Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This loft in a quaint country barn offers balcony views of a sunrise over the meadow straight from your master bedroom or a night sky full of endless stars. The second bedroom offers a full size bed with additional overhead bunk. DISH T.V., WiFi, a well stocked kitchen, and a country breakfast of eggs, toast, butter and coffee are provided...all in a quiet neighborhood about 8 miles from historic Carthage, IL and approximately 25 miles from Nauvoo, IL or 25 miles from Macomb, IL.

The space
I had to change my original summary of why this space is unique after hearing reflections of guests....seems like the country lane that dips into the hardwoods rising out to reveal a hidden neighborhood filled with nature's tranquility. A variety of wildlife are often seen enjoying the habitat. Staying at the barn is like all the benefits of camping along with the benefits of a good nights sleep!

Where you’ll be

Carthage, Illinois, United States

My home is down a secluded lane nestled in the hardwoods with 2 other houses that are owned by family members. This community is very safe as throughout the day a variety of family members are keeping an eye on things. Because the area is so secluded it is a great escape for the hustle and bustle of the city. That is probably what guests seems to appreciate the most ...the tranquility and simplicity of this locale.

I live in rural Illinois and make a living as an elementary school principal. I love to travel with my family and have enjoyed many airbnb experiences. I decide to take a leap of faith and give hosting a try as well.

During your stay
My home is nearby and so someone in my family is usually available to assist with anything you are in need of...especially late afternoon and evening. We're outgoing people and know the area well and would be happy to give you the scoop on all the local attractions.
We are very familiar with Mormon history for our guests visiting Nauvoo. White Tail deer graze in our yard as a pre-game show for hunters. Stars delights our friends escaping the city lights. The Lake Linda loft has something different to offer guests.
