This newly renovated 2-bedroom, 1-bath main floor unit offers contemporary comfort within a historic, 19th century gem. Located less than a block from downtown Savanna's Main St. -- and the mighty Mississippi River within eyesight -- restaurants, bars, shops, and entertainment are just steps away. Amenity highlights include: galley-style 3-season room, fully equipped kitchen, central air, 1-car garage, WiFi, washer/dryer, smart TV w/classic Nintendo (that's right, old school Mario), and more.

The space
This newly renovated unit features two large, tastefully decorated bedrooms -- one with a king size bed, the other with a queen and twin rollaway (upon request). The fully stocked and equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, stove/oven, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, kitchenware, and countertop seating, perfect for guests that wish to cook. Washer and dryer is in-unit for your convenience. Bathroom has one shower (no tub) -- while the bathroom is a good size, some may find the shower space slightly on the tighter end. The living room features seating and a smart TV with a classic Nintendo system loaded with hundreds of old-school games from your past. The dining room consists of a dining table and bar. A built-in work station is located in the main hallway. A classic galley-style 3-season room is attached to the unit (please note, you need to exit the front door to access the room). While street parking is abundant, a 1-car garage is available for guests. Cleanliness is our highest priority, including special attention to high-touch areas, washing of all bedding between guests, and recurrent UV light treatment of furniture and other surfaces.

Book longer and save! Our unit is perfect for long-term stays, and we offer progressive discounts for four-day, one-week, two-week, three-week, and monthly stays.

Where you’ll be

Savanna, Illinois, United States

Named no. 4 in the USA Today’s 2020 “Best small towns for adventure”, Savanna is your sweet spot for nightlife and outdoor adventure. This unit is located steps away from downtown Savanna. If live music is your thing, your in luck, as the town's plethora of bars regularly host bands, and featured bands often play outside right on the sidewalk of Main Street. Other downtown activities include axe throwing, paranormal investigations, and an old-time movie theater. Hop in the car and explore nearby charming towns like Galena and Mt. Carroll, or cross the border and explore Iowa (just minutes away). Seeking outdoor adventure? Savanna, situated on the Mississippi River, is home to Mississippi Palisades State Park, and, for bikers and hikers, is the starting (or ending) point of the 60-mile plus Great River Trail. Options to rent bikes, watercraft, and other outdoor adventure gear are available.

"Born to be wild, Savanna’s stunning scenery along the Mississippi River is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts and bikers alike in Northwest Illinois."
- Jay Jones, Chicago Tribune, May 6, 2021

"Put on your shades, casual clothes and sunscreen for a day on the River! Once you are back on dry land... freshen up and then head out to take in the fun atmosphere of downtown Savanna... that usually includes live music."
- Enjoy Illinois

"Mississippi Palisades State Park in Savanna is like a less populated Starved Rock. The craggy rock formations and dramatic views will make you wonder if you're really still in Illinois."
- Samantha Yadron, Chicago Magazine, January 11, 2021

"Savanna... is a hidden jewel. You could almost imagine being in the Appalachians or even the Rockies, only without those pain-in-the-ass mountains blocking the view of the sky. This is a part of the Prairie State that no one but a local would recognize as Illinois."
- Ted Cox, Chicago Reader, May 30, 2018
