My wife and I stayed at the Parkside B & B over New Year's, while we were in DeKalb visiting family. It was very clean and comfortable and it had everything we needed.

The amount of privacy the guests (and the hosts) have in this lovely spot is terrific. The mother-in-law cottage is fully dressed out with all the comforts of home, plus some extras (chocolates, fruits, a personal note at check-in) (lots of windows) (a tree-lined street) (private entrance). Etc. The bed is great; the bedding is comfortable. The cotton robes lovely.... More

The Parkside B&B is the perfect place to stay while visiting DeKalb. The cottage was spacious and clean and the breakfast was delicious. Pam and Bob went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, including finding a Pack n Play for our baby. A wonderful place to stay.
