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 grew up just 1 mile east of Two Roads on the property that 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 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.

Beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bath Sears Craftman's farm house with plenty of room for large family dinners

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Located in middle of some of world's richest farmland provided beautiful views of green fields of corn and soy beans.

We enjoyed waking to the sounds of song birds (not traffic) and long walk down the lane filled with butterflies of all colors. The sunsets and the night sky were amazing.

We were in Central Illinois to visit family. Within 20 minutes of this peaceful farm house is Lake Shelbyville to the East and Lake Decatur to the North. We hope to return soon.

I have never stayed in a house better prepared for guests. There was simply everything we needed. The location, among the cornfields, was wonderful. Joyce had all the information we wanted and was available to help when we got lost.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

I am a bit of a clean freak, this home was spotless. All the linens, towels and beds were top notch. The kitchen left nothing to be desired, everything we could have wanted. Everything was in excellent condition and someone has an eye for decorating. There was plenty of room inside and parking outside. THANK YOU!

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.

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.
