Bob's Antiques and the Burlington Antique Show

Throughout the inn you will find evidence of Bob's knack for finding beautiful antiques. He also is very skilled at repairing clocks.


Sometimes he cleans them up, but other times he has to do more extensive work to repair the clock so it can function. (Bob assures me that once the painting of the woman in the background is cleaned, I will like it.)


Over the years, he has great success finding unique clocks to add to his collection. The clocks on this shelf are in Bob’s workshop, waiting for their repairs.


One place to discover antiques is the Burlington Antique Show, held the third Sunday of each month (April - October) at the Boone County Fairgrounds. Our property is right next to the fairground, so guests can easily walk over to browse over 200 antique dealers.

The first show of the 2010 season will be Sunday, April 18th, rain or shine. Other dates include May 16th, June 20th, July 18th, August 15th, September 19th, and October 17th.
