It does not get any better than this. When will you ever have the opportunity to sleep and swing in a silo? So incredible for those who truly enjoy a quirky experience, however if you looking for a typical bed and breakfast, keeping looking. Marcia is warm and well informed, made us feel right at home. Don't miss this one.

This past June we had an itch to go for a little nature walk. We decided to do a little gallivanting up to "Starved Rock State Park" for the weekend and stay the night. We were pleasantly surprised to find Marcia’s B&B. She totally tickled the "CuriosGeorge" in me. When I heard the words, “Grain Silo with a swing inside”…... More

Overall, I think Tripadvisor gives some very good information but overall the reviews show this B&B as being good. This is a injustice to accurate reporting. Lets look at our recent stay & we have stayed at Over a 1,000 places. -The lady is nice and genuine. She is friendly conversation and will make you feel comfortable. I think Mrs.... More

If you truly want a Illinois farm country experience, you need to stay at Marcia's. The rooms are cozy and unique. The artist in Marcia is represented in each of her rooms. Eclectic is the best description. Leave your 5 star hotel wishes behind, Marcia's is country comfortable, warm, and welcoming. A place you want to just "hang". Marcia, we... More

We were given a stay at Marcia's as a Christmas/Anniversary gift, and it was the best gift we have ever received! We stayed in the Grain Bin, and it was absolutely amazing. All the woodwork is hand-made. It is cozy, and spacious all at the same time. We loved the farm setting, and the quaintness of the little things, like... More

This bed and breakfast not only is located near the interesting history of Starved Rock, but Marcia herself is a true treasure of kindness, and amazing interesting stories of her personal experiences with the Native American tribal history in the region. She treated us like family, made delicious food, helped us find anything and everything we were interested in seeing.... More

My husband took me up to Ottawa for some hiking for my birthday. He found this little bed and breakfast and the reviews were good so we gave it a try. It was DIRTY to say the least. We stayed in this cute little renovated silo. It is a great idea in theory, but it must be too much for... More

I stayed at Marcias bnb and it was a very great stay.. The thing that I remember the most was what a lovely woman Marcia is.. Her breakfast is good and her conversation is genuine and full of love for life.. You will feel welcome at her place and if you can relax, you are sure to enjoy your stay..... More

I have been going to b&b's for quite some time. Marcia's was a welcome change of pace. This is not the place for you if you want a HOTEL TYPE of B&B. This is truly a retreat from the normal. This B&B is a truly on a farm. The Host is a down home lady that likes to socialize and... More
