This inn was the perfect getaway,a short drive from the western burbs,but a world away.Farm fields on one side,and the Fox River below.I wasn't sure what to expect,as I had taken advantage of the "No Frills Special".What I got was a large,very nicely furnished room with a good comfy bed.The Inn is a large Victorian farmhouse that has been lovingly...

We just returned from Fox River Bed and Breafast and loved it. My husband and I with our daughter, son-in-law and our grandaughter stayed this last weekend at the B&B. We needed to get away for a weekend which would be within a 2 hr or less drive from the Chgo. & Northwest Indiana. This was perfect. Maria took the...

Beautiful, comfortable room, peaceful surroundings, and welcoming, helpful people made our stay here delightful. The price couldn't be beat. The history of the area was intriguing. The food was outstanding. A great place to just relax and get away from the city without traveling forever. Recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax on 17 wooded acres in this beautiful circa 1901 Victorian farmhouse, eight miles north of Ottawa, Illinois. Enjoy fresh country air, walking in the woods, bird-watching, sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch, and our hot, home-cooked breakfasts! Skydiving and canoeing, Starved Rock State Park just minutes away! Please call for availability. We also offer weekly rates for travelers, and the entire B&B can be reserved for your gatherings, or reserve the second floor for you and your guests. Five guest rooms that can sleep 14 guests. Great place to stay with your friends and family. Lots of history here, as the original family settled here in 1829. Charles Lindbergh's mail plane crashed on the property 6 months prior to his transatlantic flight, and Mr. Lindbergh spent two nights at the B&B. Hope to see you soon! ... more   less
