Brightwood Inn is 4 minutes directly south of Starved Rock State Park. Newly constructed in 1996, and nestled on 14 acres of meadow within the confines of Matthiessen State Park, the Brightwood Inn was built to resemble a vintage farmhouse complete with a verandah and rocking chairs. The Brightwood Inn will provide you with a peaceful and luxurious stay amid the beauty of nature. In the morning the dining room serves a full hot complimentary breakfast to our inn guests. Being "Farm to Fork" the meals feature fresh organic herbs and vegetables from our gardens when in season.

Thank you so much for our wonderful stay at Brightwood inn. The meals were great and the details shared about all the activities in the area were greatly appreciated. If it wasn't for the wonderful advice about Matthieson state park, we would have missed one if the most beautiful views in the area. Can't wait to come back!

A very welcoming place to just relax and unwind. This was our first experience with a B&B and we weren't disappointed. Very comfortable bed and nice size room with shower and great views of the beautiful grounds. They cook up a great breakfast that truly sets you up for exploring Matthiesen Park. We Just left, and we're already trying to figure out when we can come back!

We had a wonderful time at the Brightwood Inn. Although we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary we are not a young couple and this was a great place to visit and to enjoy each other. We stayed in the Mallory Square room which is a very bright, colorful room with a fireplace and large Queen size bed. We would definitely return to this B&B! Very close to Starved Rock but since this was "Fall Color" weekend Starved Rock was so crowded we enjoyed Mathiessen State Park which is even closer to the Brightwood Inn. Take some time, get away from it all and enjoy the Brightwood B&B!

We loved the fact that the Inn was a little of the road and VERY Quiet. The rooms were huge!
