Welcome back to Vrooman Mansion, where history embraces you. Despite this quiet period in time, we have had a fairly busy last couple of months. We have been working on various projects: routine maintenance of the facility and grounds; restorative work such as refinishing the normally bustling kitchen floor and brainstorming about how we can better serve our community and surrounding areas, as Illinois enters each new phase of reopening. We are fortunate to say that we are all safe and well, and the owners and staff at Vrooman Mansion simply miss you, our friendly patrons.
We are absolutely open for business. We are following all guidelines set by the CDC, thoroughly cleaning, sanitizing /disinfecting guest rooms. We are also routinely cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces throughout the properties that are prone to contact. We accommodate our guests’ preference for social distancing during breakfast; for instance, enjoying their full gourmet meal in the cool morning air at one of our three lovely side porch tables. We have taken these extra steps with our guest’s and the staff’s safety in mind. This summer, we plan to host outdoor public events in cooperation with local businesses to be a part of what Illinois’ reopening will be all about. Another movie night on the lawn is on our agenda, as well as happy hours with live entertainment. Don’t forget about allowing us to host one of your own events, however small, utilizing any of our common areas and the grounds.
We understand that there is a plethora of people in different situations that may need our accommodations. Perhaps you are moving and just passing through, on a weekend getaway or honeymoon, just need a break from the little ones or work, still have pandemic cabin fever, or maybe you’re simply looking for something fun and different to do. Let us assure you, the mansion has never looked or felt better in its recent commercial history! We are truly looking forward to meeting you, from a distance of course, and helping you get what you need out of what we have to offer. During times like these, a night away in a big clean house, a casual tricycle ride, a short walk to dinner, massage and smores by the fireplace is all you (or your most special loved one) really may need. We hope to book your stay or event soon.
