"The Farm" is located 7 minutes from Henry, IL and 30 minutes from Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks. This newly renovated farmhouse has a large front porch, hot tub, and 20 acres for walking and exploring- a perfect location for kicking back and spending time with friends or family! The space sleeps 12 in beds - 14 with the provided air mattress. The kitchen is ideal for large groups, with two sinks and dining seating for 12.

The space
We love spending time in our modern yet rustic farmhouse. We are equipped with WiFi, a hot tub, 20 walkable acres of forest, games, a fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of space for rest and relaxation!
The farm was owned by Josh's grandparents, who moved from Chicago to Magnolia in 1953. When Josh's grandmother passed away in 2016, Josh could not bear to see the farm leave the family. We purchased the farm a month after getting married, and rehabbed the farmhouse from Oct 2017-Oct 2019. The land is currently being used to farm hay, as we work to prepare the grounds for its original intent of organic farming.

Guest access
The farmhouse and surrounding land will be yours to explore! The closet in the mudroom and the "garage"- the blue building right next to the house- are kept locked.

Other things to note
*For guests with less than three positive reviews, we require a $500 refundable security deposit. You will be refunded the $500 after checkout, given there are no damages. (We completely understand that accidents happen! When we say "damages," we are not including minor things such as a broken plate, a minor spill, etc.) The funds are requested and distributed through Airbnb's secure website. To avoid this refundable charge, you may have another guest in your group -with three or more positive reviews- book with us.

**Please note, we are located in a rural area, surrounded by working farms. We take precautionary measures to eliminate bugs, but due to the location, it is possible you may see a few insects around the house.**

Raised in the suburbs of Chicago. Now a resident of the west side of Chicago. I work as a videographer and dream of someday making a feature film. In 2017, a month after getting married, my new wife and I purchased my family farm. We spent two years rehabbing the farmhouse- talk about an initiation into marriage! Our lives mirror the hustle and bustle that define Chicago- our friends say we’ve always got a project going on- so, a getaway to the farm is always a treat! There’s something about spreading out on the land, enjoying the pure sounds of nature, and sharing the space with friends and family.
