Bundling Board Inn Receives Sought-After Distinction

For Immediate Release:  Woodstock, Illinois  -  November 21, 2003

The Bundling Board Inn, Woodstock Illinois, has received sought-after distinction as a member of the Illinois Bed and Breakfast Association (IBBA).   The IBBA was founded in 1987 to serve the State of Illinois as an asset to the Tourist and Hospitality industry.  Before being granted membership, an Inn must pass an on-site inspection and meet a rigorous code of standards that are under continual review by the IBBA Standards Coordinator and Inspectors.  The IBBA quality assurance review program is designed to assure a high level of safety, comfort, cleanliness and hospitality. 

“This is an exciting and rewarding accomplishment for the Inn.  Receiving IBBA certification signifies our commitment to providing our guests the best possible lodging experience,” says Merida and Russell Johns, owners and innkeepers.  “Hospitality and personalized attention to our guests is foremost.  Our desire is that the burdens of today’s modern, face-paced life are forgotten when entering  the serene environment of the Inn,” emphasizes Merida Johns.

Built in the mid-1890’s the Queen Ann Victorian provides an intimate atmosphere where guests feel welcomed and pampered.   Surrounded with antiques, vintage linens, and hand made quilts, guests enjoy a calming retreat in the inn’s well-appointed and charming rooms.  From fresh flowers to scented drawer linings and hand-ironed sheets, every detail to make a guest’s visit memorable has been considered.  Guests awake to the aroma of home-backed breads and muffins that complement a hearty breakfast served on china with linen tablecloths. 

Each of the four guest rooms is named after a woman who lived around the turn of the 20th century and was noted for providing distinctive hospitality.  The guests in each of these rooms can enjoy pictures, books and personal mementoes of each of these women.

“When we made our selection for an Inn location, it was important to us that the community complement the aesthetic we were looking for in offering distinctive hospitality and lodging,” says Merida Johns.  “Woodstock met all of our qualifications.  Located just 3 blocks from the Woodstock village square, our guests can stroll through tree-lined streets and shop and relax in the quaint charm of late 19th century Victorian buildings.   And antique hunting, golfing, and winter and summer sports activities are all available in the area.”

“In the evening there is lots to do in Woodstock”, says Russell Johns.  The beautiful Romanesque-style Opera House  features plays, concerts, and performances throughout the year including the nationally renowned Woodstock Mozart Festival each summer.  And Off Square Music and the Mast House provide an evening of musical excitement and entertainment showcasing the very best folk artists. 

“When all's said and done, we couldn’t have chosen a better place for providing a tranquil get-away from the cares of the every-day world,” adds the Inn’s owners.
