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 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.
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.
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!
We had a beautiful stay in July 2016. The house has a wonderful architecture and a charming flair of the good old times. It is huge, and Steven is a super nice guy. Suites are well maintained and breakfast very tasty. A 35 minute drive to O'Hare. Perfect stay outside of Chicago.
We had a great stay at The Mansion for one night. The hosts are very nice and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious. They also had around the clock butterscotch cookies and tea. The house has a nice old charm to it, and the room was cozy. (John F. Fierke Suite)
Stay there. Really. It's lovely. Sherry is a fantastic hostess. Carolyn makes a terrific breakfast. Great people to talk to over coffee and eggs benedict. Tea and really good cookies we're waiting for us when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable. Lady Theresa's Room is perfect for two people. The Presidential Chamber looked fantastic for a romantic getaway or a longer stay. Nice area on a dead end street. The right mix of quiet and close to everything. Pretty garden areas and porches give you space outside of your room to relax or work, with house wi-fi available. Traveler considerations: House cat Boogey Boy is unobtrusive and stays downstairs away from the rooms. We like cats, so we wouldn't have minded interacting with him more, but if you are highly allergic it is something to consider. Also, there are no guest rooms on the main floor, so you need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. Again, not an issue for us, but something to be aware of when planning your trip. We will stay there again at our next opportunity and you should too.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at The Mansion, the feel and the look took us back to more elegant historical times, so if you like the early 1900s this is the place for you. Our host and owner Steve was wonderful and very helpful besides a really good cook, cheese omelette was fantastic. Thank you, Steve and a shout out to his wife she made incredible butterscotch cookies.
This is a remarkable old home in a charming neighborhood. The mansion is beautiful — we especially liked the breakfast nook, but the exterior shows a little wear and tear. Steve was a great host, who wasn't intrusive but was available to chat about the house and make recommendations for local restaurants when we wanted to talk. He made us a fine breakfast, too.
We were there visiting family for the weekend and decided to stay at this B&B verses staying at a regular hotel like the rest of the family visiting also. And wow was that the right choice, they made you feel right at home right away and clean is an under statement. Morning coffee tray at your door with fresh scones was great and and then down to formal Dinning room for fresh fruit and an elegant breakfast was spot on. Staying here made a normal family visit into a great weekend get away for my wife and myself. Thank you.
Sherry and Carolyn are great hosts, and make you feel very welcome and at home. My husband and I have stayed here several times due to it's proximity to our "Chicago" friends and family. We have been very happy.
