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

We stayed when dropping our son off at ISU. The owner and her husband were very kind and accommodating and brought a roll away up for our son, as he could not get into the dorm. The room was very well priced, but did not have three prong outlets, therefore it was difficult to use computers even though there was... More

The breakfast was simply outstanding. The location was excellent just a short walk to the historic downtown area. On Saturday mornings in the summer on the square is a wonderful farmers market.
