Dating back to 1854, the Chestnut Street Inn is not just a romantic escape for couples who love to immerse themselves in rich history. It's also the perfect Illinois destination for those who simply love cuisine too.


Most inn descriptions start with the property, or the rooms. Here, we'll start with the breakfast.


Every morning, guests will welcome the day with Mediterranean inspired menus created by Chef Monika - who also happens to be one of the innkeepers alongside Jeff (he makes the amazing coffee). Using local produce, you might find yourself tucking into Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict, Elvis Toast with Candied Bacon, or French Toast stuff with Lemon Curd and Goats Cheese.


Hungry yet?


You might even want to stay for the special prex-fixe dinner, which is an additional cost but simply divine. You can always add this an additional package.


Chestnut Street Inn features two rooms and two suites, ensuring you are given the upmost attention during your stay, and not lost in a sea of guests. Each room/suite offers something unique, with individual decor making their character shine.


The Redwood Suite is perfect for romance, with it's King sized bed and crackling fireplace, perfect for those cooler nights and that glass of wine.


The Blue Room surrounds you with warm blue, yellow and white tones, with speciality china adorning the walls. The Burgundy Room is decorated in bold and rich reds, dark blues and dark greens, with an almost grand European feel, and the Green Room offers that bit more space with it's two bedrooms, and an amazing sitting porch for you to just unwind on with you tea or champagne.


Whether you want to explore the sights of the local area with the historic attractions, shopping, and great outdoors, you might want to instead do absolutely nothing. If that's the case, Chestnut Street Inn has you covered.


Enjoy some books from the library. Challenge each other with the puzzles and games available. Sit back and enjoy the 1000s of DVDs in their collection.


Chestnut Street Inn is a place where it's all about you, so unwind, relax, and re-charge together.


They offer free snacks and beverages in the pantry.
