We had a Magical weekend at The Homestead in August. I was part of a wedding party there which was the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended. It could not have happened without the help of the amazing staff at the Homestead. Their attention to every need and wish was beyond expectations. We just go the photos and it... More

We stayed at the Homestead this past weekend and cannot say enough good things about it. Mark Kay, the innkeeper, was the perfect hostess. She was courteous, helpful and personable the whole time. More than that, she was the perfect accomplice to help me surprise my wife for her birthday. The house is beautiful. It was built in the late... More

I had the absolute pleasure of hosting a women's retreat at the Homestead. It is the perfect place for women to gather. We had such a a wonderful time, I don't know where to start. The house itself is charming and comfortable. There is plenty of room to be off to yourself, and ample space for the group to gather... More

I just had the pleasure of enjoying a weekend at The Homestead for a women's retreat. This is a beautiful, historic bed and breakfast. The decor is beautiful and inviting.

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely bed and breakfast last week while in the area for a meeting. I would highly recommend it for business or pleasure. Mary Kay is a most gracious host and made us feel right at home with her thoughtful amenities and homemade lemon lavender cookies. I would have loved to have lingered... More

If you want a short trip and get away from all the Chicago crazyness for a weekend, this is the place to be! Mary Kay is the best innkeeper that myself or fiancee have ever encountered. She upgraded us to a suite, for no extra cost, for our anniversary. Her hospitality went above and beyond all expectations! The estate itself... More

Mary Kay is an incredible host! She even picked up my daughter and I late in the night when our train came in. Breakfast was much more than I expected and she even catered to my daughters wants on the second morning! The rooms are wonderful! I am planning at least two more trips to Homestead in the next year!... More
