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!

The space

The deer are a very special part of being here. The tall windows are perfect for watching them in the back yard. A Stay In The Woods listing is the master bedroom of the house adjacent to the bathroom by a pocket door. The bathroom is shared. The BED IS A WATERBED and just about everyone loves it and gets a restful night's sleep on it.

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 90 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?!!

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.

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.

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.
