“B&B AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Unique B&B located in a beautifully updated old brick home in trendy Oak Park . All is within walking distant including Unity Temple, studio, and home of Frank Lloyd Wright, Hemingway Museum, fabulous restaurants of every flavor, shops of every kind, and two blocks to the "IL" to zoom into downtown Chicago. I know....who knew?
Innkeeper Beth will grant your every wish, while she is whipping up something from scratch day and night ( the raspberry coffee cake was "divine"!!!) the rooms are spacious, clean, and the Jacuzzi tub for two was perfect after a long day of sightseeing. Two glasses of wine....just ask. Would not think of staying anywhere else.

My husband and I stayed at the Harvey House BB the weekend of 4/14/12. We booked the Jimmy Stewart room, and it's even more comfortable than the website photos suggest. A king-sized bed with plush bedding and linens... the jaccuzi in the bathroom (fits 1 comfortably)... and the chaise lounge by the fireplace. I enjoyed all three. Breakfast is a delicious affair, with homemade granola (generously laced w/almonds and coconut), oven pancakes (aka, Dutch Baby --WOW), eggs any way and bacon if you want. Beth, the innkeeper, is friendly and informal, and she does a great job of anticipating needs. This is our second stay, and my husband and I will definitely be coming back. Btw-- the 'L' is a 5-minute walk from the B&B, and we took it everywhere.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely. The Jimmy Stewart Room has plenty of windows,but these have shades for...

Fabulous B & B, comfortable, very clean,large luxurious rooms, and bathroom. Beth is a great host and fixes a wonderful breakfast. The location is great, a nice neighbourhood with many good restaurants within walking distance. Train close by to downtown. Overall would definitely return.

Room Tip: Jimmy Stewart room faces the train track (in case a light sleeper)

I stayed at the Harvey House B&B while I attended a program at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. While it is a bit of a hike to that location, it was just around the corner from the charming Oak Park downtown area, and two blocks from an el stop that provided an easy ride to downtown Chicago, so I felt the location was great. The B&B itself looks like a stuffy Victorian from the ouside, but inside has been completely renovated and opened up to create a lovely, contemporary atmosphere. My room, the Golden Chest, was beautifully furnished, the bed was comfy and the bathroom shiny, spotless and well lit. Breakfasts were delicious and bountiful, and the host and her helpers were wonderfully hospitable. Some people may be bothered by the periodic roar of the train whizzing fairly nearby, but I found I got used to it quickly and all the assets far outweighed this minor issue. I would stay at the Harvey House again and again.

Harvey House is a small and intimate, well run and unique B&B in Oak Park, by far the best place to stay in this great community. The breakfasts are great, rooms all quite different and each wonderful in it's own right, though my favorite is the Jimmy Suite. Beth makes exceptional granola(you can must tak some home if she makes it while you're there) and yummy treats for when you return at night.

Room Tip: Third floor suites or Jimmy best for longer stays.

We could only stay two nights, which was definitely too few. In a nutshell: Stunning room (Jimmy Stewart). Amazing bath. Delicious breakfast. Friendly innkeeper. Comfortable great room for relaxing.

We had planned to go out to the theatre but decided to cocoon in our beautiful room in front of the fire instead.

Loved it. I'd definitely come back if plans brought me near Oak Park again.

I can't go on enough about the beauty of the Harvey House B&B. We always stay at B&Bs while traveling and have stayed in over a hundred but I can't recall one as perfectly decorated at the Harvey House. Also every amenity was available including an open kitchen with snacks and beverages. Beth is an excellent cook and along with Leeann served us incredible breakfasts the two days we were there. The location was great to explore Oak Park and the Frank Lloyld Wright buildings. I agree with the last review that the noise from the train was extremely annoying but we were lucky that our room had an A/C unit that helped create white noise to dull the train noise. The train noise is why I am not giving this B&B a excellent rating but Beth and staff make up for it and I would stay here again!
