An extremely comfortable sofa bed couch that some have told me is the best night's sleep they have ever had! Great place if you only need to crash for the night while passing through but I've had some stay for weeks as well.

The space

The deer are a very special part of being here. The tall windows are perfect for watching them in the back yard.

Guest access

Your designated sleeping area of course, the front room where the piano is, the family room where the fireplace and TV are, the kitchen, laundry room and master bathroom. If the master bathroom is being used the second bathroom can also be used but let us know before you do. When other guests are here they will be sharing the master bathroom with you. There are two pocket doors into the shower area and master bedroom area.

Interaction with guests

We will be available to help in person, by text, phone or email. We want you to feel comfortable and communicate whatever may be on your mind.

Other things to note

My father lives with us and his bedroom also has an office area in it. He shares the bathroom with any guests staying in the house. He works in the office and does little projects around the house. He loves to garden in the summer. He loves to converse and if you are home when he is please feel free to get to know him. Is is a very sharp 91 year old WW II Veteran, Retired Air Force Major Navigator. He flew the B24 in WWII and the C124 in Viet Nam. His reserve time in Viet Nam was his most dangerous time in the service. Most people enjoy him very much. My husband Don you may also run in to who is also a great conversationalist and is quite a comedian. Helps in life doesn't it?!!

Ruth was a fantastic host. She was super friendly, hospitable, and helpful! She also saved us almost $100 by recommending a better way to travel into Chicago. Speaking of, the location was perfect. Located less than 2 miles away from Richton Park, we were able to go all the way to Chicago and back for $9.50 ($1.50 daily parking, $8 weekend Metra pass). Definitely would recommend Ruth to anyone who wanted to visit Chicago.

To start with, Ruth was gone, so her husband was the one that welcomed us in the home. Immediately he started talking about religion, and it became evident that he was a devout Christian. I honestly couldn’t care less, but I don’t share those beliefs. He asked if I believed in God (which is inappropriate), and when I said I didn’t, he went on to ask if I believed in the dirt on the ground. It was like a 20 minute conversation of him telling me I should listen to him more, and others should be more open minded, but not him. At the end, he had the audacity to say I shouldn’t be offended, that basically him insulting my beliefs is alright. I wouldn’t say I was offended, but I certainly didn’t feel welcomed.

Oh my! Had no idea about this happening. This approach by Donny was totally inappropriate like you said. Just to be clear, Donny is anything BUT a devout Christian but likes to think he is. If my father and I had been there this would not have happened. I am so sorry that you experienced a negative reception when most of my guests have only positive things to say about their entire time in my home. I wish you all the best and hope to meet you again under different circumstances.

Ruth and her father were very accommodating. I arrived at their place later than expected after leaving Chicago. Their place was perfect for my needs, which was simply a place to crash. It was an honour getting to meet her father, a WWII veteran from the "greatest generation". Thank you so much for your service Sir!
