The SpaceOur listing is unique because it's a lake house in central Illinois. There aren't too many of these and it's quite peaceful on a mature, wooded plot of 2 acres. This listing is for one bedroom but please see our other listing if you need additional space for up to 6 guests. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6481172?guests=4&s=KMuJAgIb
You may be sharing the common area with other guests if the other private bedroom is rented at the same time, although this rarely happens. If you have concerns about this we recommend you book the entire basement in our aforementioned listing or contact us to see what can be arranged. Guest AccessGuests will have access to nearly everything. Our paddle boat, fishing gear, big movie screen in the basement, large deck overlooking the lake, laundry, and all other amenities are included. Coffee, breakfasts, snacks or other food can be arranged at the time of booking for a TBD additional fee. Interaction with GuestsWe most likely will be here during your stay, but we won't disturb you. You may see us in passing as we do laundry, retrieve something from the basement or as you come and go. We can be available as needed for restaurant advice or conversation as our schedules allow. The NeighborhoodThe homeowner's association is mostly older folks. The neighborhood is currently changing over to more younger families with kids however. We love our neighbors, and the entire division of homes is secluded away from the town, so there isn't a lot of traffic. We're just outside of a small town that has a great pub and coffee shop and not much farther is Peoria with loads of great restaurants and shopping. Getting AroundYour transportation is on your own as we live in the country and there is no public transportation, unless you call a cab. We take walks or run around the lake, but otherwise you'll have to travel for restaurants and parks. Other Things to NoteWe have a very friendly cat that has full reign of the house although you can close your private room to keep him out if you wish.
