Linwood Lawn

The finest antebellum mansion in the Midwest


Built in 1859 as the original Limrick Mansion, Linwood Lawn has been restored to create a Bed and Breakfast experience you will never forget. Prepare yourself for a mansion experience unlike any place you have ever stayed.


Enjoy the sunset on the west porch on a summer evening, study the original imported Italian fireplace mantles, or relax with a book in the ladies parlor. The entire first floor is yours to explore and admire, from the beautiful Grand Ballroom to the ornate dining room, you will see what makes a stay at Linwood Lawn an unforgettable Bed and Breakfast experience.


Each of the spacious bedrooms features 14 foot high ceilings, beautiful countryside views, King size beds with luxurious linens and bedding and private bath. The rate charged for the two North bedrooms (John’s room and Nina’s room) is slightly lower simply because the bathrooms and showers within aren’t quite as large, but the rooms themselves are equally as accommodating and the amenities provided in each bedroom are the same.

Convenient to each of the bedrooms and centrally located on the second floor is Ella’s equestrian themed common area which features a large screen TV with access to DIRECTV channels and comfortable leather coaches.



The master bedroom features a beautiful canopy bed and eastern window views of the countryside. The bedroom windows slide up in the casement allowing six-foot step through access to the second story porch.

Northwest Bedroom - John's Bedroom $149/night

John’s Room features one of the earliest examples of an oriel window on the west. A window that is located on a second story and is freestanding is typically referred to as an oriel. The oriel in John’s room is a charming and unusual element for a house built in this era.

Northeast Bedroom - Nina's Bedroom $149/night

The Limrick’s youngest child, daughter Nina was born in this house in November, 1861. The Northeast bedroom was subdivided and used as a nursery, evidence of which is still visible by looking closely at the floors to see the lighter wood color where the nursery walls once stood.

Nina’s room features outstanding views of the northern horizon.


Southeast Bedroom - Anne's Bedroom $159/night

Anne’s Room is highlighted by a magnificent southern bird’s eye view of the countryside, lovely setting area and beautifully appointed accommodations. Anne  was fifteen years old when the family moved into their new home. Not long after she left to attend a Monrovian College in Salem, N.C.

Southwest Bedroom - May's Bedroom

May’s Room is  available in combination with rental of any of the other bedrooms (with shared bathroom) for $100 plus tax per night, for up to two additional guests. May spent part of her adult life in Cuba where she operated a mission with her husband.
