Great B &B

We had a very nice overnight stay at the Chestnut Street Inn. Jeff and Monica are great hosts. We had a wonderful breakfast cooked by Monica. We hope to return and enjoy and evening meal there in the future.


Terrific!

Chestnut St Inn is a very nice place to stay in a quiet part of rural American midwest. We highly recommend this inn and the innkeepers. Food is superb!


Second go around

This was our second stay here. This time we stayed in the "blue" room -- VERY comfortable bed -- impeccably clean, great water pressure (which is not always the case in these historic houses). Monikas cooking could not have been better. They offer dinner as well -- the night we stayed there they had a "Julia Child" inspired 5 course meal that was just incredible!! There are also treats everywhere you look (including in your room). I will go back again just for Monikas coconut macaroons!! All in all a great place to spend a weekend -- get ready for a culinary delight. Great job Monika and Jeff!! 5 stars!


Charming Bed and Breakfast

We chose the Chestnut Street Inn to celebrate a special occasion and we had a delightful time! Monica's meal was delicious and the Blue Room was charming and go above and beyond to make certain you are satisfied and have a high quality experience.. This is a very special place to celebrate a milestone or a wonderful getaway for a night or weekend.

The Chestnut Street Inn is very well appointed throughout the building. The living room and the guest rooms are great. The food and service is spectacular. Breakfast was always delicious and dinner was way beyond my expectations. Do yourself a favor and stay at Monika and Jeff's inn. You'll love it!


Don't miss this!

What a lucky find! A family reunion was in the area so we needed a place to stay! What a relaxing, charming and delicious night we had! I would encourage you and yours to head to Chestnut Street and enjoy the amenities and the down time! Give yourself a treat to a five star meal and all the beautiful appointments Monika and Jeff have to offer!


You simply MUST check this place out!

It is always a pleasure to spend a night or two at Chestnut Inn. The owners always have a story or two to share, and they make you feel right at home. Anything Monika decides to create in her kitchen is sure to be a treat. We will always stop here if we are anywhere in the area. It is quaint, cute, and quiet.


Another Day in Paradise

It's hard to know what to say about the Chestnut Street Inn that hasn't already been said, including by me. The rooms are beautiful and scenic, with every amenity one can imagine. The food is world-class. Monika and Jeff are gracious, caring, fun people. If you want to talk, they're great conversationalists; if you want to be left alone, they leave you alone. My wife and I go there every year, even when we don't have another reason to visit the area. A++.
