Where you’ll be

Carthage, Illinois, United States

I own one acre on a family farm of 1200 acres. My family is gracious to allow guests to hike the lake trails if they sign a liability waiver. The cozy cottage is off the main road and nestled in the woods along the lake. Full disclosure log cabin is nearby but I give my guests their privacy but am available for any concerns. There is also a barn that I rent to guests so it is possible for groups to come as well. The barn can sleep up to 10 guests between the two units.

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.
