This is an unusual B&B - it's more like crashing at an old friend's place, if your friend lived on a small organic farm and liked cooking you huge, delicious breakfasts. This guest house is really a family home, with the addition of two guest bedrooms. It's run on renewable energy, and a commitment to sustainability is evident in all...

We stayed at Inn Serendipity for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday. It was a special and memorable weekend, spent chatting at the bonfire, laying in their hammock, biking and eating their delicious breakfast. They were very accommodating to my dietary needs and kindly gave thoughts and ideas about our own eco-friendly endeavors. We would recommend staying with Lisa and...

Lisa and John have created a very special place in beautiful, historical Green County. Inn Serendipity combines the charm of a real farm house with the warm hospitality of a true B&B. As a guest, I felt like I was welcomed into their home while also having all the privacy and quiet time alone that I wished for. The hosts...

From the moment we arrived, Lisa, John, and son Liam made us feel right at home with a tour of this bucolic farm/B&B. Top-shelf personal attention to our needs and questions put us at ease. They were very knowledgeable about the area incl. highlights of the Stagecoach Trail, nearby Galena, Monroe eateries, Green County, etc. John and Lisa truly walk-their-talk...

We had discovered Inn Serendipity in the National green Pages quite some time ago, and we finally had the opportunity to visit for two nights earlier this month. Our two nights were at the end of a short road trip "off the beaten path." Inn Serendipity was exactly that. The farm house was a gem -- and the surrounding farm...

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Inn Serendipity. The hosts were absolutely fantastic: personable, full of knowledge, warm, and friendly. We had an easygoing tour of their farm, good discussions, and were even invited to a local potluck supper- it was a lovely evening. The morning was quite relaxing, and complete with an amazing breakfast full of local fare....

We enjoyed two nights at Inn Serendipity. The breakfasts were delicious, and John and Lisa were very accommodating to my dairy-free diet. It was a pleasure to see their large kitchen garden, renovated straw-bale green house and even enjoy a few wood fired pizzas in the evening. I would recommend a visit, especially if you live in the city, this...
