Nice large bedroom on our second floor with a spacious private bath just outside your door. A second similar bedroom is available for multiple guests in the same group at an additional fee on a case by case basis.

The space

Your private room is one of two large bedrooms on the second floor of our home. A bathroom, situated between the two rooms, accessible from the second floor landing/hallway, is a full bath with a deep bathing tub and shower.
The room has one double bed, as well as a dresser and a large closet. There is also a desk and a small fridge in the room

Guest access

There is a full kitchen in our finished basement which, depending on our occupancy, is either your shared or your private kitchen. Equipped with a full array of appliances and dinner and silverware, you'll just need to supply your own food. There are laundry facilities located on the same basement level. You're welcome to relax in our sun room, or lounge around on our wrap around porch.

Interaction with guests

We have both long term and short stay guests here so you're most likely to bump into someone.

Other things to note

Please note: There are two bedrooms listed and available on our second floor. In order to provide guests with exclusive use of the bathroom, we only offer one room at a time, unless both rooms are rented simultaneously by a family, a group, or two guests agreeing in advance to share the bath.

I stayed in the Studio apt above the garage. The studio is very comfortable with a private bath and a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and sink. The air conditioner is a BIG PLUS when Chicagoland summer nights stay sticky. John was VERY HELPFUL in making sure I had correct change for the parking at the nearby Metra Station, which made my morning train ride to Chicago much easier. Since the studio is above the garage there are angled ceilings--so I would caution taller guests to be watchful.

John and Sheryl are excellent, welcoming hosts. Their home is a comfortable and relaxing place to stay, in this case for a break from a long work commute made worse by construction.

John and Sheryl are gracious, accommodating hosts. Their home offers a relaxing, peaceful stay which I appreciate after long work days in the area. The location is great -- secluded and peaceful, yet close to area businesses and transportation.

John and Sheryl are excellent, welcoming hosts and their home provided a peaceful place to rest between long days at a nearby work project. I will definitely stay here again if I need the be in this area for work.

I was greeted with a smile from Sheryl and her Mom. The house is spacious indeed and that is an understatement. I really enjoy my stay there and I hope to stay there again when I come back to see my family in Chicago and out in the South Suburbs.

Unparalleled experience. John and Sheryl ruined it (in a good way) for my next host. They were the nicest people I've ever met. They welcomed me like family. I could go into details about that but this is a review and not an essay. Genuinely Great people.... Room & shower- clean, spacious, comfortable, beautiful. In brief I wouldn't stay anywhere else but at John and Sheryl's if I'm in the area. Thanks for hosting me, John and Sheryl.

We live in the home we built and moved into in 1991. I am a remodeling contractor, licensed Illinois home inspector and a landlord. My wife has a house cleaning business. We enjoy traveling and meeting new people and hearing their stories. We've been to Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany and England, Canada and Mexico. We've also seen much of the U. S, traveling by car, plane, train, and most recently by wending our way through its back roads in our motor home. Since 2008 we've been hosting foreign students from China and India in our home, broadening our view of the world even more by looking at it through their eyes.
We love good food, my wife is a fantastic cook, and really savor eating out at good restaurants on occasion. We have a greenhouse and raised beds in our backyard where we grow organic vegetables during the spring, summer and fall.
We joined the Airbnb community in 2015 and have met some interesting and delightful people. We look forward to meeting you.
