Peaceful Paradise

This is a cool and soothing room, with its woodland tones. Lots of windows make it seem almost like it is part of the trees. A small sitting area with a writing desk is tucked in one corner. This guestroom has a king sized feather bed. The large upstairs bathroom is right down the hall.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King

Nightly Rate: $95-$95

Secret Garden

Walk into this room and be swept into a flurry of roses. It has a mauve and pink king sized feather bed, with antiques dotting the room.

Serenity Cove

Restful, peaceful, serene and a bit playful is how we think of this guestroom, with its two twin feather beds, both with white lacy canopies. The blue and white room has a small partners desk, just right for gazing out the bay window, daydreaming or writing in your journal. The large bright bathroom is only steps away.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Vintage Comfort Suite

Words can barely describe the beauty of this suite. Perfect for a honeymoon couple or a private comfort pampering retreat for yourself. The room is dramatic in gold and black, with many small vintage mirrors on the walls, spreading even more light into this big bright room with a king size feather bed.

This suite has its own large, luxurious bath area with a Jacuzzi and a bay window. Wonderful for a deep relaxing break from the rush of everyday.

excellent stay and welcoming host.


Great experience

4.8 on February 17, 2014

I found about this place online and decided to plan a surprise gate a way for my wife. I must say most romantic and hystorical place i have ever stayed in. Whole experience left a smile on our face when we left the next day. Indeed a must visit place.


Best B&B you will ever stay at!

5 on September 11, 2013

Sherry has paid great attention to providing old country charm with modern comforts along with the most scrumptious breakfast! I've stayed at similar inns around the world and B&Bs from Napa to Monterey California. Never before have I seen such amazing detail and charm in literally every inch of this beautiful old farmhouse! These rooms could easily go for 2-3 x more elsewhere and a short drive to Long Grove's cute village shops and Old Mill will complete the respite!


Charming & cozy

I stayed at the Old Victorian Farmhouse in September, 2013. I booked three of the rooms (all except the suite) for my my mother, sister, brother and myself. We came for the weekend from IL, MI and NC to celebrate my mother's birthday. I have stayed in many B&Bs and the Farmhouse compares very favorably. This is the first time I have stayed in a B&B where the rooms share a bathroom but since I only shared with family members it wasn't inconvenient. The owner, Sherry, is very friendly and accommodating and we greatly enjoyed visiting with her over the sumptuous breakfasts she served us! The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed and our stay was very restful. The rooms are also very affordable, especially considering the high standards of hospitality. We all had a lovely stay and will certainly return if we have opportunity.


Great place to stay north of Chicago

5 on July 30, 2013

We had a great time at the Old Victorian Farmhouse - this is a wonderful place to stay and Sherry did a fantastic job to make us feel at home. If you are searching for a great place to stay north of Chicago, we highly recommend the Old Victorian Farmhouse.


Amazing stay, loved it!

5 on May 26, 2013

This was my first time here and I have to say this place was just amazing. I stayed in the Serenity Cove and Sherry's style and attention to detail is awesome. Bedding smelled fresh and clean, breakfast variety was great. I was here for a wedding in Chicago and the drive into town was convenient. I've never stayed at a place so comfortable so much like home I would definitely stay here again. Relaxing, romantic and shops and restaurants in downtown Wauconda are great!


Wonderful place to stay

Brought my daughter for a mother daughter night away and what a gem we found. Sherry is fabulous the home is beautiful and we had a wonderful time. I've told all my friends about it so they can come and I plan on coming back in the spring/summer with both my daughters to enjoy the lovely screened in porch. Her breakfast is delicious! This is well worth a trip, you will make memories you won't forget.


So close to Chain O' Lakes State Park!

4.2 on October 01, 2012

I recently stayed at the Old Victorian Farm House Bed and Breakfast and I had a lovely experience. The owner was very kind and courteous and the food was very tasty. All the rooms are nice and the decor is very interesting and romantic. We were delighted to discover that chain o'lakes state park was 15 minutes away, and we traveled there for both canoeing and horseback riding. We only stayed for 48 hours (a nice trip that doesn't necessarily require time off from work) but it was well worth the visit. -Robin


business stay

5 on September 20, 2012

stayed here for 4 nights on business when I had problems booking my usual hotel; I really enjoyed my stay here - it was almost like a home-away-from home (though a lot more beautiful than my actual home), and Sherry was a wondeful host; also a great restaurant nearby for dinner - fun to hear about the "Murder Mystery"events that Sherry hosts here...we may have to come back and give one of those a try.
