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. 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 !!!!

Parkside Bed and Breakfast was the perfect spot for our weekend away to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and attend a family wedding. We arrived quite late after driving over 6 hours and through severe weather. We received such a warm welcome and check in was very quick. Since we had not stopped to eat they gave us a great...

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...

Booked a few nights at Parkside for some R&R after a business trip in Chicago and we couldn't have picked a better place! The accommodation is just fantastic, fully furnished with much more than one would expect. You get your own place, with its own street address, it's own lounge, dining area and fully equipped kitchen, great walk in shower... More

My wife and I just got back from a weekend in DeKalb, staying at Parkside, and couldn't have been more pleased. We wanted to stay at a B&B since we missed the B&B we normally stay at in Champaign during the first week in May. It was as much as we could ever ask. Comfortable beds, soft towels, cozy robes,...
