We stayed at the Brother's B&B last weekend. When we walked in the door, we realized it was just like staying at a friend's house. There were two bedrooms and a futon; a TV in a family room, a dining room with a big table, and a fridge full of so much food for breakfast, there's no way you could eat it all. Clean, convenient, quiet -- you can't ask for much more.

From the detail on the pillows on the beds to the exquisite breakfast in the morning...everything about the stay was wonderful. The brothers even made dinner reservations for us when we had to make a side stop for an emergency and were late getting in. LOVELY!!

We had a very nice stay here. The monks were very friendly and apartment was spacious and clean. We were served eggs benedict with fruit, pastry, hashbrowns, and O.J. for breakfast and it was very good.

We stayed at the Benedictine B & B for a conference at the University of Illinois, Chicago. The location was very central. The apartment was spacious and my three girls loved having the deck and garden. The monks had a refrigerator full of food for us to make for breakfast. We even got up at 7 a.m. to attend mass and hear them chant. We will stay again.
