In Mt. Vernon for business or pleasure

5 sur août 11, 2015

Whether you are in Mt. Vernon for business or pleasure, Sidwell Friends is a delightful B & B and a great place to stay. We stayed for two nights and were treated to gracious hospitality in a beautiful tastefully decorated historic home. Larry is an attentive host and a very professional innkeeper and we especially enjoyed our conversations with him. The rooms are all wonderfully decorated with many antique furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and the large light filled bathroom sparkling clean with all the amenities you could want. Breakfast was exceptional both mornings with great food served in a lovely dining room on exquisite china. I highly recommend Sidwell Friends and can’t wait to return.


Lovely Stay

4,6 sur juin 02, 2015

My wife and I had a lovely one-night stay in The Dunaven. The decor was elegant, the room was very nice and clean, and our host was very friendly and helpful (and made a delightful french toast casserole). Would definitely stay there again if we were ever in the area!


Great Find in Southern Illinois

5 sur mai 25, 2015

My husband and I were attending a family event in the area and stayed at this B&B for two nights. We couldn't have asked for more. This is a gorgeous historic home with a winding tree lined drive. Each room is beautifully decorated. Our room featured a four poster bed with a very comfy mattress and soft sheets. We slept wonderful both nights. Our private bathroom was just steps away down the hall with a double vanity, heated floors and towel racks and big fluffy towels. Breakfast each morning consisted of fresh fruit, granola, yogurt and freshly baked breads with marmalade and Devonshire cream. The second course the first morning was a savory egg strata and the second morning baked French toast. My favorite breakfast item was the dark chocolate filled croissants!!! Larry is the ultimate host - very friendly and full of interesting stories. We highly recommend this B&B.


The Best of The Best!

This is my fourth time staying with Larry. The property is beautiful, meticulously maintained and the rooms incredibly comfortable. Fantastic breakfast. But the highlight is Larry! Interesting, fun to talk to and a truly outstanding innkeeper! You won't be disappointed!


Wonderful, restful stay

Great host, great house!

Lovely, beautifully decorated home. Larry was a great host, providing cold bottled water, a Keurig-machine and snacks upstairs near the bedrooms. Breakfast was tasty and fresh, too!


a perfect get away for our family

5 sur novembre 26, 2014

The rooms were a feast for the eyes. We met two members of our family there for a get away couple of days. Larry Sidwell was a perfect host and we basically had the house to ourselves He had lots of little extras for us, like coffee, tea, bottled water, and snacks available at all times. He had wonderful suggestions for meals, and the breakfast in the dining room was delicious--French toast, fresh fruit, wonderful baked goods, ham, and yogurt. I definitely intend to go back.


An Unexpected Gem in Southern Illinois

5 sur octobre 21, 2014

On a Monday night in early October we were the only guests. Larry welcomed us at the front door like old friends. He offered two breakfast options; French toast or strata. There was also fresh fruit, breakfast breads, granola and yogurt. Accommodations were immaculate and chemical-free, with no artificial scents. We slept well on an extremely comfy bed in the Pruett Room. Though it was at the front of the house, the room was very quiet. The bathroom is a short walk down the hall, just like at home. The next morning we visited the nearby Mitchell Museum at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts. Their remarkable permanent art collection includes works by Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent and more. --Travelers from Madison, Wisconsin


Relaxing and Restful

5 sur octobre 19, 2014

We stayed here as a stopover on a trip to Ohio. We stayed two different nights and both were great. The room was very comfortable and relaxing. It was just what we needed after driving in the car for 8 hours. The house itself was very clean and well decorated as well as cozy. My husband enjoyed taking his early morning tea out on the back deck and patio. Mr. Sidwell was very friendly and saw to all of our needs and served a wonderful breakfast at the time of our request. When traveling this way I can see us stopping in again.


Outstanding!

5 sur octobre 14, 2014

Another great visit at Sidwell Friends. The Inn is magnificent in every way. Larry will make you feel as if you are returning home for a long awaited visit. Thanks for such a wonderful moment in time.
