My husband and I usually stay here when we take our son to a boarding school a few miles from Chrisman. Joy always treats us as if we were her most special guests! I'm sure she treats everyone that way! The house is beautiful and old fashioned and decorated so tastefully. The breakfasts are great too, and the price is right! What more could we ask for!?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This home was built, by Elisha W. Hartley, between 1886 and 1889 for his wife, Mamie Chrisman, great niece of the town's founding father, Mathias Chrisman. Architects who have stayed at the Inn have agreed that the structure is a "Prairie Foursquare," designed by the Chicago Architect Group which, included Frank Lloyd Wright. Large, oak-paneled foyer, art glass windows, staircase and abundance of oak artwork reflect the design of this period. As our guest, you may expect 21st-Century Conveniences with 19th-Century Elegance. ... more less
