House in the Country

Relaxing Bed & Breakfast... and much more!

About Us

Welcome to the House in the Country, where you can relax, unwind, dream, love, laugh, and soar.

Our property is conveniently located 4.4 miles north of Sterling, Illinois on Route 40 (Hickory Hills Road). Built in 1911, the restored Queen Anne farmhouse is situated on two acres and surrounded by fields, wildlife, and big red barns. Around the property, we have areas to relax in some unusual places. Explore them all and find your favorite!

Guests can sip a warm drink on the front veranda or on the back deck while watching a country sunset. Unwind with a book in the library. Play a tune on the vintage piano. Soak your troubles away in the antique claw foot tub.

We can accommodate up to 12 guests in four comfortably appointed guest rooms.  Rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

Stay at House in the Country and enjoy an eclectic collection of comforts!
