Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Lower duplex apartment. Beautifully furnished and in a mid century modern/ early 70s feel. :) Things to expect here: An acre of land, many ongoing projects, a peaceful retreat, a creative space, organic gardening, fruit trees, koi pond, flowers, in season, swarms of butterflies, in season and a small flock of chickens, all the time.
There is television and WiFi.

The space
Because its 2020 I have to start with the unfun stuff. Covid-19. Justin and I take it very seriously. We do all the cleaning ourselves. I had planned on hiring help for the cleans, but that was before covid. Now I like to know without a doubt that everything has been cleaned and sanitized. Beyond just cleaning though we also take other precautions. Personally, we do not leave the property very much, have most groceries and such delivered and keep our contact with other people to a bare minimum. In this way we keep our risk low. We do not allow parties, additional people and have a maximum capacity of 4 people in the apartment. This also minimizes risk. We are doing everything we can to ensure your safety.
We bought this property in 2012 it is an acre lot in the middle of the Historic Westside in Springfield, IL. There’s a house and duplex on the property. The house had been abandoned for almost two years when we bought it. We gutted the house down to the studs and rebuilt it from the foundation up. My husband and I did most of the work ourselves...which is why it’s taken so long! :)

This apartment is the lower level of a 1939 Duplex. The Duplex shares an acre of land with a house originally built in 1859. We live in the upper unit of the tri-plex. The place is set up to look like you've walked into a 1970s early 80s home. Decorating was alot of fun...I'm a regular at Goodwill. :)
Have a working atari, super nintendo, vhs player, 8 track tape player - and other older technology. Oh and a kind of hidden clubhouse area with blacklights and blacklight posters. :)
And Remeber... NO PARTIES.
