After a year and a half restoration and re-imagining, Lincoln Way opened its doors to guests on July 11, 2015! The Inn pays tribute to its turn of the century (1912) roots, with modern meets history approach. Located in the heart of the Midwest, the Inn offers a destination experience that engages guests in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the prairie countryside. We are at your service to plan your stay your way; hiking, personal yoga or local studio sessions, sauna, birding, indoor, meditation water garden and outdoor fireplaces, bicycles, near by renowned golf courses, five state parks just miles away and the treasured Nature Conservancy's Nachusa Grasslands of 5,000 acres of restored prairie where bison now roam again. Maybe you wish to relax, we are the perfect getaway. Outdoor covered patio pagoda garden with pergola, fireplace, hammocks and more can be enjoyed year round. Your room and adventure await!

We love the Lincolnway B&B. You are made to feel welcome from the moment that you arrive. Lisa is a genius in knowing and providing all of the small touches that make you feel like royalty. Each, and every room at the Inn is overflowing with comfort items from the bedding, to the toiletries, to the views, to the wonderful nourishing breakfasts when you awaken. The grounds are just gorgeous as is the incredible décor throughout the Inn. There is a Sauna and Masseuse for your comfort. Specialty packages are also available to enhance your stay. Travel tip- Pack a scarf scented with your favorite perfume to drape over the bedside lamp. This will mute the glare of the lamp, and the familiar scent will help lull you to sleep.

My family and I have stayed here a few times to visit our Grandparents. The house is beautifully decorated and so cozy. They have fridges stocked with drinks and snacks out all the time. They have a great porch and backyard patio with a huge fireplace and pergola. When we finished dinner, they would get a fire started in the fireplace and set out cozy blankets and pillows for us to use. Service is impeccable and breakfast in the morning is 5-star! Seriously, a HUGE gourmet breakfast. We will most definitely be back, love this place

Wonderful Lisa & staff run this gorgeous, upscale B&B with such care & passion. Happy vibes and creative attention to detail make the heart hum & eyes wander every inch of this gorgeous estate. Delicious, healthy, homemade treats beautifully presented from their garden & locally-sourced, including their own delectable honey (couldn't resist getting some from cute gift shop). We enjoyed a comfy room, colorful gardens & relaxing sauna. Felt so cared for, celebrating our anniversary. So glad friends recommended this unique getaway! By far the best B&B we've ever stayed.
