About this property

Entire place

You'll have the entire apartment to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

The artists' retreat

Upper level apartment in a 1930's duplex. Long flight of stairs to get up there, so keep that in mind when making a reservation.
Duplex has been completely renovated and beautifully decorated. Our goal is to set the stage for a creative stay. Overtime we will be building up a collection of art supplies, costumes, board games, and other non electronic activities to enjoy. The duplex shares an acre of land with our 1959 home and is located about a mile from the state capital/downtown.
The apartment has two bedrooms, and a full size bed in each room. Full kitchen with basic cooking needs and laundry available. The yard is beautiful and filled with flowers. We have chickens on the property so fresh eggs are available anytime. We put in a huge garden every year so fresh vegetables are also available, in season. The yard fills with pollinators, Monarchs and Swallowtails in mass, as we do not use any pesticides and are putting in native Illinois plants throughout the yard. We also have a koi pond with waterfall.
