Welcome to Senate Grove Inn

This 1884 two-story brick home has been renovated to the closest of its original design – but with full electric and central heating and A/C. It has 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors throughout the entire inn. Senate Grove Inn offers outstanding opportunities for recreation and relaxation. Walk across the property’s rolling hills and breathtaking vistas as spacious grounds are available with several trails for walking or birdwatching. Bring your fishing pole and fish in one of the Inn’s many tranquil ponds. Senate Grove Inn has offered guests a countryside sanctuary for over 20 years. 



Unger Room

This first-floor guestroom and private bathroom is named after one of our first frequent visitors. The queen-size wrought iron bed is complemented by a mirrored Victorian-era vanity. This room is close to the kitchen for those late-night snacks.

Smith Room

This expansive second-floor guestroom has an elegant brass queen-sized bed, along with a sitting area with two gliding chairs. Since the layout of the house was adjusted when adding private bathrooms, this room is accessed through a narrow doorway and it's bathroom.
