"Best B and B in the country, hands down, no question.”Stayed here for four nights at the end of May while attending a conference in DT Chicago.
Lovely neighborhood with lots of nice places to eat and drink. FANTASTIC cooked to order breakfasts. Free internet. Air conditioning. Great staff who are helpful, friendly and will leave you alone when you want them to. Short walk to the train to downtown. Huge, rambling space, with lots of public spaces you can relax in if you want to. Very welcoming. I stayed in the Da Vinci room, which has both a desk in the room and an office space just outside it in a private alcove with the room's bathroom. Lovely bathroom with whirlpool tub and heated floor. Street parking, which was easy to get near the B and B the one day when I did have a car. A great experience. Will definitely stay here the next time I am in Chicago!"
From our Guest Registry:
Thank you so much for such an incredible experience. The b&B is absolutely wonderful. The breakfast, Rocky, the room, the atmosphere, everyone here was fantastic. We wish we could move in. It was just a weekend away, but we hope to be back soon. We have loved every minute. --Jacob & Katie

Having Rocky sleep at the foot of our bed - what a treat and I bet other B&B's don't offer this extra.
Go Bears and good luck in the apple pie contest.

Eggs Benedicts were more delicious than the Four Seasons in Philadelphia.
