Travel back in time to the private Pullman train car, the Constitution. Built in 1905, it served as "Air Force One" for presidents Harding and Wilson. The original car consists of four state rooms, an observation deck, a dining room, and a galley. Two large living rooms with fireplaces, a master bedroom and bathroom have been added on. When the president of Illinois Railway Museum visited, he said it was the most well-preserved Pullman train car in the U.S.

The space
The train car sits atop a bluff overlooking the beautiful slow-moving Big Rock Creek. Beyond the creek is a floodplain full of two hundred-year-old oak trees and an occasional eagle or two! The traincar has a very country feel.

The beds in the original train car are on the small side- message us for more information :) Take a virtual tour by copying the link in the first picture.

Guest access
The pool is accessible in the summer months. Reach out for more information.

Other things to note
We hire someone to look after the place. His name is Arne and he lives in the apartment above the garage on the property. You will most likely not come in contact with Arne but he's a good presence if needed.

I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and currently teach at the grade school that I attended. I work with 3-6 year old children in a Montessori school. My favorite book is Americanah and my favorite food is dried mangoes. I'm a very clean and respectful guest.
