Stayed for our 25th Anniversary and had a great experience at the B&B. This is the first B&B we ever stayed at and it was excellent. Sherry has a wonderful place and made us feel like we were staying with family. The Presidential Chamber room was incredible. The breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get away for a night or a week.
This was our second stay at Sherry's B&B and we loved it just as much. Great room, excellent food, warm nurturing, and stimulating conversation ~ everything we want from a B&B stay. Thank you, Sherry and Carolyn!!
This is a great B&B. Sherry and staff did an amazing job. They are some of the nicest people I've met and did a great job making sure we were well taken care of. Everywhere you look there is some small detail in the house that has some story behind it. Most B&B's don't allow children - not only did they take us in but they took special care of the kids. When leaving my son said, "I wish we could have stayed for 3 more days". (As did we). We can't wait to come back.
I was in Algonquin area for business during 10 days, so I woke up early every morning week, and Sherry was attentive to provide a delicious and various break fast every morning even if it was early. I had a special relationship with Sherry as she stay with me during my breakfast to keep me company. I really appreciated this time. After works coming back in the house that smell good cookies was amazing. I really recommand Sherry's house. It's a cosy and friendly place to stay. 10 days far from my familly was finally not difficult, I feel like I was at home.
What a beautiful house! We loved the Terrace Room. Breakfast was terrific. Steve, the proprietor, was such a wonderful host, and we really enjoyed talking with him. Perfect location in West Dundee, and we were able to walk to dinner and around town, as well as around historic East Dundee.
Stayed last Saturday night and had a very nice experience at the B&B and surrounding area. Sherry has a wonderful place that is comfortable and inviting. A real treasure in the Fox Valley. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get away for a night or a week.
My girlfriend (when we checked in) and I really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was kind and courteous, and the mansion was very charming. Everything we wanted or needed was provided and nothing was missing. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice as was the little Italian restaurant a couple blocks away where we dined. The river was just another block down from there so there's plenty to do surrounding the mansion and it's all within walking distance. Breakfast was excellent! My fiancé (when we checked out :) and I had a great experience here and would definitely recommend a stay.
My wife & I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary with a 3 day stay at Victorian Rose Garden. The staff was super friendly and did everything possible to make us feel at home. The breakfast was something different every day and simply wonderful!
We stayed at Bishops Hall for the weekend and had the nicest stay. The home was stunning and the room was comfortable and well-appointed. Set in a quiet, mansion-filled neighborhood, the home is a ten minute wall from restaurants, activities and the Frank Lloyd Wright home. Breakfast both mornings was delightful. We would highly recommend Bishops Hall to others while visiting Oak Park or Chicagoland.
We had a wonderful stay at the Victorian Rose Garden. We were welcomed warmly and made to feel at home. The grounds are beautiful and my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the porch conversing, reading, and admiring our surroundings. Sherry and her helpers were very accommodating and pleasant. After a good night's rest, the breakfast waiting for us was outstanding and attentive to my wife's food allergies. All and all a great stay. We will be back!!
Made a second visit to the Victorian Rose Garden and it did not disappoint. Sherry is a great host, making you feel comfortable staying in this beautiful home. The facilities were a perfect match for our stay in the area. The town is a neat place to be. The breakfast was Great! Sherry made sure she accommodated my wife's diabetic needs. Breakfast is always better with good company to share it with.
The Victorian Rose Garden far exceeded our expectations - so glad we found this little gem. My husband and I stayed in the Sir James room and our son was in the Lady Alicia (we should have traded rooms as the Lady Alicia is a tad bit larger than Sir James. However, both rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable. The owner/hostess, Sherry, could not have been nicer and, along hostess helpers, Carolyn and Georgia, we were spoiled to death. Breakfast each morning was delicious beyond words (I don't usually eat breakfast but here I couldn't help but clean my plate each day...yumm!). We all agreed we will be returning whenever we're in the area to visit our grandchildren.
My husband and I spent a long weekend at Bishops Hall at the end of an intense few weeks of grandkids and family reunions and road trips--and it could not have been more rejuvenating! Charles Tupta is the epitome of the gracious, helpful and approachable host. We stayed over 4th of July weekend and in fact he had given his long-serving housekeeper a holiday, so he was doing much of the cooking and cleaning himself--and he even gave us a ride to the el station one morning. The home is so well-appointed and authentic that it is breathtaking, and yet it doesn't have that pretentious feeling that makes you afraid you'll break something. Never have we had such a perfect B & B experience--and we would highly recommend it. The rates are reasonable, the food is delicious and the location is convenient, in a quiet upscale neighborhood in Oak Park with easy access to downtown Chicago.
This was our fifth visit and it is as if we are visiting family when we stay. The home is charming and we absolutely adore Sherry and Carolyn. We are already planning a return trip this summer. An absolutely wonderful bed and breakfast.
My wife and I love staying at a good bed and breakfast and this was no exception. Everyone from the guests to the hosts were so lovely and inviting. My wife and I absolutely loved every minute at this bed and breakfast and if anyone has not yet checked it out you will not be disappointed. The breakfast the next morning was also fantastic.
We were in town for an event and we enjoyed Sherry's & Carolyn's company. The breakfast was awesome. Ginger pancakes with a lemon sauce along with a crust-less quiche plus a nice variety of tea. We would recommend the Victorian Rose Garden to our friends.
My bestie and I spent the weekend catching up and working. We had a blast. The room was comfy and the house beautiful! The ladies who run the show are warm and funny. The best part, the breakfasts. Incredibly delicious. Wonderful cookies in the evening. We laughed so much. Stay here! And as a side benefit, walking distance to many nice restaurants.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everyone there made us feel completely comfortable, the food was excellent and the conversations with both the staff and the other guests made for a great time. We look forward to going back another time.
This treasure is located in the heart of Old Chicago's turn of the Century mansions of Oak Park. You can walk to 2 dozen of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous early Designs. Bishop's Hall is a different example of the architecture of that early 20th century era. The owner makes the entire home open and accessible to his privileged guests. Charles is more interesting than his estate with colorful stories to add to his breakfast affairs.
The food was amazing, and the host is genuinely nice. The house is a wonderfully restored example of Mid-Western Victorian architecture, and features period correct decor. The bed was OK, but bring your own pillows. The pillows were flat. Truthfully, this was our only complaint. Aside from that, it was a wonderful weekend!
