“Three Roses? More Like Five Stars!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I could go on about the comfortable accommodations, the combination of friendliness and privacy, and the beauty of the surrounding town, but here is what really matters: the breakfast was excellent--especially the fresh orange juice, the cinnamon rolls, and the eggs. Stay here.

Wife and I visited Pontiac, IL to meet with friends and explore the history of the area and the town specifically. We stayed at Three Roses two nights, Friday and Saturday. We had off street parking and a wonderfully quiet stay. Sharon's cooking was excellent and the accommodations were very neat and clean. Our location just a block from the courthouse was excellent for our trip as we spend much of our time visiting the museums within two blocks, the shopping, and restaurants. We chose wisely! :-)

Room Tip: Possible rooms to the back would be quieter, we were on the street side, but as it is a small town i...

The room facing the street does have the most street noise. It is generally quiet at night but for guests like me that need total quiet to sleep, we provide free ear plugs just in case. I don't believe anyone has ever had a problem sleeping in this room. Marcia's Room is the only room that faces the street. Many guests choose Marcia's Room because it has a TV, is right next door to our new, large, beautiful bathroom, and because they can see the historic courthouse from the 3 bay windows.

This is the second visit for this couple. They feel like family now.All of our rooms have some unique quality that the others don't. Just depends on what you are looking for. I presently have a guest in the least expensive Room, Jennifer's Room, and she absolutely loves it or she is a very fine actress. She likes the privacy and said the bed was very comfortable. She loved everything she had for breakfast. She'll be here 5 or 6 nights so she has lots yet to experience.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience here with the lovely review. This one seemed to get away from me so I apologize for my late response. Trip Advisor used to let us know when we got new reviews but they stopped doing that apparently because I just happened to check today and found I've had 4 reviews this year that I didn't know about.

Sharon will give you a personalized experience from booking your room to choice of home made breakfast. We three came to Pontiac to see the Pontiac Oakland Museum (excellent) on the Red Carpet Corridor, Route 66 from Cicero to just south of Pontiac. You get a place to park, but you can easily walk to the Route 66 Museum, the Old Courthouse where Lincoln and Douglas argued a slander case, and the pleasant shops with very nice people in the town. For restful greenery check out the swinging bridges over the Vermilion River. The bathrooms were immaculately clean, you get your own coffee maker in your room, and Sharon bubbles over with enthusiasm.

Room Tip: All rooms on the second floor up a staircase. Choose the Garden Room to get control of the thermost...

I know our website says on the home page that all rooms are located on the 2nd floor and are not handicapped accessible. Some guests don't read everything on the home page. There's a lot of information there. We try our best to make sure the rooms are a comfortable temperature. We have extra blankets in the closets for those who need them. Marcia's Room also has a separate heater in the room because it's one of the cooler rooms in the house. The couple who came with this reviewer was in the Garden Room and had control of the thermostat. I was unaware there was any problem. The reviewer chose a slightly less expensive room that didn't have an extra heater in it. I can't recall the temperature her friends had it set at, but was not aware it was an issue.

The wife treated me to a close to home birthday get-away and I mentioned to her a few times about getting down state to visit some of the small towns. Pontiac is a great place to visit for a day or two and we would highly recommend staying at Three Roses. Sharon is an all out great host. We were lucky enough to be the only couple for the one night we were there, The house is cozy, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is exceptional. Sharon was nice enough to bake a birthday cake for me to take home...which was excellent, along with a bunch of scones...also one of my favorites. When walking around town and having dinner, all the locals had nothing but praises for Three Roses. It is just an overall nice, pleasant experience.

It was fun to surprise you with the scones your wife said you loved and the birthday cake to take home. Wish you could have stayed longer than one night so you could take advantage of our 25% off for stays longer than one night. There is so much to see and do, it's hard to pack it all in in one day. Pontiac is constantly adding new adventures for our guests. We've been so busy I haven't gotten to see some of the more recent additions so I've got to get downtown. It's so close - just 2 short blocks.

Starting with the reservation, through check-in and ch+++eck-out, Sharon, the owner of 3Roses is a talented chef, hostess, and decorator.Going to Pontiac for ANY reason, spend a little extra over a local motel and truly enjoy your visit.The entire house is beautifully decorated with period furniture, textiles, art and comforts that are better than home. Personally, I don't make chocolate ship cookies from scratch to have before bedtime, or a fritatta for a Friday morning breakfast, with fresh-squeezed and frothed orange juice, but Sharon does! Fresh coffee ready when you ask for it, with a smile. It was just my husband and me but would be fun for a family or friend group to take the whole house.Anything to do in Pontiac? Route 66 Museum. War Museum is definitely worth an hour or two; or more if you are really interested in history, the contribution of every-day Americans; definitely well-done and accurate portrayals. Yes, for 3Roses and Pontiac!

We are from Chicago and traveled to Pontiac for a family funeral, which was a joyous celebration of an uncle's life.

Room Tip: One room has a private half-bath, which is good for newly-weds and people with health issues. Ha. Ha...
