Cozy and well appointed home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This home was cozy and well appointed. The owners were very flexible and responsive. We would recommend this home to anyone for a little weekend getaway! The Christmas decorations were a nice touch and the kids were pleasantly surprised by the game systems! Master bed was extremely comfortable too! Thank you for sharing this with us!

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.

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.
