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.

My wife and I were in for a weekend in early November to visit a college roommate and we stayed at the Vrooman Mansion. I booked the Julia Vrooman suite for our two day stay. We were not disappointed and would return. Wonderful breakfasts each morning that was very filling. They also had snacks and coffee/tea/water on the floor where... More

It's rare to find a true 5 Star establishment in a small non-tourististy area but it's there. The Vrooman Mansion is the finest B&B I have ever stayed. Consideration was given to every detail. Authenticity of the mansion remains. The owners, Pam and Dana are warm and welcoming. There is indeed pride of ownership and it reflects throughout both the... More

I don't think anyone really thinks of Bloomington, Illinois as a B&B town, but the Vrooman Mansion is an absolutely gorgeous place, in a very quiet historic neighborhood. The couple that runs it have done a lot of work to maintain and improve the property, and the old carriage house is now a separate guest cottage that can be rented... More
