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! Pam was incredibly welcoming and helpful, the space was truly a home away from home, and we settled in with great comfort. The space - with it's... More

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. Close to... More

We decided to stay in DeKalb two days to celebrate our anniversary and to attend a concert. Upon arriving at Parkside B&B my wife and I were warmly greeted at the cottage door by our hosts, Bob and Pam. There also were some delectable chocolates and fresh fruit waiting for us to enjoy. After our hosts gave us a short... More

My wife and I just stayed at the Parkside B&B last night. (I needed to be in DeKalb to meet some colleagues). We arrived about 5:30, and at first weren't sure we wer in the right place, because no sign saying Parkside B&B and it looked like just another house on the block. Turns out there is a small sign...

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 !!!!

There are times when you wish you could spend more than one night in a place like Parkside Bed and breakfast in Dekalb. From the warm welcome, to the fabulous vegan breakfast, it was a great place to stay, both Kelli cannot rate it highly enough.

When we found that no rooms were available at the NIU Holmes center for a ballroom dance weekend, my husband's internet search turned up Parkside B&B. Read the other reviews -- Parkside is all that & more. The one cabin offered at Parkside is a wonderful combination of historic with modern conveniences. It is set up similar to a one-bedroom...
