Galena and Chicago aren’t the only places to find great bed-and-breakfast experiences in northern Illinois.
Visitors seeking unique and luxurious lodging experiences can find an abundance of options, including, in
some instances, right on Chicago’s doorstep:
THE HOMESTEAD 1854 | PLANO
Built in 1854 by the founder of Plano, Lewis Steward, to resemble a Tuscan villa, The Homestead offers five
unique guest rooms in a home listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located 54 miles from
Chicago, but much closer
to Chicago’s west and southwest suburbs, The Homestead offers visitors the options to choose to plunge
into the busyness, recreation and culture offered by the Chicago region, or slip into a more idyllic and quiet
small town, rural experience. The inn boasts “culinary adventures” in partnership with area chefs. And
guests are invited to join the inn’s owner, who is also a yoga instructor, for Candlelight Yoga on Thursdays.
