This 3 bedroom 2 bath ranch has the feel of a cottage in a smaller town. Whether you're coming to see the Abraham Lincoln sites, historic Route 66 attractions, on family or business travel, or if you're making your annual pilgrimage to the Illinois State Fair, this home is close enough to the action for you to get there quickly. When the day is done, it also provides a nice retreat within which to kick back, take off your shoes and unwind. You'll find a fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels, high-speed internet, satellite television and complimentary WiFi. Come, relax, bring your suitcase, and leave the rest up to us.
Gordon and Tammy are originally from the Peoria area, but have lived near Springfield since getting married in 1991. Gordon retired from a career in law enforcement in 2010, and in 2012 they bought their first rental property in Chatham. They have four children, three of whom were adopted and are still at home.
Gordon Fidler purchased this house in 2012
This house was selected due to its close proximity to their residence, the quality of the school district, and the fact that it reminds them of their home growing up, and their grandparent's home. The layout of the house as well as the era both bring back great memories. For two years, the house had been unfurnished and rented out on an annual basis. In February of 2015 it was transitioned into a fully furnished home for rent by visitors to the area. It's not quite a bed and breakfast, but they still get to provide warm hospitality for their guests.
They love the peaceful feel when they walk into the house. There are times when they will take time to go to the house to sit and read, and Gordon has confessed he has taken a nap or two there as well. The kitchen is spacious, as are the bedrooms and living room. It's a comfortable place to relax.
We felt at home in our VRBO as our family gathered over New Year's after visiting our Ailing Mom who is on Hospice. It really helped to be in a comfortable environment during a stressful time for our family. The home is comfortable and charming. There was plenty of comfortable seating and well appointed kitchen for us to prepare meals. There is nothing like the comforts of a home like environment than at a time like such as visiting a family member on hospice. We were very grateful to have found such a place! Thanks a bunch and Happy New Year to you and yours! Sincerely, The Lewis Family
We enjoyed our stay at this home. I have lived in the area all of my life and moved five years ago. It's hard to visit and stay in a hotel because they are not comfortable for extended periods of time and they dont feel like "home".
Check in and checkout was super easy. The house was as described, cuter in person. There are alot of little details that make this location homey. The couches are comfortable, and easy to relax in.
The things that are important to me were quickly checked off. The house was really clean. The kitchen had a ton of utensils, plates, glassware, etc. It would have been very easy to cook, but that wasn't on my agenda. Plenty of towels, blankets and pillows.
If you are not familiar with the area, you are a quick drive from Springfield and the sites. It does sit next to a train track, but that didn't bother us. I don't think the trains went by in the middle of the night, if they did...I didn't hear them!
With three bedrooms, and two full baths..I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you Gordan and Tammy for making our visit feel like home.
The home was perfect for our family to gather for an early Thanksgiving. We will be back!
It was so easy dealing with Gordon. We had to update the arrival time and he was very flexible. The house was adorable and my family members loved how comfortable the beds were. I was a little concerned about the train tracks being close by but it did not bother them at all. I plan to reserve here again. Thanks Gordon and family!!
Just spent a girlfriend weekend at "Fiddler's on the Roof." We had a great time. The kitchen is spacious. Living room furniture is comfy. The location was great for us for shopping at the mall. Tammy was there to greet us when we arrived. She showed us the house and gave us tips for restaurants. I'm sure we will stay there again.
We were very impressed with the cleanliness and the cheeriness of the home.
Paved walking and biking path is across the street from the house.
