The Roxana in Fox Lake, IL


Bed and Breakfast


Established in 2007.

Fine hotels graced the community and hosted summer visitors. Many still stand today, converted into privately owned residences. One notable property is the former M. Krasny Hotel on Fox Lake. At the turn of the century, the Krasny Hotel welcomed guests with "bed room arrangements appealing to a body tired from the day's sports, and a table that will satisfy the cravings of a hunger that naturally follows pleasures in the open air" for $1.50 a day! This elegant, country hotel is now The Roxana Bed and Breakfast Hotel.

      Made a last min decision to have a weekend away. Wanted to stay close to home so I looked up the chain of lakes. We had a great weekend at the Roxana. Our first night started off with a sunset boat ride and then a campfire. Saturday we had a lazy day enjoying the house and lake. We look forward to our next return. Jamie & Roque

      Great place! I had a wonderful time there for a wedding over the summer - charming rooms overlooking the lake, helpful and friendly staff, a little paddle boat we could use anytime and a delicious breakfast!

      Fantastic stay at The Roxana! I stumbled on this place online (didn't know it existed prior to that). We needed a place to stay because we had a wedding to attend in the area. Jimmy was so informative & made the booking process so smooth & pain free. I ended up telling the bride & groom about my experience. They had been struggling to find quality accomodations for family/friends coming in from out of town for the wedding. After my recommendation, they ended up booking another 9 rooms at The Roxana! Everyone ended up having such an overwhelmingly positive experience here! What a wonderful find!! The setting is so great, right on the water. The house itself is very tastefully done, and all the amenties exceeded our expectations. And the food provided at breakfast?! We had such a great time here!

      If you're looking for anything in this general area, I couldn't recommend this place enough!

      Thanks again, Jimmy!! Looking forward to our next visit!!

      Had a wonderful time in this old Victorian. All the charm you would imagine.  Right on the water.  They provided us with kayaks to play with.  Beth and executive chef/inn keeper Jimmy Wade made the stay exceptional.  Expect exceptional hospitality, a communal full course breakfast,  and amazing grounds to hang out on.

      Jimmy and Beth really know how to make you feel welcome.

      This is such a cute place.  The rooms are lovely.  We stayed in 202 and had a lovely view of the Fox Lake.  

      We took out the paddle boat and had a nice time fishing from the pier.

      The new innkeepers couldnt be any nicer and accommodating.

      There are lots of things to see from the wrap around porch including a beautiful heron who seems to have found a home there.

      This bed and breakfast is one we will return too.

      We booked the entire Roxana for our family and bridal party during our wedding on July 12, 2014, and could not have been more pleased. Jimmy and his family welcomed us with open arms and made us not just guests, but part of his family.

      Beyond just the wonderful food and hospitality, the property is phenomenal. The waterfront is beautiful and peaceful, at night there is a great fire pit to sit around and enjoy the evening.

      On the day of our wedding our photographer was able to utilize so many areas of the property for pictures before our ceremony. While we found the Roxana after we had booked our venue, we wish we had found it sooner as it would have made the perfect location for us to get married.

      We love the Roxana so much, we already booked our 1 year anniversary stay with them :)

      We could not recommend a better place to stay, get married, or hold a special event.

      Thanks, we love you guys!!!
