It’s summertime! Get your grill on and hang out on the deck in the fenced in backyard. Toast some marshmallows over the fire pit in the evening and relax and recharge in this clean, comfortable and convenient home located just minutes from Starved Rock, Matthiessen & Buffalo Rock State parks. Walk to downtown with great local dining, wine tasting, Star Union Spirits Distillery in the historic Westclox building and boutique & antique shopping. Bring the kids- bring your dog!

The space
**Due to COVID19, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations.**

(If you have a dog, a pet cleaning fee is required; $25.00 for up to 2 dogs. Simply let me know in your introductory email that you are bringing your furry friend and I will send the fee request. Thanks!)

**For the remainder of the summer, I am only able to accept weekend bookings that include both Friday and Saturday nights. Thank you for your understanding.**

This bright and colorful 2 bedroom with bonus room, 1 ½ bath home has everything you need for your getaway! So, pack a weekender bag and head down for a little escape in Starved Rock Country.

Relax in the platform beds with memory foam mattresses and crisp, white linens and feather duvets.

Get your chef on in the fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances, cookware and dinnerware you'll need for eight. All you need to bring is your imagination and a good bottle of wine. Coffee and tea are available for the morning.

The bathrooms are stocked with fresh towels and all the basic amenities- just pack a toothbrush.

This home is full of light, vibrant colors and designer touches.

The home sleeps 8 guests.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and the upstairs bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a full size sleeper sofa in the living room and double futon in the upstairs common room- perfect for kids.
