For this Episode, join us as we talk to Lori Miarecki, the caretaker of Cherry Tree Inn Bed and Breakfast. Movie fans may recognize this iconic bed and breakfast as Bill Murray’s backdrop to his repeatable day in the movie, Groundhog Day. But unlike popular belief, it’s actually located in Woodstock, Illinois, 45 miles outside of Chicago. Listen in as we talk to Lori about her experience, why she bought it, and why you should visit too.
