About Steve Young

I grew up in Southern Illinois, and could not wait to 'Get Out,' 'Escape,' and go to the big city. I went to school in Chicago at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and left Southern Illinois far behind. I thought this was great.

I had a very successful career in the online advertising, marketing, and market research world catering to big pharma. In a normal year I would fly 125,000 miles and see many places, countries and sites.

As I grew older and my 'success' continued I felt more and more that something was missing. I began to yearn for the hills of Southern Illinois, the slower pace of life, and the people I left behind more and more.

I 2013, I came home for a few weeks to help my mother move my father into a nursing home. After this was completed I flew to Milan for business, and on my way back I received a call that my mother had had a stroke. This was a life changing event for me, and I never really went home.

My father spent the year getting worse, and my Mother spent the year getting better. When my father died in December of 2013, I decided to 'officially' move to Southern Illinois in order to spend more time with my mother and be closer with family. I also made the decision to leave the company I worked for and do something simpler, and local to Southern Illinois.

June 1st, 2014 I started my company with the goal to create vacation rental homes in Southern Illinois and help the area grow tourism. Southern Illinois is a beautiful and special place, and I would like to share it with as many people as possible.

Steve Young purchased this house in 2014

Why Steve Young chose Illinois

This property was a a two unit rental property located in the quaint town of Alto Pass. The price was right to allow me to completely gut and remodel the back unit. A more organized upstairs with two lovely bedrooms and an amazing bathroom.

The front unit is still rented long term to the couple that was there when i purchased the property. Should they ever decide to leave I will fully refurbish the front unite in order to make two adjacent guesthouses for people coming to Southern Illinois to enjoy the outdoors and wineries.

The proximity to wineries, and area attractions is also great for this property.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for extended weekend and loved it. It is conveniently placed amongst several wineries and state parks. Place was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen had all of the amenities we needed for cooking and doing our laundry. The owner was very accommodating, we definitely recommend this place and hope to return again.

Clean, updated, comfortable, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It was close to many vineyards and the house was EXTREMELY clean! The shower was gorgeous and huge! The bedrooms were very clean and well made! The owner is just a call or text away and very attentive to his house and your concerns or questions!! We will definitely be back here!!! The kitchen is very pretty and stocked well if you'd like to cook! The backyard patio is the perfect sitting area!! We give a generous 5 stars for sure!!!!!

Beatifully decorated, well maintained, spacious downtown Alto apartment

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed this downtown Alto Pass loft apartment, which has a lovely bathroom, two comfortable bedrooms, spacious living room, and a nice kitchen. My only suggestions are to boost the wifi, which really didn't work, and to bring the TV down from above the sliding glass doors. I would most certainly stay here again. Thank you!
