This vintage bungalow is bright and welcoming. Four bedrooms (great beds!), two baths, a spacious living area, and a fully-equipped kitchen provide a sense of home and comfort for your family and friends. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are supplied. The screened-in front porch is a pleasant space to relax, and the back yard fire pit invites everyone to gather for memorable evenings. Guests often see wildlife on the large, park-like property. Conveniently near town and many local recreational activities.

The space
You’re sure to note both the pride Dixon takes in its history and its contemporary energy. The King family has had its own place in Dixon history ever since the house and farm were given to the owner’s grandparents as a wedding gift in 1915. And as a guest in the homestead, you’ll contribute to its ongoing vitality. We know you’ll enjoy your stay, and we hope you’ll want to return often.

Where you’ll be

Dixon, Illinois, United States

The Rock River is the centerpiece of Dixon, the hub of its history and a major attraction for visitors. The city’s downtown district is within walking distance of the house and has the distinction of being listed on the National Historic Register because of its architecture. You can eat out, shop and, if your timing is right, enjoy one of several annual city festivals.

The many options for outdoor recreation include boating, canoeing, kayaking, and water skiing on the river, or hiking, biking, horseback riding, and jogging on park trails. Lowell Park (200 acres) offers scenic drives, trails, a dedicated natural area and nature center, picnic shelters, playgrounds, and boat access. Meadows Park is a 567-acre open space along the Rock River that includes hiking trails and sports fields. Also worth your time and attention are three nearby state parks: Lowden State Park, Castle Rock State Park, and White Pines Forest State Park.
