My wife and I were looking to getaway from the Chicago area, and the Songbird Prairie B&B was perfect! From just north of Chicago we made it down in about an hour and a half and were welcomed to the beautiful home and our amazing room. The hospitality, the room, and the breakfast were all perfect. We enjoyed the songbirds surrounding the sun-filled breakfast room each morning. And Valparaiso providing for nice excursions and offered some terrific restaurants. Highly recommended!

It all starts as soon as you are greeted at the door,where we were welcomed by the owners who run the home.The ambiance of the living room that leads to the dining area is just so eloquent.The view from the dining room offers an overlook of wooded areas with many species of birds that will come up to give you a photo opp while they feed. We stayed in the Bluebird room which was absolutely beautiful,warm and cozy,with the Kingsized bed,fireplace,heated tile floors in the bathroom and double whirlpool bath for two.It was so quiet,peaceful and all so private!The following morning we came down to breakfast where Barb was cooking an amazing breakfast for us that included Belgium waffles with fresh strawberries,blueberries and other fruit along with gourmet coffee and fresh orange juice,(among other food items),all served on a beautiful table setting with delightful service from Barb herself and her husband Efrain.What wonderful people they are!Anyways,this Bed and Breakfast far exceeded any expectations and we cannot wait to go back there.Five Star for sure.

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Barbara is very nice and cares about each resident. It is a great comfy feel without feeling crowded by other residents. We still felt the romance and seclusion in our room and at breakfast! The facilities were GREAT ...everything was clean and lovely. I am not a bird person. but it was so peaceful and fun to watch the birds while enjoying breakfast. Her food is unique and yummy. We really enjoyed the soaked pear. It would've been nice to have light sodas in the guest fridge (e.g. Sprite/Ginger Ale). Other than that it was a great escape and we will be back.

We were really impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. The photos on the web do not do the rooms justice. They are very cozy (and romantic!). We stayed in the PurpleFinch Suite. It has the BEST Jacuzzi tub. It was so nice sipping tea and relaxing in the tub. The property is very well kept. The owners clearly take a lot of pride in their B&B. Breakfast was great - and chef/restaurant quality. Since we stayed during the winter months, we didn't tour the property. The bare trees did however afford us the opportunity for some great bird watching during breakfast! We will definitely be back.
