My place is close to Southern Illinois University (1.5 miles), Shawnee National Forrest, Giant City State Park, many wineries. You’ll love my place because of It's clean and quiet. Both upstairs bedrooms, bathroom, * loft and balcony are yours to enjoy. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
My husband and I will stick to the first floor of our home while you visit, giving you free reign upstairs.
*The loft is open to our downstairs area.

The space

We have some games, books, movies, etc. guests can use--please ask us to show you where to find them!
There is an open loft with plenty of space to sit and hang out, and a table with 2 chairs on the balcony just for you!

Guest access

The entire upstairs is available to use, including the balcony that looks out at our back yard.

You will be given a key to use the front door; please always lock it behind you.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I both work full time for the university, but usually one of us can be reached by text/call fairly quickly.

Also, this house is our primary residence, so we will not be far away--often just downstairs--if you need us!

Other things to note

The front bedroom has a TV, which has a VCR/DVD player, and dozens of movie/show options. There is no network/cable access from the tv.
The back bedroom has a desk. The desk & chair are antique; please handle with care.

Rachel and Yi were so welcoming, and they have a lovely home. Even though it's part of their house, our rooms felt really private, and nothing was too much trouble. Highly, highly recommended.

Great space, 2 nice sized bedrooms, nice sitting space, and a really nice bath with twin sinks. Breakfast balcony overlooking the backyard.

Very clean and bright rooms. Rachel and her family were very accommodating and kind, making room in their fridge for food we had in our cooler. One concern was that the sitting room is on an open balcony, with her family's living room right below, so we could hear everything they were saying or watching on TV.

Wonderful location for a quiet stay! Our hosts were so friendly and easy to communicate with. Future guests will have the whole upstairs to themselves and access to the kitchen is really easy. Very clean and cozy. Definitely would stay here again on a future trip.

I work for SIU Aviation; I love learning new languages, meeting people from different places, and hosting them; I love food too much; I try to love Jesus; I don't like fish or seafood; watching a thunderstorm, on the porch, wrapped in a blanket with a glass of wine is close to my favorite thing in the world. These were the first random thoughts that came to my head!
