Located 1 block from the downtown business district and a contributing factor in the Shinnston Historic Landmark District, The Gillum House Bed & Breakfast has accessibility with all the pluses of small town America in this city of 2500. Come back to Granny's house with the wonderful woodwork and craftsmanship of a 1912 house. A smoke-free, pet-free accommodation, the Gillum has 3 second floor guestrooms.The Gillum Room has a private bath and Rosi's and the Harris share a.bathroom that has a 60 in. shower. Both rooms are equipped with emergency facilities, there is a chamber pot under every bed! Relax on the large front porch or in the side yard as the gentle breeze carries the aroma of the herbs growing around the house.


Rosi's Room has a Windsor-style double bed, antique furnishings, paintings by John Panek, and a wonderful oak mantle. Rosemary claimed this room as her own forever when she wrote her loves on the wallpaper (sorry, it has been removed).
The Harris Room is named for Rosemary's Grandmother who purchased the house from the Gillum family in the 1970's. It reflects the "down-home", warm friendliness of the family with the large rocking chair in the reading nook and the antique handmade quilt on the double bed. The lovely mantle, antique dresser, and antique lamps complete the warmth of this room. The paintings in this room are by John Panek and Sue Panek (his sister).
The Gillum Room exudes romance. From the 4 poster queen-size bed with its pillow-top mattress and down-filled comforter to the fresh flower on the mirrored mantle to the private bath with the claw-foot tub with dimmer switch for the light over the tub (also a 48 in. shower), this is obviously a room for lovers.


All rooms have robes in the closets for guests to use as well as CD/radio/alarm clock units. Books on the second floor (bookcase in hall and in Harris Room) are for the guests to read, enjoy, and take with them (please do not send them back). the Harris Room has a TV wit VCR.
