About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms(Sleeps 4-6), 1 Bath (shower & tub), large living area

A unique country property includes late 1800 buildings (brick house, brick barn, brick ice house, brick granary converted to cottage, cyprus horse barn). Hike the fields and the timber. Watch for deer, turkey, heron, hummingbirds and hawks. Enjoy our
'hobby farm' with five 'mini-moos' and one lovable retired horse, two rescued mini-horses (and their colt born on the farm). The cottage is an 1870's granary with some walls containing original, handmade brick, surrounded and converted to a relaxing comfortable home.It is freshly painted and carpeted throughout, and has a full kitchen, and lovely but comfortable antiques. Garage/entry includes rubber boots in all sizes to traverse the three creeks or hike the meadows. Charcoal grill includes charcoal and lighter fluid for your use. Chimnea has freshly chopped wood stocked as well. There is a small fire pit, with a brick surround made from the same 1870's bricks. Wood is provided. The cottage has toys for children, although we asked that your children are supervised by an adult at all times, due to wandering animals, fences, and gates.

Close (15 min ) to Peoria, Caterpillar, Civic Center, St. Francis, Methodist, Proctor Hospitals, Riverfront. Enjoy Washington's unique and historical Town Square with antique malls, candy shoppes, caramel corn & ice cream, unique gifts, including local
arts and crafts. Enjoy the best gourmet coffee in the world at The Blend. Have lunch at Denhart's on the square restored 1800's restaurants loaded with character. There is a new steak house, and tasty local diners. There are the typical chains from pizza, to burgers, ice cream and chicken. Three grocery stores are nearby, as well as a super -store Walmart. Relax and enjoy the quiet at our hobby farm, and take a short drive to our charming town. Hop on the highway a few miles down the road and zip to Peoria for city attractions including shopping, river fun, sports and theater.
