Find comfort and friendship at a Western Illinois bed and breakfast during your trip to ‘Forgottonia!' Instead of looking to Western Illinois hotels for your visit, choose one of our area inns. Our B&Bs offer the perfect atmosphere and getaway during your exploration of our 14-county region between the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers. The area, founded as a protest to inequality in state and federal transportation and industry funding, historically became “forgotten” after bills to bring development to the area were defeated in the 1960s and 1970s. Without this funded development, Western Illinois counties and towns took on a more relaxed atmosphere and lived at a much slower pace than the governmentally developed areas in Illinois.
The best of Western Illinois lodging is offered at our member inns, which reflect much of this area's quiet, peaceful lifestyle. Even if you decide to visit the city, these sanctuaries welcome you back to the harbor of friendly hospitality. While not overtly rich or developed, the towns and citizens of Western Illinois share a sense of place and self not often seen in today's modern rush. From rolling farmland to riverside life, our towns have a firm hold of their historic roots, and this unique atmosphere makes Western Illinois the perfect getaway from the stresses of life.
Our villages and towns span in atmosphere from historic restoration, to those on the brink of complete modernization. In one town you may expect to see Revolutionary figures, in another you might expect to see Aunt Bee and Opie, and in yet another you might wonder when the next big-box store might be built. The variety of life here in Western Illinois will bring you back again and again to our array of lifestyles and attractions. The Illinois Bed and Breakfast Association can direct you to the perfect inn for each visit to Western Illinois. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful region!

Stay at a bed and breakfast in Southern Illinois for an indulgent stay in Illinois' Wine Country!
A bed and breakfast in Southern Illinois is the perfect retreat during your visit. While Southern Illinois has many towns to discover and explore, there are three notable draws of our area: Southern Illinois University, the area wineries, and Shawnee State Forest.
Southern Illinois University in Carbondale is the home of the Salukis. SIUC offers over 170 possible degrees, with several nationally recognized programs and is known as an Elite University and a top research college in the country.
Southern Illinois is home to over 25 beautiful and distinct wineries. Three main self-guided wine trails are known in the area: The Southern Illinois Wine Trail, the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, and the Wabash Valley Wine Trail. Illinois also hosts many wine festivals, and Southern Illinois towns are key destinations for these events.
The 270,000 acre Shawnee State Forest is a major national park destination in the southeast corner of Illinois. Offering picnic areas, camping, hiking, horseback riding, ATV trails, fishing, hunting, and boating, the Shawnee State Forest has something for every lover of the outdoors.

Helpful tips for B&B Travelers
As a Bed & Breakfast Traveller, Here are Some Things You'll Want to Know:
1. Ask lots of questions of the innkeeper: Every inn is different and so are their policies.
2. Confirm that breakfast is included, and what is usually served: If you have special dietary restrictions, please advise the innkeeper in advance.
3. Ask for clarification of their cancellation policy: Many of our inns are small, and rely on advance bookings to keep their rooms full. In the unfortunate event you'd have to cancel, what happens to your deposit?
4. Policies on smoking, pets, and children vary considerably: Be sure to clarify your needs over the phone . . .it will make both you and the innkeeper more comfortable.
5. Some Bed & Breakfasts have shared bath facilities: If the inn you are considering falls into that category, you may want to know how many guests will potentially be using the same restroom.
6. Be sure to obtain a map and/or written directions to the inn: Get their exact street address and take their phone number with you. Maps found on the internet can be helpful, but may not be accurate enough to get you to the doorstep.
