Might be the nicest place I have ever stayed. The outside is original but the inside has been totally gutted and redone and it is beautiful. The little touches that the owners did are awesome. Snacks and bottles of water on the counter, a pitcher of tea and homemade cookies when we arrived. Fresh flowers in our room. A container of chocolate kisses and candied almonds are available. The breakfast the next morning was delicious. The courtyard in back is beautiful and peaceful. Very convenient walk to village and park. Must stay here if in the area.

Don't waste your time! Nothing but a huge field of grass with a couple of signs. No plaques even saying this is where this was. Not surprising all building are gone but this website makes it look like there are buildings still standing.

My advice is if you want to tour the facility book in advance. We didn't realize how popular this place would be.

Made me appreciate what Lincoln did even more. Visited the house and neighborhood he lived in and the museum. Didn't make it to the library because we spent so much time at the other places. The museum made me realize what he was up against and how hard it had to be for him to take his stand and endure the Civil War. For history buffs I think this is a must see.
