Welcome to Garth Woodside Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn where you will be treated as friends while you enjoy romantic surroundings and attention to detail.

You will find the mansion a
place to slow down, where you will experience a time when life held more journey and less destination.

This private, Victorian estate is nestled on 33 acres of rolling meadows, tall woodlands, and flowered gardens. A must stop, the inn focuses on the warmth and simple beauty provided by nature.  Days can be spent on the veranda admiring the flight of a hummingbird. Or walk the grounds, curl up with a book by the pond. Or sit on the balcony catching a cool breeze.

Relax among original antiques that fill the parlors, library, sitting and dining rooms. Play the 1869 Steinway Square Grand Piano. Savor the solitude of natural surroundings or enjoy beautiful architecture including the famed 'flying staircase.'  Afternoon treats with tea or your favorite beverage are complimentary upon check-in.

By combining the authenticity of a historic-house museum with the friendly warmth of a Bed & Breakfast Inn, Garth Woodside Mansion offers you a very special experience. It is a pleasure to see the glow in faces of couples who have traveled from afar to stay at this award-winning inn.

We offer eight large guest rooms, elegantly appointed with Victorian antiques.

All of our rooms have a private bath.  Each room has a hypo-allergenic featherbed.

We have carefully selected fabrics, materials, and textures to blend with one of the finest 19th century furniture collections in the Midwest.

Charming amenities include nightshirts for you to wear and custom soaps. In such peaceful surroundings, 20th century troubles seem to float away. So come Relax, Rediscover, Rekindle.

The only thing that will lure you out of the wonderful feather beds is going to be the aroma of fresh breads wafting up the flying staircase. Several fresh only fruits are served with the muffins, breads or fresh baked rolls each morning. Always a hot entree and plenty of protein to balance out those carbohydrates and justify the extra servings you might be tempted to

Special needs? No problem, just let us know in advance, we love to spoil our guests. Oh, and of course, nothing but the freshest coffees and teas.
