The Loft Bed and Breakfast

21648 Old Farm Ave , Petersburg, IL 62675 USA (Show map)


The Loft Bed & Breakfast is a unique and relaxing retreat featuring the finest amenities in a scenic private setting. Located on 63 rolling acres between the many attractions and tourist sites in Springfield and historic Petersburg, Illinois, The Loft is the perfect setting for a romantic weekend, a girlfriend get-away, or a relaxing reunion with friends. While there are many Bed & Breakfast venues, there are none quite like this. It is located on “The Farm” which is the area’s premier outdoor attraction for beautiful touring gardens, an expansive gift shop, and even weddings and hayrides. You’ll enjoy deer, turkey, fox and an occasional eagle from the windows or the deck. Or take a leisurely hike down to the river bluffs. You’ll be surrounded by amazing peace and quiet. If you are into history, you’ll be minutes away from the Lincoln sites in Springfield and Petersburg. If you enjoy nature, you will be near Site M for hiking, fishing, boating, horseback riding and hunting. Visit the area wineries for live music and some great local wines. Take in a live outdoor show at Theatre in the Park at Lincoln’s New Salem. There are so many things to see and do. Or, if you just want to relax and spend some quality time with someone special, this is the place.

Peaceful Escape

4.8 on August 19, 2014

My significant other and I have very stressful jobs and are busy parents. We needed a little time to get away and regroup as a couple and just have some down time to breathe. This was the absolute perfect place. The Loft is beautifully done; warm and inviting. We enjoyed visiting the horses, donkeys and chickens; seeing deer and turkey from the deck and drinking wine in the beautiful gardens, with several choices for sitting spots. We explored the small town of Petersburg-some cute shops. We visited New Salem Historic Site which was very interesting. We went to Panther Creek Fish & Wildlife Area to kayak. Gail was a great hostess; service was terrific. Her shop is fabulous. Had I not missed our son and dog, I would have gladly stayed a whole week rather than 3 nights. I would recommend this lovely B & B to anyone and I do hope to return for another stay.

If it's solitude and warmth that you seek, find your way to The Farm and up the stairs of The Loft. My girlfriend and I soaked up as much of the cozy, quiet atmosphere as we could for two days and nights. Both being from Springfield and not needing see it's wonderful sites or eating at all of our favorite spots, we opted to bring our own delicious foods to make our own meals for the entire weekend and just to "get away from it all." It's easy to make everything feel like home in The Loft, with a quaint fireplace in the living area to warm your toes, a shower that can't go without singing in, and an absence of worries and stresses that can all rejuvenate a stationary spirit. We will definitely be returning to The Farm and hopefully bringing friends and family with us! -Ryan and Cassie-

You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed at the Loft as a way to have some time away. We loved everything about our stay. It was peaceful and quiet. We had breakfast on the back porch and I enjoyed a long nap during one afternoon. There are lots of tourist things to do in Springfield and the local area. However, we did tourist things before we arrived at the Loft and after we left. My husband and I would highly recommend staying at the Loft. Gail is extremely helpful and just a fun person to visit with. You will not be disappointed.

Searching this site from CA for a place to take my Super Senior Mom from Central Illinois I felt I hit the lottery in selecting The Loft. Our hostess Gail went beyond reach to help complete our experience. The space is so generous maybe we will include Mom's best friend and her daughter. You won't be disappointed

Pre-teen Birthday Bash!

4.8 on April 22, 2013

We celebrated my daughter's 12th Birthday at The Farm. My daughter and her 4 friends had a GREAT time. They want to live there! Gail and Eric attended to every small detail. I never had to ask for a thing. ALL needs were anticipated. The Farm is such a great find. A magical place full of beauty and peace. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. If you are thinking of staying there, I can tell you that you will NOT be disappointed.

We had a wonderful time staying at the loft. The accommodations were fantastic and the atmosphere was beautiful. We look forward to spending some time here again when the weather is warm and the gardens are in full bloom.

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable night for 4 ladies to escape the craziness of home and day to day. Quiet, welcoming surroundings. Who wouldn't feel welcome when 4-hooved folks come to great you as you pull up? Just right for a get-away!

Perfect place for a get away!

Charming, spacious and cozy. It was a great way to spend a cold February weekend. The beds were sumptuous, the gas stove delightful. The loft was so clean and simply decorated. Loved it--will be back again!

My husband and I took our first getaway after 13 years of parenting and this was the perfect place for us. The peaceful surroundings and quaint country shop were a delight. We will be back!
