Very friendly and accommodating host. Good communicators, and had lots of very useful amenities to offer; WiFi, water, electric, garbage can, and they even gave us a list of activities and things to do and see in their area. I wish we would have had time to explore their community more, but we have a son that live just a few miles from the host site, and we spent our time visiting him.
I just have to say that this young couple go “over the top” at being great host.
Wonderful welcome from the hosts. Home area is great & in a great location. This location is minutes away from everything.
We had the pleasure of staying with the hosts for a few days while we explored Chicago. They went above and beyond to make us feel right at home. We were greeted with an info sheet and a gift which was a very nice and an unexpected surprise.
Be sure to ask them about their adorable crafts for sale. These two are VERY talented!
Had a safe pretty quiet night and were so happy to find we had much in common.
Our hosts were perfect In the way they greeted us and sent us off. So very friendly.
Look forward to repeating on way to our family in OH.
We had such a wonderful stay despite the rainy weather and appreciated the welcome gift very much, such a nice gesture that made us feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived! We were able to back our 35' TT in without any problems, and appreciated the use of utilities during our stay. We enjoyed being in a spot where we could easily visit Chicago for a day and the town is SO cute with many great parks along the river. We enjoyed chatting by the fire one night so the kids could roast hot dogs, and my oldest daughter looks adorable in some hand-me-downs that we got to go through before they went to the thrift shop! We were able to order delivery 2 different nights during our stay (pizza from Lou Malnati's and hot dogs from Portillo's - yum!) and get the food delivered right to our door (which is not always possible when boondocking!). We had a great time visiting and would love to visit again in the future and keep in touch with the hosts - really great people!
A and D were awesome hosts who made sure we feel in love with the area. They greeted us with a local wine as well as a list of everything in the area to see or experience! We enjoyed conversations by a fire, Crawdad hunting, and a fun trip down the Fox River. We do hope they visit our way and they will definitely be in our memories!
They’re wonderful and generous people. We had a great stay at their place.
We had a great time staying here. They’re great hosts, we’re thankful for their hospitality! It was great talking to them. They even received us with a welcome gift. We were not expecting that much! This is a great location, we liked walking to the park and the library. Only a 12 minute drive to the train station, very easy to go to all the way to Chicago union station. We hope to see these hosts again!
This stay was perfect. Easy back into a more than long enough driveway.
We were greeted upon arrival and ensured we had everything we needed, including a plug and water. The water was especially great because its so hard to find working faucets this time of year. Also told us about some of the local sights and things to do.
Our hosts were so nice. We sat around the fire for a few hours our first night talking about our travels and stuff. And they shared some local wine and beer.
They even allowed us to extend our stay a couple days while we worked out our next stops and move to chicago.
We would definitely reccomend them to anyone coming through the area or visiting chicago.
