We have a four-bedroom house and three of the rooms are available. (Max 8 guests). This listing is for Room 1 which is a large room with a queen bed and an attached bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. Room 2 is a bedroom with a full-sized bed, and Room 3 is an office with a comfortable full-sized futon. In addition to the shower in Room 1, there is a shared bath with shower/tub, and a third bathroom with shower in the finished basement.
The house is located on the end of a dead-end street with a 2-acre lot and no visible neighbors. There are great views of the Illinois river as the house is on the top of the hill overlooking the valley. It's quiet and sunny. The yard is entirely organic, and in the summer there should be an abundance of fresh veggies in the garden. We are also in the midst of installing solar panels to make the place even more green. (Currently our green creds include geo-thermal heating/cooling, all LED bulbs, and water saving fixtures.) We'll also converting over to native plants and have a milkweed garden for the monarchs.
This house actually has two kitchens! We love to cook and have lots of gadgets. Vitamix, food processor, stand mixer and pressure cooker are some of the major appliances. We also have a well-stocked pantry in case you want to cook but need a tsp of guar gum -- we have you covered! ;-)
You'll have access to the entire house with the exception of our master bedroom.
No particular rules other than mutual respect. No smoking, no non-vegan food in the kitchen.
The neighborhood is filled with older homes, large lots and mature trees. It's great for a long walk to stretch your legs.
Unfortunately there is no public transportation. However for electric car owners, we do have a Tesla charger available, and it can be configured for other electric cars with an adaptor. Please check with us ahead of time. (The outlet is a NEMA 14-50 240 volt.)
