Stunning, old world charm with modern conveniences is how we would describe the Cherry Tree Inn Bed & Breakfast in Woodstock, IL. Made famous by a movie feature, the Cherry Tree B & B is more than a movie set. Built in the 1800’s, this nearly 7,000 Victorian home is owned and operated by George & Lori. George & Lori like to create experiences for their guests. This could include cocktails in the sitting room, a massage from the on-site professional masseuse to a customized breakfast to fit any dietary requirements. If you’re headed to Woodstock, IL you simply must stay at the Cherry Tree Inn Bed & Breakfast

Cherry Tree Inn Bed & Breakfast is made famous by the 1993 movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray would wake up and repeatedly walk down the stairs of this house. Movie buffs might be asking, ” But didn’t Groundhog Day take place in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania?”. “YES” however, it was filmed in Woodstock IL. This is in large part due to the director of the film, Harold Ramis, and actor Bill Murray is from the Chicago area so they could film and be close to family during production. So it was this house that “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher repeated every morning at six o’clock on February 2nd until Phil got the day right from the bedroom in the house. The Cherry Tree Inn B & B is much more than a movie set. It’s a beautiful home with wonderful hosts that will make your visit to Woodstock, IL anything but a Groundhog Day.
Betcha didn’t know: Bill Murray is part owner of an independent Minor League baseball team in Minnesota called the Saint Paul Saints.
