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.

Very nice place for a weekend getaway. Room was very clean and bright. Staff was friendly. That sent up treats to the rooms, since we stayed over on Valentine's. Saturday night they had hourderves and wine in the common room for everyone. Would have preferred a simple egg and bacon breakfast, rather than the fancy crepes or creme brulee french toast, but that's a personal preference. Also, had to eat breakfast, without coffee, since there didn't seem to be enough made for all the guests that they had. They did make more, but, breakfast without coffee is a bit disappointing. Overall, a very nice place to stay.

Really enjoyed comfort of Sequoia room. Nice bed linens and pillows. Comfortable seating by windows for relaxing happy hour or morning coffee

We stayed at the Brightwood Inn while visiting friends at Starved Rock. A quiet option with wintry views in December. Watching the birds at the feeder at breakfast was lovely.
