Location

Carol Stream, Illinois, United States

Carol Stream is a nice family neighborhood and our house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac. There is a one mile walking path around the lake. Our lake is fully stocked with bass, carp and catfish.

There's a mile about 10 minutes away and so many stores around here open 24 hours. Oh and tons of great chain restaurants you're familiar with.

During your stay
The basement is very separate from the rest of the house but we're here for you if you need anything you can come up and ask, call or text me. You do need to enter thru the front door but the basement has its own door and is completely private for you. We will be happy to help you with any suggestions on things to do locally for fun or great food in the area. I know the BEST pizza place around!

Please feel free to enjoy our home as yours. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and we have a grill & fire pit in the backyard overlooking the lake (but would appreciate you not asking to use our hot tub).

We also have a printer/fax. If we can help in any way just please just ask!
