From the moment you enter the Inn, you'll feel the intimacy and hospitality of the Victorian era.

Very Enjoyable Stay

3.2 on July 24, 2016

When we travel we stay at B& Bs as much as possible. The Bundling Board Inn meet our expectations. The room was clean and the facilities met our expectations. The inn Keepers were very easy to deal with and our breakfast meet our expectations. The town of Woodstock, Il was quite interesting and we enjoyed the time we were downtown.

From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty by Merida and Russell! The care, the food, and great conversation all made us feel like family or old friends. Merida and Russell make incredible breakfasts, cookies and took into account all our food allergies. The room was homey, beautifully decorated, and tremendously comfortable! If you're looking for a super B&B stay, this is the place to go in this part of the world! Thank you Merida and Russell!

Stayed at Bundling Board Inn the night before Groundhog Day in Woodstock, IL (where the movie was filmed). Beautiful property and room, and the breakfast the next morning was truly one to remember. I highly recommend this B&B, and we will be coming back again!

Great Stay

Walking into the Bundling Board Inn was like walking into the Victorian past, with beautiful furniture and antiques. The hosts, Merida and Russell Johns made us feel right at home, especially with their homemade cookies hot out of the oven. They are very knowledgeable about the history of the house and community. The breakfasts were awesome and Russell makes great smoothies. We highly recommend this B&B.

Wonderful Experience

We travel the country and stay at B & B' s when ever possible. Would highly recommend Bundling Board. Able to provide vegan options for breakfast and snacks. Owners are delightful. Jack & Margaret Gariota
