Welcome to Aunt Daisy's B&B
Located in Henry County in north central Illinois, Aunt Daisy's is a Bed Breakfast that serves both a good night's sleep and a memorable breakfast, all within an 1890 Midwestern home. The home was built in the 1890s by Mary Quirk and her brother. They willed the home to the Catholic Church in 1911 and it served as the rectory until 1988.
Many weddings were performed here over the years. Photos of some of the weddings are featured on the staircase to the second floor. Elaborate woodwork, stained glass, and an extensive collection of antiques complement the homes interior. Relax in your room, read a book in the library or enclosed porch, or take in some sun in the gazebo. Explore the music room, where you will find a fully functional 1929 player piano.
Relax in your guest room, where the modern conveniences haven't been forgotten. We welcome both business and leisure guests. Each room contains a king size bed with luxurious high threadcount sheets, outside telephone line, cable TV with VCR, desk, wireless internet capability and a small refrigerator. Complementary bottled waters and soft drinks are included in your room. There is an assortment of popular video titles available at no charge. Most importantly, central heat and air conditioning are controlled within your room. Each room has its own bathroom with either a shower or clawfoot bathtub.
Our goal is to provide choices to make your stay exactly what you want it to be!

Aunt Daisy's is only 2 blocks from downtown Kewanee, where the popular Good's Furniture store is located. Goods is the premier furniture store for the northern half of the state. Good's occupies several buildings in downtown Kewanee, and is a must see when you visit. The Iowa gambling boats are a 40 minute drive west. 5 miles north on Route 78 is Johnson Sauk Trail State Park, where hiking, fishing and picnicking are available. Bishop Hill, a 19th century Swedish Settlement, is also nearby. The local theater shows first run movies nightly, and is within walking distance. Antique shopping as well as local auctions can be found in Kewanee and several other small towns in the area. Golfing at the Kewanee Country Club or the Kewanee park golf course can be arranged with advance notice. Both are excellent courses, with less traffic and better rates than most golfers are used to!
