We are not Chicagoans, but after staying here and seeing how close we were to Chicago, anyone from there will not regret the trip. We were traveling from Dayton to Chicago when we found this wonderful place. The town is just a short distance off of I-65, but miles from the fast-paced life. Several nice shops and local restaurants add to the attractiveness, but the charm and peacefulness of the B&B are the reasons you should come here and then come back. We took a walk around the tree-lined neighborhood and the Jasper County Square; both relaxing and enjoyable. Our room was large, beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We also enjoyed sitting outside and had the privilege of visiting with the hosts who are both instructors at St. Joseph's College nearby. After a very quiet night's sleep, the wonderful aromas of breakfast were coming up the stairs as we were coming down. The only way our visit could have been improved upon is if we could have stayed another night!
