Our home is called the Little White House by the River, and offers a quiet place to stay that is literally a stone's throw (if you've got a decent arm) from the back waters of the Illinois and Sangamon Rivers.

The space
Whether you're in town for business, to visit family and friends, or you're a hunter, our home has plenty to offer. The house is family friendly/ready, and for those traveling with infants or toddlers, a pack and play, high chair and a stroller with 10-inch wheels are kept on site. The toilet is equipped with a built-in toddler seat.
While there is only one bedroom in the house, a loveseat/with a pullout double bed, and two twin-sized roll-a-way beds provide sleeping accommodations for up to 6 people.
A large yard, offers plenty of room for kids to play, and a large graveled driveway offers plenty parking space for pickups pulling boats or trailers.
The home also offers a outdoor fire pit, 6-burner gas grill and even a raised kennel for the dog.

Where you’ll be

Beardstown, Illinois, United States

The Little White House by the River sits in a quiet neighborhood. The home's large yard puts lots of space between neighbors and guests, and the peace is disturbed (under normal circumstances) only by the sounds associated with passing traffic (loud music or engine noise.) A railroad track passes within 1/4 mile so guests will hear the sounds of passing trains.

My wife, Deb, may both be retired, but we're far from expired. Deb is a retired grade school teacher, while I am retired from having been a career police officer and military officer. The Little White House by the River is the home Deb picked out for us before we were married, while I was stationed in Korea with the Air Force. It has been part of our lives for more than 40 years and we're not yet willing to part with it, so we've decided to share it with others. We've tried to anticipate the needs of our guests and hopefully will be able to make a stay here carefree, enjoyable and memorable.
