The Old Church Inn was built in the 1800's. The building has experienced history that has converted the "church" aspects to a truly magnificent home.
The Inn does not have multiple accomodations like other larger B&B's and here is where the difference lies:
The guests have complete access to the lower and upper floor of the Inn from the front view of the home. Exquisite furnishings, a dining room, grand staircase and a library nook accessed by a ladder complete the entrance. Take the grand staircase to the second floor and the guests find deliciously soft bed (Double). This may be the minor weakness for the Inn. The softness of the bed would have been an issue for my husband; however, I was there for business in Peoria. I slept within minutes of nesting into the bed. My husband would most likely have a back issue due to the softness of the bed.
For three days, I had a separate sunny room decorated to delight the senses in a beach theme where I set up my computers, printer, phone, etc. It was perfect for keeping up with business. Complementary Tea, soda, cookies, bottled water, popcorn, microwave and refrigerator were most welcome.
Late at night, I would run a hot bath, soaking away the day in the jacuzzi. Bath salts and body lotion were provided.
Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Holly and Dean are careful to determine and food issues prior to your visit.
We are frequent B&B travelers. This is by far the best I have ever experienced. The spacious home, virtually all to yourself, very soft classical music in the library loft...Get out some piano books and see what you remember from your piano lessons as you enjoy the beauty and tone of the Kawai piano.
Thank you, Holly and Dean, for this treasured home experience. Your hospitality and the detailed comforts were amazing; your listening ear to a frazzled traveller was an added comfort during difficult times. What more can I say. This historic home exudes everything one could ever ask for adventurers, lovers and/or weary travellers.
Call ahead. Holly and Dean will accomodate your needs.
