Lovely traditional home with welcoming hosts. Brick walk and steps to front door mean it is not handicapped accessible. Once inside there is a small elevator to transfer luggage or persons to the next floor. Our two rooms each had attached bathrooms. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. Each room had a small sofa with a reading lamp. Cold soda pop and water was available in a small refrigerator on our floor, as well as microwave popcorn, but we were not hungry or thirsty enough to use them. Our hosts were very friendly, and happy to share some of the history of the home and town with us. And the man of the house is the mayor of Petersburg!

We stayed at the Branson House B&B when we had a wedding at Hill Prairie Winery in Oakford, IL. The other option was to stay in a hotel in Springfield, IL which would have been a 45 minute drive AND more expensive. We had a lovely room (stayed in Sylvia's Chambers) with a comfortable bed and our own bath, in room. Breakfast was great each day and we went into town one night, which was just a short walk down the hill. I'd recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a great place to stay when in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private bath in room

Stayed at Branson House for only one night but could have moved in! Had the choice of staying at a no-tell motel or a B&B while out of town on business in a very small town. This place was the right choice. The house itself is spectacular, and my room was so quaint and peaceful. Everything waw SPOTLESS. So many little extras...a computer right outside my room, flat screen tv, choice of many dvd's, little snacks and drinks right outside my room. I lit the electric fireplace, layed in my bed (so comfy -- top quality sheets) and relaxed. Again, did I mention this place is spotless? In the morning Norma cooked the best breakfast ever -- homemade blueberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, etc etc etc. The house is just great. So romantic! If you want to get away, do try this place! If I am ever in the area I will definitely stay again. Two weeks prior I stayed at the Riverbank Lodge right down the street. NO Comparison and price is literally the same! The only issue I did have was the people in the nedxt room had their TV on very, very loud and were watching shoot em up action movies. I finally, at 10:30 pm knocked and asked them to turn it down which they did. Turns out it was a family of 5 in this one room (3 children and parents). That explains that.

We love Bed & Breakfasts but never know what to expect from various ones we book with for the first time. This bed & breakfast's pictures online were exactly what we were looking for and in a town just as we had hoped. As it turns out after our arrival, this B&B run by the town mayor and his wife exceeded all of our expectations. The rooms are so very quaint and we loved our greatly. The hosts treated us so, so well. What a generous couple this is. Breakfast was family style which was so neat and we were actually sad to leave. Our 6 small children were anxious for our arrival home after 2 nights away. So much to tour and see there in Petersburg/Springfield. Will take our children to this area next time and try camping BUT simultaneously dream we're back in Sylvia's Chamber ! Thank you John and Norma - greatly !

We stayed two nights in the Branson B&B in Petersburg (close to historic New Salem, an early Abe Lincoln dwelling/business site). Our hosts were gracious and delightful, full of lots of local lore (husband John is the local mayor) and had hospitality galore. The house itself, a beautiful 1876 Eastlake mansion, is both affordable and comfortable; the breakfast is hearty and ample. If you're there for Springfield sights, Petersburg (a half hour drive from Springfield) is a quiet, restful place with plenty of its own Civil War era (and earlier) history. We would definitely stay there again next time we're in the area. Our friendly hosts even presented us with a Happy Anniversary cake!
