Bed and breakfast opens in Batavia

The 1861 Inn, a charming and quaint bed and breakfast, has opened in Batavia.

The Inn, which was purchased by Tom and Carole Cottrill when they moved to Batavia from Kansas City, Missouri seven years ago, has all of the 19th century charm combined with all of the many modern comforts that one would expect in a 21st century bed and breakfast.

The Cottrills bought the 1861 Inn, which is nestled on seven acres of wooded land located in the village of Batavia, with the specific intention of opening up a bed and breakfast Inn that resembled the old world charm of similar establishments that they have vacationed in all across Europe, especially Italy.
