What I love about our house encompasses a number of things. The top three would be the ranch style of home, so everything is on one level. Second would be the stone fireplace, picture window with an occasional deer outside! Third would be the woods!

House Rules

We do not smoke or drink but have had guests who smoke and they go outside of course. We would appreciate that drinking be kept to a minimum. If you would like to have friends over please let us know. We just need to be aware of anyone who is in the home. Please turn off lights when you leave a room and especially when you leave the house. The parking area for guests is by the road just inside the property at the curve. We will discuss that further when you are here.

My wife& I were greeted with open arms. We met Ruth & her 92yr old father that served in WW2 for the air force. We didn't get to stay around long due to graduation but the hospitality was great. If you're looking to escape the hustle bustle this is a great place to stay.

Ruth's place is just as I expected it to be, which was wonderful. Ruth was not there, but she had another guest named Joe who was extremely welcoming. Did not realize it was a water bed, but I still slept very well. Would stay here again.

Ruth and her family were very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. I hadn't slept on a waterbed in years and it felt great.

Response from Ruth:
It was such a treat to meet you and your husband and see your beautiful jewelry you've created at the Park Forest Art Show. Glad you enjoyed that waterbed! Please come again.
