Americans love Irish hospitality and you don't even have to fly into the Shannon Airport to get some to sustain you. Just trek on up, over, to Ozark, Illinois and there's a little Irish Inn waiting for you, complete with stories by the fire. Samuel Johnson would have been happy here. (He's the one who said - 'There is no private house in which people can enjoy
themselves so well as at a capital tavern... No, Sir; there is nothing
which has yet been contrived by man by which so much happiness is
produced as by a good tavern or inn.' March 21, 1776)
Well it seems that this kind of appreciation is still being expressed about life-giving joyful times at an inn, this time by by Jim and Dei Dei.
"There is so much to thank you for...the list is just too long! Your hospitality, the wonderful breakfasts, lists and directions of places to go and interesting things to do, helping with our genealogy, the entertaining people we met here, and the great conversations every evening by the fire! You are both warm and wonderful. God Bless The Irish Inn!"
After a long cycling day, this guest found heated bathroom floors and wonderful bread at this little New Mexico inn. Although there are many bicycle/bed and breakfast tours available, it's easy to design your own with the help of innkeepers stationed along the way and ready to tend to your re-hydrating and relaxing.
Andy C. said, "I stayed here with my sister as one stop on our cross-country bicycle ride. The lodge was very inviting, with the wood stove by the door and the historic feel of the house. The room we stayed in was clean and very comfortable right down to the heated floors in the bathroom. The hosts were also very gracious, and the bread in the morning was to die for! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone."
