The Staycation | Harrison House Bed & Breakfast

At the beginning of the summer I had the pleasure of staying at Harrison House Bed & Breakfast located in Downtown Naperville. The B&B is a "late-Victorian" home built around 1904. I decided to take a few days off for a "staycation" and the B&B seemed like the perfect match. My wonderful assistant, Rachel and I stayed in the "Victorian Suite" and enjoyed strolling around Naperville in between exploring the many rooms of the B&B. What attracted me to Harrison House is the historical aspect. I am a lover of all things antiques and history, so naturally, I gravitated towards this lovely establishment versus the newly built hotels in the area. Plus, I like the personalization and attentiveness of the smaller venue. My stay at Harrison House was nothing less than luxurious. A queen size Tempur- Pedic, a plethora of movies, the soaking tub, allergy friendly breakfast options, and a cozy front porch to lounge- oh my! I was so sad when I had to get back to real life and leave this cozy place. My heart still remains and the B&B. I think overall my favorite thing about Harrison House is the friendliness of everyone. From the guests to the staff, there was a constant smile perched on each individual's face- especially around breakfast.

The Victorian Room


One of the most difficult things when traveling for me, is coordinating meals with to accommodate my food allergies. I am gluten and peanut free. Most hotels have minimal options for allergy friendly snacks/ meals. I was over the moon when I saw on Harrison House's website that they cater to allergies/ dietary restrictions. I was a bit nervous about breakfast but my nerves were eased when Debi brought out the Pinterest worthy plate. Breakfast easily became the part of the morning I looked forward to the most.

I had the chance to explore two other rooms in the B&B. The others sadly were housing guests, but I can image they are as equally stunning as the guest rooms I was able to see.
