Had our daughter's 18th birthday "English Tea Party" here and the girls had a great time. They enjoyed all the carefully prepared mini sandwiches and yummy desserts and the chance to socialize while doing something unique. Delightful decor and Sherry is an excellent hostess!!

An exquisite trip back in time with an elegant yet cozy décor. We stayed 2 nights and both breakfasts were very tasty and nicely presented. We were very comfortable in the Serenity Cove room but would have enjoyed staying in any of the rooms. We loved the feather bed and satin sheets. We've stayed at a number of bed and... More

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend on Valentines Day with my wife. We had the Jacuzzi room and the bed was soooooo comfortable. Had a filling breakfast on Saturday morning, excellent breakfast on Sunday morning. Quaint shops not far and numerous choices for lunch and dinner. Sherry was a gracious hostess and her poodle Romeo was well behaved.

Get away from the city and relax at this exquisite inn decorated with great detail to provide country charm but with modern features like AC, wifi, jacuzzi and tv. I've stayed at similar inns from Napa to Monterey and around the world. Sherry does it best and her delicious breakfast is scrumptious!

If you are looking for a cozy, comfy, out of the way place to stay then this is a must. The rooms are wonderfully filled with old school decor. The breakfast is great, prepared fresh by the owner Sherry. She is a gem and so is her home. You must try the place.

This cozy, romantic B&B seems a world and a century removed from the stress and bustle of Chicago. Our group was there not as overnight guests, but for High Tea. As Sherry led us on a tour of the inn and its exquisite accommodations, only ooh's, ah's and superlatives could be heard. Then we donned some wild retro hats and... More

This was a wonderful B&B to stay at. The breakfast was great. The only negative is that there is only 2 bathrooms for 4 bedrooms. The one bathroom is connected to a room the other bathroom is for the other 3 rooms.

My family and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts over the years and this was one of the best we've stayed at. The house was clean and well kept. The hostess, Sherry, was very helpful and accomodating to our needs and requests. She was able to recommend excellent places to eat and knew the area well. The breakfasts... More

Located in a beautiful 19th Century farmhouse it was beautiful and very relaxing; "fancy" without being pretentious, comfortable without being cluttered. Our innkeeper, Sherry, was most gracious and helpful. She made our little dog welcome and our Lady enjoyed playing with her Romeo. Close to Chicago it is in a very quiet small town that hasa lot to see and... More

This is a terrific bed & breakfast situated in a 1860's-era farmhouse...the owner Sherry has done a great job at keeping it period accurate and comfortable, and populated the house with antiques of the era. We also used the location to host a Murder Mystery for 7 couples. Sherry provided a catered meal and the elements of the game, and... More
