This large bedroom with big window and a skylight is the second of two rooms offered on the second floor of our home. The large private bath with a bathing tub and shower is just outside your door. Guests have use of a basement kitchen and laundry.
Our large, welcoming second floor bedroom is your private space. You are welcome in the rest of our home including our sun room and on our wrap around porch when the weather permits. We always have short and long term guests living here and willingness to work graciously with the other guests use of the shared bath and the shared kitchen is a must
Other than our private bedroom and bath, the house is pretty much your home away for home
Interaction with guests
We lead fairly active lives between work, and spending time with our grown kids and our grandkids. You will see us, for sure, and we enjoy getting to know our guests, but we also understand one's need for privacy
Other things to note
Please note: Our two second floor bedrooms are never rented simultaneously so that an individual, couple, or two family members can have the second floor bath to themselves (private bath). In the case of two couples or 3 or more family members traveling together, the other bedroom can be rented for an additional charge.
We only ask that you treat our home and other guests with kindness and respect, and that if you smoke that you do so outside.
We live in the home we built and moved into in 1991. I am a remodeling contractor, licensed Illinois home inspector and a landlord. My wife has a house cleaning business. We enjoy traveling and meeting new people and hearing their stories. We've been to Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany and England, Canada and Mexico. We've also seen much of the U. S, traveling by car, plane, train, and most recently by wending our way through its back roads in our motor home. Since 2008 we've been hosting foreign students from China and India in our home, broadening our view of the world even more by looking at it through their eyes.
We love good food, my wife is a fantastic cook, and really savor eating out at good restaurants on occasion. We have a greenhouse and raised beds in our backyard where we grow organic vegetables during the spring, summer and fall.
We joined the Airbnb community in 2015 and have met some interesting and delightful people. We look forward to meeting you.
