Relax on 17 wooded acres in this beautiful circa 1901 Victorian farmhouse, eight miles north of Ottawa, Illinois. Enjoy fresh country air, walking in the woods, bird-watching, sitting in the rocking chairs on More the front porch, and our hot, home-cooked breakfasts! Skydiving and canoeing, Starved Rock State Park just minutes away! Please call for availability. We also offer weekly rates for travelers, and the entire B&B can be reserved for your gatherings, or reserve the second floor for you and your guests. Five guest rooms that can sleep 14 guests. Great place to stay with your friends and family. Lots of history here, as the original family settled here in 1829. Charles Lindbergh's mail plane crashed on the property 6 months prior to his transatlantic flight, and Mr. Lindbergh spent two nights at the B&B. Hope to see you soon! Less

We chose the Fox River B&B for its proximity to Starved Rock State Park, and for the history of staying in Charles Lindbergh's Room. The home and the hostess (Charlotte) were both warm and welcoming. We were a bit concerned about sharing a bathroom, but...More
