The space

In old downtown Vienna, this historic hotel built in 1896 provides homey atmosphere with a touch of the old original charm, filled with antiques from the past and items from the present. Vienna is the Bicycle Capital of Illinois, in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest, a deer hunters dream, close to the So. IL Wine Trail and close to Ferne Clyffe State Park. Our Inn is the perfect place for a couple's getaway or a group of friends or family to come and stay together and enjoy all of what Southern Illinois has to offer

Kathy's place was a good place for a nights stay. There's is a public space for TV and tasty desserts and snacks available. The walls are on the thin side since it's an older building, so I would suggest bringing ear plugs/ headphones.

Joy, in order to help me do a better job of hosting, I notice that you gave the "check-in" and "cleanliness" a 4 star rating. I was wondering if you could tell me what was wrong so that I can do a better job. Thanks, I would very much appreciate a reply....Kathy
