Country Palmer House is located on a spectacular ridge just a short distance northeast of Mt. Carroll. I recently spent the night there with an old friend who had been my room-mate at nearby Shimer College over 50 years ago. We made the drive out from Chicago to revisit our old campus, and needed a place to spend the night... More

This B & B is charming and comfortable. My husband and I have stayed there year after year when we visit Mt. Carroll for Mayfest (Memorial Day Weekend). The owners are willing to answer all the rural life / farming questions we city slickers come up with. Those folks who wrote an uncomplimentary review need to open what sounds like... More

Joann and Allen (the owners) could not have been more welcoming. The house is neat and clean, and the Palmers are friendly and eager... More

Lets just say, if you like individual soaps taken from motels, sleeping in the owners bedroom (that's what our friends were given), and having breakfast with the owners in the morning (great spread, poor company), this is the place for you. While some bed and breakfast operations are the life long dream of the owners who want to give their... More

As the owners of The Country Palmer House we were troubled to see this review. We are certainly in the business of hospitality because we enjoy serving the area tourists to a comfortable, clean and beautiful setting. We have been in this business since 1986 & have been members of the Illinois B&B Association, inspected and approved. Our records do... More
