Innkeepers Jeremy and Ric Gassen strive to provide an experience tailored to the needs of their guests. After spending years in the corporate hotel industry, the Gassens realized they wanted to provide a more personalized experience for guests, so they dove into the bed and breakfast industry. They spent six years in Virginia running their first property before meeting Tiskilwa native Bob Sash, who was looking for innkeepers to run his newly restored inn. Being from the Midwest, the Gassens jumped at the opportunity to be closer to family. Before it was a bed and breakfast, the inn was a local antique store for 40 years. Each of the five bedrooms in the home has its own unique theme. The Wappe Room gives a nod to the Potawatomi Tribe, the original settlers of the area. The Zen Room is decorated in an Asian motif. The Garden Room is always in bloom with floral decor. The Farmhouse Room offers a rural, rustic feel. The Alpaca Room is a whimsical tribute to the nearby alpaca farm. The front library, which welcomes guests through the grand entrance, has a coastal theme, which is tied to the Gassens’ Virginia roots. Continued on page 13

The formal dining room has photos from the past families who lived there and antiques. The home was an antique shop for nearly 40 years before it was an inn.
