Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Built by the vice president of the Purington Brick Factory in 1914, this 100+ year old home has been beautifully maintained for over a century. The downstairs space has a shower, sink, double pillowtop mattress, 43" TV and is conveniently located close to Knox College and downtown. If you're looking for a large private space, I also own the Custer Carriage House in Galesburg which you can rent on Airbnb.

The space
very clean, comfortable, and convenient. I am here most of the time and you will hear me upstairs during the day working.
The shower and bathroom sink are located "en suite" in the space, toilet is at the top of the stairs.
Quiet hours are between 10 pm and 7am.

Where you’ll be

Galesburg, Illinois, United States

The neighborhood was built when Galesburg was booming with industry. Located just a half block off North Broad St., it would have been the first house on the block, and constructed by the many tradesmen associated with the Purington Brick Factory.
This Prairie House would have been a shocking contrast to the Grand Victorians in the neighborhood.

I am from the Galesburg community, and I graduated from Knox College. I returned to Galesburg in 2015, and purchased my first home in the area. As a frequent traveler, who enjoys the experience of an Airbnb, I believe my convenient spaces are a welcome retreat for people visiting family, or attending events in the area. I host two Airbnb's, the "Custer Carriage House Downtown Galesburg" an entire home, and the "En Suite in Historic Home in Galesburg" which is a private space. I love to promote Galesburg history, and I am currently a board member of the Galesburg Civic Art Center.

During your stay

During the weekdays I am primarily on the first floor, in the kitchen and office. You will hear me upstairs during working hours. I work in California, and I have meeting between 10 am and 7 pm. I respond quickly to messages.

I will not enter your space during your stay, however I occasionally need access to the washer and dryer, although I try to do laundry when I have no guests.

You will have the rooms downstairs which include a shower, sink, couch, chair, table with two chairs, coffee maker, microwave and small refrigerator. You will also have your own toilet and small sink at the top of the stairs.

The red curtain near the guest bathroom is added for additional privacy. The main kitchen is not available for guest use.
