This was a great home for a work conference in the area, it had everything we needed. I will certainly look into this home again next year for the same trip. The couple was easy to work with and where accessible if any needs arose.
Charming & comfortable 2 bedroom home
We loved our 10 day stay at this wonderfully appointed and clean home. Bedrooms were comfy with lots of closet and drawer space. There’s literally nothing you need in the kitchen except your food. Decor was light and airy. We truly felt ‘at home’ during our stay. It’s close to I-80 which gave us quick access to Chicago and Northwest Indiana. The Calumet Bakery is a short walk around the corner and not to be missed! Numerous good eating establishments are minutes away on either Torrance or Ridge Rd. We took daily walks in the quaint neighborhood. Yes, there are trains that run during the night but the distant sound of a train is soothing and didn’t interrupt our sleep. Yes, the floors creak in spots but again it’s the charm that comes with an older home and nothing disruptive. I enjoyed having morning coffee on the front porch watching Lansing wake-up. Ridge road is a busy and sometimes noisy street but all the positives of this home, the privacy and it’s location more than compensates. We loved our stay and look forward to a repeat visit.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful, detailed review. We surely hope to have you again in the future.
super clean, comfortable, corresponded our expectations
We enjoyed the week very much. It was super clean and prepared for us.
It did not take long to get to down town Chicago. Lansing has a lot of stores and restaurant so we got what we needed very easily.
We would stay there again!
Thank you for the great review and caring for the home as if it was your own😊.
Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay!
Clean, comfortable, well-furnished, great hosts, .........but front bedroom faces a busy street and floors and door hinges creak so bad that baby and light sleeper could not get through the night undisturbed. Probably not an issue if you don't have a baby or light sleeper in your party.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. So sorry that your baby couldn’t sleep. We can certainly relate being parents of 3 girls. Unfortunately the home is over 60 years old, on a main street and does have some squeaks and creaks. Thanks again for sharing.
Very clean! GREAT AREA!
I LOVE WILL DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN!
Cozy property with a good location.
Clean, comfortable and located near the expressway to Chicago and northwest Indiana. John and Cindy are great hosts and attentive to your needs.
Thank you for the great review! Hope to have you back in the future.
