My wife and I stayed at the Parkside B & B over New Year's, while we were in DeKalb visiting family. It was very clean and comfortable and it had everything we needed. The location was absolutely perfect: 5 blocks from downtown, about a mile from NIU (and less than a block from my Mom's house). Bob and Pam were... More

The amount of privacy the guests (and the hosts) have in this lovely spot is terrific. The mother-in-law cottage is fully dressed out with all the comforts of home, plus some extras (chocolates, fruits, a personal note at check-in) (lots of windows) (a tree-lined street) (private entrance). Etc. The bed is great; the bedding is comfortable. The cotton robes lovely.... More

The Parkside B&B is the perfect place to stay while visiting DeKalb. The cottage was spacious and clean and the breakfast was delicious. Pam and Bob went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, including finding a Pack n Play for our baby. A wonderful place to stay.

I have been wanting to stay at the Parkside Bed and Breakfast for a couple of years, and I've finally gotten a chance to stay here.

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
