We are relatively new to the B&B experience, so we were delighted to visit this stately, yet welcoming home! The extensive bookcases and gorgeous stained glass windows were impressive, but the extra small touches made it feel like home: snacks and sodas, fluffy robes, lovely linens. We enjoyed the tour and history that we were given of the home, but... More

As our family gathered with relatives and friends to celebrate the life of our mother, a former Hudson and Bloomington-Normal resident, we were looking for a facility that could help us host 40 guests for a warm and intimate gathering following Mother's interment service. The innkeeper, Kate, provided all of the help necessary to plan our event from out of... More

We celebrated our anniversary with an overnight getaway to the Vrooman Mansion in Bloomington, IL. We love old houses and this one has some wonderful features. In addition to the expected stained glass windows and ornate woodwork, there are surprises such as the English lift. We were fortunate to receive an extended tour along with an interesting history of this... More

I was surprised that it was in the middle of a residential area - one where you would see no travelers around. The exterior looks just like it could be a part of the neighborhood - but the inside is magical. There is a lot of history that surrounds this house... you feel like you're back in the 19th century... More

My husband, son and I stayed at the Vrooman Mansion while visiting nearby colleges. This is a beautiful, gracious property that oozes charm and hospitality. When we arrived, Brian greeted us at the door, to the sounds of classical music from the player grand piano in the background. It is just wonderful and special walking into this grand B &... More

We spent our 50th wedding anniversary at the Vrooman Mansion February 1st. We were the only ones there - but it was wonderful. Very clean, very comfortable and quite accommodating. The innkeeper was very special and a great hostess. Every room has a special story and entices one to enter "back in time". The night was wonderful with a great,... More

We stayed at Vrooman Mansion last weekend for the 2nd time. The innkeeper and staff treated us like royalty. The quality of the room, including the linens and towels, was top notch.

My wife & I and another couple from St. Louis stayed overnight @ Vroomand Mansion in late October during a visit to Bloomington for a hockey game. The location is secluded, yet has easy access to all Bloomington-Normal sites. The property is historic and beautiful, with the history lesson a must-do on check-in for a full appreciation of the mansion.... More

We gave our daughter and son in law a weekend at the Vrooman Mansion for their anniversary. They had to cancel their original anniversary weekend because their 4 month old son was airlifted to a hospital that weekend. Fortunately he is improving. They loved the two room suite and comfortable open floor. They forgot clothes there, and the owner was... More
