Welcome to The Senator’s Inn, where we offer clean, friendly, and affordable accommodations for those seeking a “home away from home.” In this day of hustle and bustle, it is rare to find a sanctuary away from it all, but at The Senator’s Inn, a sanctuary is precisely what we aim to provide. The relaxing atmosphere is continually lauded by many guests as one of the most tranquil places they have ever been. It has often been described as “homey.” The expansive mansion, built in 1915 and once inhabited by Senator Henry M. Dunlap, is home to guest rooms available for a night, week, month, or as some guests have put it, “I’m here to stay.” Whether you are here for business or pleasure, short-term or long-term, The Senator’s Inn is a unique, inviting solution to both your accommodation woes and troubles of other kinds. We are located less than five minutes’ drive from the University of Illinois and Willard Airport.
The sprawling, 25-room house has four dedicated guest rooms for your convenience. The third floor, (also known as The Senator's Retreat) has been host to many long-term stay guests from all over the world, as it offers spacious accommodations including two bedrooms (one with a Jacuzzi), a full bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, large living room (complete with additional sleeping options) and a private entrance at the rear of the house.
Due to the fact that we have such a loyal following, we recommend making reservations well in advance of your expected arrival date to ensure availability.* Families and friends from all over the world have gathered to spend their nights enjoying peace that only a historic venue can offer. We hope to see you soon!
