My stay with Rick was absolutely lovely. I flew into Willard airport and didn't have use of a car, so Rick very kindly picked me up. It was a little late for me to head out to find something for dinner, so he also offered me a very tasty roast that he already had in the oven! …

Rick is a excellent host! His welcome and the room was just perfect! Coming to UIUC for the year, he showed the area and drove us to many stores to buy what we needed to settle in. Rick is also very generous and very friendly. It was a great stay and we highly recommend this host…
