We offer renters a large private upstairs apartment in our barn house. It is cozy and quiet, with a porch. Perfect for a unique country stay just outside of Champaign. Enjoy the surrounding native tallgrass prairie and our small farm. (¡Nos gusta platicar en español con los huéspedes, también!) NOTE: The sunroom (see "Guest access," below) is currently being used to store furnishings while they await donation. This does not compromise access to the apartment in any way.
“Heidi and family are utterly trustworthy and accommodating people. Most critically, in a time of ongoing pandemic with possible waves to come, Heidi, as a college science instructor, is more aware than most hosts of the absolute need to sanitize everything thoroughly between guests for the protection of them (and her own family). I felt totally safe. The location, too, is perfect for social distancing: a quick drive to Champaign or the mall but out in the country away from people. The guest space is so large, it almost feels like a rental *home* rather than a unit. And it is generously stocked with everything a traveler needs for longer term stays. Highly recommended!”
Our 150 yr old Victorian has been a labor of love and hate, as we remodel each room. It's our joy to open our home & we hope to be a blessing to all who visit but bring your slippers as there's no shoes allowed in our home! With Covid being a concern for us all, we ask that you wear a mask when interacting with other guests or our family. We look forward to seeing you soon!
“Lovely historic home! There are two bedroom options and a bathroom in the private upstairs where you’ll stay. I was the only guest so the whole upstairs (my room and bathroom) was my home away from home for a few days. The bed was very comfy and the accommodations worked perfectly for my needs. I was traveling with pets due to an event in the area and Shelley and Alan were very welcoming and flexible. I hope to stay again for the same event next year!”
