Your Sanctuary in Historic Charleston

atrium

Conveniently located a pleasant walk from the campus of Eastern Illinois University, The McGrady Inn honors its heritage, a United Brethren church constructed in 1919.  From the original maple floors to the nine-panel stained glass window at the center of the 23-foot sanctuary ceilings, guests are surrounded by the results of a three-year restoration matching the original craftsmanship.

The Inn offers modern amenities such as flat screen televisions, wireless internet and spacious bathrooms in the company of intricate oak woodwork and nineteenth century church pews. Enjoy a stroll to one of the many restaurants located on Charleston's courthouse square or simply relax in the shade of a hard maple tree on our front porch. The McGrady Inn is centrally located among the distinguished homes in our college community.

We look forward to your stay at the McGrady Inn, your sanctuary in historic Charleston.
