About Tanya Walker and Melodi Walker McKeighan
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"!

Excellent place for family gathering
My family get together on Labor Day weekend was accommodated wonderfully by staying at the Walker Family Inn. Kitchen dining area space was excellent for the family to gather for breakfast every morning. Love the labeling of drawers for utensils too. Patio and basement were excellent for spillover, games and gathering to chat. Lots of space and nice touches in the bedroom areas as well.
Thank you so very much! We enjoyed being able to host your family reunion and are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Ample space with amenities for family quality time!
This lovely 4 bedroom is well kept and offers a rack of information of places to see and eat. Nestled in a nice community it is a relaxing home with amenities such a ping pong and pool table for quality family bonding time. Owners are very pleasant.
Thanks so much! We loved having your family stay and hope you visit us again.
You are wonderful guests!
This house is fabulous! It has vintage charm but is updated just enough so that it feels like home! It is impeccable clean, has plenty of room for a large group, is well stocked and the basement is amazing! With a pool table, ping pong and foosball, these is a lot for the kids to do! The downtown, adorable with cute shops and a grocery store, is minutes away. The owners are great, communicate quickly and were here to show us everything we needed to know about the house. We will stay here again when we come back to the area!
Thank you so much for the lovely review. We really enjoyed having you stay with us and appreciated the great communication we had with you. We do hope you can come back and stay with us again and have some time to enjoy our wonderful hometown.
Sincerely, Tanya Walker and Melodi Walker McKeighan
A wonderful location, in the heart of Amish country.
The house was clean and comfortable. It was quite quaint and very much a home with a lot of personal effects. The games room was excellent with ping pong, pool, darts and table football (foosball) which the kids loved, along with the wifi! The real star of the house is its location, a short walk to the town centre, Amish shops and restaurants. We loved Yoder's, a large Amish restaurant which was a great place to meet people. The whole town was very friendly. Tanya was extremely helpful and very responsive to any queries and met us when we arrived.
Overall we had a lovely stay for 2 nights and really enjoyed the house and location.
Thank you for the lovely review! We were happy to host you and are very happy that you enjoyed our wonderful hometown of Arthur!
Christmas In Arthur
We rented this property for my family get together in Arthur, IL. There were 8 of us staying there. Tanya was right on time at 4pm to get us checked in. This place was amazing. We were all very comfortable there. The house was very clean and definitely kid friendly. I cannot say enough positives about our stay there. We will definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to stay in Arthur, Illinois.
Great Sister/Girl Friend Weekend
