A great night in the Mansion

Great house, great neighborhood and great hosts....will go back again


Perfect stay close to Airport

We had a beautiful stay in July 2016. The house has a wonderful architecture and a charming flair of the good old times. It is huge, and Steven is a super nice guy. Suites are well maintained and breakfast very tasty. A 35 minute drive to O'Hare. Perfect stay outside of Chicago.


A lovely getaway

We had a great stay at The Mansion for one night. The hosts are very nice and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious. They also had around the clock butterscotch cookies and tea. The house has a nice old charm to it, and the room was cozy. (John F. Fierke Suite)


Took us back in time

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at The Mansion, the feel and the look took us back to more elegant historical times, so if you like the early 1900s this is the place for you. Our host and owner Steve was wonderful and very helpful besides a really good cook, cheese omelette was fantastic. Thank you, Steve and a shout out to his wife she made incredible butterscotch cookies.


A Beautiful Place to Stay

This is a remarkable old home in a charming neighborhood. The mansion is beautiful — we especially liked the breakfast nook, but the exterior shows a little wear and tear. Steve was a great host, who wasn't intrusive but was available to chat about the house and make recommendations for local restaurants when we wanted to talk. He made us a fine breakfast, too.

First Time at a B&B

Wonderful stay at The Mansion! Steve was a great host, great cook and excellent conversationalist. The room was gorgeous, the bed was very comfortable, and the entire area was quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended!


A most unusual home.

The night we stayed, we were the only guests so we got Steve's full attention. He is a delightful host, a great cook and an even better spinner of stories. This amazing house from the gilded age has many to tell.


Perfect Retreat

Our stay went without a hitch. The innkeeper was so kind. Ourroom was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious!


Awesome Hospitality, History, and Helpfulness!

5 on April 29, 2015

From his greeting at the door when we first arrived, to his careful and gracious attendance to our every need, the owner Steve was the consummate host! Delightful details like hot tea in the afternoon, freshly backed cookies and a scrumptious breakfast served up with endless coffee, fresh orange juice (thanks, Eda!) and fascinating historical details about the mansion and the city made our stay here so very pleasant. Easy walking distance to great shopping and dining, the Mansion proved to be a very special place to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary! Thanks so much, Steve and Eda!
