Guest Review from Brooklyn, Michigan

I am traveling with my Mom from Brooklyn, Michigan to Carbondale, Illinois to see my daughter graduate from SIU with her Masters Degree.   

I decided to go a little out of our way to treat my mom for Mother’s Day and her birthday to our first B&B. What a beautiful place. We really enjoyed learning the history!

The Masters Chamber Room

If you have a taste for the finer things in life, you will appreciate the elegance and luxury of our Bloomington, Illinois bed and breakfast. The Master’s Chamber Room, located at the top of the grand staircase, is a haven of comfort and style. With its large mirrored armoire, queen-size bed, antique sofa, marble top dresser, and ornamental fireplace, this room is designed for your ultimate relaxation and enjoyment.



You will feel like royalty as you step into the Master’s Chamber, which has been lovingly replicated to its original décor, but with modern amenities to ensure your comfort. The private bathroom, across the hall, comes complete with a claw-foot tub/shower combination and a large sunflower showerhead, which is a delightful reminder of a bygone era. 

And with complimentary toiletries, hair dryer, and luxurious robes to borrow during your stay, you can indulge in a little pampering every day. 


The Masters Chamber also happens to be a favorite among bridal parties due to the abundant natural light, bright colored walls and rug, and perfectly placed mirrored armoire for unique photographs.
