The SpacePerfect serenity for you. Your atmospheric bedroom is complete with super-comfortable double bed, library, your own basket of teas, cocoa and snacks. A Bentwood rocker for relaxing or serious desk for work. Your own private bathroom and closet stocked with toiletries. Great central location-between Chicago and St. Louis, or if traveling across the country, just off Interstate 74. Great location, price, off street parking, wi-fi and a free, light, home-made breakfast makes this a relaxing and unique choice to stay! Guests have stayed as little as a one night stop-over, and for as long as a month for work assignments.
This contemporary home is located in the perfect, quiet neighborhood. Location, privacy of your room and private bathroom and a great, light breakfast are the highlights. Walking distance to State Farm South and very near other SF locations, close to the airport, and right off of the main road-Veterans Parkway. A straight shot to downtown Bloomington and a short drive to Illinois Wesleyan, ISU and Heartland campuses. You can't get better than this. A bus stop is 4 short blocks on Oakland Ave.
If you are booking your room with us on short notice, please resubmit your request if you don't hear from me in the 24 hour "hold" time AirBnB has established. I check daily, but I might miss your message if I am on the road delivering art to an exhibit.
More info: Your private room and private bathroom are both newly remodeled and newly carpeted. Your hall closet is stocked with towels and amenities. You have complete privacy to work or rest and relax.
Light homemade breakfast included. Based on rave reviews, we can make you organic oatmeal with dried fruit, or toast with homemade jams, coffee or lots of different teas. If you have a favorite cereal you like to bring, you can use the kitchen for your preferred cereal or special meal. We are super-flexible about that. Kitchen is available to you to prepare light meals in the evening. If you have to leave early in the morning and want to grab something quick, Starbucks, Hardees and Panera are all very nearby on Veterans Parkway.
Large deck overlooking tree-filled yard, great place for breakfast or working. Guest have really enjoyed relaxing and eating on the deck. Ideal for business traveler, or anyone needing a replenishing stay as you travel. On hand: ironing board/iron, mending supplies, odds and ends you might need during your stay. Just ask!
Shopping and dinning are just around the corner: Walgreens on the corner of Veterans for quick needs and Eastland Mall nearby. For meals - Panera, Olive Garden, Denny's, Red Lobster and local faves Jim's Steak House, Thai House and Biaggi's are, all very nearby, several within walking distance.
Non-Smoker, No Pets. We strive to have an allergy and dander-free place for our guests so we are really sorry we cannot accommodate pets. Please provide your work and cel phone number, picture and purpose for your trip. We require previous positive reviews from AirBnB hosts.
Please note: If you are new to this site, AirBnB does not reveal our phone numbers until I confirm your request, then we can finalize any arrival details over the phone. Just rebook with me if the 24 hour "hold" might have expired. There are a few "submit" buttons to hit for your request to go through; some folks think they reached me but the request was not fully submitted. Takes a bit to get used to. I look forward to your visit. Guest AccessGuests have free wifi, use of kitchen for a light meal, endless cups of coffee or tea, use of back deck in good weather, off-street parking and a great library of interesting books in your guest room. Interaction with GuestsWe leave it up to the guest to interact as he or she needs things. Some guest are very busy and we make their stay streamlined. Others have some time to wind down after the meeting or event they are in town for. We have met such diverse people from the US, Europe, Canada, Asia and have great conversations and memories! The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is quiet and the back yard is fantastic, green, shady and full of birds. We are near about everything in town. Guests have walked to work assignments at State Farm from our house. Others got up early to jog on the bike path nearby. So many choices, including sleeping in, which happens a lot. Getting AroundBus is 4 blocks away. We are right off Veteran's parkway which is the main beltway.
