Aunt Daisy's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 3 Kewanee B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 May 2012

Stopped here for a one-night stay on an adventurous journey heading West to the Badlands of South Dakota. Staying in this charming Midwestern house with an 1890s flair made me feel just like an old-time traveler going to explore the American frontier, but relaxing first surrounded by grand comfort in Kewanee before venturing forth into the great unknown. The proximity to trains added the right touch of romance to the atmosphere, and I loved hearing them go by. The furnishings were elegantly clean and beautiful, the breakfast fancy and delicious (including the Yorkshire Gold tea that as it happens, I normally drink at home too), the hospitality helpful and welcoming. Hopefully, my travels will bring me back here again on another trip out West.

I've been to a lot of Bed and Breakfasts over the years, and this is among the best that I've been to. Amazing attention to detail here. Owners Michelle and Glen are the perfect hosts and they are very proud of this Victorian building. I had some of most restful nights in years here, and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious.

The other reviewers are absolutely on target. I don't give out "excellent" ratings very much, but this place truly deserves it.

Don't be put off by the small size (only four guest rooms) because the rooms are really nice and the small size allows Michelle and Glen to cater to anything that you need.

Private bathrooms in each room. I was in the King Suite, which had a HUGE shower and the bathroom was nearly as large as the bedroom.

I was here alone on a business trip, but this would also be perfect for a couple's getaway.

The B&B is within easy walking distance to downtown Kewanee and to the Amtrak station. Even though it's walking distance to the train, Michelle picked me up at the train and gave me a nice orientation tour of Kewanee on our way back to the B&B. You won't need a car if you're going to be downtown for the duration of your trip. I came on the train and I certainly didn't miss my car.

This is also within easy walking distance to Good's Furniture Store, which I mention because this would be the perfect place to stay while in Kewanee for a furniture shopping spree. Good's has its own B&B of sorts but this is much better. (I checked the one at Good's out, too).

There are several other places to stay in Kewanee, but they mostly appear to be of the run down motel ilk. This place is competitively priced, and the breakfasts are included, and its definitely preferable to any of the motels in the area.

Room Tip: The King Suite had a fantastic shower (big enough for two people) and a separate claw feet tub.

We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, some were good, some not so good; Aunt Daisy's goes in the excellent category! Michele and Glen are such incredible hosts; their knowledge of the history and current activities of their town is amazing. From the moment you walk through the door, you're made to feel as if this is "your" home and they have provided every creature comfort necessary. Oddly enough, the thing that made the biggest impression on us was the mini-fridge in the room stocked with bottled water and a variety of sodas. It's such a simple thing, but it's that kind of attention to your needs that makes Glen and Michele so wonderful. Their motto is, "you arrived as a guest and departed as family" and they certainly make this a reality!

Room Tip: King Suite has a GIANT tub

My husband and I went to Bishop Hill and stayed at Aunt Daisy's recently. We had a wonderful time-Michelle and Greg are wonderful, caring hosts. They provided a great room for us, a tasty breakfast, and great company as well. We left with recipes and great memories. We would go back again!

I have stayed at Aunt Daisy's on three separate occasions, and I have always been treated like family.

The rooms are comfortable and quiet, and the breakfasts are a real treat. I have kept this on my list of nearby getaways, and would recommend Glen and Michele's home to anyone passing through the Kewanee area. Actually, come to think of it, it can be a destination all by itself!
