WOODSTOCK, Ill. — A local bed and breakfast that was featured in the popular film “Groundhog Day” is on the market.

The picturesque Royal Victorian Manor in Woodstock, Ill., is up for sale at $645,000. According to its real estate listing, it has eight bedrooms and nine baths. The historic bed and breakfast doubled as the Cherry Street Inn in the 1993 film starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.

The renovated house sits atop a small hill at 344 Fremont Street in Woodstock. According to the Royal Victorian Manor’s website, the roughly 5,800 square foot retreat was first built in 1894 for McHenry County judge C.P. Barnes, his wife and two children. The family moved in 1914.


Recent reviews rave about the guest house’s accommodations; it has garnered praise on both TripAdvisor and Yelp, averaging a 4.5-star rating on both.

Murray’s character in “Groundhog Day” can be seen going in and out of the inn while on a visit to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Though the film takes place there, it was shot in Woodstock. Interior scenes at the inn were filmed at a nearby sound stage.

According to the listing, the house is “located near the beautiful Downtown District which features quaint restaurants, farmer’s market, Metra Train and live theater.”
