Too short a visit!

Mr. Bill was extremely accommodating and helpful, and a great place to stay the night. Arrived late-ish, and wished we'd had more time to chat. Highly recommend it as a place to say.

Illinois farmstead

What a pleasant respite from the road for us weary RVers.
Mr. Bill was a welcoming and gracious host; so was the happy border collie, who probably would have come with us if we had let it. Mr. Bill responded quickly to our request to stay and helped us easily get situated.
Mr. Bill's small acreage and the surrounding corn fields provided a visual green feast morning thru evening while we lounged in our lawn chairs enjoying the northwestern breezes.
You will enjoy your stay there.

An oasis

A lovely late 1800s farm house, silos and several outbuildings set the stage for a pleasant stay on the fringes of the suburbs. A congenial host adds to the charm.

Great place, great welcome

I rolled in late afternoon to find the son expecting me and showing me round. Beautiful old house - same generation as the one owned by Abe Lincoln in Springfield, which I had visited earlier that day. Mr. Bill very friendly and helpful - even found me propane not far away, just off Hwy I-55 at a large, busy centre called Ric's RV. If you're in the area and need RV assistance this is the place (Shorewood, IL, just south of Chicago). Lots of helpful staff and everything else. Mr. Bill and his family made this a very pleasant visit.
