We found this B&B thru AAA, and were glad of it. We had the entire upstairs all to ourselves since we needed 3 guest rooms, and enjoyed our time there. Joy was friendly and helpful. Her breakfasts were wonderful - tasty, pretty and awesome all rolled in to one. We were there 2 nights so enjoyed two scrumptious breakfasts at...

It would be impossible to describe how idyllic the setting is for the Old Brick Inn.

My husband and I usually stay here when we take our son to a boarding school a few miles from Chrisman. Joy always treats us as if we were her most special guests!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This home was built, by Elisha W. Hartley, between 1886 and 1889 for his wife, Mamie Chrisman, great niece of the town's founding father, Mathias Chrisman. Architects who have stayed at the Inn have agreed that the structure is a "Prairie Foursquare," designed by the Chicago Architect Group which, included Frank Lloyd Wright. Large, oak-paneled foyer, art glass windows, staircase and abundance of oak artwork reflect the design of this period. As our guest, you may expect 21st-Century Conveniences with 19th-Century Elegance. ... more   less
