Stayed for two nights in early January 2014. Host and hostess made us feel very welcome and room was pleasant. Great situation as able to walk into town and plenty of good food places. Pan to go again.

This is a solid choice for a quiet and comfortable place to stay. The Stone House has great views and tons of warm character. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast was simply delicious. Sandra, the owner, must have read our minds when we woke for breakfast each day. She had a large stack of Amish oatmeal pancakes, fresh fruit,... More

We went to The Stone House for our anniversary in January. The history of the house was amazing, as was the conversation over breakfast with Sandra. The room view was gorgeous. I loved waking up to the view. We will be going back again!

We had a chance to slip out of the St. Louis metro area and we didn't have to go far to find the perfect hideaway! The Stone House in Chester, Illinois was just the ticket for a little out of town rest and relaxation. We were right at home from the moment we arrived at the old Presbyterian church converted...

We loved the Stone House--its location overlooking the river, its decor, its lovely innkeeper and tasty breakfast. It's everything one could want for a relaxing stay. I wish I lived there. And thank you, Sandra, for arranging a tour of Kaskaskia Island. I would not have thought to ask. I hope we can come back again.

What a delightful, peaceful, relaxing place! Our room was lovely (upstairs, with a great view of the Mississippi River), clean, and quite comfortable. Sandra, the on-site owner, suggested restaurants for dinner and helped us with directions. The next morning, we enjoyed coffee and conversation with Sandra and her "grand dog," Joey (he was visiting for a few days) on the... More

We stayed in the Bedouin room for one night. Chester is a sleepy town, and we found The Stone House to be a great place to spend a quiet evening away from the big city. In fact, I'd say The Stone House may be the star of Chester. Sitting on the covered front porch in the evening, watching the sun... More

we enjoyed our afternoon relaxing on the porch, amid the beautiful gardens and loved getting up to a delicious breakfast prepared by Sandra who was very gracious and helpful, and more time to relax in such a great home and property.

My wife and I went to the Stone House and had the greatest time. Sandra, the innkeeper, was a so sweet and helped us plan our days. The breakfast were awesome, fresh and gourmet. The bed was so comfortable that we slept like it was our bed from home. Everything about this place was fun, exciting and comfortable. I highly... More

Finding a B&B that calls us back is rare, and the Stone House beckons from a hilltop on the mighty Mississippi River. My husband and dear friends treated me to a two-day birthday stay at Stone House, and what a peaceful, relaxing, and pleasurable escape it was! The food was out of this world, and the first morning we enjoyed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally the First Presbyterian Church built in 1846, The Stone House sits on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The church was converted into a private residence after lightning struck and destroyed the bell tower in the early 1920's. The house has magnificent exposed hand-hewn ceiling beams, deep window seats and is beautifully furnished with accents of interesting decor collected from extensive travel in foreign lands. The scenic view in a quiet and quaint setting is a sure method of relaxation. ... more   less
