My daughter and I were planning our third annual winery trail visit and decided to try this Bed & Breakfast. Jim and Barb are fantastic and accommodated any need we had. The breakfasts were excellent, and the location is beautiful. We loved actually being able to see so many stars in the sky at night! I would highly recommend this B & B. Their winery had some nice wines that we purchased after a tasting as well. Well worth the money!

Barb and Jim are great hosts, and the fact that they also operate a winery on their peaceful hill is an added bonus! Scott is a great winemaker! Would love to go back sometime for an extended stay. Highly recommend if you’re planning a trip to the southern Illinois wine trails.

This lovely 2 bedroom place is right outside Carbondale. It is so peaceful and quiet. It overlooks a small lake and is in a vineyard. Barb and Jim were very accommodating and friendly. Great breakfast. Great wine there too! And it’s on the Shawnee Wine Trail. We would recommend this place to anyone. Enjoyed our 2 night stay there

Limited seasonal selection and high prices disappointed when compared to other wineries in the area! I hope for more in the fall to make up for the early summer selection. Service was eh, I've had better.

My sister and I came into town for the weekend. We stayed at this location because it was close to hiking trails, we loved the fact that it had a vineyard too! Bonus!! Jim and Barb are super friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.

This is the place you want to stay if you are in need of a totally relaxed atmosphere. Every room of Kite Hill B & B has a exquitely peaceful view whether it is the calm lake surrounded by vineyards, the forest that is thick with trees and birdsong, or the rolling meadow that is sprinkled with wildflowers. The icing on the cake, though, is the attention to every detail that the friendly proprietors generously give. The rooms are impeccably kept and breakfast is always freshly prepared to suit your individual dietary needs.

We had an amazing 1 night stay at the Bed & Breakfast. Jim and Barb were both so helpful and accommodating. They have an incredible video library for you to pick from, and the room was very homey and comfortable. Barbara has a vast knowledge of all the area's attractions and shared some great tips. She also provided a most luxurious and delicious breakfast. Highly recommend staying here!

My husband and I stayed one night this weekend at the Kite Hill Vineyard Bed & Breakfast as a little "get away from the kids time." We couldn't have asked for more! The owners were so sweet, the food was incredible and the grounds and building are so warm and welcoming. We loved all the nearby hiking, wineries and 17th Street BBQ. We will definitely be back!

It was extremely Windy the day we visited so sitting outside was out but we enjoyed a nice glass of wine inside. Small inside but still nice. Not a huge crowd the day we went so that was nice. Only tried the red as I was tasted out for the day. Husband had a beer so he was happy. We didn't stay at the B & B only did the winery. Nice location.

We spent one night in this purpose built BandB . The owners accommodated us on a Sunday night at an hours notice despite having other plans for the night left out a bottle of wine and directions to nearby restaurants. Breakfast was lovely and the location in a vineyard magical. Room looked out on woods was lovely, clean and comfortable. They helped us plan our day on the Shawnee wine trail and then threw in a wine tasting of their really good award winning wines. Thanks Barb and Jim for a great stay in a lovely place. Next time we will stay longer.
