We stayed at the Branson House B&B when we had a wedding at Hill Prairie Winery in Oakford, IL. The other option was to stay in a hotel in Springfield, IL which would have been a 45 minute drive AND more expensive. We had a lovely room (stayed in Sylvia's Chambers) with a comfortable bed and our own bath, in...

Stayed at Branson House for only one night but could have moved in! Had the choice of staying at a no-tell motel or a B&B while out of town on business in a very small town. This place was the right choice. The house itself is spectacular, and my room was so quaint and peaceful. Everything waw SPOTLESS. So many...

We love Bed & Breakfasts but never know what to expect from various ones we book with for the first time. This bed & breakfast's pictures online were exactly what we were looking for and in a town just as we had hoped. As it turns out after our arrival, this B&B run by the town mayor and his wife...

Our hosts were gracious and delightful, full of lots of local lore (husband John is the local mayor) and had hospitality galore. The house itself, a beautiful 1876 Eastlake mansion, is both affordable and comfortable; the breakfast is hearty...

My 2 friends and I stayed here, and we loved it from the time we pulled up to the house. Norma and John couldn't have made it any nicer than it was. The place is spotless, food fantastic. There was another couple joining us at breakfast, and after the food was served, John and Norma sat down to visit with...

This bed and breakfast is everything a traveler would want it to be. The house itself is delightful and charming. It is almost like a museum with all the antiques. Built in about 1876 makes it like walking into history. It is up on a hill overlooking Petersburg and provides a beautiful view. The grounds contain a beautiful gazebo, outdoor...

We just completed a weekend stay at the Branson B&B, in Petersburg, Ill. My wife and I highly recommended this B&B . It was pleasant, and the hosts were very friendly. Our stay was just like meeting old friends, and the breakfast is outstanding, If the opportunity comes up again for visit in this area we will stay at Branson.
