It's the B&B that was featured day after day, after day, after day in Bill Murray's 1993 flick 'Groundhog Day,' and the stunning property is now on the market for $985,000.
It's currently the Royal Victorian Manor in Woodstock, Ill. but can easily be turned into the grand single family home it once was. A grand wrap-around porch overlooks the big fenced yard and is only a few blocks from schools, the historic Woodstock Square and Metra trains.
The home is completely renovated and features an in-law suite on the 3rd floor with a gourmet kitchen. The large home is 5,815 square-feet with 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.
The home was used in 'Groundhog Day' for some of the movie's most crucial scenes, when Phil starts off his mornings reiterating the same phrases from Punxtawny’s local radio station, and is confronted by a fellow hotel guest who asks if he’s off to see the groundhog. Murray’s character responds with the pivotal question: “Didn’t we do this yesterday?” followed by the memorable line: “Don’t mess with me, porkchop! What day is this?” Murray’s character learn soon after it is, indeed, Feb. 2, yet again.
Frustrated after waking up the same day over and over, Phil tells the camera, "This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you!"
Groundhog Day 2014 had Punxsutawney Phil seeing his shadow at around 7:25 a.m. on Feb. 2, meaning there will likely be six more weeks of winter ahead this year.

The kitchen of the massive B&B is completely remodeled and boasts a large center island with seating for more than 8 people.
According to legend, if it's cloudy when the groundhog emerges, Phil will leave his burrow, and winter will soon end. If it's sunny out, the groundhog will see his shadow and, frightened, retreat back into his burrow while winter drags on for six more weeks.
There are hardwood floors throughout, a fireplace in the living room, and exercise room, library and ceiling fans in the gorgeous Victorian-style home.
Murray's 'Groundhog Day' is about a weatherman finds himself living the same day over and over again, and also stars Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliott.
