Beautiful home close to family-friendly activities. Can walk to metra train to downtown Chicago or western burbs, Fox River, Batavia, Geneva. High ceilings, inlaid woods, and a chance to stay in a historic Victorian that was once a safe house in the underground railroad and has a Illinois Historic Building marker. Good for couples, solo travelers, business travelers, and families. I have one large King bed in 1 room with attached tandem room w/ twin.
The train station is two blocks from the house so if you don't like the quiet intermittent sound of the train at night, this would not be the place for you. By law there is no train whistles at night though.
The bedroom is large with a round table to work from or check email. I provide coffee for here or to go in the morning and would enjoy spending time with you and your group to get to know you. When you are renting a room as opposed to the whole house, full kitchen access, such as cooking meals, is not available as I work from home and some days and may use the kitchen as my work space. You can store small amounts of food in the fridge.
Check-in: 3PM - 10PM
Absolutely no smoking in house.
Please turn off fans and lights in room before you leave for the day.
If I am not home when you arrive, which can occur because I take call professionally, you will still be able to access the house through the side door. Directions for how to get into the house are sent the day of your arrival. If you need the directions sent sooner, please let me know.
When you are renting a room as opposed to the whole house, please check in with the owner before making meals or setting up in the kitchen for conversation (I work from home and some days and may use the kitchen as my work space). The same is true for storing large quantities of food in the fridge--please check with me first.
There is a room air conditioner and heater in your room. I have central air and a boiler for the whole house, but if the temp in your room is not to your liking, please use the room a/c or heater to supplement the system. Please do not change the thermostat.
