Monika and Jeff are great hosts. Not only is the breakfast wonderful, the dinner is fantastic. A place you must visit. And like us, once you come here you will be back many times.

Lovely Accommodations! Gracious, informative, delightful and loving Innkeepers! Absolutely DELICIOUS and AMPLE meals (we had dinner and breakfast)! We visit here every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and attend other nights during the year just for the dinners! Chef Monika is magnificent! Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend getaway, Jeff and Monika! We'll be back!

First time at a B&B it was very clean and nice place to stay great people me and my wife and daughter stayed for a night we were coming from Pa heading to Cellular center in Iowa to watch our son wrestle in National Meet. My wife and daughter have dietary needs my wife is gluten free and my daughter is dairy free Monika nailed our breakfast spot on she made the best pancakes that meet everyone's needs. I would defiantly come back again and recommend Chestnut Street Inn Monika and Jeff make a great team for a great stay!! Thank You,


Girls Getaway

I can't say enough good things about Chestnut Street Inn B&B. The food is the reason we first made the hour long trip for dinner many years ago. The food AND the hospitality are the reasons we continue to return. On a recent girls visit one of our friends during dinner described the taste of Monika's cooking as, "A cascade of flavors in your mouth." Her food makes you love things you've never even liked the taste of before. The unique blend of spices and combinations she uses are true artistry. The passion she has for what she does can be tastes in each delicious, savory bite. When we first discovered the Inn we would drive there for dinner and drive home that same evening since it was only an hour away. However, one weekend I took my mother there for a girls weekend and we booked the Green Room for the night. We now not only go for dinner but stay the night as well. If you decide on an overnight trip you will risk falling just as deeply in love with breakfast as you did dinner. The last breakfast we had consisted of poached eggs over fresh crab cakes. All of which were made from scratch with real, fresh ingredients. With Jeff's entertaining personality, and stories and Monika's warm hospitality and skill in the kitchen it will be a place you will want to visit over and over again. You will not be disappointed!

Great Stay!

Just returned home from a lovely stay at The Chestnut Inn in Sheffield Illinois. We are longtime aficionados of B&B's and what we look for beside location are nicely appointed rooms conducive to rest and relaxation. We also hope to have nice hosts and other interesting guests with whom to converse. We found all of these qualities at The Chestnut Inn. Jeff and Monika are amiable and make themselves available. The amenities at the house are stellar from the comfortable bed to the toiletries, robes and chocolate candy in the room. The common areas are welcoming. We especially loved the dining area which is light and airy with nice views. Breakfast was fantastic and a note to those with gluten allergies Monika is well aware how to prepare gluten free dishes and in fact wrote a cookbook with that issue in mind of which we now have a copy. The town is tiny and quaint. We selected that location because we wanted to visit Princeton and some historic homes in the area. We would highly recommend this establishment and do ask about the evening meal that can be booked on certain days. We asked not to be told the menu and were surprised with a delicious gourmet meal.


Delightful New Year's Eve

4.8 on January 08, 2018

We had read some reviews, including an article in Chicago Tribune Sunday travel section on the best breakfast at a B&B. All favorable. The Inn was wonderful. Monika and Jeff were very welcoming, and really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable throughout your stay. We booked the dinner, and glad we did. My wife, upon starting with the first course said, “She is incredible!” Each course was perfection. Will be most pleased to return to The Chestnut Street Inn, and hosts Jeff and Monika.


As temperatures dipped to -8’, we stayed warm and cozy in this delightful oasis in North Central IL.

The cherry on this exceptional b&b sundae is the amazing, creative breakfasts every morning. Chef Monika delights with lemon blueberry pancakes, light as air baked French toast, and eggs in a basket with innovative new twists. All arrive with bacon or sausage, and perfectly ripe fruit in the middle of winter! Unexpected pleasure after unexpected pleasure. Co-host Jeff is entertaining, attentive and muti-talented. Loved it, and would definitely return.
