A niece told us about Grafton, Illinois as a nice place to set in a restaurant and watch the Mississippi River flow by. So looked and found Jeni J's Cottages. Being a Sunday night they had opening. Well we were pleased. Stayed in the Owners Cottage as it is called. Wonderful king bed, little kitchen area, nice bath and nice... More

Stopped by because the place was cute and looked interesting. It was cute, had some cute things to purchase. Whoever was working wasn't friendly at all. Never spoke to any of us :((, we would try again if we were ever in the area again.

Was looking for a last minute place to stay in the Grafton area and found this place. Easy check in and check out. The house was clean and ready early for us when we arrived. Will stay here again on future trips!

We rented one of the stone cottages for a bachelorette party and were so happy. It was very spacious and clean. This cottage held 8 comfortably and even had enough towels for all of us. You cannot beat the location, everything is in walking distance and the Grafton Winery is only a few steps away. There are so many quaint... More

This is my second time staying in the Cardinal House at Jeni J's. The experience has been top notch both time. Clean & well kept, it was even decorated not only in a Cardinals theme, but with a Christmas tree and all the other trimmings of the holiday. It's the perfect house for three couples to share. Plus it's right... More

We stayed in the Wharf cottage. King size bed is very comfortable. Fully stocked kitchen. Very clean. Centrally located. Nancy, the owner, is very nice. We stayed on a Tuesday night & it was very quiet. It does sit next to a pizza restaurant/bar but it wasn't open that night. I'm not sure how quiet it would have been had... More

As part of the large party that invaded Jeni J's at the end of January I wanted to say that we had a wonderful time. The cottages were great-close to lots of fun things to do but still private. I was lucky enough to stay in one of the cottages with a whirpool tub-greatly appreciated Sunday morning!! Will be bothering... More

We had a group of 14, seven couples, and rented the whole place. It was exceptional. All the cottages are very nicely decorated, warm and inviting. We loved the location as we walked to dinner at Mississippi Half Step despite the cold winter night and had some fun at both the Piasa Pub and Grill and the Crazy Beaver, which... More

We've stayed on all of the cottages. There are one, two and three bedrooms. They are all outstanding. The one and two bedroom have a kitchen sink and fridge while the 3 bedroom has a full kitchen. Two bedroom has a spa tub. They're right on main street. Easy to walk to lots of entertainment. The rooms are always immaculate... More
