My family came to stay at the Lark Inn this summer. Beth was very quick to respond via email to help us organize our stay and was flexible and accommodating for our needs. During our visit she and Russell were sweet and helpful and fun to talk with. Breakfast was incredible, tasty and diverse, every morning. The beds were comfortable. We felt at home and happy for the several nights we remained here. We certainly plan to stay here again when we come into town.

We spent a lovely 2 nights at The Lark Inn while visiting friends nearby. Beth and Russell were wonderful hosts, very accommodating of us and our baby, and attentive to detail. Breakfast was freshly-cooked and delicious. The grounds, pool and sunroom looked nice, though we stayed inside during our December visit. We look forward to staying here again and would gladly recommend the Lark to friends.

This was our second stay, 3 nights, visiting relatives in Libertyville. We got to The Lark ~ 3 pm after a very early east coast start. Beth offered us wine and cheese to relax a bit. Next morning we awoke to find we had a flat tire on our rental car. Bummer! Beth kindly offered to drive my 82 yr old mother over to her brother's house so she could visit while daughter waited for AAA. This was above and beyond on Beth's part and most appreciated by us. Next night coming back after a day of visiting she provided tea (delicious!) and cookies as we sat and "debriefed" from the days' activities. She will see us again every time we are in the area. VERY HIGHLY recommended. Rooms are very clean and beautifully comfortable, 1st floor being ideal for Mom who can't do stairs. Thank you Beth and Russell. You are terrific.

Beth & Russell are wonderful, inviting, generous people and their inn is beautiful, comfortable and a relaxing spot to set down all your worries for a bit. We first came here for our honeymoon in September 2011. We found this B&B on this website by searching for B&B's in this area. A lot were rather expensive, and most were already booked as we were a little late deciding we were going to get away to. Then we saw this quaint little cottage, tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Libertyville and we both thought it was darling and perfect for us! We had personal issues that prevented us from staying the second night. So the Smith's were very accommodating and told us we were welcome to come another day if we wanted. So we stayed there last weekend. The food is so delicious. The grounds are beautiful. The hospitality is like no other place I've stayed at. Although we live just a few miles away, any time we get away from our kids we will probably try to stay here. I think just about everyone would love this place.
