If you’ve seen the movie “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray, you might think it was filmed in Punxsatawney, PA. But truth be told, the movie was filmed just a few towns north of where I live in Woodstock, Illinois. I’ve heard that the movie makers passed through Woodstock on the way to film the Blue Brothers and made a mental note of the idyllic town for a future film. Hubby and I recently made the trip to Woodstock on a pretty, snowy day.
This gorgeous home served as the Cherry Street Inn (today known as the Royal Victorian Manor) where Phil Connors (aka Bill Murray) relived Groundhog Day over and over before finally figuring out how to behave properly.
Today this home is a private residence.
Our trip to Woodstock this day resulted in several vintage finds from one of the antique stores.
It sits on top of a hill so has great views.
If you’re ever in the area, be sure to check out the town’s Groundhog Days festival!
Have a Happy Groundhog Day!!
