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...

Dear Bob and Pam, Duane and I just want to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your place. You made us feel very much at home. Everything is so beautiful and the atmosphere is so very pleasant. We will definitely see y'all again in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later. Duane and Millie Liggins

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,...

Having been scared off by the hotel reviews, we jumped at the Parkside B&B, and are very glad we did. We were midway through a week of college visits, and this was a lovely break - an apartment of our own. We took the opportunity to order in (Pizza one night, Chinese the other) and watch some DVDs from Redbox.... More

We stayed for one night and had a very relaxing & comfortable get away. The B&B is very clean, modern and private. The breakfast was also amazing and there were a lot of little touches that really impressed us! We went to dinner at the Acquaviva Winery, which is about 15 minutes away. The perfect combo...

My husband and I were in DeKalb for an art show and small getaway. I was a bit worried as I pulled up because it looked like just a house and I know my husband is not the social type and was afraid it was one of those B&Bs that is not very private... I was blown away at the... More

We lived in DeKalb for over thirty years before relocating 12 years ago. When we have returned to the city made famous by barbed wire and hybrid corn we have stayed in the local hotels. Having discovered the Parkside B & B from which we just returned, we will never again stay in a hotel unless the Parkside is unavailable.... More

We went to visit a friend on the faculty at NIU. We decided to stay at Parkside based on the other TA reviews of the place. The other reviewers were spot-on about this being the place to stay. The carriage house or "cottage" is large, airy, clean, quiet, and pleasantly decorated with good light. The hosts were friendly and the... More

I've stayed here twice now and although I only get back to DeKalb once a year, this will always be my home away from home. I can't imagine taking a chance staying in any of the hotels in the area. The price of staying here is worth every dollar. You'll want to come back, I promise.
