“Simple Pleasures Indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Simple Pleasures near Tuscola, Il, over Labor Day weekend.
The home is truly lovely and our room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The country setting adds to the charm. Bearnice prepared our breakfasts to our taste and the presentation was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed Bob and Bearnice's hospitality as well as the company of the other guest. What a peaceful and relaxing stay we had. Rev. and Judy

Room Tip: The Cameo Room was spacious and relaxing.

Delicious food! Beautiful home and property where you can unwind by walking on a trail, sitting in the hot tub, or just relaxing in your room! Amazing couple who will go out of their way to make you feel at home! If I could give them more that five stars, I would!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2011

Our group of friends from Northern Ireland and the U.S. met at O'Hare Airport in Chicago, and it was extremely stressful getting out of the airport and city. This was after a day of delays on both sides of the Atlantic and the usual hassles of international travel. We drove a few hours south to Simple Pleasures B&B, and it was getting quite late. We were impressed that the innkeeper waited up for us and saw that we were tucked into our beautiful rooms before going to her own bed. The elegance of this charming country B&B cannot be overstated. Each room has its own deluxe antique furnishings, features, and comforts. The quality of sleep in those delightful rooms was just what we need. We all awoke to an amazing morning and walks on manicured paths leading to the river, a goddess' statue, a hot-tub in its own gazebo, and lovely endless gardens. Then an amazing breakfast was served, starting with fresh fruits in yogurt sauce with home-made pumpkin bread, leading to a full breakfast of sausage, hash browns, eggs, biscuits, and ending with a breakfast dessert of fresh strawberry shortcake. It was really unbelievable, and all our stress was relieved. Thank you to Bob and Berniece for creating this bit of Heaven on Earth for weary travelers!

My wife and I and another couple spent 2 nights at Simples Pleasures B&B. The other couple had stayed there several years ago while under former management. They said service and furnishings are significantly better now.
The B&B is in a rural location, 1/4 mile from the nearest house and midway between Tuscola and Arcola. It's near the Amish and Mennonite areas, which we had come to see.
The house was built in the 1870's and later moved to its present location, where it was restored. Electrical and plumbing were redone, so everything works. Our only quibble (minor) was that reading lights in our bedroom were dim. When we mentioned this, the owners placed a stronger lamp in the bedroom.
Bob and Bernice, the owners, are very friendly and service-oriented. They offered to make root-beer floats in the evening, cleared away their kitchen table for the 4 of us to play cards, put out different snacks during the day, and were always there unobtrusively to help. Breakfast was good both days too.
Bottom line: if you want a rural break with attentive service, Simple Pleasures is a good choice.
