The home and tour were BOTH better experiences than we anticipated!!! Not only did we have a tour guide but he is the son in law of the original family. So, he was able to share history that no one else would know. There were so many details and of course there was CARE since the family restored the house and lives there. The decorating was impeccable! We were blessed as well to have the Dean of Architecture from IIT in the group so that added an element as well. The tour was estimated to take one hour but with the 18 people in the group, it extended to 1 1/2 hours. GREAT!

Interesting and well-maintained home - loved the little facts and tidbits. The tour was the perfect amount of time and loved the down-to-earth charm of the event. My daughter and I selected the perfect birthday gift for him. Would love to be notified if anything changes for the bed and breakfast! Thank you!
