We have stayed here for our 3rd time. We love it and we love Charlotte. She feels like family to us. I would recommend her place to anybody!

A fantastic place to stay

WOW! Such a peaceful place! I loved the big welcome me and my girlfriends received when we arrived! Not just from Miss Charlotte, but the pets as well! I felt like I was home! Charlotte provided so much history of the place it was amazing! There was plenty to do around the home with the trails and river nearby. We stayed in the Lindbergh room which is beautiful! The home is amazing; so comfortable. I will definitely visit Charlotte again!!! Thank you Charlotte!

More than Expected!

I stayed at the Fox River B&B last weekend with a couple friends. It was so relaxing and comfortable. Charlotte is a wonderful hostess! The setting is in the beautiful countryside and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Breakfast was great and I loved the relaxing music and great tea selection. Definately going back whenever I can!

Amazing, Comfortable, Anxious to return!

We recently chose the Fox River Bed & Breakfast for a ‘Girls Weekend’, and are so glad that we did! It was comfortable, cozy and the perfect setting for relaxation. The grounds were amazing and there was a lot of interesting places to visit within walking distance of the house. The breakfast was incredibly delicious! The hostess, Charlotte, is amazing and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. We stayed in the Lindberg room which was beautifully furnished. All together very affordable. I would recommend this B&B to friends and look forward to a future visit!

Stayed in Lindberg Room. Wonderfully furnished, quiet stay, lots of TV stations, cozy. Beautiful grounds & near to everything necessary. Relaxing music with awesome hot homemade breakfast -- as much as you want to eat. All at an affordable price.

Great Experience at a Very Reasonable Cost!

I found the Fox River B&B on line while I was looking for somewhere to stay in the Ottawa area during a 5 week relocation jig. The rooms were very clean, the area very scenic, and Charlotte (hostess) was very accommodating & made my transition back to the midwest very easy. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, friendly place to stay (and the prices are very reasonable).

Great value for a great place

This is a beautiful little house in the countrysides of Illinois. The innkeeper is a sweet lady who does everything she can to make you feel at home. This is the best place I've ever stayed at, and still at a low price.

Delightful Stay

I stayed at the Fox River in August of 2008 while on business in Ottawa. This beautiful and historic house is well run and very accommodating. I would never have thought of vacationing in northern Illinois, but after staying here, I want to go back.

A Must Stay!!!

I treated my husband to a stay at his first B&B. I didn't tell him until we were on the road where we were staying because he would have complained the entire time he knew. As it was, when I told him we were staying at a B&B and would have to share a bathroom with other guests, he started tensing up and started complaining. I asked him to keep an open mind. He has not stopped bragging since we came home! He is telling everyone he knows about Fox River B&B and how nice it is and how wonderful Charlotte, our hostess, was. The house was beautiful, the food delicious, the tranquility a very much needed reprieve from the normal grind and I can't wait to go back!
