Rediscover the art of hospitality at Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast, in Jacksonville, Illinois. A short drive from Springfield, we are located in the prestigious Duncan Park/West State Street historic district in Jacksonville, one block from Illinois College, Duncan Park and the Governor Duncan Mansion, and the Illinois School for the Deaf. This beautiful century-old home has been magnificently restored and its strong architectural details include a carved staircase, five distinctly different tiled fireplaces, pocket doors, natural wood floors and stunning chandeliers in every room.

An inviting wrap-around porch welcomes you to the entry where you will be received into the grand foyer showcasing the original carved Victorian staircase. Beautiful music wafting from the baby grand player piano may draw you into the front parlor before you climb the stairs to find your beautifully appointed guest suite on the second floor. Each unique suite features a fireplace, a full private bath en suite (attached) and a private sitting room (attached). This gracious home is furnished with a mix of past and present, offering all of the comforts of home in an elegant departure from standard hotel rooms. Furnishings are traditional in style and comfortable by design. High tech meets high style as you find your digital satellite television and DVD player behind closed doors. High-speed internet is available throughout the home.

We are a deaf-friendly Bed & Breakfast, equipped with all the basics to make your time away from home both secure and comfortable. In addition to standard signalers, we have an amplified phone, TTY and a video phone available for your use while you're here. Our goal is to provide pampered luxury to delight both business and leisure travelers. Whether your desire is to soak your cares away in the claw-foot slipper tub in Tranquility's marble spa bathroom, catch up on all your magazines in your own private sitting room, or just sit and watch night fall from the wicker chairs on the front porch, you'll find a calm and relaxing environment throughout our home. If you need to do business while you're here, take time to take care of yourself. It's all in a day's work as you meet with a colleague or use the business center in the library, then put it all aside and go for a walk or run through our quiet residential neighborhood.

Awesome!!!!! The place was absolutely beautiful. My wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding and we are both glad we stayed. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. Small snacks and drinks are provided by your room. The atmosphere is very romantic and the bed was super comfy. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were super nice. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something better than the typical hotel suite.

We loved staying at Blessings. A loving family eager to meet your needs makes this B&B very special. Val, the youngest assistant innkeeper was a delight with the wonderful tour upon our arrival. Accomodating our friends in the drawing room after a delicious dinner at Lonzerotti's was above and beyond. Breakfast was delicious and the snack area was well stocked. The beds were super comfortable and we will stay again when we visit Jacksonville. Blessings is a great asset to the Jacksonville area..

Blessings on State is truly a blessing. The innkeeper and her family provide a warm, friendly and caring atmosphere that puts you at ease right away. The rooms are first rate with comfortable beds, clean surroundings, and wonderful home made food. The Inn's proximity to Illinois College (1 block) adds to the convenience of staying here for campus events or visiting a son or daughter at school. We will stay here again and have recommended Blessings on State to our friends.

The fresh homemade waffles with fresh fruit was excellent. We will definitely stay again at the Bed and Breakfast in the future. The Serenity room was comfortable and relaxing with the fireplace made it even more so Thanks to Gwenn and her family the weekend was fantastic.

Blessings on State is the BEST B&B I have stayed in!! The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing and the breakfast was amazing! Jacksonville has alot to offer history "buffs" and Blessings is the absolute perfect "home base"! I highly recommend this B&B whether you are in the area for business or pleasure. My only regret is that my stay could not be longer!

This was our first night at a bed and breakfast so we were not sure what to expect. Our stay was superb! The innkeeper opened her home to us and made us feel very welcome. The home was beautiful and accommodations outstanding. She also shared the history of the home and her family with us over a delicious breakfast.
