This is an in-town B & B but it is quite and relaxing. We have stayed at several B&Bs in the last few years and some we would never return to. Sidwell Friends is one we will return to as often as our travels permit. After just a few minutes Larry is an old friend. His breakfasts are to linger over in order to enjoy it all.

This B&B is wonderful. If ever in the Mt. Vernon, Ill. area - you won't be disappointed staying at Sidwell Friends. It is a lovely home located in a quiet neighborhood, beautifully decorated in the colonial style. The beds were outstandingly comfortable. High end bath products were offered. I loved the tea/coffee available 24/7 on upstairs landing (just steps from bedrooms). Larry was a gracious host, who not only made us feel welcome - but made a delightful breakfast which could have been featured on the cover of any gourmet magazine. Sidwell Friends is 'Understated Elegance' at its best.

Larry was a wonderful host. The house was absolutely beautiful and wonderfully kept. My wife and I had a wonderful wedding night here. Larry gave us a discount on our stay when he found out it was our wedding night. That was an extra special treat for us.

We have enjoyed scores of Bed and Breakfasts, in the U.S. and Europe. What a surprise to find that a B&B in the small town of Mt. Vernon, IL is now among our three favorites: a small chateau in France, an inn in CT, and now Sidwell Friends. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Check on in-room baths. Our bath was just a step away in the hall, and was wonderful: warming racks for the towels, etc. The larger of the three rooms has an in-room bath with jacuzzi.

I am more familiar with hotels (four continents) than B&Bs, but Mr. Sidwell's establishment was welcoming, organized, very clean, gorgeous, quiet, well-priced, and provided delicious multi-course served breakfasts. And the Dunaven bath was a delight!

Sidwell Friends B&B earned my highest recommendation.
