Unique Church B&B, Restaurant & Duplex!

Huge Business Opportunity – Own this converted Church B&B that has been artfully configured to offer an intriguing bed and breakfast travel experience; hold magical receptions and events in the “sanctuary”; offer meals and private parties in the fully-equipped restaurant, while having ample private suites in the church and adjacent duplex! Hidden between the Church B&B and the restaurant, is a large private garden and paver-stoned patio with romantic lights, covered deck, tinkling fountain, wrought iron gates, and trellises. The patio can seat up to 35! The parking lot has twenty-four spaces plus more parking at the duplex plus a three-car garage.  

There are many engrossing stories about the history of this 1868 former German Catholic church and the adjoining 1885 schoolhouse. Those stories as well as the reputation of the two very successful restaurants that previously occupied the restaurant have made this property known far and wide. 

Carlinville, IL is located on the original Route 66 Mother Road and is visited by people from all over the world. Although Route 66 was decommissioned nationally in 1985 (due to the Interstate Highway System), its popularity and mystique have never died. The Illinois Department of Transportation officially recognized the Route 66 revival movement and posted historic markers along its length as the “Main Street of America.” Visitors to Carlinville will find it easy to retrace the original Route 66.

Carlinville offers the largest contiguous collection of Sears catalog homes in the world, the Cannonball Jail, Blackburn College and so much more.  It is located just 61 miles from St. Louis, MO, and 45 miles from Springfield, IL, home of the Abraham Lincoln sites.

The square is considered to be one of the top 2 prettiest in the state and Carlinville was chosen in the top small towns to live in Illinois.
