A Very Happy Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came with his mother, our daughter, son-in-law and their three children. We loved the cozy, warm feeling of this home - it was perfect for our wish to relax and spend time together. We had a good time hiking through the wooded area behind the house and then coming back to make fires and cook great meals. We also enjoyed a trip to Starved Rock for more hiking and enjoying the gorgeous fall weather.

Quiet, comfy, and well furnished. Great for Starved Rock.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time spending a weekend here with my girlfriend and the dog. Well appointed, with a great sound system to go with the TV in the main room, a kitchen filled with utensils and appliances, and comfortable beds. Loved it.

Owner's Response: Guess you drew the short straw and ended up with the hide-a-bed or the trundle this trip! We just upgraded the double in the back bedroom to a high-quality queen mattress; and the master has the best queen money can buy. Upcoming project: turning the downstairs den into a bonafide bedroom so we can replace the couch with a bed. Look forward to hosting you next time you return to the area--we extend a 10% discount to repeat guests.
