My wife and I stayed recently at Longwell Hall B & B for five days. We can recommend it wholeheartedly. Neil, the owner and host, is an excellent one. He is reserved and does not impose, but is at the same time very helpful and attentive. HIs breakfasts are great. It turned out he and I had gone to the same prep school in Connecticut, way back in the 1960's. The location is outstanding, in a beautiful part of the Chicago area, with superbly maintained mansions and grounds everywhere. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly.
