Wonderful job Mathew on the property, the cottages, the incredible food and the way you connect with your guests. The Inn at Irish Hollow has no equal when it comes to laid back, tranquility. Our cottage was breathtaking and walking around the grounds took us back in time. Just wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thank... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. It exceeded our expectations! Our beautiful cottage "The Orchard Cottage" was magnificent to say the least. It was so richly decorated and the sunken bedroom with a see through fireplace was stunning. The bathroom has a huge jetted tub for 2 with wonderful bath salts... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and stayed in the Stonewood Cottage. Everything was simply amazing. It was so relaxing peaceful. The innkeepers were wonderful and Matthew did an excellent job cooking up some delicious vegan meals! This was the perfect weekend escape from the busy world!

Elegant cottages situated on 500 acres of the most scenic countryside combined with innkeepers gifted in cooking and landscaping made this an incredible place to stay. Hiking, biking, eating, and visiting historic Galena made this one memorable stay! Pricey but worth every penny.

The staff was thoughtful and kind enough to greet us at 10:45pm and went so far as to wait outside to make sure we didn't miss it as it's situated on a dark little country road. The Inn is beautiful and it's clear that a lot of love & creativity goes into everything; the decor, the ambiance, the grounds and... More

We had a fantastic time at Irish Hollow. The food and the sheets will blow your mind. They sell the sheets in their general store, buy them. The staff was absolutely wonderful, friendly and helpful. Saturday night a 7 course dinner is served so on Friday night we opted to go out to eat at a nearby resort restaurant. The... More

Our weekend started by a warm welcome from Matthew who was picking fresh herbs from the garden, then headed to our amazing Station House Cottage with champagne and strawberries for a surprise! The Cottage could not have been decorated more perfect, warm rich tones with each and every detail tailored to fit our cottage. Sheets to die for and an... More
