We stayed at Pheasant Valley Farms on our way down to southern Illinois to view the total solar eclipse. John was a wonderful host. He made us feel very at home. He gave us a tour of his farm/vineyard and even brought us watermelon for a treat in the evening. Thanks, John. We loved the farmhouse!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pheasant Valley Farms for a day to relax and enjoy some time together. We absolutely loved our experience. The land surrounding the home is absolutely beautiful which made for a peaceful stay. We spent most of our time sitting on the front patio porch swing taking in our beautiful surroundings. John and Vicky were incredibly accommodating and gracious. We were greeted with a bottle of wine (made from grapes on their farm!) and they were kind enough to have breakfast items ready for us for the morning. We even got to enjoy a tour around the farm on John's awesome toy, a seemingly high powered golf cart, for lack of a better name :) We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

It is definitely off the beaten path, but is a great cottage. We were passing through on our road trip home, but hope to come back sometime and really enjoy what the farm has to offer.

We decided we needed a nice quiet weekend away, and booked this only a couple days in advance. We have a very enjoyable, restful weekend in the country on John and Vicki's farm / wildlife reserve. The house was spotless and very much as described. This is rural central Illinois at its best. John took the time to show us around the property, made excellent winery and restaurant recommendations, and went to great lengths to assure our comfort. He even left bacon, eggs, OJ, milk, and stuff for us to make breakfast. Bottom line, we were very happy we stayed, and hope to do so again sometime.

John and Vicki were very welcoming. All the little touches throughout the home were spot on. The home was comfortable and all conviences we needed were provided. Beautiful setting, with trails, berries and wild life. Without doubt the most relaxing vacation my family and I have been on. If you want to experiences country living with all the necessities this place is for you. John and Vicki are very accommodating host and make every effort to make your stay comfortable!!

The place is cute and mostly comfortable. The hosts were quick to accommodate an early check in which saved us having to find the place in the middle of the night. The air conditioning was great. I liked sitting on the porch for a short while and my husband enjoyed reading in the bay window. We were interested in two bedrooms. The second room, however, to our surprise, was an outbuilding off to the side that had a lot of spiders and spiderwebs, too many to house our daughter. Thankfully, the couch in the main house pulled out to a bed and we were spared there. We were more than surprised and disappointed after we arrived to learn we had to place paper products for the toilet in a trash can. Between the second bedroom and lack of plumbing, we would have stayed elsewhere. There is a stream, but no access to it. Cute place if you want to sit on the porch and read.

Response from Pheasant Valley Farms:
We are sorry for Denise's disappointment in her brief stay at our place. There is no lack of plumbing and the septic tank is scheduled to be repaired this month. If she would have voiced the concerns to us we would have explained. The second bedroom she thought was available is at our other home on the property and we have corrected that misunderstanding on the website. The summer kitchen that she mentioned was set up for the previous guests,

John and Vicki were so welcoming, even during a pretty heavy down pour! The farmhouse was exactly what we were looking for in an escape--a quiet and semi-remote place with a lot to do outside. The pictures are accurate, as are the descriptions provided. Games, puzzles, and dvd/vcr are available for use--if you have young kids bring dvds for them, the selection available is great (Dirty Dancing!) but not targeted for littles. All in all, it was a lovely stay, even if we had to cut it short due to weather (constant rain) induced cabin fever. We're definitely taking John up on the IOU to come back and tour the wineries in the future! Thanks for letting me take home all the delicious cookies...they were fantastic!

My name is John and I have enjoyed growing up and living on a farm in Illinois. I have owned and farmed my 236 acres since 1976.
When my wife and I acquired more aces with another farmhouse, we decided 7 years ago to make one of the houses a BnB. We are proud of Pheasant Valley Farms and all that it has to offer.
I enjoy being with people and showing them the farms and what they have to offer. I will hike with you, fish with you, show you the local wineries, or just leave you to yourselves to enjoy a quiet relaxing day. I am here to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
