Gift Certificates – Free $25 for every $100 purchase.

Merry Christmas Everybody,

Just got a call from an extremely nice gentleman inquiring about gift certificates. He knew he wanted to buy one, but he just didn’t know how to go about it.ย  This past summer I inquired about adding something to our website that would make it easy to sell gift certificates.ย  I was told I had to go here and do this and go there and do that, and in a nutshell it just wasn’t that easy to do. Being summer and all I then forgot all about it.

Now it’s Christmas time and people are wondering how to buy them. So here ya go folks. You give me a call at 815-667-4600 and I will take all of your information. In 2-3 days your GC will arrive by USPS. It’s simply that easy.ย  I am going to be giving everyone who buys a gift certificate $25 Brightwood Bucks free for every $100 purchased.ย  They will be good towards any room and you can keep them for yourself or gift them.

If anyone knows of any easy way to add a gift certificate purchase thingee ( for lack of the proper term) to our website please let me know. I was on a website the other day that said click here to purchase a gift certificate.ย  After I had clicked 6 times I finally got to the actual purchase page.ย  I don’t want anyone to have to click 6 times.ย  To me that is NOT user friendly.



Applies to new reservations only.ย  Notย  to be used in conjunction with any other special, gift certificate or voucher.


Hi Everyone,

Yes we are doing a Living Social!ย  I just had my first call from someone who bought two vouchers and wanted to use them on a Saturday and Sunday.ย  Saturday is not included in the Living Social.ย  There are 6 other nights that you can use the vouchers.ย  Sunday thru Friday are the nights the LS is valid!ย  You can stay between now and April 30.ย  That’s a whole lot of nights that we are making available.ย  Go to check availability, put in the date you are looking for and if the room comes up, it is available that night.ย  If it doesn’t show up, it is not available.ย  Our reservation system is real time so it is always current.ย  Our office is closed from 6pm to 8am. ย  However, you can call 815-667-4600 any day between 8am and 6pm and we will be happy to help you.

Remember, you have to call to make your reservation.ย  Please do not make your reservation online. Please do not buy a voucher to use on a Saturday night. We will not accept them.
