Beautifully decorated

4.8 on September 02, 2013

In fact, their decorator deserves an award! Staying in such beautiful surroundings makes it easy to relax and enjoy your time away from home. Beth has every creature-comfort you might require, including a vibrating exercise machine that you would likely have to use at your own risk! (By the way, it looks fun. I had never seen anything like it.)

A gem near Chicago!

If you are visiting Chicago or Oak Park, forget the big hotels and stay at the Harvey House. A wonderful gem tucked away in beautiful Oak Park with great rooms and fabulous service and breakfasts to die for. Nearby scenic neighborhoods and FLW houses and great local restaurants to choose from. The Metra is close enough to get to town and hardly noticeable for sound. Stayed there for several days for the Ryder Cup and enjoyed our visit immensely. We'll be back.

The Wright Stuff, As In Architecture

Spouse and I were visiting Frank Lloyd Wright sites and Harvey House was just the right place. On top of location, the facility was great - clean, up-to-date and the owner and daughter provided a great - the best - breakfast and conversation. A terrific place to visit and stay.

Stayed one night in Golden Chest Suite. Unfortunately didn't get to spend much time actually at the B&B but it was great! Very clean and the service was attentive.
