Senator Rickert Residence Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 3 Waterloo B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 14, 2010

We stayed at this B&B when we came for a wedding in a nearby Illinois town. What a delightful experience! The building itself is a beautiful, fascinating, historic structure. The owners have restored it very sensitively, and it is in wonderful shape. There is a very pleasant garden out back, which is a nice place to just sit and read, or have a drink in the afternoon. The "room" we stayed in was actually a large, two-room suite (bedroom plus sitting room). It was also beautifully restored and decorated. The bathroom was huge, and had every possible amenity, including a coffee maker, microwave and small fridge. There was even a second-floor porch, which overlooks the garden and a fountain. If you must stay in touch, there is wireless internet. As I said to some friends: staying here is like visiting your grandma, if your grandma owns a beautiful old house, has excellent taste, and is a fastidious housekeeper.

Breakfasts were also wonderful. One of the dishes (blueberry surprise) was so good that I asked for the recipe. They are served in the kitchen, and you eat with the hosts. They always had coffee waiting for us, juice, and fresh fruit, as well as the hot entree. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, and were interesting to talk to. They can give you good advice about places to eat and things to do in the area. All in all, this is one of the best places we have ever stayed.

My only caution would be that the room is up a flight of rather steep steps. If you have problems with steps, this might not be the best place for you.
