Disclaimer: This is not a luxury home or resort, by any means. It's a quaint, spacious and affordable short-term vacation rental, which is also a vacation home for my family of 6.
For more than a century, this property has provided tremendous value (for families, students and travelers) far beyond what any luxurious furniture, fixture, appliance or paint color can provide.
Nothing inside or outside the home is in perfect condition. You'll notice subtle flaws throughout the entire property, which is typical for a home of this age -- she turned 111 years old in 2021!
So, if you're looking for Ritz-Carlton's 5-star aesthetics, accommodations and amenities, I'd strongly encourage you to book a reservation at a different property.

The West End National Historic District is a residential historic district located in western Decatur, Illinois. The district, which was primarily built in the first half of the 20th century, includes over 1,700 contributing buildings. The West End was a popular neighborhood for Decatur's business owners and managers at its large industries, and the majority of its residents came from upper-middle class occupations; however, the district also had many working-class residents. A diverse array of architecture is featured in the district; twenty-three different architectural styles and twelve vernacular types are represented in its homes. The Dutch Colonial Revival and American Craftsman styles are the most prevalent, along with the latter's related vernacular type, the bungalow; the English Revival, Colonial Revival, Prairie School, and Georgian Revival styles also had a significant influence on the district's character.

The Decatur area offers an abundance of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. Go fishing on beautiful Lake Decatur and take a historic walking tour through downtown for a lighthearted look at Decatur’s colorful past. For the whole family there are everyday options such as the Scovill Zoo, Children’s Museum, swimming and bowling. Furthermore, the various athletic clubs make it possible to take outdoor activities—such as soccer and tennis—indoors. Beyond everyday options, there are possibilities such as live music and theater as well as art exhibits.
