In the heart of Illinois' largest and oldest Amish community, Arthur is just 10 minutes west of Interstate 57 and Arcola on Illinois Rte 133. Conveniently located, we are 20 minutes from Lake Shelbyville, 50 minutes from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and just a few hours away from Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Louis. From Interstate 57, take exit 203 and head west towards Arthur on Rte 133.. It is about a 10 minute drive. In Arthur, turn onto Pine Street (it is directly in front of the high school). Go one block to Logan Street and turn right. Our house is the yellow cape cod on the corner of Spruce and Logan. If you are using a GPS to guide your way, the house address is: 39.711843,-88.468750

Explore the surrounding countryside and the many Amish shops that surround our village. The horse-drawn Amish buggies and teams of horses plowing the fields are a common sight. Step back in time to a slower pace of life and relax or enjoy one of our many festivals. Arthur's Freedom Celebration, Moultrie-Douglas County Fair, The Great Pumpkin Patch, Arthur Cheese Festival, Chet Kingery Bluegrass Festival and Mennonite Relief Sale are just of few events held throughout the year.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: Tanya Walker and Melodi Walker McKeighan invite you to enjoy and explore our hometown where "You're a Stranger Only Once"! We feel very fortunate to have grown up in small town America and enjoy the many amenities our village has to offer. You can walk or bike ride within minutes to the fair, fireworks, restaurants, schools, parks and downtown. You can also relax on the back patio or play pool or ping pong in our basement rec room. Built in 1951, we have called this "home" since 1968. It still retains it's beautiful woodwork, mid-century modern styling, arched doorways and many unique built-ins. Even though we don't currently live in Arthur, we come back many times throughout the year to visit friends, family and enjoy the festivals. It is and always will be "home"!

Why the Owner Chose Arthur, IL, USA:
Come stay at Walker Family Inn where "You'll always feel at home".
