Lovely little spot right by the river in Rockford. It is centrally located and private. Also thanks for the snacks!

We came in late, and the place was lit up for us beautifully. Pro style. Every room was more amazing than the last. What a great space, with thoughtful details. We'd love to just come hang out here for a relaxing weekend tucked away on the river. Great job, guys!

Phil and Pete's apartment is a gem! Beautiful interior and view out across the river. An easy walk to downtown restaurants and riverwalk.

The unit is exactly as described and more. Loved it and wish I had been there for more than a night.

I was in town on business and stayed a night here and loved it! Very cool and unique apartment, tastefully decorated, comfortable and great lighting. Owners definitely put a lot of thought into this place. In the backyard there is a great outdoor patio overlooking the river. Perfect place to relax and have a drink. You don't even feel like you are in an urban area. I didn't get a lot of time to explore the downtown area, but there is a great microbrewery/restaurant (Prairie Street Brewery) minutes away on the other side of the river. I would come to Rockford again just to stay here.

Pete & Phil User ProfilePete & Phil is a superhost.

We are a father/son team who purchased this property together back in 2012. After falling in love with the historic neighborhood, beautiful boulder riverbank, scenic view and charming character, we knew this was a house that deserved a proper renovation.

Philip occupies the top half of the house and will be occasionally present and available to accommodate guests staying in the lower level suite. Pete lives close by directly across the river and can meet you for check-in's. He is also available for any needs or requests you may have during your stay.

We both know the city very well and are happy to help navigate and recommend places through out the area to enhance your experience.

Thank you for the interest. We hope to speak with you soon!
