Bill and Lynne are extraordinary hosts as this B&B is beautifully maintained (exterior/interior); seven course breakfast is fresh from the garden, nutritious, delicious, exquisitely presented, and enjoyable with great conversation/hospitality; recommended trips to neighboring Amish museum and tour are both educational and relaxing. My mom and I initially made reservations for a weekend retreat at this quaint B&B in the...

As a Guest in the Flower Patch on May Day, I enjoyed a special treat: visits from school children who had been invited to the Flower Patch garden to search for fairy houses. All in good childhood fun, each year on May Day, My husband and I discovered the Flower Patch twenty years ago and stayed there every year attending...

I stayed at the Flower Patch B&B for two nights. It was absolutely wonderful! Bill made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived. I echo what the other reviews mention about breakfast. It was all soooo good but some of it really wasn’t breakfast food. A note about breakfast: the instructions in our room said breakfast is...

My wife and I spent get-away weekend in the Arcola, Illinois, “gateway to the Amish Country.” The area is home to some 4,500 Amish and we went in the middle of October, at the height of harvesting and Fall colors. This was just the weekend we wanted. Slow paced. Relaxed. With lots to see and do. For the “base of...

Our stay in the Diamond House was a very enjoyable. It is a unique experience that we look forward to doing again. The hosts were great and the food was just fabulous.

This was our first B&B we had ever stayed in and it was different but not in a bad way. Our room was very cozy and clean but no tv and since everything closes very early (like 5pm) we got very bored. Breakfast was not my cup of tea (lots of veggies, and flowers and herbs from the garden) where...

We stayed in a beautiful room that had a huge arch window that overlooked the gardens in the back yard. All of the food was wonderful, each dish was decorated with flowers, herbs and greenery from the garden and served on delicate china. The white iron bed was perfect and comfortable. This was a perfect place for the weary travelers...

The Flower Patch and Diamond House B&B's (side by side) are quite a surprise to find in this little berg. Very pretty, nice gardens - and the breakfast is very special with some unique - and delicious - dishes prepared by your host. Don't worry, you will get your Amish sausage along with lots of fruit and vegetables, nice baked...

Incredible experience! While on a day trip we decided to stop for the night since it was late. We were totally unprepared, but they had everything we needed, robes in the closet, shampoo, soap, lotion, hair dryer, etc.. AND it was late at night! What a lovely gem! Clean rooms, gracious host/hostess and an AMAZING, although non-traditional, breakfast that will...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Featured in Midwest Living & Country Sampler, this Victorian B & B offers a lovely downstairs parlor, shaded porch swing, quiet gazebo for tea or coffee & gift shop. The Flower Patch swirls with creative energy. There’s so much to see. Lynn, the Artist in Residence, displays framed porcelain art and watercolors throughout the house. Every room abounds with floral arrangements, crafts, curios and family memorabilia. With floral rugs, potted plans and displays of fresh and dried flowers, it’s always spring at the bed & breakfast. Guests and non-guest alike are welcome to tour the backyard garden, where the Harshbargers grow the herbs used in their epicurean masterpieces. ... more   less

“I would choose a room in the Diamond House. These rooms seemed a little larger and were upstairs from where breakfast was served. Also, this is a B&B so no swimming pool and no fitness center.”
