Located 15 miles east of Springfield just off Interstate 72 for 3 1/2 miles you will find a beautiful country retreat. It is a fully furnished log home that blends rustic pieces with antiques that gives the cabin a truly country atmosphere. The cabin has a wrap around porch with seating that overlooks the pond. If you like quiet and nature you will love staying here. Just down the road about 3 miles is an 18 hole golf course (The Oaks Golf Course). Beautiful well maintained course.
“Oh boy. I didn’t think it would turn out so great! We booked the cabin for 4 people and a 1 night stay. All of us immediately regretted that we hadn’t booked longer. The surroundings are amazing and well kept. The pond had some amazing fish and the host’s brother even invited us to enjoy the fish feeding session and it was awesome! You can tell the host has taken care of almost every detail possible and has added little personalised touches for your stay too! Bonus was we were able to cook 3 meals in the kitchen thanks to the equipment they had. My only gripe was that the lawn chairs had rusted out so there weren’t any outdoor seats for us to use. No biggie cause we brought picnic blankets! I’m sure this issue will be resolved soon! A 5/5 retreat from Illinois, especially if you’re planning to visit Springfield like we were!”
We are Clean Freaks! following CDC guidelines, we do all our own cleaning. No one can do a better job. A historic mid-1800's building on the court house square in Petersburg, Illinois. Guests will enjoy the entire apartment-loft which includes a private queen bedroom with reading area and private bath. The grand room is much like an urban loft with full kitchen, dishwasher, 1/2 bath, washer/dryer and comfortably accommodates sleeping for up to six guests (airbeds, pull-out sofa).
“This place is absolutely amazing. It has a vibe and atmosphere that is drenched in history, yet feels rustic and cozy. Having grown up in Petersburg it was heartwarming to step out side the door onto the town square and take an evening stroll up the bluffs and observe the amazing Victorian architecture of the town. David has everything so conveniently set up that there was not a moment where I was scratching my head and wondering where something I needed was. Most importantly David was very thoughtful in communicating to us that they follow CDC guidelines when cleaning. The flat was literally spotless. If you find yourself in this part of Illinois a stay at The Flat is mandatory. I cannot wait to come back for a more extended stay!”
This beautiful studio apartment is located on the second floor of a historic Victorian home, built in 1890. It’s a short walk to the Illinois State Capitol and a 10 minute drive to the Medical District, downtown Springfield or the Abraham Lincoln sites. Cozy up in the foyer with a good book or relax on the huge open front porch. There’s a kitchenette with a microwave, Keurig and mini fridge. When you are ready to relax, there is a Smart TV with HDTV and a Blu-ray player in the living room.
“What a fantastic find this apartment was! I was traveling for work and was really just delighted to find that this place was available. It was quiet, spacious, comfortable, warm and beautifully styled. Everywhere I looked, there was something really interesting to look at and enjoy! The apartment itself has kept some stunning elements of the historic home (transom windows with mechanisms, stained glass windows!, stunning woodwork) but the style is overall fresh and modern. The apartment was very clean and during this time when we’re all being careful, I felt like I had nothing to worry about. The entrance at the front of the house was private to my apartment. I had a key code to get in which made arrival/departure easy. Claire was exceptional. She was really responsive, sincerely helpful (I had a few questions particular to my stay) and incredibly understanding (gah! I broke something on my way out the door!) That apartment is also close to downtown and a super great Thai restaurant called Magic Kitchen. I got take out and happily ate it at home. Check them out too! I couldn’t have been happier with my stay.”
