About Joyce

The Throneburg family has lived and farmed in this area for over 150 years. Ron and son Troy have a varied operation raising both conventional and organic row crops. Ron's brother and sister-in-law Monte and Joyce live just west of Two Roads on an 80 acre organic farm. Ron's mother lives 1 mile east of Two Roads on the property where he grew up and serves as the home base for his farming operation today.

Joyce purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Joyce chose Assumption

With three ancestral homesteads within two miles and because Ron and Troy were expanding their organic farming operation, it made sense to purchase this property that has grain storage and quick access to their farm operation's home base... less than a mile away. The house sits on a slight elevation and offers a secluded, quiet setting.

What makes this bungalow unique

This remote setting is generally quiet however it is a working farm. The home sits on several of acres of yard and farm 'out buildings' but is surrounded by farm land. Depending on the time of year, tractors could be planting or cultivating crops, combines could be harvesting, semi-trucks could be hauling grain. For people unfamiliar with agriculture, it is a great opportunity to see the action.

The pictures on the internet did not do this house justice at all. It is BEAUTIFUL and so cozy! The house was super accommodating to our four kids and grandparents. Nine of us stayed in the house and we were super comfortable. The house was equipped and furnished with everything you needed to provide a superb Thanksgiving and host even more family from surrounding areas. I truly can't speak high enough about this home. It was in between towns and quietly nestled in the country. We will start using this home for our yearly vacation to visit family!

A Fantastic Getaway From A Busy Schedule

  • 5 of 5

We were recently in the area to attend the Farm Progress Show and stayed at Two Roads Abode. What a great place to get away from it all at the end of the day! Although it was a bit of a drive from the show site, the serenity was well worth the trip each night. The house, grounds, and ammenities were as good or better than advertised on HomeAway, and the owners were terrific to work with. We will certainly be staying again when back in the area.

Secluded Convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us while we visited family in surrounding areas. It was plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 children with all the amenities -- and beautiful view on an operating organic farm! We even had a place to plug in our electric car. Thank you!

Butterflies everywhere

  • 5 of 5

Joyce - so glad we found your property for a family reunion July 14th -18th, 2016 in Shelbyville. The pictures on-line of the property is exactly as we found it and we appreciated the cleanliness, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. We were amazed at the yellow butterflies that flew up like popcorn as we drove up and down the gravel drive to the house. Your map directions are spot on and very useful to finding the house. Local attractions such as the steak house in Findlay, winery in Assumption, the downtown Shelbyville steakhouse and Monicals Pizza were sites we enjoyed by my immediate family and as a reunion group. The Walmart and County Market in Shelbyville are great to pick up things forgotten or food for the refrigerator.

One thing that will be helpful to future renters is instructions for TV use and how to find the channels that are appropriate for this home - what are the TV channels to get good reception. You have been quickly responsive with any questions I've emailed over the time since first renting the property - thanks for that.

Two Roads Abode is 1 hr east of Springfield, IL home of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and other Lincoln sites (home, law office and tomb) as well as Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana Thomas House.

8 golf courses are within 30 to 40 minutes of Two Roads... some as close as 12 miles. Oak Terrace about 5 miles south of Pana features an 18 hole course, full service SPA and dining options.

45 minutes northeast is the Arthur/Arcola communities with charming Amish settlements throughout the countryside. Visit their specialty shops displaying craftsmanship from woodworking to culinary arts.

Lake Shelbyville, 20 minutes south provides boating, beaches, hiking and cycling opportunities. The General Dacey Trail, accessed from Shelbyville's Forest Park is a wonderful hike through old growth oaks where you'll often see deer and wild turkeys. Several of the campgrounds around Lake Shelbyville have boat ramps. Both Findlay and Lithia Marinas rent various sized boats.

Willow Ridge Winery is only 6 minutes away. Louie and Tina Donnel built this Tuscany style winery on farmland that was homesteaded by Donnel ancestors. Check out their website... they often have music on weekends, the setting is lovely and the wine is exceptional.

Appegio Winery is 2.5 miles south of Assumption on Rt. 51. Mike and Karen Swiney remodeled a turn of the century barn into a beautiful 2-level winery.
