Our Award-Winning Inn in Illinois

Honors, Awards and Media Attention

Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast has been recognized both locally and nationally. We have been honored to receive several awards, including multiple TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence, Jacksonville’s Friend of Tourism Award, Giving Back recognition by The Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP), and local and national garden awards. We were featured in the cover photo and a five-page article in the Holiday 2019 issue of Bed & Breakfast Magazine. We appreciate the recognition of our passion for innkeeping and our heart for hospitality!

The Friend of Tourism Award was presented by the Jacksonville Mayor and the Executive Director of the Jacksonville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. This award was based on nominations from the community, and means a lot to us! We have served on the board of directors for many years and appreciate the support we receive from the JACVB.

AIHP recognized that hospitality and compassion come naturally to innkeepers, and they annually highlighted AIHP members who volunteer in ways that help improved the lives of others outside of the innkeeping industry. We were recognized for our contributions to the lives of children through our longtime support of foster care and adoption. Although we’re no longer fostering, we’re still carrying on our mission. We recently donated $1000 in Blessings Bags containing pajamas, toiletries, games and stuffed animals for children and youth entering foster care. These items were purchased through contributions from our friends and guests at Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast.
