I chose Longwell Hall on a recommendation from a local resident. The owner was kindly and well informed, but not over-bearing. The house was well set up and decorated without being fussy and pretentious. The room I stayed in was nicer than it looked on the website and the bed was very comfortable. My room had access to an upper story porch which was a wonderful place to catch a summer breeze and relax.
The location was great; easy to catch trains to downtown or just to wander the Oak Park/River Forest area. The breakfast was really tasty with fresh fruit and home baked quick bread. I would definitely stay there again.
