Places to Stay

Make a weekend stay out of your farm dinner experience

We often have dinner guests coming from out of town looking for places to stay before or after the farm dinner. Several of our out-of-town guests have recommended a couple of bed and breakfast establishments.

Sylvia's Irish Inn in Urbana is lovely restored Victorian house.   Here is a review from one of our recent dinner guests:

"We very much enjoyed our stay at Sylvia’s Irish Inn.  The building itself is a very nice historic Victorian style.  The proprietors – Sylvia and Ernie – create a very nice, informal atmosphere.  The food was very good – albeit not local, organic and biodynamic.  I guess when comparing food to other mass production food models it is very good.  It does not hold a candle to the farm dinner, but I personally would not expect it to rival the best meal that I eat every year.  One thing that someone should be aware of prior to booking a room is that there are shared bathrooms, which I found clean and convenient - some rooms may have private baths.  Overall, I enjoyed my stay, and it will be my first choice when I am in town."

The Avenue Bed and Breakfast on West University Avenue, downtown Champaign, is a historic restored mansion. Although we haven't stayed there nor do we have reviews from any of our guests, the owners feature luxurious accommodations and serve local food breakfasts. Who can beat that?

Champaign Garden Inn, another B& B also located in downtown Champaign has excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. 

NEW IN 2018--A FARM B&B in Mahomet (approx. 15-20 minute drive from our farm)

To complete your farm-to-table experience, consider booking a reservation with nearby Moon Grove Farm, a farmhouse B&B located in Mahomet, IL. Opening Memorial Day weekend 2018, Moon Grove caters to small groups with their three-bedroom rental and breakfast package set on a 4-acre, small-scale farm. 

Your reservation includes three bedrooms, each outfitted with a queen-sized bed, soft sheets and countryside views, with a private full bathroom on the second story of the farmhouse. Your private entrance off of the side porch overlooks an herb garden bordered by a white picket fence. In the evenings, your hosts partitions off the living room with french doors, to offer more privacy and space to relax. Or step outside for a stroll and take in bright, starry nights. 
 
In the morning, breakfast awaits you in the dining room including fresh eggs, bacon, biscuits and jam, fresh fruit, coffee and juice. Where possible, items served are locally sourced such as Page Roastery's coffee beans, Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery’s cheese or peaches from our own backyard.
 
Moon Grove is about a 20 minute drive from Prairie Fruits Farm. For an additional fee, Moon Grove's hosts offer transportation to and from events at Prairie Fruits Farm.
