The Best - from two of us that have seen many

5 on October 26, 2014

My husband and I have been to many Bed and Breakfasts throughout 11 years of marriage and 5 years of dating. We never found one that was so amazing that we had to go back. Then we found Chestnut Street Inn last year and have been back again two times with many more planned. We can't go anywhere else because none of them compare. Jeff and Monika are the friendliest, most genuine and down to earth owners we have ever met. Monika has made some of the most incredible food for both dinner and breakfast that we have ever eaten. As a professional chef she makes homemade gourmet dinners and breakfast that would easily be served in some of the finest restaurants around. All we have to do is come downstairs to our own private table for two to enjoy. With one room that we recently stayed in (Rosewood room) there is an adjoining private dining room just for our room only with wrap around windows that we were served a gourmet breakfast at just steps from our bed. Their rooms are the most warm and inviting of any we have seen, and I think they have found the most comfortable king size beds and pillows made. Overall, Chestnut Street Inn is amazing in every regard. The owners, atmosphere, hospitality, food and surroundings are the perfect combination for a romantic weekend without ever needing to leave the house, which is very much our style. For those interested there are quite a few attractions within close driving distance, of which Monika and Jeff are very knowledgeable about. Definitely the best.

This is my new happy place

My husband and I booked our stay at the Chestnut Street Inn at the recommendation of a friend. We were not steered wrong. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. The grounds were peaceful, colorful, and spacious. I can't say enough about how delicious the food was. We decided to have dinner one night in addition to the breakfasts and it was one of my favorite food experiences ever and I say this as someone with a background in the culinary arts. Monika worked adeptly around my strange list of food allergies and sensitivities as well as my husband's. The best part of the stay, though, is by far getting to meet and talk with Monika and Jeff. They are amazing people and they really take the time to make sure you feel welcome and happy there.

Just a perfect getaway. Jeff and Monika were wonderful hosts. For us, as former innkeeper / owners every detail was attended to perfectly. The meals were outstanding. Will return.

Change of Plans - (un)Fortunate

5 on October 20, 2014

2 weeks ago a planned stay had to be cancelled - I was really disappointed having been to Chestnut Inn several times before. But I was able to make a dinner reservation for my self and a friend for last night. We were alone in the dining room but Jeff and Monica provided OUTSTANDING food and service. They do a wonderful job of making their guests feel as comfortable as if they were in their own home.

Couldn't have been better!!!! Don't skip dinner, Monica is a wonderful chef and host!

This was a return trip for us and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more! Jeff and Monica are amazing hosts and the optional dinner was amazing as was breakfast the next morning!!! Such a wonderful B&B! We will be back and hopefully for a cooking class next time!

Friendly B and B

A very friendly and charming B&B. Room was extremely comfortable with lovely linens, comfy pillows, nightlights and little flashlights (plus chocolates). Monika and Jeff were warm and welcoming. We had a very pleasant stay; breakfast was delicious with a nice presentation. I would definitely recommend plus would return for another stay.

Jeff and Monika make everyone feel welcome and are a pleasure to visit with. Monika's cooking is not to be missed, and Jeff's the epitome of 'service with a smile."

A special B&B

We had the pleasure of staying one night at the Chestnut Street Inn. The property is well maintained and ambiance charming. The innkeepers Monika and Jeff are gracious and welcoming. Above all, the most exciting part was the truly outstanding food. Chef Monika prepared a personalized dinner based on our likes provided in advance and the breakfast was equally as delicious. The Chestnut Street Inn was highly recommended to us and we will highly recommend it to others. Mark and Mary Lou/Chicago, IL
