About the Property

Comfortably accommodates up to 8 guests

I have 1 permanent resident who lives upstairs - which leaves the entire first floor of the home available for you! The only shared space is the kitchen and laundry room. Dennis has been here since before I started renting on this site and he is extremely easy going, quiet, and helpful. As past guests who have stayed here say... "His schedule is such that you will rarely see him."

The home has 3 bedrooms on the first floor, which will comfortably accommodate up to 8 people. The first room has one king size bed and a queen sleeper sofa. There is a queen size bed in another room and a king size bed in the other. There are 2 full bathrooms available for your private use. You have full access/use of the kitchen, laundry room, living room, and dining area.

The house is pet friendly on a one acre lot - half of which is fenced in, quiet neighborhood, large back deck, outdoor seating for 8, grill, fire pit for bonfires, wifi.
My home is located 1.5 miles from train station in beautiful downtown Glen Ellyn. There are wonderful options for dining and shopping. Travel on the prairie path to neighboring cities such as Wheaton or Lombard.
The Great Western Trail is located adjacent to the back yard. Good for cycling or jogging.
Close to North Ave and 355 for easy commute to the city (30 miles via highway). Train is also just as easy! Please read the reviews and feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Thank you! ~Heather

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I have been a middle school art teacher for 17 years. I also create commissioned works of art - mainly watercolors and oil pastels. I absolutely love my home and my neighborhood. I have used VRBO to travel for the past 9 years and loved every place I have stayed. I had this extra space in my home and thought, 'Why not put it on the site and see what happens?!' So here I am, after 10 months of listings and several wonderful guests, feeling blessed to share my home with you....

Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellyn, IL, USA:
My father purchased this property back in 1989. He passed away in 2006 and I have since redecorated and made it my own. The location of the home has been what brings all of my guests. It's close to their family, friends or business acquaintances in Glen Ellyn and the surrounding areas.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefits of staying here are the amount of space you have access to, the kitchen and the back yard. Although there is 1 permanent resident, our schedules are such that we rarely see one another so you get the feeling of renting the whole home.
