It’s hard to imagine anything more delightful than relaxing on the patio at the Timmermann House Bed & Breakfast in Clinton County, Illinois.
The B&B is located in a former farmhouse, just outside of Aviston, Illinois. Babe is the resident four-legged greeter; Sandy Timmermann is owner-innkeeper and a talented gardener besides. The beautifully remodeled home, double the size of the original 1940’s house, sits amid a beautifully landscaped yard—awash in color this time of year—and offers all the comforts you want for a weekend or night away.
Inside the B&B, you’ll find the warmth of a welcoming home, thanks to delightful personal touches throughout. In the lower level, note the beautiful mural depicting a cabin on a lake. It was painted by Sandy’s mother, as was a pretty floral picture in the living room.
The B&B offers two bright and cheery guest rooms, designed for comfort. Each has a private bath and pampering luxuries, such as quality Comphy sheets, plush robes, Turkish towels, and flat screen TV’s. Guests will find homemade cookies on the kitchen counter, and enjoy full course gourmet breakfasts featuring fresh ingredients from the B&B’s own gardens. All the makings for a restful—and delicious!—stay.
Adding to the pleasures of visiting Timmermann House are its beautiful award-winning gardens, bursting with flowers and a bounty of produce. The B&B hosts its own Farmers Market, featuring asparagus and strawberries in spring, a multitude of vegetables in summertime, and pumpkins in the fall.
