We recently enjoyed a great stay at the Great House while my son was visiting Knox College. The Great House was the perfect place to stay as it is conveniently located near to the college and downtown. It also is located in a neighborhood well suited to a nice evening stroll.
The house itself is a gem and is very well appointed for the guest. We stayed in the Lincoln Room and it was great. Bring a couple of pennies to leave on the mantle and peruse the many Lincoln pictures, busts and books in the room.
Betty was an engaging host, providing us with a tour and history of the house and my wife and I both enjoyed longer conversations with her during our stay which were delightful. Breakfast was very good and filling, easily taking us to a dinner that evening.
