The Old Mill Inn is located in a renovated flour mill which was built in 1888. We are located on the main street of the village of Alto Pass, IL in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest and close to many activities such as hiking, biking, canoeing, bird watching, fishing and the Shawnee Wine Trail to name a few.
Bed and Breakfast Style
This is a renovated 1888 building which originally housed the Alto Pass Milling Company. Since this was built during the Victorian period, there are many Victorian furnishings in the B&B. There are 3 common areas; a living room with TV, another smaller living room with TV, and the dining room as well as a large balcony with chairs and tables. A microwave and refrigerator are available for guests to use. Due to the stairs and balcony, we are sorry but we do not accommodate children.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
In 2014 the innkeepers decided they wanted to open a Cafe and B&B in the old flour mill building where they lived. They spent the winter and spring of 2014-2015 working on the building. Mike, who is a well known artist and craftsman, spent his time fixing things and painting the outside of the building while Dottie spent her time painting and decorating the inside. In late summer of 2015 they opened Old Mill Inn - Cafe and B&B. The B&B is open seven days a week and the cafe is open on Saturdays and Sundays.
Our B&B is located on the 2nd floor and is not handicap accessible.
