Welcome to Maison de Pillars
Maison de Pillars (formerly known as The Pillars of Plainfield Bed & Breakfast Inn ) is a beautifully restored 1870 Victorian-Georgian mansion located on a secluded picturesque acre of tall Northern Red Oak and Royal Empress trees. Built during the time when fascinating events were occurring all around the world, this historical edifice witnessed many of its own historical dramas occur state-side as well. Teeming with an array of beautiful creatures ranging from Blue Jays, Red Cardinals, Woodpeckers, and Hawks, to Ground Hogs, Rabbits, Squirrels, numerous Deer, and Raccoon's (depending on the season), the grounds support an abundance of various wildlife species year-round. Constructed during the 2nd French Empire (architecture developed from the redevelopment of Paris under Napoleon III's Second Empire), this hidden gem is situated in the Van Wyck Brooks Historic District of Plainfield.
