An absolutely lovely facility -- perfectly restored and wonderfully maintained. Excellent service from the moment we arrived -- greeted with fresh baked brownies. The rooms are all clean and spacious. The in-room air conditioning was adequate even for a somewhat steamy July weekend. The food was simply incredible. The finest fresh fruit each morning. Delicious coffee. Tasty quiche. All in... More

This is a beautiful home with gracious staff and very romantic rooms. There are three albums of family history that are most enlightening about the family, WW1 and food security (Mr. Vrooman was Undersecretary of Agriculture for Wilson), and highlights of Julia Vrooman's many accomplishments including breadmaking! The bed was not the most comfortable but the delicious and elegant breakfast... More

We stayed in the carriage house, with en suite bathroom, and even a shared sitting room with fireplace and a kitchen. Holiday decorations added to the charm. Wine in the sitting room in the main house surrounded by Holiday trees made for a memorable evening. The staff and owners could not be nicer.

This Memorial weekend, we celebrated my husband's birthday and my past Christmas gift in the Carriage house. The afternoon started with personal pedicures for each of us in the 1st floor living room next to the large stone fireplace. The owners were very accommodating allowing us to bring a small grill to grill dinner in the evenings out on the... More

Everything as it would have been when Vrooman family lived there. Yes some modern conveniences have been added. Breakfast in the beautiful dining area with such delicious food was great. The owners and staff were very friendly and made you feel at home. If staying in Bloomington il. Is on your agenda do not miss staying here.

We stayed here during graduation and for 1 night it was perfect. We had the Master's Chamber which was quite large and comfortable. Plush robes in the closet plus extra pilllows & iron. The building dates to 1865 so it is quite old but very much in tact. Gorgeous furnishings and well maintained. Lovely first floor common areas as well... More

We loved it here it is right out of the past and I suspect it may not be for everyone but we found it to be charming. We spent the evening drinking a bottle of wine on the veranda and I can totally recommend it. The area of Bloomington does seem to have a lot going on but still worth... More

I can not speak fondly enough of this adorable Bed & Breakfast. The building has more charm than anything else in Illinois. The staff love the house and love having others enjoy it. The were very attentive to anything I needed, including a custom breakfast since I don't eat eggs, but gave me freedom to enjoy the whole home and... More

I went to Bloomington for my daughter's cheer competition. I was wanting to do something different than a regular hotel. I am so glad I found this place. It was so relaxing and the whole mansion is beautiful. I was given a tour and information when I first got there. They made me feel at home from the beginning. My... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mansion Dec.17, 2014. It was a Christmas shopping trip, and the stay at the Mansion was our Christmas gift. What a gift it was! From the moment we entered the home, we were immersed in old-fashioned Christmas magic and welcomed with warmth and friendliness by innkeeper Lori. Beautiful Christmas trees and decorations were...

What a sweet and thoughtful review! Thank you so much for staying with us! It was such a pleasure getting to know you! One of the greatest things about working at the Mansion is meeting new people and welcoming back the ones who return.
