Pinehill Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 Oregon B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 20, 2011

We stayed at this B&B for a weekend getaway without the kids. Oregon, Illinois is only about 1-1.5 hours from the western suburbs of Chicago and has many state parks nearby. Pinehill is a very nice older mansion, but has many modern updates and other details that I have never experienced at other B&Bs. The updates include a small refrigerator in all rooms and a private bathroom for all rooms as well as a computer set-up for guests to use. The owners think of many details which are very nice such as the snack and drink area which is open at all times to a big library of movies to watch in your room. There is a TV with VCR/DVD (in our case, 2 of them) in all of the rooms. This TV is very small, but not really why we went to a B&B in the first place. There is a large veranda and a nice screened porch which we used at night to relax with a bottle of wine. The owners are very nice and very flexible, they allow you to take your breakfast or snacks up to your room or eat it outdoors on the porch or veranda if you wish. We did think the full breakfast package was a little pricey, but you can also have a continental breakfast, which includes a lot of choices. Overall, a very nice, quiet place which pays a lot of attention to the details.

We loved the Pinehill Inn. The inn itself is beautiful as are the rooms. The amenities were the best. Each room had a refrigerator and a TV with VCR/DVD. There was a large supply of movies to choose from. There was also a well-stocked pantry that offered all sorts of snacks and drinks as well as home-made muffins. The breakfasts were excellent. And the hosts, Chris and Ken, were very friendly and fun to visit with. We would definitely go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pine Room, the smallest one but all that was available when we booked. It had every...

(I stayed at this place four years ago, but the site format did not allow me to pick a date that far back.)
I became acquainted with this place because of a gift certificate I received. My husband was wheelchair-bound, and we had encountered a lot of inaccessibility at some places. I called them (phone number 815/732-2067, toll-free number 800/851-0131) and explained our situation. Ken and Chris were so accomodating! The building is easily accessible by wheelchair, the rooms each had historical significance, videos/dvds and tv were available, and the meals were delicious! We were not able to return because my husband's health declined and he passed away last year, but if I get another opportunity to visit this place I will!

We stayed at the Pinehill Inn after driving out from Chicago for a weekend.

It’s an 1870’s Villa that’s a historic monument – and it’s very beautiful. The new owners have big plans for it and were in the process of renovating other rooms. However, we had a very quiet and comfortable stay in Somerset room – a huge four poster, sitting area and separate en-suite bathroom with 70’s style whirlpool bath! Good and deep though. Bits in the bathroom such as toothpaste, soap, bubblebath etc but no shampoo (and yes, i forgot mine). Oh and Bathrobes too.

The only downside was that at the moment all sash windows are painted shut, but apparently this only bothers Europeans – I would have loved to have the windows all open!

This is in a quiet residential neighbourhood, a short drive from Oregon town centre. If you’re looking for a quick getaway in a “stately home” I’d recommend it.

(i have photo's of other rooms but it takes too long to load them!!! Bonaparte has bath with shower over, Rose room has just standing shower in a very small bathroom)
