What a joy. Maria and Bobby Jo are the odd couple of hosts, but the atmosphere they provided was just the ticket. Clean rooms, beautiful claw-foot tub, and an amazing breakfast made this visit very enjoyable. Plenty to do in the area, with Starved rock, wine tasting in Utica, and a canoe trip right down the block. Interesting history, too. Ask about the old brick building and the history lesson begins. Nuns, gangsters, mob connected mayors all come together at an old sulfor springs for a story you will not soon forget.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Relax on 17 wooded acres in this beautiful circa 1901 Victorian farmhouse, eight miles north of Ottawa, Illinois. Enjoy fresh country air, walking in the woods, bird-watching, sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch, and our hot, home-cooked breakfasts! Skydiving and canoeing, Starved Rock State Park just minutes away! Please call for availability. We also offer weekly rates for travelers, and the entire B&B can be reserved for your gatherings, or reserve the second floor for you and your guests. Five guest rooms that can sleep 14 guests. Great place to stay with your friends and family. Lots of history here, as the original family settled here in 1829. Charles Lindbergh's mail plane crashed on the property 6 months prior to his transatlantic flight, and Mr. Lindbergh spent two nights at the B&B. Hope to see you soon! ... more less
