About the owner: My husband and I used the River House as our weekend getaway, before we moved here from the Chicago suburbs. We are both from the Midwest (Wisconsin and Illinois). I am a retired teacher, and my husband is a retired sheet metal worker. We lived in the River House full time while we were building our house next door. This area is really beautiful, and we enjoy boating, the sunsets, and the quiet, although we do head into Chicago frequently to enjoy theater and other city things. My favorite time here is in the fall and winter, when it is extra beautiful on the River. People are friendly here, and the neighbors will welcome you.
Why the Owner Chose Thomson, IL, USA:
The River House is a great getaway. It is only 2 1/2 hours from Chicago, which is very convenient. It is a quiet, relaxing place in the woods on the Mississippi River with a spectacular view. Since the house has a wrap-around deck overlooking the river, you can eat outside and enjoy the fresh air and the view. The house is on one floor, and there are few steps to worry about.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Since the house is on a wooded cul-de-sac, the area is very peaceful and quiet. Yet nearby there are many wineries, quilting shops, and antique shops to enjoy. Boating on the river is wonderful.
