Blessings on State truly is a beautiful stately home that came highly recommended to us. Gwenn, Glenn and Valerie are all so personable and work hard to accommodate you. My husband and I were fortunate to have the Tranquility Room with the large private bath and adjoining sitting area - everything in working order and very clean! The location is... More

We stayed one night and wish we could have been spent more. Lovely property that is tastefully curated by Gwen and well kept grounds a la Glen. Breakfast included a gluten free waffle and a yummy steamed apple with caramel. The location was peaceful and quiet. Great night with a little dulcimer solo by the gracious assistant manager, Val.

My husband and I had a truly blessed time at Blessing on State. Our stay was cut short due to a sudden death in our family and the innkeeper was most gracious and caring. The house is absolutely beautiful, with charm and elegance every where you look. It was rainy the entire time we were there so I didn't get... More

My wife and I stayed for our anniversary and we loved it. Had sparking grape juice and glasses waiting on us in our room and their attention to details make it a great stay. And they have the best assistant inn keeper!! She made our stay much more special!

We stayed in this B and B on a "roots" trip to southern Illinois----turned out to be the former home of a childhood friend in the fifties! It is a lovely, stately home that has been beautifully updated and appointed, and the family that runs the home is most welcoming and personable. The breakfasts are magnificent, and the innkeeper's baking... More

I stayed here with my sister and her family over fourth of July weekend and it was amazing. Far superior to any of the hotels in Jacksonville, and worth every penny for the spacious accommodations. I did not expect a B&B with this level of luxury (beautiful linens, furnishes, etc) from my stay in Jacksonville. The innkeeper and staff (i.e.... More

Our room was gorgeous. The bed was insanely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. And Gwenn was wonderful. Her daughter was the cutest and showed us our room perfectly. She even brought up cookies! We had our 8 year old son and they were very welcoming!! Many B&B's do not allow children - even if they are quiet and well behaved. It... More
