Other things to note

After visiting Roberts’ Roost Country Guest House, you will have no doubts as to why Connie’s ancestors chose to settle in this beautiful area in 1860. The land that Roberts’ Roost rests on has been in the Roberts’ family for five generations. I sincerely hope all of our guests will arrive as friends and leave as family. I think you will find after spending a few quiet days in the country you will be able to return to your hectic life feeling renewed, refreshed, and relaxed. My husband Dennis and I are looking forward to meeting you!

We really, truly had a great time at Connie's house. We had a couple of early fall beautiful days there, and enjoyed the yard with everything that it has to offer. We had a coffee in the morning in the front, barbecue and dinner in the back of the house, and our daughter was running around all day, and enjoyed fresh air... We enjoyed eggs, bacon and bread Connie left for us. We also visited Connie at Farmers markets in Savanna and got some fresh and tasty ( better then organic) local produce as well. All in all it was such a relaxing and refreshing time and precious getaway from our hectic urban life. Thank you Connie and Dennis. :)

Connie made it easy to make reservations and arranged to meet us at the home to show us around. It's clean and comfortable. Very peaceful. Great to relax and reconnect.

The Roost is a quiet, secluded get-a-way for those looking to escape the city. It's nestled in the rolling hills of Northwest Illinois and is close to great hiking locations and the beautiful Mississippi. It has a huge outdoor area which was perfect for our six month son to crawl around in and for us to relax on the many provided outdoor lounge chairs. Watching the fireflies at night was a major highlight. I highly recommend for those looking for a peaceful and restful vacation.

Connie and her husband met us for check in and gave us a detailed walk through of the home, as well as some suggestions for things to do in the area. The home itself was updated and clean. When you feel like you're at home, that's when you know a vacation rental has done a good job! The breakfast Connie left us was a wonderful touch, and we cant wait to come back here again. TIP: Light a bonfire around sunset - the views are incredible. 10/10!

Roberts' Roost rests on a small parcel of land that has been in my family for over 160 years. Five generations of the Roberts' family have lived and worked this ground. I love gardening and was awarded a State Master Gardener award through the University of Illinois Extension in 2007. I also love nature photography and wildlife. I have owned and operated Land of Oz Dolls making antique reproduction porcelain dolls since 1979. I am a volunteer for U.S. Fish and Wildlife and conduct tours around the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge here in Savanna.
