If you are looking for a wonderful weekend getaway, this may very well be the place for you. It is set in the Historic Village of Elsa IL. The homes are wonderfully old and well maintained and we loved strolling around the streets and thinking of retiring to a place such as this. The rooms are clean and well maintained and decorated nicely. The owners are new and have done a great job of keeping this Historic Inn running. Nice breakfast and treat in the evening. We hung out in the main area and watched some TV and read up on the area our first night. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The only draw back for some might be that you have to drive to get to any shops or restaurants. It would be great if they opened a few shops and had at least one restaurant in Elsa so you didn't have to go to Grafton. However, that can also be part of the great weekend. We loved Grafton. The shops, wineries, the river... Food/Drinks/View are awesome at the Loading Dock and also at the Grafton Winery. This is a b & b that I would go just to be by myself sometime - and that isn't something I can normally say.
