It was a pleasure to stay at Pinehill B&B! Could not ask for a more relaxing weekend, the surrounding State Parks and the Conover Square Mall are a must see for anyone!
Thank you for your comments. Yes, there is lots to see and do, we look forward to your return.

My fiance and I were attending a wedding in the Oregon area and I decided I wanted to make this weekend feel more like a true vacation. So we booked at Pinehill and were very pleased. It felt more like a romantic weekend away than just a trip to see his family! From the minute we walked in the owners were super friendly and courteous. The room was absolutely beautiful and I loved the fireplace! If we ever find ourselves in Oregon again for some reason we will definitely be staying here again.
5 on January 05, 2016
Very relaxing. The inn is well kept. Very comfortable. Our second trip back and will go again.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were herer when all the holiday decorations were up.
5 on November 27, 2015
Our stay was relaxing and very enjoyable. The innkeepers where very friendly and informative about the Inn and surrounding area. Our room was outstanding. Very comfortable meeting all our needs. We left feeling we had been visiting old friends. We will return again soon in the future.
Thank you for your kind words and selecting Pinehill. We look forward to your return and sharing more house history at breakfast.
5 on November 13, 2015
Charming place with great owners! Can't wait to return.
Thank you! We were just starting with the holiday decorations and hope you can return when you can see them all up.

From booking the room, to setting our next visit there... to EVERYTHING in between... AMAZING! My wife and I wanted to get away for the first time in a long time and found this gem of a place in a small Illinois town. The room was clean and comfortable. The town has quite a few things to visit... and the shopping square was a huge hit! It was a transformative experience. So impactful that we have decided to make it an annual trip. Ken & Chris are GREAT! They even made accommodations for our desire to stay gluten free. I'm not exactly sure that we can wait until next year to return! Pepe & Floy Cabrera

It's a beautiful house. We weren't there long enough to appreciate it all. Very nice folks & amenities. Inn is located in a small mid-west town on the Rock River that surprisingly has big-time artist connections, such as Alma Mater sculptor Lorado Taft. Chris was as accommodating & friendly as you wanted.
Thank you for your kind comments, we hope you have the opportunity to return.
5 on October 15, 2015
My wife and I stayed here for our 3rd anniversary. These folks run a first rate BB. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend them to anyone staying in the Oregon area. Great property, great hospitality, great amenities, and great cooking. Thank you for having us. You made our trip one to remember!
Happy anniversary! Great conversations at breakfast so we look forward to your return.
5 on September 20, 2015
The building is spectacular! The rooms are so nicely decorated. Our family took over the whole place for my wedding and they were so awesome helping us get situated and everything. The fridge was always stocked with juice and water and muffins and fruit and bagel at breakfast were great. So glad we chose pinehill!!
It was an amazing time for us as well as you and your family were getting ready for the wedding. Come back soon!
5 on September 04, 2015
This place is truly fabulous. Ambience and amenities exceed even high expectations. Full breakfast option is amazing and scrumptious. Observed summer wildlife included a fawn and a flitting hummingbird.
Thank you,we love our guests and want everyone to enjoy rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Delightful! There simply were no negatives.
5 on June 22, 2015
It was our second stay at Pinehill Inn and we were not disappointed. Chris did everything she could to insure we had a wonderful stay. We especially noticed Chris' keen eye for the smallest detail, not to mention the wonderful hospitality and good food. We shall return ! Chuck & Di

For some reason the scoring grid would not let me check Outstanding for all five categories, so even though it shows only 4's, my rating is all 5's!!! We have stayed at Pinehill twice now and plan to continue. My husband was adamant about never staying in a Bed and Breakfast. At Pinehill, you get the charm of a lovely B&B with the privacy of a hotel with private bath. The Owners are extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms are lovely and the property is just what is needed for a weekend getaway. The optional full-service breakfast is something not to be missed, even though the pantry is available 24/7 with plenty to satisfy you for breakfast or snacks all-day. Pinehill is our place!
4.4 on May 15, 2015
We were in town for my sister's wedding. It was a lovely place with very nice owners. It was a much needed escape on a very busy weekend.
We love hosting wedding guests and hearing about the wedding. Thank you for your comments.
5 on May 12, 2015
Wonderful property with very nice hosts. Details in the decorating and flow of the house amazing. Lovely rooms. Large porches to sit. Close to many things to do. Would go there again!
4.8 on May 08, 2015
We enjoyed our stay so much. Chris is charismatic and charming and an excellent cook! The house is beautiful, well kept and SO clean. We felt welcomed and it was so peaceful there. The common areas are nicely decorated and coming down the staircase kind of makes you feel like you're in "Gone With the Wind." The breakfast was really good and I love that it's at a reasonable 9 a.m. Wish we could have stayed longer! It makes us want to move up north.
Thank you for taking the time to share your visit. Yes, they really knew how to make a staircase the focal point of an entry back in the 1870s. We look forward to your return.
5 on April 16, 2015
The Pinehill Inn is the perfect B&B stay! The restored property and porches are lovely and the amenities were pleasing. My husband and I will make a special trip to enjoy this B&B retreat again. Thank you!
Thank you for your comments. We were glad the weather turned warm and you could enjoy sitting out on the porch. We look forward to your return.
4.8 on April 14, 2015
This 1874 brick mansion is beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters on the first floor, and we were very pleased with it. Chris met us at the door to welcome us and show us around the inn. The Butler's Pantry serves as the self-serve kitchen for guests who opt for the continental breakfast, or who might want a snack 24 hours a day. A large library of movies on DVD is available at no charge. We loved the casual informality of the inn, and we hope to return.
Thank you for your comments, we look forward to hosting you again.
5 on February 21, 2015
from the minute we knocked on the door..we felt at home..Chris is a sweetheart and a Mother away from home type..and an excellent chef as well ;) the place itself is truly amazing in detail and comfort..looking forward to another stay soon..sincerely Bob and Kandice
Bob & Kandice, thank you so much for your kind words and great review. Both Ken & I look forward to your return.

Very good cook. Relaxing atmosphere. Fantastic rooms. Well worth it!
5 on January 03, 2015
Our experience at pinehill inn was above and beyond! It's so great to stay at an amazing location, be treated wonderfully, and get to eat some fantastic food. We stayed for our birthdays and were not let down in the slightest!
5 on December 26, 2014
Great time. Great old mansion. Clean. Chris. & Ken are great, but you don 'to see much of Ken. The whole mansion was decorated for the Christmas holiday! Had our own bathroom and my wife used the whirlpool tub to unwind at the end of the end of the day.Even fired up the fireplace in our room- it is December after all. Chris was so friendly and prepared an awsome breakfast !! The use of the all night pantry was great for us for late night snack, tea, coffee and a couple home baked cookies. We love Pine Hill !
5 on December 19, 2014
We have been back to The Pine Hill Inn many times and are always blown away by the beauty and how comfortable we always are. Ken and Chris are the greatest. Christmas is a must see destination. The way things used to be...the good things that is.
Thanks guys, we had a great time during your visit, look forward to seeing you again soon.
4.6 on December 03, 2014
Beautiful place to stay and we arrived shortly before a Christmas so got to enjoy the wonderful decorations. Would definitely like to go back.
Thank you for your review, we are glad you were able to be here while we have all the decorations up. We look forward to your return
5 on November 30, 2014
We have stayed at the pine hill twice in the past few years. Chris and Ken were very accommodating to say the least. The breakfasts were excellent and filling. The hospitality was superb. We stayed in the captains room each time and it was awesome. Our plans are to spend a Christmas out there. We hear the decorations are unbelievable. Thanks. Paul and Jan
Paul & Jan, thank you for the kind words, we look forward to your next visit while we have all the decorations out.
5 on November 05, 2014
We enjoyed speaking with the hosts to learn more about the area. The house is beautiful! We loved learning of the history of the house. My first stay at a bed and breakfast! It was nice to grab a quick bite to eat in the morning and get on our way without bothering anyone.
Thank you for your kind words. We love hosting "first timers" and hope you will enjoy staying at B&Bs in the future as well.
5 on October 09, 2014
My husband and I stay at The Pinehill Inn when we travel to his hometown of Oregon, IL. The rooms are so well done, very peaceful; like going back in time. If you've not stayed here, you should certainly check it out. Love the breakfast and Chris always has something special like her homemade cookies in the fully stocked kitchen area. Thanks again to Chris and Ken for making another trip home so relaxing. SW Perdido Key, FL
5 on September 13, 2014
We arrived to a warm welcome and a beautifully appointed home and room. Comfortable beds. Spotless home and room. Our hostess not only served us a delicious breakfast, but also stayed and chatted with us about the house, the town, etc. Even got a hug when we left. A delightful stay!!
5 on September 10, 2014
Our stay was outstanding! Our hostess, Chris, was wonderful to visit with and made us feel right at home. She is also an amazing chef with a huge and delicious breakfast! I appreciated the 24 hour snack and beverage station with many choices! Our room was very clean and the entire home was spotless! Not a speck of dust anywhere (how do they do it?) Our beds were comfortable, too. I look forward to staying at Pine Hill again in the future.
4.4 on September 10, 2014
Stayed here for a wedding in the area. They offer a continental breakfast rate and a last minute booking rate which are great values and rival standard chain hotels. Snacks are available all day and the side porch and lawn are lovely places to enjoy them. Would certainly recommend Pinehill Inn to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the area.
5 on September 10, 2014
We celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary at Pinehill, also the site of our wedding. Just as in the past, we had a great weekend! Everything was beyond expectations and we'll be back again! A big thanks to Chris and Ken!!!
4.8 on August 25, 2014
Great place! Very clean and cozy.
5 on August 18, 2014
An elegant mansion in a quiet setting. Private rooms and baths. Beautiful area, great antique stores, fine restaurants. This is one of our favorite places to stay. You can go sight seeing or sit on the beautiful veranda and read or share a bottle of wine.
5 on August 12, 2014
Third stay at Pine Hill. Great place for a quick getaway. All the comforts of home in a beautiful old home.
5 on July 27, 2014
This is a beautiful place to stay in for rest & relaxation for any occasion. It was recommended by our daughter and husband who had stayed there two years ago. The owners were super and very accommodating to our needs. The home is beautiful and the attention to all of the the decorating details in the home make it more special.
5 on July 13, 2014
Pinehill Inn is an exquisite experience - the perfect refuge from the hectic world. Each historic bedroom is beautifully appointed and every detail for the weary traveler is attended to by Chris and Ken. Relax on the screened porch or sip a favorite beverage on either veranda while enjoying the beautiful, peaceful grounds. Enjoy a continental breakfast of your choice or delight in the scrumptious breakfasts that will fill your body and warm your spirit. Chris and Ken will make sure your stay in their gorgeous inn far exceeds your expectations. By the end of your stay you will feel that Pinehill is your home away from home.
4.6 on June 28, 2014
We had a great time at Pinehill Inn. Very clean and relaxing. We will be back for sure.
5 on June 23, 2014
I found Pinehill Inn on the Internet when my husband and I were planning our vacation. The photos don't do it justice. It's just beautiful. The room was large and very roomy and comfortable. Chris couldn't have been nicer; she's a great chef too. We will definitely stay with Chris and Ken again when we are in the area. Don't pass this jewel of the Midwest up, you won't regret it.
5 on June 04, 2014
Incredible place to stay! The owners went above and beyond to make our stay a very good experience. The rooms were beautiful and romantic. Their breakfast was homemade and delicious. We will definitely be going back!
4.8 on May 07, 2014
Outstanding place and we defiantly will recommend for our friends and we will came back.
5 on April 22, 2014
Great service, wonderful full breakfast, my stay was so relaxing!
4.8 on April 21, 2014
Lovely stay and gracious environment ~ X-mas decor added charm and atmosphere. Guests had a ball! Superb!
4.6 on February 19, 2014
This was the our first B&B experience where no one wanted breakfast to end. Great food and good conversation. We would probably still be talking if we had not needed to check out. The room was great as was Chris who we found owned a home in our hometown. Small world. We definitely will make Pinehill a frequent stop as it is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in.
5 on January 22, 2014
This home is an absolute gem and Chris and Ken take wonderful care of it and make every stay a treat!
5 on November 15, 2013
VERY IMPRESSED WITH FIRST BB EXPERIENCE
5 on November 10, 2013
Beautiful Inn, excellent service, great room. Enjoyed our 26th wedding anniversary at the Inn.
5 on November 06, 2013
The bed in the Rose Room was so comfortable I did not want to get out of it first thing Saturday morning to head back to my business meeting. Most quiet, comfortable night of sleep I have had in years!
4.0 on October 28, 2013
The mansion is exquisite! Very quaint and elegant at the same time. You will find this B&B well worth the money and worth the visit to the Oregon area. The hostess, Chris was very nice, knowledgeable and a great cook. We loved the full course breakfast made to order. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters (key to this room is to keep the bathroom room closed because the radiated heat works so well. You will wake up to a nicely heated bathroom, yet a cool bedroom- just the way we liked it). The fireplace in the rooms are a nice touch as we burned the fireplace log. I don't know of any other B&B that allows a real fire in the room. The grounds are beautiful and need to be seen with each season. We are planning to visit PineHill Inn in the winter hopefully under 2 feet of snow! The pines will be beautiful loaded with snow. On the wall at Pinehill Inn is a saying.."Arrive as guests and leave as friends," this is so true. Pleasantly surprised and happy to give a great review. Thanks Chris and Ken, for creating a great getaway for us. We will return soon.
4.6 on October 25, 2013
We were looking for a nearby B&B to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I had never heard of Oregon, IL or Pinehill Inn, but we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. I'm so glad we did!!! The house is gorgeous and so well kept. We stayed in the Somerset room and it was so clean and cozy. The private bath with jacuzzi tub is wonderful as well. We toured the local state parks, got a great dinner recommendation from Ken, and retired back to our room with some dessert straight from the guest's kitchen at the inn. I enjoyed a long soak in the tub and we had a fire in our room that night. It was just the relaxing evening that we needed. Breakfast the next morning was simple, but delicious! And we enjoyed hearing more of the history of the house and area from Chris while we dined. I hope to return! Would highly recommend.
5 on October 16, 2013
Pine Hill is a beautiful home. It is tucked away and private. We made last minute plans to stay there because of a wedding. I'm so glad we did! Owners are very accomdating, and great cooks :). Would definately go there again...soon!!!
5 on October 09, 2013
Great time and what a beautiful Inn. The owners go above and beyond to make a terrific stay. Wonderful recommendation for restaurants and sites.
5 on September 28, 2013
Our stay at the Pinehill Inn was the first bed and breakfast experience we had and we were thoroughly satisfied. The Bonaparte Room had great decor and amenities. Breakfast was delicious and well presented. Overall, it was a relaxing getaway. We are looking forward to future b&b stays, and another visit to Pinehill.
4.8 on September 26, 2013
My husband and I just stayed at Pinehill for the 5the time. We love it there. Chris and Ken are very hospitable, friendly and willing to go above and beyond for their guests. The price could be cheaper yet the last minute special is awesome. We will go back any time we can.
4.2 on September 22, 2013
The Inn Keepers are very friendly. Stayed here before and will stay again sometime. Rooms are very clean. A quiet place to relax.
4.6 on September 15, 2013
We had a very nice weekend stay at the Pinehill Inn. The owners are very knowledgeable about the history of the house as well as places to visit in town. We highly recommend staying at the Pinehill Inn
5 on September 05, 2013
We came back to Pinehill for our second stay - such a gracious, peaceful, elegant home. Ken and Chris are great hosts - this feels like home!
4.4 on September 05, 2013
Loved my room and my bed. Very relaxing stay. I loved the complementary food and breakfast was delightful.
4.4 on September 03, 2013
One night stay - loved it. Beautiful home, chess in parlor, music on main floor was appreciated, comfy beds,great butler pantry stocked with goodies. Breakfast (wonderful) - excellent and a lot - lovely presentation.
5 on September 03, 2013
You feel like your in 1874 but in the comfort of modern day. Chris and Ken are fantastic hosts. We will be back.
5 on August 25, 2013
We had a great time here as we always do!
4.4 on August 25, 2013
Perfect for a couple of days away from the chaos of everyday life. The Pinehill Inn is a gem with the Owners having an outstanding eye for detail making the stay top-notch.
5 on August 20, 2013
For a first B&B visit, we think we found the best one of all choices. This place is so beautiful and well kept like stepping back in time. The house is very well built and so comfortable. The owners know what they are doing and obviously want guests to be happy.
5 on August 19, 2013
What a lovely stay we had at Pinehill Inn - peaceful, relaxing and educational. Chris and Ken couldnt have been better hosts. Can't wait to go back.
4.6 on August 15, 2013
In a small town rich in public/civic amenities.
5 on August 14, 2013
Most gracious hosts. Fabulous breathtaking rooms, delicious homemade food, exceptional wine. Host's made you feel as if you were at home, so kind and helpful. Will definitely stay again.
5 on August 09, 2013
The Pinehill Inn was wonderful. It was a great weekend getaway. We will definitely be back in the near future. A wonderful old home with warmth and character.
4.0 on August 07, 2013
Excellent rooms and common areas. We loved the screened porch. We will go back.
3.4 on July 19, 2013
The lodging was delightful and had the typical old world charm expected in a B&B. However, the bathroom needs updating. The 1980's jacuzzi was unappealing and extremely hazardous in which to shower. The old world bed was comfy and inviting, but due to the height was a challenge to get up and into. A simple step stool common to old beds would have been a welcome convenience. The "help yourself" pantry was a fun and convenient feature, however, the baked goods need to be changed more frequently. In general it was a pleasure to stay at the Pinehill.
3.6 on July 18, 2013
Nice stay at this very well kept B&B. Area is beautiful...many state parks and lots of recreation.
5 on June 24, 2013
Absolutely incredible experience. It was like coming home and Ken and Chris took such good care of me. One of the best places I have ever stayed in the country. Outstanding room, spotless environment and stellar service. Thank
5 on June 12, 2013
Me and my husband came to a bed and breakfast for the first time. At first, I was a little leery, not knowing what to expect, but as we walked in, we were warmly welcomed. The place was immaculately cozy and offered several perks like a snack room, a fire place and a whirlpool tub and it was quite wonderful. It made me want to come back.
3.8 on May 15, 2013
As always a beautiful weekend at Pinehill Inn! PinehHill is a lovely B&B with hospitable owners and a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. A restful weekend very much needed in this hectic time. I would recommend to any couple that needs a little R&R.
5 on May 10, 2013
We stayed at the Pinehill Inn the weekend of April 13, and we loved every minute of it. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Chris and Ken are wonderful hosts, and they pay attention to the details. The Inn is comfortable, and the rooms have many interesting furnishings. We enjoyed browsing through the books and movies they have made available. As it was cool outside when we visited, we made use of the fireplace in our bedroom. Our bed was comfortable, and our bathroom had a two-person jacuzzi tube. The food and housekeeping at Pinehill are impeccable! This is a place you must visit if you want a relaxing, peaceful time.
4.4 on May 08, 2013
Beautiful and relaxing . A wonderful place to spend a few days.
4.8 on May 08, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the Pinehill Inn. The atmosphere was very relaxing, the staff was warm and friendly, and the Inn had wonderful character. Thank you!
5 on April 25, 2013
Beautiful house, cozy bedroom, incredible breakfast, great hosts. Best b&b ever.
4.4 on April 01, 2013
Beautiful bed and breakfast! Highly recommended. Really comfortable bed, really relaxing atmosphere. I only wish the bathtub in the Bonaparte room had been bigger!
5 on March 20, 2013
The rooms were beautifully appointed with lovely decorative touches. We stayed in the Bonaparte room which had pictures of Napoleon, a unique canopy bed, a marble fireplace and a jetted tub. The rooms were very quiet even though all of the rooms were booked. The inn keepers were very friendly and offered great suggestions on eating and places to explore. Loved this place and look forward to returning when the weather improves.
4.8 on March 16, 2013
I loved the continental breakfast option. I've never stayed at a B&B that offered this. My room, while lovely and cozy, could have used a "chushy" chair, rather than 2 hard-backed, desk-type chairs, for reading. While it was unusual to have the shower separated from the rest of the br (although both were w/i the same room), it added to the character.
4.6 on March 13, 2013
The little touches made all the difference! Woke at 3 a.m. and was thirsty so went to the fully stocked butlers pantry and had a fresh brewed cup of tea and a homemade muffin. Classical music wafts through the halls, but is not heard in the room, where we could play what we wanted on the room Bose. Sat in the provided robe next to our real fireplace after using the whirlpool tub. Padded down to breakfast in my stocking feet and was made to feel very at home. Of course the rooms are just beautiful and so very comfy. I can't even say that they attended to our requests, because everything was provided perfectly so there was no need to request anything! Three parks in the area, great food, fine people and a lovely lovely inn! Can't wait to have the opportunity to go back!!!
5 on February 20, 2013
We always enjoy our stay & so quiet for a great nights sleep.
4.4 on February 13, 2013
Very nice house, great owner/operators and neat surroundings.
5 on December 24, 2012
Bill and I had our best Christmas together at the Pinehill Inn. EVER! Chris has not only become a wonderful friend but the finest innkeeper on the planet. Marvelous.
5 on November 18, 2012
Warm and welcoming, We felt we were "home" in this elegant, cozy setting. Ken greeted us with a bright smile, kindly checked us in, & showed us the mansion's amenities. Our room, the Somerset, was even better than we imagined. The Inn embraces Victorian style with subtle touches of modern day technology. Not sure where to go or what's around town? Innkeepers Ken and Chris are well versed in the area from dining to shopping to history. Take them up on their recommendations, and you will enhance your stay even more! Ken and Chris Williams are the embodiment of gracious hospitality!
4.6 on November 03, 2012
We made a last minute reservation. We were welcomed very heartlily, shown around the house and the room, given advise on diner possibilities. We spent some time in the very cosy common room before diner. Room was fine. Next morning we had a fantastic breakfast with nice conversation with the owners. Sorry we could only stay one night as we had to fly out to Europe. Thank you to make our stay memorable.
4.8 on October 25, 2012
Wonderful time, great hosts, top-notch food, and without question the best B&B we have ever visited.
5 on October 22, 2012
We stayed here while visiting the Nachusa Grasslands - we stay in B&Bs a lot and were interested in the history of this home so we planned our trip to stay here. We stayed in the Rose Room (which has been updated from many of the photos online) and my brother and his wife stayed in the Pine Room. We were all really impressed. The Rose Room was beautiful, and after dinner we came back and all sat by the fireplace in our room. The bed was phenomenal - awesome, sofft bedding and super comfy king mattress. Breakfast was ridiculous - fruit topped with carmel, blueberry pancakes, and apple pie. The kitchen is also stocked with pastries, coffee & tea, 24 hours a day. The welcome and hospitality was wonderful, and the house was impecable. We've stayed in many B&Bs over the years and this really was the best we've stayed at, I hope we get a chance to stay there again.
4.2 on October 10, 2012
My husband & I stayed at the Pinehill Inn for our honeymoon & the place is beautiful! We stayed in the Pine rom & it was a little small but still had plenty of charm. The owners were very nice & helpful as well. We did not dine there so I can't comment on the food (they made me rate it) but they had lots of options for the continental breakfast. We would definatly stay there again & would recommend it to others.
5 on October 03, 2012
This was our first visit to the Pinehill Inn in Oregon, IL, and we were celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. The owners/hosts, Ken & Chris Williams, welcomed us in like old friends and made us feel right at home. Always friendly, helpful, and willing to engage in conversation. The hotel is charming, quaint, clean, well-decorated, and spacious. The food is delicious. The grounds surround you with nature, and the complimentary butler's pantry and DVD collection is a bonus.
5 on September 23, 2012
We stayed at the Pinehill the night of our honeymoon and the following night. Our hosts treated us like a king and queen! We will be back for our anniversary!
5 on September 19, 2012
We had an amazing breakfast, and stayed in a cozy, elegant and beautiful room! A very lovely time, and a beautiful location. We really felt at home and were treated like old friends. We did not have the time to watch any movies, but the collection of DVDs and videos was outstanding. Highly recommended.
5 on September 11, 2012
Pinehill Inn is the perfect place for a weekend getaway from Chicago. The owners are completely dedicated to making your stay relaxing. The historic inn is beautiful and the gourmet breakfast on silver & china was delicious!
5 on September 10, 2012
Thank you so much for making the kid's getaway so very special! They cannot say enough about the house, the outstanding breakfast both days, the setting.....everything - Dana says it's been her best week ever! We have never gotten her a birthday present so wonderful - and it's all thanks to Pinehill Inn! Margie Krieger
4.6 on September 10, 2012
This was a great bed & breakfast. The owners were very nice. They showed everything such as the snack room, how the coffee machines worked, your room, etc. It was very clean and you couldn't hear any noises from your room. Was great and would stay again!
5 on September 05, 2012
This was our second stay at the Pinehill Inn and it was another superb experience! Jeff & Marianne
5 on August 14, 2012
Located in my hometown. Went back for a visit and could not believe the quality and comfort of Pinehill. Absolutely charming and the owners made everyone feel very comfortable and welcome. If I go back again, I will definitely stay at PineHill.
4.4 on July 16, 2012
The Pinehill Inn is a very nice place. I would definitely go back. The owners are very friendly and the Inn is very clean and comfortable. I stayed here on business, but would consider going back just for fun! I recommended it to everyone else in my training class!
4.8 on July 16, 2012
This was our second stay at Pinehill Inn but our first with the new owners. They have done a beautiful job in making Pinehill Inn absolutely perfect in every way. Our room was lovely and comfortable. Everything you need is available, including Wi-Fi, iPad, TV, radio and on and on. The butler's pantry is always stocked with snacks, drinks of every kind, and delicious baked goods. The breakfast was truly outstanding and our conversation with the owner was nice as well. The grounds are beautifully maintained and sitting on the porch looking out at the pine trees brought back memories of growing up in the Mt. Morris/Oregon area. When my wife and come back for my next high school reunion, we will be staying at the Pinehill Inn again.

Pinehill Inn more than exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Somerset Room for 2 nights in June 2012 and the room was spacious, beautiful, and impeccably clean. Our hosts were welcoming and the breakfasts generous in addition to the beverages and snacks available in the self-serve area. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch as well as the easy access to the town and all the state parks and forest.
5 on May 25, 2012
Magnificent house and grounds maintained by friendly, helpful owners who made our stay perfect! The rooms were beautifully furnished and were larger than expected. The breakfasts were culinary delights and the "snack" area overflowed with 24-hour treats (including homemade goodies). The owners did not scrimp on anything, making us feel quite pampered in a luxurious setting. We recommended it to our family in the area and recommend it to anyone traveling to Illinois.

Pinehill Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very clean, beds are very comfortable and the owners have given every attention to detail to make their guests enjoy their stay. Snacks were always available and the full breakfast was very good! It is a special place -- the grounds are beautiful and well cared for. The town of Oregon is quaint and the people are very friendly. This is a special place and we will return soon to enjoy this little piece of heaven.

We are planning a family reunion/business meeting in July 2012 at Pinehill Inn and decided to do a little preview visit to make sure we picked a good place for it. Well, WOW!!!! it is just spectacular in every aspect. I have never been to a place that is this detail-oriented. They haven't missed anything in making their bed and breakfast perfect in every way. This home and grounds are extremely nice, clean and comfortable. They have a stocked kitchen area where guests can help themselves to small meals, great drinks and excellent treats. They have fireplaces in the guest rooms that work. They give you a log to burn in the fireplace in your room. They have a mattress topper on the bed that makes it absolutely luscious to sleep. It is very quiet and peaceful yet has all the activities you might expect from a B&B like televisions with cable, DVDs, books to read, games to play, wireless connection, etc. They offer a full breakfast which is delicious and very filling. We can't wait to return in July for our family reunion. I would recommend Pinehill B&B, in Oregon, IL to anyone, anyday of the week. The owners, Ken and Chris couldn't be better hosts. They give great advice on what to do in the area and where are the best places to eat. BTW, there are really great places to eat and shop in and around Oregon, IL.

Beautifully decorated, especially around Christmas!! Great atmosphere, like a home away from home. Great place to get-away for a day or two. Terrific full breakfast!! It doesnt get much better than this. :)

We are researching the possibility of opening a B&B in the southwest. We decided to attend the B&B College at Pinehill Inn this past weekend and stay for two nights. Ken and Chris did a great job presenting material needed to make an informed decision when purchasing a B&B. They were very open and candid about the pros and cons of running a B&B and we saw first hand just how much personal attention and care Ken and Chris put into the Inn and their guests. Our room was great. Clean, quiet and very comfortable. The meals were tasty and above and beyond what we would make at home. A great class, a great stay, a great Inn. Thanks, Ken and Chris!
3.4 on November 06, 2011
We had plenty of rest and relaxation in a beautiful and unexpectedly fun area of Illinois. We loved the open pantry for snacks and drinks. The breakfasts were delicious, complete and filling, but we would have liked them a bit more "special" - something we may not expect or prepare for ourselves at home. All in all, a very nice place to stay.
4.0 on November 01, 2011
Arrived after 9PM. very pleasant welcome from the owner with suggestion for a quick meal. Bright and comfortable room, the bath in the Rose Room is small but functional. Wonderful full breakfast the next morning with enjoyable stories as to the history of the property. A definite return visit.
4.6 on October 29, 2011
This was my first ( definitly not last) B&B stay! I was wrong to worry about comfort, privacy, or ammendities! More than comfortable with lots of the touches I'd only get in the finiest hotels! The Continental breakfast had more to choose from than my home! The full breakfast looked yummy...if only we had the time! Can't wait to come again!
4.6 on October 28, 2011
A delayed departure from Chicago instigated a last minute surf of the net to find a B&B for the night on our way home. The Pinehill Inn looked lovely and was well situated for us geographically. The first impression as we drove-up in the twilight was impressive; the house is stunningly beautiful from the street. Once inside we knew we had found a jewel. The house and our room were spacious, beautifully furnished and clean. Our stay may have been last minute but it was first-rate and we plan to return for a longer visit to the Pinehill Inn.
4.4 on October 26, 2011
Historic property, terrific hosts, great area to explore. My wife and I highly recommend Pinehill for a weekend getaway. We hiked the trails at White Pines State Park, took in some local history (Stone Castle, Laredo Taft art colony, the many local sculptures), and just enjoyed the natural beauty of the area. Great local dining options for dinner, particularly the restaurant at White Pines State Park and the local steakhouse by the steamboat dock. We've stayed at more than a few B&B's, and this is a good one -- our new favorite.

My husband and I spent our first night as husband and wife at the Pinehill Inn. It was so close to where we got married (white pines wedding chapel) and so incredibly beautiful! We had a great night, and woke up to an amazing breaky! Banana Pecan Waffels, Bacon, fruit parfait, juice, coffee...and other things. Along with breakfast we could download our favorite newpaper on to and IPad 2 to read. They also made it very easy to go down to the guest kitchen (which was fully stocked) to get a midnight snack. This place is truely amazing!!!
3.6 on October 24, 2011
This was cozy, comfortable and very clean. The dining was okay, nothing to write home about. We wish the coffee served at the breakfast was a full caffeine instead of a 50/50 blend of caffeine/decaffine.
5 on October 23, 2011
We can not say enough about this home and owners Ken and Chris. We have been to many B & B's, but have never experienced the calm and lovely atmosphere. We will definetly return to the Pinehill Inn.
5 on October 20, 2011
Chris and Ken are wonderful caretakers of this beautiful historic home. We love feeling like we have taken a step back in time. The rooms are beautiful, Chris is a wonderful cook and they are both very welcoming.
5 on October 19, 2011
We came back for our 5th anniversary after spending our wedding night at the Pinehill. We had the same room and this time got to enjoy the full breakfast option. We loved our visit and may return for our 10th anniversary. Sign up for the full breakfast option instead of continental. Thanks Ken and Chris!
5 on October 07, 2011
Getting to Oregon, Illinois, the town my husband and his sister were born has been a long time objective. Staying at Pinehill Inn was an added bonus. We live in Arizona, so the highlight was at breakfast when Chris told us about her family trip when they hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon ... a small world ... we shared with her our original Song of the Grand Canyon we wrote & recorded which can be heard at www.PattyParker.com Ken & Chris run one of the best B&B's we've stayed at, and we've been to quite a few so, if you visit Pinehill Inn, and I hope you do, tell Chris you want to hear the song by Oregon, Illinois's native son Frank Fara ! Thank you for a memorable visit, Patty Parker & Frank Fara

Pinehill Inn is a wonderfully kept, remarkable historic home in Oregon IL; a beautiful and peaceful town along the rock river with many nearby amenities. We truly enjoyed the at home atmosphere and relaxation during our stay. Thank you Ken and Chris!
4.2 on September 22, 2011
We stayed in the Rose Room and was delighted with the room. It was spacious, very clean, decorated beautifully and the bed was extremely confortable. The bathroom was small, but we loved the room. We were in Oregon, Illinois, on business and then spent our extra time seeing the countryside. The innkeepers were very nice and helpful with any questions we had about the area and the inn. We will definately be back for a longer stay next time. Steve & Laura
4.6 on September 10, 2011
I have had an opportunity to stay at the Pinehill Inn for the past two years. Each time I was impressed with the hospitality and generous availabilty of good coffe and good food. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy company of family,(who also stayed there with us). I would recommend this B&B to everyone. It is also an official historical inn. We will be back.
5 on September 07, 2011
This was our first time staying at a B&B and the experience was wonderful. The property was beautiful and very well maintained. Ken and Chris were very helpful, informative and pleasant. We were in town for a wedding and they actually added to the experience we had with helpful suggestions about what to do to fill the amount of time we had. Everything from the reservations, to the welcome to the check out was effortless. Definitely an outstanding first, but not last, Pinehill B&B experience!
4.8 on September 06, 2011
The Pinehill Inn was absolutely wonderful in so many ways. The inn itself was charming and welcoming as were the rooms. The many amenities served to make the stay extra enjoyable. They included a pantry full of snacks and drinks, refrigerators and TVs with VCR/DVD players in every room, plus a large selection of movies to choose from. Guests were also welcome to use the living room, which included a large selection of games, a screened-in side porch, and a large open front porch. Last but not least, the owners were extremely accommodating and delightful to visit with.
4.2 on August 20, 2011
Very pleasant place to stay. Peaceful and very well maintained with some beautiful features. Probably the best accommodation in Oregon, Illinois.
5 on August 17, 2011
This is the first B&B my boyfriend and I have ever stayed at, and I have a feeling it will be hard to top! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and the 24-hour, well stocked guest kitchen is a wonderful idea. Pinehill has all the elegance of an old mansion with the comfort and cleanliness of an upscale hotel.
5 on August 14, 2011
The perfect get-a-way! Although we were only two hours from home the Pinehill B&B provided an amazing 5 star retreat experience. Chris & Ken made us feel like welcomed, our room was beautiful, breakfast was so yummy (I dare you to eat only one of Chris's scones). It was the perfect setting to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We can't wait to go back. Thanks guys for being so thoughtful and attentive to our many questions about the history of the Pinehill Inn etc...
5 on August 11, 2011
A wonderful and peaceful Place. Beautiful appointed rooms, very spacious and airy and wonderful beds. The Inkeeper is a lovely, talanted person who keeps everything imaculately clean and beautiful. the grounds are beautiful and the also has a huge movie and book library... Lots of History here as well, Loved our Stay.
5 on August 03, 2011
The inn is simply stunning! Clean, "homey." The food was wonderful! The 24/7 guest kitchen was so convenient. But mostly the innkeepers, Chris & Ken, were the best!
5 on August 02, 2011
Pinehill B&B was the perfect getaway from busy city life. We loved our room, the food and Chris and Ken made our stay very enjoyable. We highly recommend the Pinehill B&B.
5 on July 30, 2011
This was the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at. It was beautiful, very clean, very comfortable and well maintained. The hosts were lovely people and worked very hard to make our stay enjoyable. They were very organized, provided everything we could have possibly needed or wanted, and made excellent breakfasts for us. It was a very memorable weekend!
4.6 on July 17, 2011
A beautiful historic house, tastefully decorated, hostpitable hosts, superb breakfast and many other extras make this the best B&B we have ever experienced. Highly recommended!
5 on July 13, 2011
We just stayed at Pinehill Inn to celebrate our anniversary. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone who is looking for a getaway at a great B & B. The innkeepers have really thought of just about anything you would need. The rooms are beautiful and clean. They have added extra touches to make your stay complete. The breakfasts were very good and generous. I'm looking forward to going back.
4.2 on July 05, 2011
When someone cancelled last minute, the owner graciously allowed us to upgrade without charging extra. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were even perfect. The owner gave us a tour when we arrived and was very nice and welcoming. The negative was the breakfast. The ad said they had things such as stuffed french toast and eggs benedict--two of my favorites. While the service was excellent, the breakfast was overcooked with tasteless eggs and tasteless hashbrowns. The fruit was nice, the coffee and milk kept coming. But we really look forward to a B & B doing a nice unique breakfast. We were disappointed. We will stay there again, but we will do the continental breakfast that is also available.
4.8 on June 30, 2011
what can you say about elegance in mere words ? HIGHLY recommend this inn for anything that mandates a touch of class, elegance, & AWESOME bacon for breakfast (Chris remembers me now !). one word of advice for those of you that choose your event here...."skeeter repellant" is a must. surrounded by beautiful trees where they do come out for an afternoon snack ! best regards, Uncle Denny.
4.8 on June 20, 2011
We LOVED our stay at Pinehill Inn. The owners are fabulous, the rooms are so comfortable and the service is outstanding. We chose the continental breakfast plan and it fit perfectly with our active weekend schedule. Next time we go we want to try the full breakfast, especially Egg's Christine!!
4.8 on June 08, 2011
My stay at the Pinehill inn was a wonderful experience. The room i had was so delightful. The bed was super comfortable. Chris and Ken are very welcoming and there to answer any questions. The Breakfasts are absolutely amazing and huge!! You won't need lunch. I enrolled in Pinehill's B&B college for the weekend. I learned so much. I am very interested in starting my own B&B and the college helped me to learn the ins and outs of all aspects of the B&B from how to evaluate a property to running the property to keeping financial records. It was really worth my time. I feel very confident now as I look to start my own B&B.
5 on June 04, 2011
My sister and I shared a room and my father was across the hall in the back of the house. It was perfect. The owner was helpful in local information, the house was quiet and restful, and the rooms were spotless and comfy. The best B&B I've ever stayed in.

I was so impressed with Pinehill Inn. I have stayed at B & Bs many times, both in the U.S. and abroad, and Pinehill was one of the best. It was clear that the owners had given a lot of thought and care into all the details that would make our stay as comfortable and wonderful as possible. The decor is delightful and I loved the snack area that they had set up for our convenience. I loved it!
4.8 on May 31, 2011
Last minute get away for us and glad we went to Pinehill Inn. Chris is so nice and our room was beautiful. The recommendation for dinner turned out to be a wonderful place. We would definitely stay there again and have already passed on their information to friends.
3.8 on May 29, 2011
We had a great memorial day weekend with our gracious hosts. The room was wonderful and the area has a lot of great walks and parks to enjoy! We recommend this area, and B&B, to anyone.
4.2 on May 29, 2011
The weather was unusually cold and dreary so we spent most of our time inside our rooms and the parlor. It was perfect for tea and conversation which is what we all were after. We had the added pleasure of a small theatrical performance in the parlor.
5 on May 14, 2011
Our group of ladies have been traveling and staying in B&Bs for over 25 years and this one is the tops! Everything about it was perfect. It was clean, quiet, beautifully decorated and the food excellant. The hosts are charming and went out of their way to make us comfortable. We could have stayed at the Inn all day! We will be back!

This inn provides all it offers. Beautiful historic home, privacy, cleanliness, relaxing music,sumptuous details. The fireplaces really work, and availability to 24/7 well-stocked butler's pantry is true. Hosts know what guests want. We can't wait to return. If you want to escape for awhile, this is it.

One of the best B&B's I have been to in the Midwest. Great location for exploring. Rooms very luxurious.

This stay was a birthday gift to my girlfriend. We were extremely impressed with the accommodations, the beauty of the mansion, and the way the Williams' bend over backward to make your stay pleasant.
5 on February 14, 2011
This was our first bed and breakfast we had stayed in. The owners Ken & Chris where very nice and accommadating giving us a tour and history of there B & B. Our bed was so comfortable and the room had everthing, working fire place, mini firdge with waters, and a whirl pool tub. Another great perk was the 24hr snack kitchen with fruit,snacks,juices,water,coffee etc any tme you wanted it. If you ever have a chance be sure to try out Pinehill Inn Oregon IL.

Went to Oregon, Il on business. Found the Pinehill Inn online and my stay could not have been better. Nice cozy room with all the ammenities one could ask for. The bed was extremely comfortable!!!!! The surrounding area is beautiful. I had dinner at a local Italian establishment, suggested by my hosts at Pinehill, and it was great. I highly recommend Pinehill as a destination and a must stop when in the area. Thanks Pinehill

Chris greeted me, gave me the tour, answered my questions, and respectfully disappeared. I felt like I was at home, in that I was comfortable in very casual clothes, my room was very private, and I really liked having wireless internet. The basics (hot water, room temperature, television, etc.) were all above my expectations, and the luxuries (24/7 kitchen for guests, DVD library, refrigerator in room) were exceptional. The reasonable corporate rate makes this my new favorite place while working nearby.
4.6 on January 17, 2011
We had a lovely time. Pinehill is beuatifully maintained and decorated. The Somerset room was delightful with king-size bed and two-person jacuzzi bathtub. We can't wait to return.

We spent two nights here as we went through the nothern illinois wine trail. The wine left us wanting...But the Pinehill Inn was incredible! We loved the room, the service, the and the 24 hour kitchen :) It was a beautiful house, and we would definately consider going back for a relaxing weekend!
5 on November 14, 2010
These innkeepers "get it". Chris welcomed us at the door after a long day of travel but understood that we were eager to settle into our room, light a fire and be left to ourselves. After being given a quick tour of the mansion - including the most well-stocked butler's pantry I have seen in any B&B (every beverage/food imaginable including mini-eclairs, cream puffs, fresh muffins, fruit etc.) we were taken to the Somerset Room. As a writer, I had been looking forward to staying in the inn's premiere room where author Somerset Maugham stayed for 3 weeks penning part of the "Razor's Edge". After unwinding in front of the fire with a drink (for additional logs call downstairs & they will be silently deposited outside door) we had dinner at La Vigna - a charming Italian restaurant nearby w/ fireplace and delicious food. After dinner I luxuriated in a whirlpool bath in the spacious bathroom (double sinks). But the real gem of this room is the massive wood-carved king-size bed. We fell asleep with firelight flickering on the 12-foot high ceiling. Bliss. An elegant breakfast was served for us at a time of our choosing. Now we were in the mood to talk with Chris, the cook and innkeeper about the history of the building, local attractions, etc. I liked the fact that you can choose to either eat at a separate table or choose to sit with others. The breakfast was outstanding - huge fresh fruit salad, choice of entree (we chose poached eggs with fresh bicuits), roasted potatoes, juice, etc. Elegant presentation, and delicious. I will definitely return and am recommending Pinehill to friends in both Chicago and Milwaukee. When we first drove through the town of Oregon I didn't have high hopes. But sometimes you find hidden treasure in the most unlikely places. This is one of those finds.
5 on November 11, 2010
A beautiful historic property. Decorated with superb taste and historic authenticity. Fastidiously maintained and immaculately clean. Welcoming hosts, great breakfasts.

I took my husband on an evening get away to Pinehill. What a wonderful experience it was. The staff was wonderful, and the place was beautiful. We definitely would go back again. We did find breakfast delicious, but thought there might be more to choose from as the variety was very limited.
3.8 on November 09, 2010
The innkeeper offers guests excellent hospitality and is knowledgeable about the inn's and the area's history. The inn is quiet and well appointed.

My Wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at Pinehill Oct 29 and 30. We were in town for a Ministry event and decided to make it a romantic weekend. Pinehill fulfilled and exceeded every expectation. It is a beautiful, ornate Victorian manor. Worth every penny--we were transported to an era gone by--of pampered luxury and romantic indulgence.
4.8 on October 20, 2010
Beautiful inn with lovely rooms and very friendly innkeepers. All fireplaces work and rooms are nicely decorated. Close to Dixon-visit the riverfront and the book store, not to mention Reagan sites. I would definitely recommend this inn and will return again.

It was a historic site, cleanliness, excellent breakfast, wonderful owners/hosts (who spent a large amount of time with us talking about the home and area). Overall, a superb stay!! Best one we've stayed in yet!

My boyfriend and I went for a relaxing weekend and that's exactly what we got. From start to finish you felt like you were in another time period. It was beyond beautiful and no details were missed. Delicious breakfast. The bed was so comfortable. We had never been to a bed and breakfast before and were a little nervous but Chris made sure to put us at ease the second we arrived. We plan not only returning but telling everyone we know how incredible it was.
4.8 on October 03, 2010
Romantic, intimate, restful, and peaceful. Those four words describe our visit to Pinehill Inn Bed & Breakfast in Oregon, IL. Ken and Chris are the perfect hosts and made our stay memorable. Our room was richly appointed with every little detail. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch with our wine. The breakfast was excellent and filling. We will go again!

This was a great B&B. Not only beautiful but immaculate. Chris told us everything we should need to know about our stay and she is a wonderful host. Love the outdoor spaces and the private bathroom in our room. We were 4 women on a golf outing and it was so fun to be at Chris's and be able to sit on the wrap around porches after golf and enjoy our drinks before dinner. Hope to return next year.
4.2 on July 25, 2010
The innkeepers at Pinehill Inn have thought about every detail that can make the experience at their B&B a very pleasant one. The home is beautiful and the breakfast was outstanding. They also had good recommendations for area restaurants and activities and are clearly supportive of the entire town of Oregon, Illinois. I highly recommend Pinehill Inn.

The Pinehill Inn is charming and cozy with rooms that have extra little touches that make visitors feel pampered and special without charging an arm and a leg.

I booked the Somerset room a couple days before my wife's birthday in February. Last minute, I know, it's a guy thing. My wife and I had a memorable stay especially involving Chris who catered to our "preferences" such as having ample Hazelnut coffee available, extra log for the fireplace and a breakfast made actually to fit our taste. Breakfast was a 10 out of 10. Maybe ask for detailed directions since location is not easy to find even when asking the locals. Thanks again for a memorable birthday Chris and Ken!

Quiet, clean, comfortable, beautiful, warm, great value ($99 last minute weekend special) Will highly recommend to family and friends and hope to return for each season of the year! A memorable "sister's getaway"

The Pinehill Inn is located close to town, restaurants and shopping. The innkeepers are very accommodating and helpful. They are knowledgable about the Inn and surrounding area. We would recommend this Inn to anyone who enjoys a B&B experience.
5 on November 12, 2009
My mom and i had a excellent time at the B&B, it was the first time staying at one. Ken and Chris did an excellent job at making my nerves go away. I attended the B&B College they offer, I learned a lot. I also meet a couple there that i hope to stay frineds with for a long time. Chris is a wonderful cook.
5 on November 11, 2009
My daughter and I had an excellent and relaxing weekend with Ken and Chris. We attended their B&B College and learned a great deal. The friendiness of both Ken And Chris is heartwarming. We will be going back to stay again. I needed this weekend away and I found the perfect place to relax and refresh myself for my normal hetic life
5 on November 01, 2009
We couldn't have picked a more romantic place to stay. Chris and Ken have thought of all of the details that makes you feel pampered when you stay at the Pinehill Inn. We will go back.
4.4 on October 31, 2009
This is a fabulous B&B. We booked online for our 10th anniversary. A scheduling conflict arose for us, and after exchanging a few emails with Ken (who was very accommodating) we worked things out. Or so I thought. We showed up and they were already full. They had lost our reservation, and we had to drive to another town. At first Chris was a little abrupt with us, as we apparently should not have been there. Once they realized it was their mistake, they were both very kind and apologetic and offered us a gift certificate to return. I look forward to staying here sometime in the future, but I cried as we left because it sure threw a damper on our anniversary plans!
5 on September 22, 2009
My two friends and I, who grew up down the block from Pinehill gather once a year for a reunion. We could not have chosen better. The inn is spotless, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The hostess is impeccable and the meals excellent!
4.2 on September 10, 2009
Who would have ever thought that my hometown would offer such a fabulous bed and breakfast? This particular home is located in my "childhood neighborhood" in Oregon, Illinois. It was the second year in a row that three of the Jackson Street girlfriends got together to have our "reunion" at Pinehill which we had actually been in on occasion as children growing up in the 1950's. It is absolutely gorgeous in every detail inside and out. Each beautifully decorated and spotless room had its private bath and its own personality. If you would like to step back into the days of the early 20th century if not before, go to Pinehill. One of our favorite spots for chatting into the evening, sipping on iced teas and lemonade--was the private, quaint screened-in side porch. The food was prepared by Chris who does an awesome presentation equal only to the meal itself. It actually could be photographed and put into any of the best cuisine magazines published today. Absolutely fabulous food. Delicous and Delightful!
5 on August 31, 2009
This was our first B&B and Chris and Ken have set the bar high for the next one. We stayed in the Somerset room, and it was lovely. We only stayed two night and half the time it was raining. Our plans to canoe and fish were washed away but we didn't mind. This was a 50th birthday getaway. They have a wide selection of movies, so we picked a couple and layed in bed. The 24 hour kitchen area was a real treat. Knowing that you could get a snack, drink or coffee/tea at any time of the day was great. Would recommend to friends and if in the area again, would stay. Love it!
5 on August 26, 2009
All modern conveninces: baths, DVDs. Bosse radio, working fireplace. Great bed, wonderful breakfast. Casual yet elegant.
5 on August 14, 2009
They've thought of everything you could possibly want. I stay there every time I'm in the area!
5 on August 10, 2009
A truly surprising gem right here in Illinois! Transport yourself back in time when keys were used instead of key cards to gain entry to the building and your room. Well, let’s go back a little further -- working fireplaces, chandeliers, servant’s quarters with the comforts of modern times of private bathrooms with Jacuzzis in most rooms. Ken and Chris are the delightful ghosts, I mean hosts! They are there when you need them and they “disappear” and leave you to wander the main floor and the grounds without the feeling of trespassing. Mary Ann and Jerry

My hiusband and I stayed overnight at Pinehill Inn recently. It was a lovely home set in a beautiful setting. The proprietors, Ken and Chris, were so welcoming and gave us a wonderful tour of the home as well as some historical background information , which made our stay all the more enjoyable. We don't stay in B & Bs as often as we'd like, and our stay made us remember why we enjoy them so much! This is a definite "yes" for anyone looking for an elegant, serene setting as a getaway destination.
5 on May 26, 2009
We took a quick getaway from the city and retreated to the Pinehill Inn on a friend's recommendation. We "unwound" in such a short time. The room was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and QUIET. Chris was very helpful in directing us to the best local restaurants for lunch and dinner. The breakfasts were scrumptious and plentiful. When we travel, we prefer to stay in B&Bs for their comfort and the personal attention. Pinehill is at the top. It's a short drive for us from the Chicago suburbs, so we hope to return again.

We just stayed at the Pinehill Inn. It was an amazing, relaxing weekend. The food was wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed laying in the double hammock, sitting on the screened in porch and driving to some of the local sites in Oregon. This inn is a really great weekend for those of us living in Chicago who need to get away for even a night.

I took my sweetheart to the Pinehill B&B after inquiring about the property with the owner. Every aspect of the stay was amazing, especially breakfast. Thank you!

Just a short drive from Chicago, this B&B is tucked away. Driving up you see the gorgeous front entry which is just the first of amazing views. Each room is well appointed and tastefully decorated, VERY comfortable and cozy with the fireplace. The food is unbelievable!! Yummy and warming - you won't leave hungry! Chris and Ken are the ultimate hosts - making everyone feel welcome into their home. Great weekend and I can't wait to go back!!

We had a brunch for a 50 anniversary. The food was outstanding; very tasty, nice selection. The hostess was very personable and even took several pictures of our family. This was a perfect day that started with a lovely brunch and ended with a very pleasant room for the night. I would highly recommend this B&B to friends and family.. Very pleasant experience!

Chris and Ken have done a marvelous job maintaining and marketing a piece of history. The care and concern for their guests that they demonstrate makes my husband and me want to be return guests. We are anxious to share our "find" with friends and family. The Williams have made available an outstanding assortment of serve yourself breakfast and snack items, a perfect setup for the traveler who wants thoroughness and independence.

In a quiet part of town, in a very scenic section of the Rock River Valley, the Pine Hill Inn is a delight. Good food, comfortable rooms, in a historic building. Pat is a wonderful and knowledgeable hostess.

Beautiful B & B with a wonderful breakfast. Ken and Chris go out of their way to make you comfortable and feel at home.

The innkeepers were so nice! This is a beautiful old inn with lovely rooms in a very quiet location. I loved the 24/7 butler's pantry, where you could get snacks and a continental breakfast. Next time, I'll opt for the full breakfast! I'll definitely go back.

From the time we arrived to when we left we felt completely at home in this luxurious inn. This is the second time that we have stayed at the Pinehill Inn and both times were were thoroughly impressed with the level of hospitality that was provided. Kudos to Ken and Chris for making our stay wonderful!

We stayed here on our wedding night, being exhausted by a long day, it was a wonderful oasis, the room was beautiful, the bed was very comfortable and restful. The area around the B&B was quite serene and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and Ken and Chris were very accomodating.. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat..

1st time at a B & B for us & we were impressed! Food was fantastic & the bed was the most comfortable we'd ever slept in. Very clean. Nice, quiet location. Kitchen open 24/7 & you can come & go at all hours during your stay. Highly recommend & we'll go back if we're ever in the area again.

Ken and Chris have restored and decorated this beautiful, historic home and it's a fantastic 'get away'-close to several historic towns with great food and shopping and scenic parks. We totally look forward to the unbelievable breakfasts that Chris prepares and relaxing (with a good book) on the screened, wrap around porch. You feel like the home is 'your own' and they even have a small butler's pantry filled with goodies and great coffee or tea that you can have any time. We discovered them last year and have now been there twice and will be back next year. This really was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and we are now big fans!

2 childhood friends and I stayed at the Pine Hill for a one night slumber party. We had breakfast and dinner. The owner is a great and imaginitive cook. Not only was the food surprising in its variety, it was beautifully presented in the dining room. We all tasted yellow watermelon for the first time! We enjoyed visiting on an immaculate and charming screened in porch with ceiling fans and candles. We also found time to visit in the sitting areas of our rooms. We enjoyed the living spaces too. Everything seemed so inviting and private. It gave us the perfect opportunity to catch up on the last 50 years.

We have stayed at many B&B's over the years. Chris has really combined history with luxurious, amenities. A wonderful visit.

We spent a Monday and Tuesday night at this B&B for our 15th Anniversary -- and we enjoyed our stay so much, we're already planning to go back! The rooms are spacious and elegant. Impeccably clean inside and out. Absolutely gorgeous surroundings, located in a charming, peaceful small town. Innkeepers are friendly, professional, and exceedingly helpful! This is a great B&B!

We have stayed in over 70 B&B's across the US, Canada, and England. This one is superb! The house is fabulous! We stayed in the Library Suite, and thoroughly enjoyed the model ships made by Ken's father. I have slept on many twin beds/Kings, which were so-so. This one was EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, with the memory foam topper - and, guess what! The lighting in the bathroom was good enough to see well, very often a rarity in B&Bs. I loved the choice of European or Continental for breakfast. Had we more time, we would have chosen the sit-down breakfast with the other guests. Since we were visiting family in the area, we were rushed and could not. The pantry is wonderfully stocked, whether you want tea and a bedtime snack, or must-hurry breakfast like we did. We did not have the opportunity to meet Ken, but Chris is delightful! I even got a big hug from her when I turned in our keys. For being 100+ years, everything in the house feels clean and crisp - nothing shabby. The fireplaces and the staircase are beautiful. My only regret was that we had just 12 hours to stay at the inn. I would have loved several days!

They were VERY accomodating to our group. This inn is not meant for scrapbooking but they were nice enough to set-up tables and lamps for our use.

My girlfriends and I wanted to get some serious scrapbooking done and wanted to get awayy for the weekend. Pinehill let us take over a living room with tables to scrap. They're hospitality and kindness was incredible. Like staying at my moms!

The hospitality was wonderful and the full sit down breakfast was delicous. There are nice porches for sitting and swinging. Oregon, Illinois is just charming. Very Clean!

Waking up to the smell of a fabulous breakfast cooking. It is served on China along with Silver flatwear. Sitting on the porch swinging is great. The rooms are beautiful with elegant decor. Definitely a great B&B stay.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Pine Hill. Chris and Ken made us feel like family and the accomadations were fantastic. The attention to detail of your stay is overwhelming. Often its the small comforts that make a weekend away so nice. For us, traveling on a motorcycle doesnt offer you the chance to carry tons of extra baggage along but we found more than we had hoped to there. Relaxing, elegant, historic. I was very impressed. Do yourself a favor and purchase the Eoupean plan, Chris is an excellent pastry chef and the breakfast was wonderful. The 24hr. kitchen was a nice touch and I had tea at 3am on Sunday night as the storms rolled though. We spent two relaxing eveniing on the porch and two wonderful nights in the Library suite. We will be back.

I have traveled all around the states and I have stayed at various B&B's, but this one is one of my top five. Not only are the rooms elegant but the service is amazing. They are friendly, warm and aware of your personal space. It is definitely a hide away, you won't want to leave. The best part is that the rates are so great you can stay more than one night.

The management and personnel at the PineHill were excellent, very friendly, professional and accommodating to all our needs. The breakfasts were excellent prepared by an experienced and excellent cook. My wife and I will definitely be repeat customers.
