This bed and breakfast is everything a traveler would want it to be. The house itself is delightful and charming. It is almost like a museum with all the antiques. Built in about 1876 makes it like walking into history. It is up on a hill overlooking Petersburg and provides a beautiful view. The grounds contain a beautiful gazebo, outdoor fire pit, a swing lots of chairs, and parking.
A front porch on the 2nd floor is furnished with wicker hairs and provides an even greter view of the valley.
Inside are two parlors, a dining area, and four beautiful rooms to stay in. Everything is bright an spotlessly clean. Each room has a TV with hundreds of movies available to use. But why watch TV when New Salem is just 2 miles away. Springfield.
And to top all of this off are the two hosts; John and Norma Stiltz. Absolutely great people. And boy can Norma cook up a great breakfast. Yummy, yummy!
Food in the local restaurants is excellent and just walking around Petersburg is an experience in itself. 5 STARS PLUS.
