suite cannot be beat. The other interesting guests and the affable host, Maryann, made this a delightful stay. Little street traffic and a second fool view of the park.

If you are going to spend a night or more in Bloomington/Normal Illinois, and you want to try something other than a chain hotel/motel, I recommend that you try The Burr House Bed & Breakfast. It is in a quiet neighborhood near Illinois Wesleyan University (two blocks away). The accomodations are fine, as long as you don't want a big... More

My daughter and I stayed one night. Maryann, the host, was extremely helpful at every turn. Affordable, quiet, excellent food. House in need of some upkeep (non-functiong lamp in my room - but there were 3 others that worked) Highly recommended

My husband and I stayed at the Burr House while visiting friends for a quick weekend in Bloomington. The neighborhood is very quaint and the outside of the home is beautiful. The innkeeper is very sweet. The location is convenient. My only problems include: -dingy looking sheets -flat,limp pillows -dust everywhere and the place could use a deep cleaning, I... More

I spent three nights at this historic B&B in Bloomington. The hostess, Mary Ann, was very helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious, and what was best was that she is willing to serve breakfast from 6:30 am! That's unusual for the B & B's I've stayed in. The rooms are large and very comfortable. It's location, near the college... More
