Property description

Ever dream of peaceful, idyllic farm life? Enjoy an Illinois farm stay in our gorgeous 100 year old house on a 10 acre family farm. The goats and chickens await you, and chores are optional!

This beautiful, 'clean, modern' restored farm house rental will provide you an unforgettable getaway. Our house features large windows in every room, gleaming hardwood floors, a fully-furnished kitchen with all new appliances, and a luxurious upstairs bathroom with a clawfoot tub, separate shower, and radiant floor heat. Master bedroom has queen Tempur-pedic bed. There's also a baby grand piano for music lovers!

We also renter a master suite in the house across the street and a cottage on the same property.

Kids & adults alike will be captivated with farm animals and many spaces to explore, inside & out. There are many permaculture & restoration agriculture features of our farm; a stay here is a great opportunity to experience sustainability in action.

We bought this house near our family and roots in Illinois when it came on the market even though our jobs will keep us in a different state for the foreseeable future. We love the chance to leave our home in congested Orange County, California, and experience the incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating farm life in beautiful rural Central Illinois. Our kids have gained so much from the freedom and responsibility they have on the farm. They have learned to milk and do many types of farm chores. Spending time here is a unique opportunity in this day and age, and one that we are happy to be able to share with you!

Grass fed local eggs and organically raised produce seasonally available for purchase - inquire in advance of your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sun Dappled Farms is the work of two sisters who grew up in the house across the street from this property. Kate moved back home to Illinois in 2008 after living in New York City & New Jersey for over 20 years. A graduate of chef school, she became interested in grass farming in her pursuit of nutritious, delicious, and environmentally-friendly food. Sister Kris lives in Southern California but shares the passion for farming & food.

Why the Owner Chose Peoria:
We had always loved the house and the pasture that makes up the six acres on this side of the road. When the property came up for sale in 2009, sister Kris & her husband felt fortunate to be able to buy it. We have enjoyed introducing people from around the world to our little slice of paradise.
