“A Very Pleasant Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2008

This bed and breakfast is everything a traveler would want it to be. The house itself is delightful and charming. It is almost like a museum with all the antiques. Built in about 1876 makes it like walking into history. It is up on a hill overlooking Petersburg and provides a beautiful view. The grounds contain a beautiful gazebo, outdoor fire pit, a swing lots of chairs, and parking.
A front porch on the 2nd floor is furnished with wicker hairs and provides an even greter view of the valley.
Inside are two parlors, a dining area, and four beautiful rooms to stay in. Everything is bright an spotlessly clean. Each room has a TV with hundreds of movies available to use. But why watch TV when New Salem is just 2 miles away. Springfield.
And to top all of this off are the two hosts; John and Norma Stiltz. Absolutely great people. And boy can Norma cook up a great breakfast. Yummy, yummy!
Food in the local restaurants is excellent and just walking around Petersburg is an experience in itself. 5 STARS PLUS.

We just completed a weekend stay at the Branson B&B, in Petersburg, Ill. My wife and I highly recommended this B&B . It was pleasant, and the hosts were very friendly. Our stay was just like meeting old friends, and the breakfast is outstanding,

If the opportunity comes up again for visit in this area we will stay at Branson.
