We stayed at Chestnut Street Inn on Tuesday night. Oh my, Monika is an amazing Chef. Dinner was over the top fantastic. We started off with a mixed green salad, then butternut squash soup, and main course pork loin on top of a bed of couscous. We spent the following afternoon developing a wine and spice course for my winery.... More

We've been going to the Chestnut Street Inn for supper since it opened under Jeff and Monika's care - 10 years. EVERY meal, EVERY dish, EVERY occasion the experience has been exceptional. Without a doubt Monika is one of the country's best chefs, period. She blends textures, flavors and colors intricately, elevating and highlighting each ingredient be it vegetable, baked... More

Having stayed at Chestnut Street Inn 20 years ago, we decided to make it our home base for our 25th Anniversary outing. We loved how the inn kept its traditional furnishings, and enjoyed getting to know the "new" innkeepers. We ventured to Princeton to shop and wine tasting in Utica, IL. We then returned to stay in the November and... More

We've not stayed here overnight, but as a "local" we have dined on many occasions. We've peaked in the rooms and have dreamed of a getaway. The inn is relaxing and welcoming. You can find things to do on day trips around the inn from small town shopping, to hiking, to a fabulous furniture store in neighboring towns. The food... More

The entire meal was of epicurean delicacies. The complexity of flavors presented in each course was astonishing. From the Sausage stuffed mushrooms; bacon maple Apple sweet potato soup; roast pork loin with pesto to the Grand Finale of the Saffron Riesling Poached Pear with Mascarpone Cream ------ Dare I say it….. It’s a true party on your palate & olfactory... More

We have been coming to the Chestnut Street Inn for a bit more than 3 years and recently celebrated a birthday here. The historic house was fully decked out for the holidays with lots of decorations, lights glowing in the windows, and a beautiful tree gracing the foyer. It was the perfect backdrop for a quiet, intimate evening. Jeff and... More

My husband and I went to the Chestnut Street Inn for a quick getaway, and it was a wonderful experience. The innkeepers are warm, friendly, and hospitable, the house is beautiful, and the food is superlative! Monika, one of the innkeepers and the chef, is very creative and amazingly accommodating of dietary restrictions and special diets. Her food has a... More

I have traveled all over the world and staying at the Chestnut Street Inn reminded me of the Romantik Hotels of Europe. Rich history, beautiful and the best food. I highly recommend! Checkout RomantikHotels.com if you are ever going to Europe. Just like the Chestnut Street Inn you will not be disappointed.

A wonderful place in Sheffield, IL The owners Jeff and Monica love what they do and it's obvious in all the details in the home. There are collectables from their travels and experiences. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, with no detail left out. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind with gourmet food "basically on... More

We went to Chestnut Street Inn to get away for a quick overnight refresher, after working non stop for month of July. WOW it seemed like a long weekend, it was so peaceful and quiet, slept like a lamb, with windows open and a quiet breeze! Woke up to read and then an enjoyable Banana Flax Pancakes and bacon breakfast,... More
