“Cornerstone Inn really is a hidden gem right here in Central Illinois. Being a fan of classic brick buildings, I visited last week for a quick tour and decided to make a reservation for a little "at home/getaway". I was struck by the perfect blend of modern luxury and historic charm. The rooms are spacious, elegant, simple while being full of character - and that natural window light is just - wow. The staff makes the process so simple and easy and it's extremely affordable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone passing through Central Illinois - or locals looking for a cozy change of pace! This is a place that should be on everyone's radar. Thanks Josie and team for running such a quality establishment and representing this area so very well!!”
