Общение с гостями
You will have ready access to area information as well as stories that will engage you in the environs and history of my home. I grew up here and will enjoy sharing with you if you're in the mood! I will generally be on the property in another lodging space, but can engage with the guests as much as they desire.

I have lived in this home since I was 4 years old, and want to share its wonderful setting and amenities. I am a retired farmer/Illinois legislator interested in hosting new friends. I love the outdoors, and this is the perfect place to explore the prairies, woods, and rivers I grew up with.
