About Cynthia Busse
As a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Illinois for over 30 years, I have seen a lot of homes, but this one is truly unique, and we have found that owning this home has been such a gift. The history is so unique and the character is so abundant. We are in a place where we are lucky enough to be able to share our experience with others and have chosen to do so. We hope that when you come here to visit you will be taken back in time and your visit here will become a fun adventure in itself. The surroundings are beautiful the experience unique. In our years of travel we have seen many B&B's, private homes and Inns and would hope that this would live up to all of your expectations.
Cynthia Busse purchased this House in 2006
Why Cynthia Busse chose Lemont
Of course, the beautiful city of Chicago is a short distance away and the attractions there are endless. We are also minutes away from the world famous Cog Hill Golf Course where the BMW Golf Championship Tournament is played. Water Fall Glen, 5 minutes away, is excellent for hiking and biking! The historic and quaint "downtown" area of Lemont is a sweet place to walk around and explore. If the yard isn't enough, there are two parks that are walking distance from this home so the little ones can have fun and get some fresh air!
What makes this House unique
Our Atrium is a beautiful place to sit and relax. The squirrels and the birds are right outside all the windows and no mosquitoes! Our Library with it's French Chandelier is another place to get lost for a day, and read a book, or play a game of checkers. After a long day, coming home and having this fully equipped kitchen to prepare a meal in, can be a nice trade off to a restaurant meal.

We rented this house so that our entire family could meet for Thanksgiving. The kitchen was great to use, and there was plenty of space to serve food and accommodate our family. We loved thinking about the historical events that had happened in this house, and even used the Victorian Christmas tree in the parlor to open up presents. Thanks for having this piece of history on VRBO!
Perfect Home for group traveling
Our ladies golf team share this home for 5 days during a golf tournament. It was perfect. Lots of space for everyone, very comfortable and well appointed. Would stay here again.
Trip back in time with modern convenience
As soon as we walked through the house, my whole family and I were taking videos and excited for the memories in the week to come. It was as if we were renting out the Clue Game. So cool and fun to just hangout at.
We stayed here when visiting the tourist sites in Chicago. I wanted a safe secure neighborhood with lots of room for the family and parking available. This place had everything I wanted and more. The house is gorgeous - all the charm of the 19th century with all of the conveniences of the 21st! Huge master suite, lots of room for a family, huge kitchen with high-end appliances, Everything was clean and in working order and the owner was super easy to work with. Location was great - charming small town with restaurants, groceries, pharmacies etc very convenient. Ample off street parking. Easy access to Chicago. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
