this property was so pleasant, it felt like home right away. The owners were super friendly, property was clean, decorated, and had some very nice amenities - such as fresh fruit, chocolates, cold waters, soda. The bed was comfortable, and I love the walk in shower. Breakfast the next day was very generous, and delish. We enjoyed our nightly walk... More

Stayed here during a return for a class reunion. You get much more than a room. It's like a small house attached to the main house. It was just like sitting at home. Very comfortable. There is a small living room, complete kitchen, bath and bedroom. It's completely private, quiet. Breakfast was brought in from the house at the designated... More

My husband and I traveled to DeKalb to photograph a wedding at the beautiful Ellwood House Museum. We found Parkside Bed & Breakfast online and I am so very grateful that we did!

We spent 10 days at the Parkside B&B and my daughter and I took advantage of all it had to offer. My daughter was doing a research project and I was visiting with people most of whom I had not seen for 30 years when we both lived in DeKalb. There was a comfortable living room area where we were... More

My wife and I stayed for 1 night. Pity it could not have been longer. The B&B offers a self contained unit, separate to the main house. Very clean, spacious . There is everything you need: queen size bed, kitchenette, living and dining area, Wifi, writing desk, DVDs, books, magazines, complimentary multi-course breakfast, complimentary water, soda and snacks.

We decided to stay in DeKalb two days to celebrate our anniversary and to attend a concert.

Parent weekend at NIU - Hotels booked - Where will we stay? Found this B&B through a friend..Great location, close to NIU..and costs less than staying at the Hampton....I'll never stay in a hotel in Dekalb again! The Snows were gracious and accommodating hosts.....and the food....WOW! Unbelievable ! We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Thanks again !!!!
