Explore Savanna and the surrounding areas while enjoying the comforts of this quaint victorian home just 2 blocks from the working waterfront of the Mighty Mississippi. Watch the river barges load at the granary, count the train cars, and enjoy the river from Marquette Park. 1 block from Main St, 5 minutes south of Mississippi Palisades State Park, 5 minutes north of the Great River Trail, the marina and the loading point for CSavanna kayak and tubing adventures.

The space
Built in 1898 by the owner of the lumber yard and mill, our GuestHouse has beautiful wood work, hard wood floors and a lovely spiral stairway. While it boasts of being the first home in Savanna to have indoor pluming, we have recently restored the 3 bathrooms to make them lovelier than ever. Each of the 3 bedrooms creates an inviting retreat after a full day of exploring the local sights and sounds.

From the foyer, ascend the gentle spiral staircase to the second floor where two comfortable bedrooms await. The yellow and blue bedrooms share a large bathroom with double sinks, clawfoot bathtub and a luxurious shower. The green bedroom and it's private bath can be accessed by ascending the steeper staircase just inside the side entrance. All three bedrooms have white noise machines for a good night's sleep even when the train's engineer is wide awake.

The third full bathroom is conveniently located downstairs off the kitchen. In 1902 when the first bathrooms came to Savanna, they were placed wherever they could find the space. We believe this downstairs bathroom was once the kitchen pantry.

Enjoy breakfast on the enclosed sun porch just off the kitchen, we affectionately call it the French Bistro. Love to cook and want to experience the dinners of a by-gone era? Then prepare a meal in the well equipped kitchen and serve it in the formal dining room which has seating for eight. And for those days when it is just too beautiful to stay inside, there is plenty of outdoor seating, for dinning or just enjoying the fresh air.

The living room is the perfect place to gather as it has plenty of seating for lively group discussions, intimate heart-to-heart talks or watching the latest movie using your favorite movie subscription.

Where you’ll be

Savanna, Illinois, United States

Savanna is the perfect jumping off point for adventurers of all kinds. Summer: Rock climbing and hiking are just 5 minutes away at Mississippi Palisades park, kayaking and tubbing on the Mississippi and Maquoketa Rivers, biking and walking on the Great River Trail, bird watching all along the river. Winter: Snow shoe hikes, ice fishing, snowmobiling. Savanna is also an amazing place for those who love to ride motorcycles as it is the home of Poopies, the go-to destination for food, drink, music and an experience you won't soon forget. Motorcycles line Main Street most summer days for the cool drinks and hot live music. For those who want a nice dinner out, my favorite place is Circa 1888, with its gluten free and vegetarian options, there is something for everyone. Summer also means ice cream, so cross the ally behind the GuestHouse to Savanna’s very own Shivers Ice Cream Shoppe. While there, be sure to get a picture with the largest ice cream cones this side of the Mississippi! Not much for eating out, then shop Sullivan's Foods just 7 blocks away. With so much to do in Savanna, you will want to return often.

My husband, Rodney, and I love traveling, bird watching, kayaking and rock climbing. We have a deep appreciation and respect for the hosts that have opened their homes to us. We have had such wonderful experiences that we decided to join the hosting family. We have put such loving care into updating EastHaven Guest House that we hope all those who stay here enjoy it as much as we do.
