The Champaign Garden Inn is a stunning Victorian Queen Anne style mansion built in 1901. Located in the Sesquicentennial neighborhood, our Champaign IL Inn is centrally located and walking distance to the recently re-developed Downtown area.
When you arrive at the Inn the first thing you will notice is the gardens. We have numerous garden beds and grassy areas surrounding the Inn, designed to bloom throughout the season. The expansive wrap around porch and wicker furniture provide a perfect place to sit and enjoy the gardens.
Through the front door you will be greeted by your innkeeper, Kevin Allen, and our two adorable doggy mascots, Dasher and Princess. Running the Inn is our full-time passion, so we will be available to provide area information, restaurant reservations, or in the case of the doggies, make themselves available for scratches and love.
On the main level you’ll find the living room, sitting room, dining room and kitchen. The furnishings were selected with your comfort in mind, and hopefully you’ll have some time to enjoy the first floor. There is a 55 inch flat screen smart TV in the living room furnished with modern soft seating. The dining room was designed with separate seating so you can choose to socialize or be by yourself while having your morning coffee and breakfast. The dining room is also a great place to spread out your projects and work while you’re here. Complimentary commercial grade WIFI is broadcast throughout the entire house and perimeter to ensure you always stay connected.
Guest Room Lodging at Our Champaign IL Bed and Breakfast
The guest rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. All of our guest rooms have been designed for your comfort and equipped with the modern amenities that guests have come to expect. All of our beds are Bemco Presidential pillow top beds. These are the most comfortable beds I’ve ever come across. Comphy brand linens, pillows and comforters dress the beds in soft luxury. Turkish towels and top of the line amenities continue the spa like experience to the bath. The furnishings are a mixture of antiques and more modern pieces. Every decision was made to ensure your maximum comfort.
The 2nd floor rooms, Chicago and Champaign, are our more traditional style rooms. Elaborate wall coverings and rich colors are reminiscent of the Victorian era. King size beds, WiFi and flat screen smart TV’s provide the connection to modern times. These are really large rooms with plenty of room to relax in.
On the third floor the rooms have more of a modern feel. They are named for cities in the Bay Area … my home for the last twenty years. The largest is the San Francisco room which has two bedrooms – one king and one full size beds. The Santa Barbara room has a king bed, whirlpool tub and private bathroom with standing shower. The Berkeley room, our most affordable room, has a queen size bed and private detached bath located directly across the hall. Of course, the third floor rooms also have WiFi and flat screen smart TV’s. If you like a more modern feel these are the rooms for you.
No matter which room you choose, I am sure you’ll love the Inn and the surrounding area. If you have any questions, or of there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
