Beautifully decorated

4.8 on September 02, 2013

In fact, their decorator deserves an award! Staying in such beautiful surroundings makes it easy to relax and enjoy your time away from home. Beth has every creature-comfort you might require, including a vibrating exercise machine that you would likely have to use at your own risk! (By the way, it looks fun. I had never seen anything like it.)

A gem near Chicago!

If you are visiting Chicago or Oak Park, forget the big hotels and stay at the Harvey House. A wonderful gem tucked away in beautiful Oak Park with great rooms and fabulous service and breakfasts to die for. Nearby scenic neighborhoods and FLW houses and great local restaurants to choose from. The Metra is close enough to get to town and hardly noticeable for sound. Stayed there for several days for the Ryder Cup and enjoyed our visit immensely. We'll be back.

The Wright Stuff, As In Architecture

Spouse and I were visiting Frank Lloyd Wright sites and Harvey House was just the right place. On top of location, the facility was great - clean, up-to-date and the owner and daughter provided a great - the best - breakfast and conversation. A terrific place to visit and stay.

Stayed one night in Golden Chest Suite. Unfortunately didn't get to spend much time actually at the B&B but it was great! Very clean and the service was attentive.

Honeymoon Spectacular

We had such a great time while we were in Oak Park! This B&B has a great romantic and peaceful environment! The owner was friendly, outgoing and informative! We loved our stay and are hoping that we can go again in the future!

Great place!

Cozy, beautiful, clean--James Stewart room (and the entire B&B) is highly recommended. 10 minute walk to downtown Oak Park. My wife and I had a great, relaxing afternoon/evening/morning there.

Our stay in the Jimmy Stewart room

The room was amazing. Loved the large attached bathroom & the little extra's left for guest use. The food was amazing & owner & employee were very friendly & fun to talk with. What a great & relaxing stay.

Fantastic Night Away from Home

5 on November 17, 2011

This is the second time I've stayed at Harvey House, and it was even better than I remembered. The rooms are beautiful, the service is better than you could ask for, and the food is delicious. My partner and I were staying there after getting married and were planning on having an early breakfast to get back in the city so as to see a friend before they had to leave town. But since we got in so late, Beth invited us to have our friend come meet us and offered breakfast for the 3 of us - at no extra charge! It was such a delight to be able to sleep in and relax with a cappucino (or two), and have a leisurely breakfast with our friend, instead of having to scidaddle out of there so quickly. It really made our stay just that much better. I highly recommend Harvey House to anyone who is looking for a night where someone else is fully taking care of you.
