The Summers Family found “the most outstanding place to stay, eat and be” for their daughter’s wedding when they chose Vrooman Mansion during a previous Christmas season.
With some family traveling all the way from San Diego, CA they discovered the 7 guestrooms all decorated with Christmas trees added to the character of a vibrant mansion. We provided them with the perfect place to prepare, stay overnight and say “I Do.”
“We cannot express enough how wonderful, beautiful & a historic gem this house is!! You feel like you’re are home when you are here!”

Guest Review from San Diego, California
23rd December – As I sit inside the Master Suite of this wonderful home, I can’t help but be brought back to the 1800s- every room is just wonderful! Our daughters are in Julia’s & Letitia’s Rooms while our oldest daughter will be using Carl’s Suite to get dressed for her wedding!
The house is so warm and cozy despite its enormity! The Christmas Trees in each room of the house are just exquisite! The aroma from the kitchen for breakfast just makes you want to hop out of bed & get there so you don’t miss a thing!
24th December – Wedding Day – Everything is perfect. The staff, the wonderful rooms, the atmosphere- it doesn’t get any better than this! We cannot express enough how wonderful, beautiful & a historic gem this house is!! You feel like you’re are home when you are here!
25th December – Christmas Day at Vrooman Mansion has been the BEST!! Thank you for welcoming us into your home- thank you for showing its history! Thank you for the wonderful food. You truly are the most outstanding place to stay, eat and be in Bloomington!!
With Warm Regards & the Very Best of Wishes for the Year to Come!! Merry Christmas!
