About

Built in 1931, The Robertshaw Country House is a grand example of a Colonial Revival house constructed with fine craftsmanship and excellent materials. Amidst the natural beauty of the grounds at St. Emma Monastery, the Robertshaw Country House offers a charming and lovingly decorated home-like setting for a home-away-from-home experience. Our guests will enjoy a European style breakfast with an extensive selection of wonderful foods. Guests are invited to enjoy our beautiful gardens and outdoor terrace, and to walk the outdoor paths. Those so desiring may join our monastic community for The Liturgy of the Hours and/or daily Mass, or simply enjoy some quiet prayer time in one of our chapels.

A Little Piece of Heaven

5 on August 10, 2016

This peaceful setting, with angelic hostesses, immaculate rooms, and divine breakfasts will leave you totally satisfied. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.


Very comfortable and a good value.

I find this inn both comforting and comfortable, and have returned many times over the last few years. They are very generous with food- you never leave hungry in the morning. The beds are so comfortable and the silence so complete that I sleep better here than at home. If you need to unwind in the evening, the living room is a great place to lounge with an ipad or book. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.


Quiet visit before Christmas

5 on December 17, 2015

The Robertshaw Country House was spotlessly clean and beautifically decorated. Christmas decorations were everywhere in the common areas and inside the large and well appointed rooms. Sister Renata was a most gracious hostess and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Although the property was about 80 years old, it had all of the modern conveniences today's travelers have come to expect. The property and its country setting are beautiful and very quiet. We greatly enjoyed our visit.

Robertshaw B&B is delightful. It is so quiet and relaxing that I find myself wanting to stay there for a much longer time. The rooms are beautiful. Each room has a fireplace which makes the room and cozy on cool Fall evenings.

A very special place

4.8 on April 18, 2015

A unique, amazing place to stay. Sr. Renata greeted us warmly, explained how the B & B worked (basically, guests have the run of the whole guest house) and showed us to our room - The Garden Room. Double queen beds and loads of detailed touches to make our stay comfortable. There are 100 acres of grounds that belong to the monastery so it's great for a jog or a walk. And SO peaceful. Breakfast was help yourself with lots of choice. There are two sitting rooms and a beautifully decorated dining room, as well as (downstairs) a gift shop and TV lounge. Highly recommended.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our B&B!!! We are so glad that you enjoyed it so much!!! Remember to 'Come Back HOME...Soon!!!'


Relaxing, Peaceful, Restful Retreat

5 on April 06, 2015

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Robertshaw Country House last week. We could not believe what a hidden gem this place is! We happened to stumble upon this bed and breakfast as we were looking to break up our drive home from Washington DC to Chicago; and boy, did we hit the jackpot! We cannot say enough about our stay here. Sister Renata and the other adorable sisters you see whisking in and out of the house are absolutely endearing, welcoming and more accommodating than any other Innkeepers we have stayed with in the past. We typically stay at Diamond Collection properties around the country and found this one to be the most comfortable and peaceful we've found. We have already told many of our friends and family about the Robertshaw Country House and cannot wait to come back and make our stay longer this time!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you!!! We are so glad that your stay with us was such a great experience!!! We can't wait for you to come back and visit the Robertshaw, we look forward to you coming back home soon!!!

About the innkeepers

It is a real pleasure to meet all the awesome folks who come 'Home' to the Robertshaw, seeing someone smile as they find a perfect book to sit on the patio with or curl up in front of the fireplace with a cup of tea in the winter....getting to not just make new friends, but to enlarge "our family".... being an Innkeeper is a very rewarding experience!
