Romantic Getaways at our Bed and Breakfast in Illinois

From the moment you drive up the hill and park in front of our 4-story renovated former Jail – now turned luxury Bed and Breakfast in Illinois – you’ll feel as though you’re stepping back in time, to a moment when life was simpler; whimsical, even, and definitely romantic. Not only is our building (and the town as a whole) charmingly historic, but it’s romantic at its very core.

We do our best to create a special ambiance for you, too – one where you’re reminded of just how necessary and special these stolen moments with your special someone still are! As you step through the front doors, you’ll be warmly greeted and shown to your guest room – a spacious 800 square foot oasis that is yours for the duration of your stay.  Waiting in the room upon your arrival is a chilled bottle of champagne and a delicious assortment of our custom chocolates.

Once you’re settled in your room, we urge you to snuggle into our custom-designed Frette robes, which will cloak you in the most luxurious softness imaginable. Adjust the custom Bluetooth sound system to your desired background music, turn down the lights, crank up the fireplace, and sink into the luxurious comforts only a Bed and Breakfast in Illinois of our caliber can provide. These are just a few of the amazing amenities we offer!

Each morning of your stay, we’ll treat you to a scrumptious breakfast. Our menu changes often with seasonal and fresh ingredients serving as inspiration.  You’re welcome to join us for a socially distanced breakfast in the dining room, or, if you’d rather, we’ll bring the entire spread up to you to be enjoyed in the comfort and privacy of your guest room.

And, in the afternoon, we’ll repeat this hospitality by bringing you a delicious selection of charcuterie and appetizers – and freshly baked cookies! – along with your own personally chosen selection of wine.  Tuck into these treats right away, or save them for a late-night snack – whatever fits your style!

As if all of that weren’t enough to spur you to action in planning your romantic getaway at our Bed and Breakfast in Illinois – perhaps this will be: When lit up at night, our exterior lights reflect on the brick facade in a way to create a heart. This was not intentional, but it definitely reflects the romantic nature of our Inn.
