Staying with family is great but since this is also our vacation, this year we decided to take a few nights together! I came across "Blessings on State" online. They had great reviews, it was close, and very reasonable! And best... More

This trip was a gift in more than one sense of the word. I am a veteran and this place gifted my husband and I a complimentary nights stay and dinner!!! There was also a fresh bouquet of red roses, artfully tied with a red, white and blue ribbon. Gwenn and Glenn's commitment to the service of others is so... More

As soon as I stepped into this beautiful, historical house, I knew I belonged. From the warm and friendly innkeepers' greeting and tour, to my truly serene Serenity Suite, I felt welcome and at home. My visit to Jacksonville was for sad personal reasons, so finding the cozy comfort of my sitting room to decompress at the end of the... More

Blessings on State B&B is a lovely Victorian home in the middle of Jacksonville's historic district. It is a beautifully decorated and clean home with an inviting wrap-around porch that we thoroughly enjoyed using to take in the lovely fall weather. Our 2nd floor suite was beautifully decorated and clean. The bath has been updated and has both a footed... More

"Parisian garret." I like that! We work hard to provide an environment that's different that a standard hotel room, and we've had fun with the French Country theme in the Tranquility sitting room. Thanks for staying with us. It was fun getting to know you and we look forward to having you visit again soon! More

My wife and I did an overnight at this exquisite B&B during a short trip throughout southern Illinois. We were warmly welcomed and stayed in their best room, which is really a suite.. The accommodations were excellent, with everything one could want to feel like royalty. We spent a good part of the evening in friendly conversation with the owners,... More

We scheduled a room at this bed & breakfast to visit Jacksonville for the Downtown Celebration, to visit old friends, and to celebrate our wedding anniversary. With 25 minutes left to go on our late Friday night, 3-hour drive, we had a bad encounter involving a deer, police, and a wrecker. Ugh. Through it all, our hosts Gwen and Glen... More

Our room was beautiful, comfortable and well appointed. Gwenn, the Innkeeper, made reservations for us at a wonderful place for dinner. We had settled in our room, and were enjoying down time, when her daughter, Valerie, brought us warm cookies to enjoy. It was a delightful stay. Jacksonville is a treasure in the middle of the Illinois prairie, or what... More
