Property description

This 3bedroom 2 bath ranch has the feel of a cottage in a smaller town.

When the day is done, it also provides a nice retreat within which to kick back, take off your shoes and unwind.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Gordon and Tammy are originally from the Peoria area, but have lived near Springfield since getting married in 1991. Gordon retired from a career in law enforcement in 2010, and in 2012 they bought their first rental property in Chatham. They have four children, three of whom were adopted and are still at home.

Why the Owner Chose Springfield Lake Shore Improvement, Springfield, IL, USA:
This house was selected due to its close proximity to their residence, the quality of the school district, and the fact that it reminds them of their home growing up, and their grandparent's home. The layout of the house as well as the era both bring back great memories. For two years, the house had been unfurnished and rented out on an annual basis. In February of 2015 it was transitioned into a fully furnished home for rent by visitors to the area. It's not quite a bed and breakfast, but they still get to provide warm hospitality for their guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
They love the peaceful feel when they walk into the house. There are times when they will take time to go to the house to sit and read, and Gordon has confessed he has taken a nap or two there as well. The kitchen is spacious, as are the bedrooms and living room. It's a comfortable place to relax.
