My 2 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blessings On State. The sign posted near the door reading "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" certainly applies 100%. Their home is located in the quiet historic district of Jacksonville on a beautiful tree-lined street. We were charmed by the notes of the player grand piano when we entered. Gwenn sat us down in the parlour and went over the basics of the home, while her helpful and friendly young daughter carried our bags up to our rooms. Both rooms available have super comfortable beds (2 of us slept entirely through the night!) and cozy reading areas, with a buffet in the hall stocked with coffee, tea, soda, water, chips and mints. Elegant chandeliers hang in each room. Plenty of options for reading, watching TV or videos are available. Luxurious baths. On to the food! Our first breakfast included a remarkable poached pear, cranberry muffin, mushroom/bacon/cheese frittata, hash browns and asparagus, along with fresh orange juice and coffee. All served by their adorable daughter. The next morning's delight was a belgian waffle decked out with berries, whipped cream, and vanilla ice cream, with real maple syriup and a side of sausage links. We felt so pampered and well taken care of. Their home, along with its comfortable wrap around porch and beautiful gardens, is extremely lovely but not fussy and untouchable. We cannot wait to stay again the next time we visit Jacksonville.

The house was beautiful, surrounded by flowers and large trees. I loved sitting on the porch watching robins in the birdbath. Breakfast was lovely. I felt like both an honored guest and part of the family. Gwen was awesome!! She really went the extra mile to be accommodating and hospitable. I highly recommend staying here!!!

Great, homey B & B in Jacksonville, IL. Flexible, friendly hosts made us feel welcome and pampered. Special touches included homemade cookies waiting when we arrived, fun tour from Valerie, and amazing fresh breakfast. Treat yourself and stay here for a unique, small-town retreat.

We felt like family the minute we walked in the door. Gwenn was extremely friendly and hospitable. She made dinner reservations for us each night and when we entered the restaurants, we were called by name. The food at the B&B was superb - served on china at a window table overlooking a garden. Rooms were very large and comfortable. We've stayed at a lot of B&B's, but this one has got to be the best! We truly hated to leave.

My husband and I have stayed at Blessings twice, and will never look anywhere else when we visit Jacksonville. Every detail of the home is lovely, the innkeeper and her family are so genuinely welcoming, and the breakfast is the best anywhere. Blessings is right in the middle of the beautiful historic district. Gwenn has done an amazing job of outfitting the inn, there are little snacks and drinks, comfy chairs, stuff to read. It is a very relaxing place to hang out in between whatever activities took you to Jacksonville.

I've stayed here many times and it keeps getting better! My Tranquility Suite is roomy and beautiful. I love the walk-in shower. Love to sit on the porch and read - it's so restful. The new fountains provide a relaxing background. The food is great and the service is wonderful. I'd highly recommend Blessings to anyone who wants a quiet getaway.

We stayed at this Bed & breakfast in early June, 2011 and though the home and the innkeepers were delightful. We prefer to stay in B & B's rather than Hotels and this one was exceptional. Gwenn, Glen and also little Varlerie were freindly and actually went out of their way to make you comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding and the home was very clean and well kept. We stayed in the larger suite and the king bed was comfortable and I can not begin to even tell you how absolutely beautiful and roomy the bathroom is. I highly recommend this B & B. Nancy & Mike from Pa.

Blessings On State exceeded our expectations. This was the perfect stay for our weekend away. The cozy suite and beautiful bathroom (with a large shower and cozy tub), the 24 hour beverage station, fresh baked cookies before bed, the delicious breakfast served at our convenience (I'm still trying to duplicate a recipe) and our hospitable Innkeeper Gwenn, made our first stay at a B&B a time to remember. We hope to be back for another stay in the future. If you plan to be in the area or our just looking for a B&B to stay for a little getaway, Blessings On State is the place!
