We are honored to be able to provide a unique historic backdrop for families, friends, and colleagues as you celebrate and create your next historic moments with us. Whether you soak in all the history as you check in for your overnight stay, or you reserve the mansion for a wedding, office party, or reunion with friends… we are happy to be your destination in Bloomington-Normal!
As a business that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, some assume we’re a museum to tour, but they don’t realize we are an active and vibrant bed and breakfast, preserving our vintage historic site with modern amenities so that you can rent the mansion for your next event, or choose to stay overnight to celebrate. And because of our gourmet bed and breakfast accommodations, it means that we can turn your special event into something even more memorable as you lead up to the big day and wind down afterward!
