About the owner: We were both born in Kankakee County and raised in Manteno. We like it so much that we have never left our home town. We are volunteers in the community and help manage the Manteno Golf Club & Learning Center. We have been honored at St. Joseph Church as Family of the Year, and in our community as 'Citizens of the Year' in 2012. Both of us are retired from our careers (chemist and mailcarrier) and enjoy hosting people from all over the world at our vacation rentals. We hope you'll choose Manteno for your next get-away!
