For Sale: The "Groundhog Day" Manor

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach Realtors RS324489

The need to know: Bill Murray stayed here. The man, the myth, the legend, people! Well, his character Phil Connors did in the 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day”—but hey, count it!

The Royal Victorian Manor, as it’s called in the real world, is located in Woodstock, Ill. It’s a bed & breakfast (or a family home!) that was featured in the Harold Ramis film as the inn. Built in 1894, the inn has six bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and an innkeeper’s suite. Included in the 6,000 square feet of living space is the original hardwood floor, leaded glass windows and three fireplaces. Another added bonus: everything in the home has been updated within the last five years.

The B&B is only a few blocks from the historic Town Square, the Woodstock Opera House and Metra train station, and about an hour from O’Hare International Airport and downtown Chicago.

May its new owners never hear Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” inside its walls.

Listed for: $885,000

Michael, very interesting piece of history about this property.  I was naive enough to believe that the inn portrayed in the movie was actually in Pennsylvania!  Sounds like the owners have made some incredible updates and private baths are a PLUS in a bed and breakfast!
