Description

Come spend some time hidden in the Fox valley just a few miles outside of town.

Make yourself at home at our cozy lower level retreat. We are offering the entire lower level of our split-level house, which is a 400 square foot space with a locking door, featuring a king size bed, a fold-out futon and a private half bathroom. The full bathroom upstairs with a shower is of course available for guests as well, and is shared by our family.

The house is located in an unincorporated neighborhood 3.5 miles north of vibrant downtown St. Charles.

Enjoy a king bed with an authentic barn wood headboard plus a fold-out futon for additional sleep space. Snuggle up under the giant quilt and enjoy all the Netflix you can watch on a 43 inch screen. It gets dark here at night, so feel free to turn on the lanterns in the headboard or the twinkly Christmas lights around the room. We enjoyed putting this room together and it gave us a chance to exercise our creativity by building the bed and creating most of the artwork on the walls, either by photographing or painting.

There’s a coffee maker, a mini fridge to hold the leftovers from your evening out, and a microwave to heat them up. Go ahead and play the drums between 9am and 8pm if you’re into making a racket like me.

The private lower level bathroom is what I would call "half-finished", meaning some of the walls are painted concrete, and there is a water heater in the corner. It's not gross or anything, in fact I think it has an industrial-chic charm, but Cindy wants me to make a point about the bathroom's idiosyncrasies :)

About Us:

We are a family of four; my wife and I, and two girls ages 8 and 3, and we do live in the house. Cindy and I both grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and lived a few miles north in Elgin for 10 years. After years of admiring the Valley View area of St. Charles, we bought our house here this summer of 2017. Allergy alert: we also have two cats but they are not allowed in the lower level.

Within 5 minutes:

50-acre Riverbend Community Park is about one block north and contains basketball and tennis courts, baseball fields, a skate park, dog run area, and playground. Within about a 1 mile radius, you’ll find the steep maple and oak lined bluffs of Tekakwitha Woods, and one of Al Capone’s former speakeasies, hidden away down next to the Fox River. Go fishing at a quiet park, dare to take a ride along the sinking street that hugs the big bend of the river, or hop on the scenic bike path that follows the river 15 miles north and 20 miles south of St. Charles.

Within 10 minutes:

Drive down the tree lined hills of route 25 to Illinois’ tri-cities (St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia), a cluster of three quaint and historic towns along the Fox River with shopping, dining, and charming river walks. Take an afternoon to visit the Fabyan windmill in Geneva, see a show at the Arcada Theater in downtown St. Charles, or cross the river and see the 8-foot cascading waterfall hidden in the forest preserve.

Within 30 minutes:

Drive 30 minutes to O’Hare Airport, Schaumburg’s Woodfield Mall, Ikea, Sears Center Arena, Fermie Lab, Paramount Theater, Arlington Race Track

Within 1 Hour:

Downtown Chicago, Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Allstate Arena, Northern Illinois University

Interaction with guest

My wife and I are in our thirties. We aren't exactly social butterflies by nature (unlike our 8 year old daughter), but we're excited about meeting and hosting guests. We work a lot of opposite shifts to make ends meet and are excited about this new part of our journey. Whichever one of us is home, just let us know what you need and we'll do our best to figure it out for you!
