    This cozy room has plenty sunlight and especially suit for girls. A comfy backyard where you can chill, read books, or even play with two adorable cats of my neighbor's. I planted some fruits and veges in the backyard, so if you are lucky, you may pick and taste the super fresh tomatoes when you are here. There're four bedrooms on the second floor and one on the first floor. You will be using the one on the first floor so you can get enough privacy and won't get disturb from others.
    This is a quiet old house but with simple and modern furniture in the room. High speed WIFI and TV with Netflix are provided. I like music and art. So you will find some instruments like ukulele and drum set, and some paintings of mine in the house.
    We have really good neighborhood with most of them are students from art and music school of NIU.

  • The house is full with inspiring arts. Yiou is very very kind and sweetheart. The room I booked smelled fantastic - sent me in a deep sleeping. Definitely if I have a trip again to Dekalb I would think about Yiou’s house first.

    Across the street from NIU’s lagoon and original campus buildings
  • This house is amazing, cute and full of charm. Gwen was very accommodating and provided little touches like personalized key pouches and friendly greetings on the door. I felt very welcomed! The only negative from staying here was the house next door was throwing a late night barn burner party filled with college kids, which kept me up most of the night. Not Gwen’s fault that she has noisy college neighbors, but something to note if you’re coming in weekends

    Dan2018-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second month staying at Gwendolyn’s beautiful home, and I keep finding more things to appreciate about it. Highly recommended!

    Jay2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • The Safari Room in Gwendolyn's lovely old house met my expectations. Very small, but I didn't need much on this stay. The common areas are comfortable, with very thoughtful touches. The kitchen is easy to work in. Nice powder room downstairs which came in handy as there were 4 other guests during my stay sharing one upstairs bath. A plus - a very quiet corner in this campus neighborhood. If you're looking for a great local grocery store, Inboden's is not far away.

    Anne2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed my stay. THANK YOU

    Tony2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Host was very responsive. I stayed during summer session, so there wasn't anyone else in the house. The house was very clean. The bathroom was in the midst of renovations, but is fully functional and will be nice when completed.

    Matt2018-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • it was a great location if you are visiting niu and there were lots of thoughtful touches around the house, such as your name written on the door of the room you are staying in, soft drinks in a fridge, cereals and hot drinks in the pantry. however it wasn’t as clean as i personally would have liked. there were also lots of bugs and stains around the house.

    Jett2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • You cross the street and you are literally on NIU campus so you don’t have to worry about figuring out transportation. The level of comfort is amazing! Definitely go for this.

    Julien2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy homey place with amazing back yard and park across the street for four legged and little two legged ones! Hosts are responsive and kind. We'll be back!

    Mark2018-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family of 5 stayed at the comfy house while attending a softball tournament in Sycamore, IL. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable beds! We slept so well, which was essential since we were in the heat all day. The living spaces had the most comfortable pieces of furniture in them. Great for lounging around. We had enough room to spread around as a family. The kitchen was the best part. So many great appliances provided. We cook more than going out to eat being that it’s healthier and more economical, so having a well stocked kitchen is essential for us when traveling. This was above and beyond. The neighborhood is quiet and the little park right across the street was perfect for my 8 year old. I Highly recommend booking for your stay.

    Tiffany2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house was so cute! Old charm in an awesome location! There’s a playground across the street which is perfect for kids and a big backyard for pets. Everything was clean and communication was awesome!

    Trudianne2019-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean house in a nice neighborhood with all the amenities that you need including air conditioning and tv with streaming shows (netflix amazon etc). We will stay here again if we are in town, and the price is a great value. Key code entry and friendly hosts contacted us to make sure we had everything we needed. A+

    Daniel2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • They were great hosts, the description on the website was very exact incorrect, communicated through the platform quickly, this is a lovely place and I’d recommend it.

    Ross2019-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Close to NIU, great landing space for a small family if you are in town to see your kids.

  • The room is great, nice decoration, nice bed to sleep in, you have an iron and tv too! The only thing I would change is the bathroom’s door, It does not fit well leaving a slit, so someone can see you from the outside if you’re using the toilet or the bathtub.

    Fernando2018-07-31T00:00:00Z

    Rahul2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gwendolyn’s space is stylish and she adds so many thoughtful touches! There is a charger for your phone on the desk, a basket of DVD’s (more in the living room), a Keurig machine to help you start your day off right, and fluffy towels. The house is on a corner, and I became confused as to which driveway went with the house. Very easy check in process, and very conveniently located next to the university and within easy walking distance of restaurants.

    Our home was built in 1859 as a farm house and was added on to in the 1880’s to make room for the grandmother to come and live with the family. Her space is where you will be staying. It is spacious, it has its own entrance and private porch, and an attached bathroom and closet. It’s comfortable, private and alongside the driveway where you can park. We are located in the heart of town and you will find wonderful dining and shopping just a few blocks down the tree lined street.
    Your room has a queen sized bed, a tv, wing chairs, a desk and a large table. Your bags can be kept in the closet and your bathroom has a shower. You will have room to settle in and relax. You will have seating on your porch and would be welcome to sit in our yard. Our neighborhood is very quiet.
    We have lived in our home for over 30 years and have appreciated our town and our location so much. We are close to downtown Sycamore. It’s a wonderful town of about 18,000 people. So it’s not large but it is charming and has everything. We are 3 blocks from really good restaurants and cafes, antiques shops, the local movie theater, and interesting vibrant shops. Our house is near churches and the courthouse and a park. We have a great location. Sycamore is 4 miles from NIU, and 25 minutes from the Amtrack station in Elburn. We are about a 90 minute drive into downtown Chicago.
  • The living space is very inviting and loved the private access so we didn’t have to bother the wonderful hosts. The space is exactly as described and we were so surprised with the spaciousness of the rooms. Immaculate, lots of room, close access to everything in the area. Anyone would love their stay here and trumps any hotel in the area by a long shot! Thank you, Ron and Mary.

    Karen2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious accomadations in a lovely well kept, clean, historic home. Very gracious accommodating hosts. We loved our stay!

    Karen2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Mary and Ron's place is everything they describe and more. The location is perfect for a stroll to several fine restaurants. I felt right at home in this peaceful setting. Thanks for sharing.

    Shawn2018-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Mary and Ron are the best hosts! What a great house - loved all the extra touches! Excellent stay and highly recommend

    Debbie2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful stay with Mary and Ron. We had all the privacy we needed but they were just a knock away. They were so welcoming and warm, inviting us into their kitchen for coffee or cake several times (which we took them up on and loved!). Mary bakes some irresistible treats, and made sure we lacked nothing. Simply a lovely couple, I wouldn't mind going back just to see them! And what can we say about the room?! It was just beautiful and so comfortable like the home itself, in the historic district of town. Anyone deciding between a hotel or this lovely home...skip the hotel, stay with Mary and Ron. You won't regret it.

    Gary2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Mary & Ron share their home with you as if they have known you for a long time. We felt "at home" upon our arrival. We could come & go with complete privacy, but if anything was needed they were right there. The definition of hospitality.

    Lynda2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Most amazing accommodations in historic Sycamore! Perfect for visiting family & friends or checking out a play at NIU!!! I absolutely loved my hostess she is very precious & gracious! They made me feel very welcome & part of the family! I couldn’t love my accommodations more! Clean & wonderful!

    Tj2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mary & Ron are amazing Hosts! They make sure you feel welcome & at home! They make our journey complete & insure that we have rest when we need it & tips when we require those as well! We love our Sycamore “Home Away from Home!

  • We stayed with Roberta while helping our son get settled into his new digs at NIU. Convenient to everything in Dekalb and a half hour from the Metra train in Elburn. Roberta and Bill are gracious hosts, quick to respond to needs. Adequate accommodations for a pleasant stay and we will return.

    Daniel2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Two of us stayed here, and we were blown away by the incredible hospitality we were shown. The hosts were very good with responding to our communication, and they made it clear that we were welcome to interact (or not interact) with them as we were comfortable. Especially given that the Airbnb living area is the basement, which is semi-opened to the rest of the house, we were afforded a very reasonable amount of privacy and consideration! There were water bottles, plenty of towels, toilet paper, etc. and even a basket of snacks when we arrived. Excellent hosts and a very comfortable stay, especially for a shared space.

    David2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a short stay, but a great experience. Very understanding our situation and constantly changing check in time. Very friendly and welcoming. We though the bed was comfortable enough and we slept well. Very convenient layout and access to private shower. Overall great experience and we plan on staying on our way back home!

    Jayme2018-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very spacious and clean. It locates at NIU campus, so if you are visiting friends on campus or come here for any tests, it will be very convenient. Communication with Tom was very smooth and check in process was easy. The apartment was very good and I have nothing to complain about it. There are two concerns about the surroundings: first, the neighbor upstairs was very noisy, I believe they had at least two kids, they were still running around and shouting after 1 in the morning, and I had problem falling asleep. second, out of the windows of both bedrooms, there were night lights hanging right above the window and the light came through the windows and shades and made bedrooms very bright during night. So if you like sleeping in dark, this might be a concern. It was not a big problem to me though. In general, this is a clean, spacious, and a nice place to live in.

    Cicy2018-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely clean, very nice and simple, IKEA decorated apartment. Lots of space! Bed is a on the soft side, so an upgrade to a firmer mattress would help the back. Towels seemed brand new. Wish there were a couple of items added such as wastebaskets in the bathrooms, and a hairdryer. Kitchen was stocked with dishes, utensils, and spices, plus coffee, filters, sweetener, and creamer. Great for the morning after a late arrival. Perfect location right across the street from the NIU Campus! Need stronger WiFi as the single was weak on the network provided, and when we could pick up campus WiFi it dropped often. Great value having a whole apartment vs. a standard hotel room.

    Amy2018-10-08T00:00:00Z

    Nestled on a farmette, this farmhouse is located 3 miles west of Northern Illinois University and 4.5 miles from DeKalb, Illinois. Enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the front and back porches. The farmhouse has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a full-size kitchen. A washer and dryer are located in the basement. Two TVs, two DVD players, and a selection of DVD’s are also provided. Also included are Dish satellite TV and internet (wifi).
    This is an older farmhouse that can be drafty at times! The central furnace, A/C, and provided blankets will help keep you comfortable on windy days. The house sits on 10 acres of land that was once a working farm. We are working hard to make it a working farm once again. Please be safe! There will be some friendly farm animals in or near the farm buildings.
    City conveniences are nearby -- grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, movie theaters, etc...!
  • Bill's place is an older farmhouse with a lot of preserved original detail. We enjoyed having access to a variety of family-friendly board games and stuffed toys - our toddler was constantly entertained. We found the house to be well-equipped with everything we needed for a two-night stay. Keep in mind that it is situated close to a busy road and if you are a light sleeper, you may hear the traffic.

    Polly2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at Bill's farmhouse. We arrived a little early and Bill was very quick to check and make sure everything was ready and let us get settled in early. We met our daughter from Chicago and had Thanksgiving at the farmhouse. It's a work in progress, we look forward to seeing the progress next year!

    Donna2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Bill’s rustic farmhouse was an amazing stay! I would totally recommend anyone who wants to stay away from the bustle of the city. It’s within drive-able distance to a few state parks and that helps if anyone wants to go for a hike.

    Vishaal2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was a nice rustic farmhouse. The kitchen and bathroom were barebones, so if you think you need it, bring it with you. We enjoyed our stay.

    Classic Mid Western farm house built in the 1800's though completely renovated. My home is in the country just south of Dekalb, Illinois and approximately 5 miles from the campus of NIU.
    The home is surrounded by classic mid-western farm land, miles and miles of it.
  • Peaceful place. Location is quite wonderful, far from city noises and yet not too far from the city itself. Would definitely recommend.

    1 of 4 Private bedrooms in a charming historic home. All 4 bedrooms are listed on AirBnb. This bedroom has a double bed, TV & DVD player. Upstairs bathroom is a shared bath with walk-in shower and jet tub. There is an additional powder room on the first floor. Guests have access to kitchen and public spaces. Home is within walking distance from downtown DeKalb, and right next to NIU's lagoon.
    The home was built in 1906 and has many of the original details, such as pocket doors and cove moulding but it has been updated to provide modern comforts
    Across the street from NIU’s lagoon and original campus buildings
  • I would highly recommend this place for people traveling to Dekalb . Gwendolyn is very responsive and she responds very promptly . The place was clean and very near for ILTES exam center. We had a pleasant stay at her place. Only one suggestion for Gwendolyn , the latch in the shared bathroom is not proper , something you can improve for future guests who share the bathroom. Otherwise , I found your place upto the mark and exactly as explained in the description . I highly recommend to stay at her place Vivek

  • Gwendolyn's place was great and comfortable. It was clean and I liked the overall decor of the house. The boards on the bedroom doors were very convenient and everything went well!

    Pranjal2018-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute place. Close to campus. Easy checkin. I stayed for an entire semester while working as visiting faculty at the university and it was really convenient. Gwendolyn was very responsive even though not on site.

    Elizabeth2019-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful value. Nice, residential street right next to NIU campus. Plenty of good areas for walking. There’s a big whirlpool tub on the second story. plenty of tea and coffee, hot chocolate.

    George2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a sweet place to stay! The owner has thought of just about everything- great touches everywhere. Our room was comfortable, the other guests were quiet and friendly. We cannot praise the accommodation enough for the low price of a night’s stay! Don’t hesitate to book!

    Susan2018-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Nice charm but unacceptable living conditions. Don't do it. I

    Zabrina2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • I really love staying here. Gwendolyn is so accommodating and the house is really special. I will try to book another visit here in the future. It’s my go-to when staying in Dekalb.

Kitchen has nice appliances, with plenty of plates, utensils, and pans. Living room has large couch and multiple chairs. Formal dining area and 4 season porch. Pink bathroom with built in vanity (walkin shower, and tub) . We did not use basement,but it had another bed and sitting area. Also, basement had another full sized refrigerator.

    Janet2018-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. The outdoor space and the park in the backyard were perfect for our two families. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed.

    Eric2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We love the house very nice and secluded and had a beautiful backyard with a grill and TV! Great place for a small private getaway and you won’t be bothered. David was a pleasure to meet and Denise was easy to communicate with! Beautiful house!

    Juan2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful back yard.

    Kathy2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is an incredible home with one full bath and one half bath. There is many indoor places to gather, a full kitchen with everything you could need, and a large outdoor pavilion with grills, tables, furniture and ceiling fans. There was plentiful towels, washcloths and kitchen towels. She was very responsive to any questions we had. A perfect home away from home!

    Pam2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with very interesting styling. Denise was great to help us when we needed to extend a night.

    Brandon2018-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • A++, tons of room, lots of beds, very communicative/responsive host. Someone even plowed the driveway before we got there in winter!!!

    Chad2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place right by Northern Illinois University to be able to have a group of people hang out and have dinner together and be able to play games. Only an hour and a half from downtown Chicago, this place was awesome! We had a blast!

    Full apartment directly adjacent to the Northern Illinois University campus
  • Great space and value for the price! Would stay again!

    Mark2018-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Roomy place and good location!

    Vanessa2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and value. Just needed better attention to cleaning.

    Kelly2018-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is in a good location, especially if you have business on campus. The staff are nice and helpful. The amenities are basic but do the job. The walls seem very thin, so I would take that into account if you are traveling with children... Overall, I would recommend this place to others visiting Dekalb.

    Bergen2018-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great rental space. Plenty of bathrooms for each bedroom. I was a little difficult to find the location was great, close to the convention center.

    Christina2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great space. So close to campus. Very clean and easy to find. We were unsure about parking but with Visitor's Parking lot and Campus Life Building so close there was no major hassle.

    Gabriel2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great to have a full bath attached to each bedroom. Spacious kitchen.

    This is a very quiet family neighborhood. Grocery stores(Hy-Vee and Jewel), parks, shopping in quaint town of Sycamore, golf is nearby. Our home looks like a prairie home outside, but is beach-like inside. Only about an hour away from Chicago and less than that to Ohare airport.
    Guests can enjoy our entire home ( except master bedroom closet and garage). Please enjoy our home with the comfort of no shoes!
  • This immaculate house was a real treat when we visited NIU for the weekend. The house was comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations!!

    Jennifer2019-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely house. Stylishly furnished. Very nice place, nearby the city centre and nearby Elburn to catch the train to Chicago.

    Our home is quiet. Once you walk through the doors, it feels like you've have completely escaped the hustle and bustle of every day busy life. We have nothing but trees and cornfields to look at out the windows. We are less than 5 minutes away from grocery stores, walgreens and most places deliver food to us. We do request that single travelers are female because we do have quite a bit of shared space. Groups and couples are okay. If more room is needed, we can always supply sleeping bags and/or air mattresses as well. Breakfast can be served if requested in advance.
    It's a very quiet neighborhood on end of town. We are basically our own community. It's very safe. Kids are always playing outside. There isn't any thru traffic, so we never hear any horns, engine braking, etc.
  • We spent only one night at Melanie's place and had a restful stay. Everything is as discribed. Upon our arrival Melanie had already prepared an airmatress as the bed is pretty small for two. Last but not least the two kitties are very cute and cuddly. :)

    Irene2018-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very much enjoyed my stay at Melanie’s place! My hosts were very accommodating and interesting. Their home was sparkling clean, uncluttered and tastefully decorated.

    Aubrieta2019-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • I came to town for a test and stayed in Melanie’s place for a night. Great location, quite and comfortable stay. I would recommend Melanie’s place!

    Xinyi (Crystal)2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best room and owners. Very hospitable, friendly and sociable people. Room and house are perfect! We felt at home. Thank you! Next time, we'll stop there. Advice for travelers. If you see this room take it and do not even think.

    Sergei2018-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were super helpful and accommodating given the short notice of my visit. It was a very comfortable place to sleep.

    Mo2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The edge of town is right and in the best way possible. Melanie's loveable two cats always met and escorted us in. The AC was a Godsend. 10/10 would book again.

    David2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • I usually commute to class but needed to stay closer to campus while working on some big assignments. It's a twin bed in a kid's room with a small private bath. I was able to study on the desk, it was exactly what I needed and the hosts were very nice.

    Lauren2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly, easy check in, very clean and nice place. I will choose this again when I get around.
