Which part of s’mores are best? Chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers… or enjoying them with the person you love at a luxurious bed & breakfast?
We think the latter, and so do Morgan & Brendan who chose a romantic getaway close to home! They stayed in the luxurious Letitia’s Suite on the 2nd floor of the mansion and indulged in the fall package which included s’mores and other fall goodies to upgrade their stay.

Guest Review from Normal, Illinois
“I’ve been coming here around Christmas time every year for as long as I can remember with my dad. Today I came here with my boyfriend for a night away. As always, it’s a wonderful stay. This room… we never stayed in, so it’s a new little treat!
We got the fall package with hot cocoa, s’mores, brownies and a caramel apple. It was the best! Can’t wait to see what’s for breakfast! I hope everyone who stays here after me has just as an amazing time as I always have!
Enjoy that AMAZING shower!!
Thanks, Morgan + Brendan <3″
Letitia’s Suite & Sitting Room
Letitia’s Suite is a special place to stay, perfect for people who like charming and unique accommodations. It’s named after the sister of the original owner, Julia Scott and is adorned in purple accents. The room is beautifully decorated with old-fashioned items including a peacock tapestry, vintage clothing and hats, and a collection of hatpins. The queen sized oak bed and marble top dresser add to this majestic decor.
Next to the main room, there’s a private sitting room where you can relax. It has a comfortable sofa bed, and an armoire with a television. The rooms face west, so it’s nice and quiet if you want to sleep in. But be careful, the delicious smell of breakfast might make it hard to stay in bed!
Luxurious Private Bathroom
Each overnight suite at the Mansion and Carriage House come with their own private bathroom. Letitia’s private bath is attached to the main bedroom and boasts a luxurious walk-in shower with a special rain shower head and body sprays. It feels like stepping back in time but with modern things to make your stay comfortable.
Indulge in the Extras
Every overnight stay comes with a full gourmet included breakfast, and free snacks and beverages in the coffee closet at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor. But what it you want s’more? Or s’mores even?! We offer upgrades to add to your stay that include charcuterie, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, s’mores, caramel apples, and more. You can add a massage, rent a bike, request fresh flowers, or even book a local wine tasting!
