This is a great location convenient to the Tunnel Hill Trail and numerous other state parks and the Shawnee National Forest. The house is also very quiet, comfortable, and has been beautifully restored. Norma went out of way to make sure that all our needs were taken care of and prepared a delicious and bountiful breakfast. We highly recommend Country... More

What a great B&B. We stayed with Norma the first week in April 2016. She was such a great hostess. The room was wonderful, Norma's years of antique collecting and her long family history in the area make this such a comfortable special home. She is a bike rider's best friend. She was a help from the moment we arrived... More

Hands down the best accommodations and breakfast of any B&B in Illinois...or for that fact the United States! You won't find a more gracious and lovely owner than Norma who takes care of your every need. This is a true gem nesteled in the rolling hills of Southern Illinois.

If you are staying near Vienna, or need a central place to stay for Shawnee, Giant City, White Crane Canoeing, or Paduccah, this is it!! Norma is the sweetest lady, and the best cook. Her home is so clean. Everything is antiques with class. Felt like we were staying with family. We sat on rockers on the front porch and... More

Stayed here while biking the Tunnel Hill trail. This was a real gem in the country. Furnished with antiques, with a very gracious host (Norma). Breakfast was fabulous, and the accommodations were wonderful. You could easily spend the whole day sitting on the porch or the Gazebo and watching the hummingbirds, rocking in the rocking chairs. A very serene getaway... More

We stayed three nights and loved everything. Great host, great food, and great time. Biked the Tunnel Hill Trail and visited many parts of Shawnee National Forest which our hosts suggested. After visiting the sites we started a fire and enjoyed the night in the country. Very peaceful place and quiet.

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at Country Schemes bed and breakfast while visiting this part of Illinois . I can't say enough wonderful things about the accommodations. We had requested the king room which had its own shower - it was perfect. We wanted to explore Shawnee National forest and ride parts of the Tunnel Hill trail.... More

Beautiful home and farm with outstanding above and beyond service. We were in the area for a marathon series which meant we were up very early and needed a late check out. She not only accomodated us, we had a hot breakfast waiting when we finished our race. And the food was wonderful! We just can't say enough about how... More

Country Schemes is a small B&B set out in the country. As you enter on a 1/8 mi lane you pass two ponds, and a lot of the acreage is kept well manicured. Norma is a lady that is knowledgeable, friendly, and down to earth. She does what a B&B person should do, she makes you feel at home. Her... More

My husband and I recently made trip to southern Illinois to Garden of the Gods and to do the Tunnel Hill Bike trail. Norma at Country Schemes made you feel right at home. Beautiful country setting, relaxing after a day of bike riding. She feeds you a bountiful breakfast before you hit the trails. Would highly recommend to anyone looking... More
