This three-room suite is comfortable and spacious; it can easily host two single guests, a family of four, or a small group of girls for a weekend getaway to Bloomington, Illinois. The bedroom reveals a high back burl-wood-posted queen-size bed, an ornamental fireplace with rich undertones, and north and east windows. The adjoining private sitting room – complete with a queen-size sofa bed and Carl Vrooman’s writing desk – is the perfect place to forget your “to-do” list. Carl and Julia would often enjoy afternoon tea in the sitting room, which features a large window seat overlooking the picturesque grounds. The suite offers beautiful views of the shaded gardens, the maple and oak trees, the original Carriage House, and the Lincoln Oak Memorial.

The private attached bathroom features a pull-chain toilet as well as a claw-foot slipper tub with a hand-held showerhead. (Note: If you prefer standing to soaking, please select one of the rooms with a walk-in shower or shower/tub combination.)
