Of course, being a former antique shop, there are plenty of pieces that complement the period of the home. Decor aside, the beauty of the home’s architecture speaks for itself. The ceilings in the downstairs reach 12 feet high and 10 feet high in the upstairs. There is plenty of original charm, like the pocket doors that separate the library and dining room, and the grand, winding staircase leading to the second floor. Peak season at The Tiskilwa Inn runs from April to October. The inn can also be booked for special occasions and holiday dinners. Jeremy said the inn attracts many guests from cities such as Chicago, Quad Cities and Peoria. “It’s people who literally just want to spend the day in quiet. They want to come out, rock on the porch and listen to the birds,” he said. Guests can choose a unique farm/stay option with the inn’s sister property, Tiskilwa Farms Alpacas. The option includes breakfast at the inn and a day on the alpaca farm up the road. A hot tub room is available to guests year-round. Kayak and bike rentals are available for those who wish to kayak the creek or bike the countryside roads. “We offer a lot of things,” Jeremy said. “If our guests are looking for a certain experience, we will do whatever it takes to give them that experience.”
