Groundhog Day

It feels like Groundhog Day was weeks ago, or was it years ago? Hard to say. This winter where I live, everyday feels like Groundhog Day. I’m a huge fan of the 1993 Bill Murray movie and I had to share when I saw the home featured in the film is for sale. In the film it was billed as “The Cherry Street Inn,” but it’s really, “Royal Victorian Manor Bed and Breakfast.”groundhog 2The filming really took place at this home in Woodstock, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago, about ten miles from Wisconsin. While it was alway gray and cold in Punxsutawney, these images were taken when it was sunny and they show a gorgeous exterior and lawn! Fans of the movie will surely recognize the view from the front door.groundhog 3

The 8-bedroom, 8-bathroom home was built in 1895 and boasts 5,815 square feet! The main dining area is where Phil would often give Mrs. Lancaster (proprietor of the bed and breakfast) a hard time.groundhog 4

Phil: Do you ever have déjà vu, Mrs. Lancaster?

Mrs. Lancaster: I don’t think so, but I could check with the kitchen.

I don’t recall every seeing the kitchen in the movie. But, it’s obviously been updated since then. I love the huge island with seating for four.
