“This is a perfect place to stay for a quiet, cozy trip. The bedroom, and bed, were comfortable - there was everything we needed in there. This is a great location: quiet, homey, and close to anything you'd need. I was grateful for privacy, considering it was a shared listing. I'd definitely stay here again!”
Just minutes from campus, downtown, and the airport, The Depot is a historic home attached to 5 wooded acres, a lake, and a "big sky" view across the prairie for watching sunsets and night skies. Originally a train depot constructed in 1857, it has been fully modernized for contemporary living. However, we have taken great effort to preserve its rustic charms that Abraham Lincoln would have known during his circuit riding days before the Civil War. These include graffiti from 1917.
“As soon as we walked into the place it was clear that the owners took great pride in presenting a unique and comfortable experience for their guests. Lots of interesting details and informative notes made navigating a new place easy and delightful. The kitchen was well appointed and had a variety of food items available ( including good coffee), which made it easy to pull together breakfast or a snack. Bed was comfortable and there is plenty of space to spread out. We only stayed one night but exploring the many rooms, books, decorations/ wall art and unique doors and cabinets/nooks, made it an adventure all it’s own. We highly recommend The Depot. Would stay again.”

“The best AirBnB in Champaign! I spent over a year hopping around AirBnB's in Champaign, so you can trust me when I say Tyler is the best host I found and his house is the nicest. Tyler is extremely communicative and helpful. His house is sparkling clean. But I think it was the little touches that set this house apart. From your name on the door to the holiday decorations, Tyler's house felt warm and welcoming. Even the neighbors are friendly. If you're coming to Champaign, stay here.”
