A George Barber design, located in the heart of Land of Lincoln, this 8 room Select Registry Bed & Breakfast has strong corporate and repeat business.

This architectural masterpiece was built in 1892, a George Barber design #143 in the classic Queen Anne Victorian style, blessed with intricate woodwork, pocket doors, and period style details. Taylorville, Illinois, the county seat, is a modestly size town about 20 miles from the state capital of Illinois, with a National Registry town square and picturesque, family-oriented atmosphere rich in the history and heritage of Abraham Lincoln. With its classic wrap-around porch to welcome guests and 8 guest rooms, all with either gas or electric fireplaces and en-suite baths, this 12 year Select Registry member inn provides many of the guest rooms with double whirlpool tubs, all uniquely appointed.

Taylorville also enjoys a number of large corporations providing this inn with year-round, mid-week business. With a high level of repeat visitors, this inn has a large dining room, two sitting rooms (one of which can double as an additional dining room if desired), large owners quarters and recently renovated kitchen with granite counter-tops and spacious work areas. The large owners' quarters includes a HUGE private bedroom, office space (which could also serve as a 2nd bedroom), bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower, oodles of storage and easy access to the hub of the inn.

A separate Carriage House, currently with two suites and a rentable long-term apartment, is also available separately and can serve as the owner's quarters to add flexibility to the use of the Main House for meeting and conference space. Breaking News! The owners are offering this Carriage House at no charge with the purchase of the Inn...a $175,000 value! A brick single family home across the street is also available separately for future owners desiring additional family space.

Great location, location, location! Great historical Inn! Great owners' quarters! Great business! Great price! What more could any future innkeeper ask for? So if the Bed & Breakfast of your dreams is a historic district inn, with architectural interest, potential for additional growth, area attractions galore, and having strong business activity and occupancy, this is a must see!
