Midwest Living Review

Karen Sorensen
If you've ever wanted a taste of small-town living — in what had been the house of the richest man in town — Chestnut Street Inn will give you that experience and more.

When Monika and Jeff Sudakov gave up their management careers in the Las Vegas hospitality industry to pursue their dream of opening a bed-and-breakfast, they found the perfect location in tiny Sheffield, Illinois. And what they learned in that previous life is now used to provide guests with a memorable overnight experience. Everything about the Chestnut Street Inn is quality, from the linens on the beds to the gourmet breakfasts. The couple have owned this old mansion for six years, but the place is so well-kept, you'd think they'd just opened last week. The house has just four bedrooms, each with a private bath, and guests have the run of the house, which is tastefully done in period pieces that don't go over-the-top. If you're looking for a memorable dining experience, make a reservation at their restaurant, which serves an evening fixed-price menu that changes daily. Monika is a gourmet chef who uses as many locally grown, in-season ingredients as she can and delights in adding a Mediterranean flair to some of her dishes.
