The perfect weekend

5 on May 01, 2016

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.

Perfect location

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.

Wonderful Getaway!

Getting away from home..

5 on February 19, 2016

My wife and I travel to the north west Chicago area every year for some Christmas shopping away from home. This year we were in this area 3 times to pick and then get a new kitty. We have usually stayed in one of the hotels around that area but for this trip we decided to find a B&B and we are so glad we did this. The area is perfect for our annual trip and the Victorian Rose Garden was and excellent choice. After making the reservation we received a call from Sherry asking if we were having any special event or if there was a special diet required. After getting our things settled in our room we went back downstairs where we sat at the kitchen table and chatted with Sherry and Carolyn while they fixed us some wonderful hot tea. The tea was very welcome since it was very cold outside that evening. Our room was very comfortable unlike most hotel sterile white rooms. The lovely house is from the late 1800's. Lovely woodwork and wall paper adorn the walls throughout and a beautiful grand piano in the parlor. Morning breakfast was served at the dinning room table and was absolutely delicious. Our first morning's breakfast was cinnamon pancakes with lemon sauce. It might sound strange but it was wonderful. Also bacon and a fresh fruit plate with coffee or tea. The second morning was eggs benedict with sausage links and of course a fresh fruit plate and coffee or tea. I can't say enough about how special Sherry and Carolyn made us feel while we were there. We had a wonderful time just sitting around the table talking in the mornings while they fixed our breakfast. There were to other ladies staying the first night we were there and it was very nice being able to talk with them that evening and over breakfast in the morning before they left. We have found our home away from home while we will be in this area from now on.

Home away from Home

My wife and I come to the Chicago suburb area every fall for a shopping getaway from home in central Indiana. Our usual accommodations are the sterile hotels but this time we decided to try something different. We are SO GLAD we did. Sherry and Carolyn made us feel like royalty. This winter was unusual for us being we needed to be back in the Chicago area a second time and we decided to make Victorian Rose Garden our place to stay again. We greatly enjoyed having coffee in the morning at the kitchen table talking with Sherry and Carolyn about our lives and experiences while they were making breakfast for us. The main level of the house is beautifully decorated, the grand piano is wonderful (wish I knew how to play it), the great room has a wonderful homey feel to it. We stayed in Lady Teresa's room for both of our stays as it suits our needs perfectly. Sherry gave us a tour of the other rooms in the house on our first stay and I must say that the Presidential Chamber is stunning. We have decided that on our future trips to the Chicago area (usually November every year) we will make Victoria Rose Garden our place to call home. Thank you Sherry and Carolyn..

My partner and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Victorian Rose Garden. Not only did we feel welcomed but the French style was plush yet felt like home.

Special overnight Stay

I took my granddaughter for an overnight fo her birthday. She kept telling me she felt like a princess. We were both treated like we were princesses! The table was set so elegant, the hostess was always making sure we had everything we needed, and the breakfast and baked goods were marvelous. I highly recommend going, especially if you need some TLC!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Sue. We love having royalty stay at Victorian Rose Garden! We'd love to see you both for Riley's 8th birthday.

Wonderful Place to Stay.

Excellent location. Great breakfast. Warm welcome by owners. Clean, spacious room, with good shower. Superb period piece decor. Had a warm, wonderful experience. Our 2nd stay. We will have more in the future.

Two of the friendliest inn-keepers made us feel welcome and at home in our five day stay at this charming B&B. Delicious food, catering to our dietary needs, covering me with a warm blanket, we were treated like royals. What a delightful stay.

I cannot recommend higher the service, cleanliness, food, and hospitality we were treated to at this lovely B&B. We left feeling like we had made two great friends and were sorry to go. Situated just a block from downtown Algonquin, we walked to dinner. Do not miss the Italian Restaurant on the corner, fantastic! We'll be back!
