Richard and Karen M.: We loved the history related to the house and the old charm. High ceilings, wonderful woodwork, very clean and well maintained. I recommend a visit to nearby Necedah Wildlife Refuge. Chicago, IL
Julia, Peter, Martin Karen & Richard: We had a lovely time here. It was our second time here in the house and we enjoyed it again very much. It was a cozy stay in this old farmhouse. Three of us are originally from Slovakia so it reminds us of our very Dear Grandma’s place. Thanks very much! Chicago, IL
