Lovely historic property in a quiet setting - beautifully furnished and decorated. Our favorite thing was the guest kitchen/butler's pantry because we needed to be up and away early on the morning we left. Our room had everything we needed, and nothing we didn't need (i.e., there were not a bunch of old-timey knickknacks as sometimes seen in B&Bs).
The Pinehall Inn has wonderful hosts in Ken and Chris. The home is on a lovely and well maintained lot. Great value is offered through the continental breakfast option, with a well stocked kitchen available 24/7. The home also has a number of wonderful public sitting areas. The bathroom in the Somerset Room could use some updating. Given the cost, it is understandable the owners would be hesitant to do a complete bathroom overhaul. but one could start with replacing the tile floor.
I surprised my mom with a lil spur of the moment trip and I booked this bed and breakfast without knowing anything about it and it exceeded my expectations!! This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, and I picked the perfect one. The owners are wonderful people that share lots of history about the house if you like to know about that. We got the deluxe breakfast that was wonderful, wonderful food and wonderful people, it was a great surprise for my mom and I. The Inn has lots of places to just sit and relax. We stayed to the pine room which was perfect for two people to just sit and relax. The rooms all have fridges and t.v.'s and they have a huge dvd collection if you love movies like we do that was a great bonus. I would tell anyone that asks me about a bed and breakfast this one is top notch and would recommend it every time.
My fiance and I were attending a wedding in the Oregon area and I decided I wanted to make this weekend feel more like a true vacation. So we booked at Pinehill and were very pleased. It felt more like a romantic weekend away than just a trip to see his family! From the minute we walked in the owners were super friendly and courteous. The room was absolutely beautiful and I loved the fireplace! If we ever find ourselves in Oregon again for some reason we will definitely be staying here again.
Our stay was relaxing and very enjoyable. The innkeepers where very friendly and informative about the Inn and surrounding area. Our room was outstanding. Very comfortable meeting all our needs. We left feeling we had been visiting old friends. We will return again soon in the future.
From booking the room, to setting our next visit there... to EVERYTHING in between... AMAZING! My wife and I wanted to get away for the first time in a long time and found this gem of a place in a small Illinois town. The room was clean and comfortable. The town has quite a few things to visit... and the shopping square was a huge hit! It was a transformative experience. So impactful that we have decided to make it an annual trip. Ken & Chris are GREAT! They even made accommodations for our desire to stay gluten free. I'm not exactly sure that we can wait until next year to return! Pepe & Floy Cabrera
It's a beautiful house. We weren't there long enough to appreciate it all. Very nice folks & amenities. Inn is located in a small mid-west town on the Rock River that surprisingly has big-time artist connections, such as Alma Mater sculptor Lorado Taft. Chris was as accommodating & friendly as you wanted.
My wife and I stayed here for our 3rd anniversary. These folks run a first rate BB. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend them to anyone staying in the Oregon area. Great property, great hospitality, great amenities, and great cooking. Thank you for having us. You made our trip one to remember!
The building is spectacular! The rooms are so nicely decorated. Our family took over the whole place for my wedding and they were so awesome helping us get situated and everything. The fridge was always stocked with juice and water and muffins and fruit and bagel at breakfast were great. So glad we chose pinehill!!
It was our second stay at Pinehill Inn and we were not disappointed. Chris did everything she could to insure we had a wonderful stay. We especially noticed Chris' keen eye for the smallest detail, not to mention the wonderful hospitality and good food. We shall return ! Chuck & Di
For some reason the scoring grid would not let me check Outstanding for all five categories, so even though it shows only 4's, my rating is all 5's!!! We have stayed at Pinehill twice now and plan to continue. My husband was adamant about never staying in a Bed and Breakfast. At Pinehill, you get the charm of a lovely B&B with the privacy of a hotel with private bath. The Owners are extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms are lovely and the property is just what is needed for a weekend getaway. The optional full-service breakfast is something not to be missed, even though the pantry is available 24/7 with plenty to satisfy you for breakfast or snacks all-day. Pinehill is our place!
We enjoyed our stay so much. Chris is charismatic and charming and an excellent cook! The house is beautiful, well kept and SO clean. We felt welcomed and it was so peaceful there. The common areas are nicely decorated and coming down the staircase kind of makes you feel like you're in "Gone With the Wind." The breakfast was really good and I love that it's at a reasonable 9 a.m. Wish we could have stayed longer! It makes us want to move up north.
This 1874 brick mansion is beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters on the first floor, and we were very pleased with it. Chris met us at the door to welcome us and show us around the inn. The Butler's Pantry serves as the self-serve kitchen for guests who opt for the continental breakfast, or who might want a snack 24 hours a day. A large library of movies on DVD is available at no charge. We loved the casual informality of the inn, and we hope to return.
