We had an ideal B&B experience at The Avenue. Without being obtrusive, Paul and Catherine were fantastic hosts who provided all the creature comforts we could've asked for and more. Each breakfast was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared and delicious. And plentiful! With thoughtful surprise treats offered throughout our visit, too. The inclusion of local foods, much of it organic, is... More

We had stayed at The Avenue periodically while our son was a student and felt this was better than any hotel. For graduation weekend, Paul and Catherine (our hosts) made the weekend very special for us. For that weekend, the entire B&B is reserved by one family, so everything could be setup just for us. The weekend included a dinner... More

This was our second time at The Avenue. Paul was away but Catherine was a fabulous hostess. Based on our previous stay we knew the breakfast would be terrific and Catherine met or exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Queen Suite and our daughter and son-in-law stayed in the Maid's Suite. Both were super comfortable and we all slept... More

We stayed at The Avenue for graduation weekend at the university, and though we are proud of our new alum, the highlight of the weekend was our experience with Paul and Catherine. They made a special weekend worry-free, providing scrumptious breakfasts, everything necessary for our impromptu champagne and cheese hour, directions to locales, etc. The topper was the amazing barbecue...

It was quite by accident that we stayed at The Avenue for U of I Dad's Weekend Nov. 12-14, 2010. After not finding availability in any of the hotels, I looked at B & B's as an alternative. The Avenue's website was very enticing and they just happened to have the perfect accommodations for my husband and I and our... More

I have stayed at The Avenue twice, most recently for a Christnmas shopping weekend/short getaway with my husband. The Avenue Is an excellent place to stay. Paul and Catherine have every detail of your stay covered. From the absolutely wonderful breakfast to the snack left for us in the evening to the wonderful room and atmosphere. Their home is beautiful... More

I recently planned a romantic weekend in Champaign to propose to my girlfriend. Everything went flawless. The Avenue was the icing on the cake! Paul and Catherine are phenominal hosts and have a cozy, beautiful home. Breakfast was outstanding and included local produce with farm fresh eggs and meats. Catherine makes the best quiche I've ever tasted. The Brewers have... More

The Avenue B & B is perfect because it's: (1) Located in a beautiful residential neighborhood but not far from downtown (2) The rooms are beautifully decorated with antiques but not so fancy that you're afraid to touch anything. 3 suites on the 2nd floor, 1 on the 3rd. The rooms are large and since the house is so well... More

This B&B is definitely the only place to stay in Champaign, IL. The hosts, Paul and Catherine, are lovely, generous people who obviously enjoy their work. I asked for a low carb menu and an early breakfast (my meeting started at 8 a.m.) and they accomodated me in style. The crustless quiche was wonderful, and accompanied by the best fruit... More

We have discovered paradise in Urbana-Champaign... I was ready to give up on B&Bs from my last experience in Virginia, but decided to give it one more try. My wife booked The Avenue so we could enjoy her alma mater's homecoming (U of I, Urbana-Champagne) and have a nice weekend away. It exceeded all expectations!! Catherine and Paul have done... More
