The Hard Days Nite Bed and Breakfast offers guests four bedrooms with private bathrooms. Beds are available in both king and queen size. All rooms have exquisite decor and provide complete privacy for each guest. Beatles collectables and memorabilia, including photos, letters and other items, some of which have been donated by Louise Harrison, can be seen in a small display area and throughout the house.
All four rooms, John's, Paul's, George's, and Ringo's, are available at the same rate. No minimum stay is required. Each night's stay includes a continental breakfast, plus complimentary TV, VCRs and videos, music tapes, and board games.
The house is available for groups and meetings and the whole house may be rented for a special rate.
A handicapped-accessible room is available.
Children over ten are welcome. Pets and smoking are prohibited.
The Beatles Mini-Museum is part of the Hard Days Nite Bed and Breakfast. The room where George Harrison slept (on their visit here in 1963) is now the Beatles Mini-Museum. In the 1960's the same room was used by Lou Harrison, George's sister, as her office and radio station where she answered thousands of letters and spoke to fans daily with information on "The Beatles". Gracious fans from coast to coast and Mexico have donated or loaned some or part of their Beatles collections to the museum. Beatles memorabilia is also displayed throughout the first floor of the Bed and Breakfast. It has been said by several "Beatles" collectors that the house at 113 McCann St in Benton, IL is the largest piece of Beatle memorabilia. The house is already slated for a plaque as a national historical site.
The Bed and Breakfast has acquired an adjacent house which will be used exclusively as a permanent “Beatles Museum”. To our knowledge, it will be the only True Beatles Museum on North and South America.
