We spent one night at the Burr House B&B, and we loved it from start to finish! The exterior and interior are well kept and adorable to boot. The room was clean and tidy along with the private bathroom. The house was quiet as well as the neighborhood. The breakfast was delicious, and the company and conversation during breakfast were...

This is a dandy B&B in a hostoric century home. We stayed two nights, going and coming back, and were in different rooms each night. Both were huge--one even had ita own separate living room. Lovely grounds (which you are free to enjoy), comfortable, quiet, free wifi, a fine breakfast. Highly recommended.

We stayed here two nights - once on the way to Kansas and once on the way back. Our first stay was in the Sunset room which was delightful. It was huge with a private whirlpool bath - and shower. Our second night was in the Queen Anne suite, which was even bigger - with a delightful sitting room in...

This was a welcome one night stay for two weary cross country travelers. The house and rooms were charming and well-kept and we had the best breakfast of the trip. The owner Mary Anne has a wealth of info about the area and its history and really goes out of her way to make you feel at home.

We were so blessed with the wonderful stay at The Burr House. The Queen Anne Suite is beautiful and has a large, private bathroom; SO NICE!! Mary Ann, the owner, is a warm and caring hostess, and tailors the breakfast to accommodate any food allergies and preferences guests may have. Delicious homemade breakfast and conversation here! Thank you so much!!

We had the pleasure of staying one night last week at The Burr House in the Sunset Room. The room was lovely and our host, Mary Anne, very congenial. We'll definitely go stay there again when next in Bloomington.

I spent two nights at the Burr House and enjoyed my stay very much. I could not have asked for a better place. Very clean and comfy rooms. The location is great - in DT Bloomington - and getting to/from Normal is easy (both walking and taking the bus). Besides the location and the atmosphere of the house, I appreciated...

Great location on a pretty park in a historic neighborhood. Mary Anne was a wonderful and knowledgable innkeeper. We had the Best French toast for breakfast. We were Walking distance to Lucas's for great pizza. Comfortable rooms and beds.

I stayed at Burr House while in Bloomington on business. What a luxury to stay in this historic B and B. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was homemade with the added benefit on interesting company. Highly recommend it.

I stay at the Burr House Tuesday and Wednesday nights, in that I have a hour drive home from work, and staying here breaks up my week of driving. I stay in the Sunset Room, but next week I am moving on up to the Crow' Next, they both have private baths, the house is very quiet, Franklin Park right...
