Let us help you plan your next special event off property, and then utilize the Westerfield Cottage as your special retreat!
Why The Vroomans chose St. Clair County
The Westerfield family originally built our pine log cabin home in 1977 and established it as a private residence until 1982 at which time they transformed the cabin and its land into a unique bed and breakfast and quaint bistro. The Westerfield House has also operated as "His Rest" and "The Anatolian Inn." Today our family has reclaimed the main cabin as a private residence. The "Summer Kitchen" remains available for rental. We're offering what everyone else is not. A true escape from your phone, your calls, the world. A true engagement with nature where this land is made for you and me.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Westerfield Cottage provides the best in local amenities and an abundance of ideas to embrace the local culture. We hope you will enjoy a walk back into nature; a wonderful alternative to the hectic pace offered by city hotels and inns.

Quaint & cozy! Felt like we were in a movie set.
We loved our short stay in this little log cabin. It felt warm and cozy. Although it offered all of the comfort of modern amenities it had the feel of being in the Wild West in an old cowboy movie. The stone fireplace is MASSIVE! It’s enchanting to lay in the huge bed and look up at the big timbers. The hosts communicated well with us. Even though we were staying in a guest cottage it felt very private. We never actually saw them since we had a customized door key code (which made it very convenient). Eckerts Orchard is very close and we met family and enjoyed a delicious country style supper there. The next morning we had a yummy brunch at the Egg & I. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a “getaway” that’s still close to many attractions.
We had a wonderful stay in this perfect little cabin. The owners were very accommodating as well which made the stay so much better!
"Hygge" is a danish word that cannot be fully translated into english. The closest we can get to is "cozy" or "a homey feel". Through it cannot fully be translated it can be experienced! I experienced "hygge"(hoo-ga) at this sweet log Cabin tucked away in Illinois. The picture does not do it justice. Its even better! With small caves of light perfectly placed throughout the space, a tall ceiling and so many quilts! The room itself is filled with warm smells of (I think its) cedar in the bathroom and maple logs burning slowly in the large stone fireplace. All it needed was some warm tea in a ceramic mug and a bathrobe (both provided). I promptly did both. It was divine.
On top of all the wonder it was so easy to get to and wasn't far from stores or restaurants.
I packed most of my food so that I wouldn't have to leave the space at all!
Thank you Kim for your exquisite design in making this place the epitome of Hygge!
A beautifully maintained and cozy cottage.
We had an amazing weekend at the Westerfield Cottage! It was an intimate space and the owners put so much thought into creating a welcoming environment. When we arrived Friday evening the lights were on, firewood was stocked and ready, and there were plush robes and chocolates on our king size bed! There was no WiFi and no phone reception, which was exactly what we wanted: an escape from our busy lives to reconnect with each other. We hope to return again!
We spent our wedding anniversary at the quaint cabin. Everything was quite lovely. Can not wait to return.
