Welcome to the Crawford House Inn!

This Italianate style mansion offers year round hospitality for that romantic getaway or an extended stay in Dixon, Illinois. Elegance and relaxation await your arrival in spacious rooms furnished with Victorian and comfortable furniture. Your innkeeper, Lyn Miliano, will make every effort to make your stay memorable.

The Crawford House harkens to a simpler, quieter time. Upon arrival, our guest may enjoy a tour of the house, which may include its renovation history or how the rooms were used during the Victorian era. Summer guest might enjoy a cool drink on the spacious veranda or a walk in the Victorian garden. It’s the perfect way to relax after a day of sightseeing or travel.

Guest will enjoy the solitude in the courthouse square across the street, the rustle of the wind in the century-old oak trees, the chiming of the church bells, and in the distant wail of a train miles away across the sleeping countryside.
