Welcome to Three Roses Bed & Breakfast (recently featured in the Guardian in the UK), Circa 1890, "where breakfast is an event!" Our guests choose from a large menu: omelets of all kinds, a large assortment of pancakes to choose from, homemade granola, hash browns, sausage gravy and biscuits, and scones are just a few of the many options served by candlelight on elegant china. Everything on our menu is made from scratch and cooked just the way you like it.
Guests have the choice of four guest rooms on the second floor; however, to give everyone the privacy of their own bathroom only two couples are booked at a time. We do make exceptions for families or groups that don't mind sharing a bath. No one shares with a stranger.
Business travelers will be pleased to find a desk and high-speed wireless internet in each room along with a $30 price reduction for singles in addition to length of stay discounts.
Ceiling fans and central air and heat keep the inn comfortable year-round. Pontiac is centrally located in Illinois and features the Pontiac Oakland Automobile Museum, the Livingston County War Museum, the Illinois Route 66 museum, and about a half a dozen more museums that are all free for visitors to see. Summertime is a busy time for the town of 12,000 with something going on nearly every week-end until near Thanksgiving time.
Pontiac is located on Old Route 66 and draws thousands of international guests every year who choose to drive the route from Chicago, IL to Santa Monica, CA. We've been told by many that Pontiac is the friendliest town along the entire route with the most to see. We highly encourage everyone who can, to spend 2 nights with us so that they can see everything Pontiac has to offer. If you have the time, we have the attractions you will not want to miss. You can spend some time with Bob Waldmire by touring his bus and home right here in Pontiac. (Link takes you to a video of Bob. You need to scroll down the page to see the video.) Here's a recent televison program by WEIU's Heartland Highway Series about Pontiac. This Link will take you to the Pontiac Tourism calendar of events.
Please note that our brochure is older than our website and there are some differences. When there are differences, the website is more accurate. The photos and room descriptions are nicer on the brochure.
