Guest access
If you are an agritourism enthusiast you may choose to make it a "working" vacation by taking part in some of the cultivation of the trees, grapes, and gardens. You will have full access to a pond where you can relax and enjoy swimming and using the waterslide, trampoline, zip swing, and sand beach.

If you enjoy trap and skeet shooting, we have that as well.

Stroll the garden and orchard and bike the surrounding rolling hills.

During cooler months, the hot tub is open and ready to soothe those tired muscles from the grind of life.

*****IMPORTANT***** The Office and outbuildings are not included in the standard rental. This is a working farm and there will be work taking place most seasons. The office may be used during the day as will the outbuildings.

Growing up on a farm in Central Illinois, I learned the value of hard physical work. It was a skill I wanted to impart to my kids so when the time came to build or buy, we chose to build our farm. We started on spring break week of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) by starting to clear for the shop site and driveway. We had budgeted a week but a month later we had accomplished the goal and the driveway and home site were ready to build on. The shop was started the week of Septemb (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and completed in December when the walls and ceilings were finished and painted over Christmas break. During that time, I couldn’t help but remember the stories I had been told about the building of the school I had attended in Moweaqua, Illinois and decided I would write the story of that project as my next book once the home was completed. The home was next, and as soon as the weather cleared in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , we started building the home, digging the footings in April. The main structure started to take shape in May, and by the end of July the home was dried in and ready to start the interior work as well as finishing the outside. By December we were painting the walls and finishing the floors…again almost all a family effort. A gigantic ice storm in late January of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) slowed the move date by a month, but in med February the family moved in and worked on completing the rest of the home. That summer, the front wall was built along with the large pond to the side of the home. Again you can find pictures of the “crew” that built the pond lined up with one son on each piece of equipment. The pond was lined with stone in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , a story you can find on our blog, and the pond drained and the walls restarted in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) In addition, the first of the raised mounds were built and the first front pond and bridge were built as well. The patio was also constructed during this time and the hot tub and patio were completed in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Two more mounds and an irrigation system were installed in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) saw the addition of the two acres which housed my office for a number of years and now serves as an overflow guest home. The secret garden was started in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , and completed in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) The wisteria gazeebo overlooking the pond was completed in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and made form scrap steel welded together, over 21,000 welds in all. Several walkways were installed and the driveway built using recycled bricks. The barn and metal shop were completed in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , and the solar panels were added in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) The first large planting of grapes occurred in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , and this past winter saw the clearing of an additional two acres for grape planting along with the clearing in front of the house for the new formal gardens and drive way. You can see son Peter demonstrating our technique for tree removal here. There are a large number of planned improvements to take place over the next decade. We hope you will enjoy the “fruits” of our labor as you relax Carolina style on the patio with a glass of wine in hand and let the sounds of the waterfalls pour over you as your troubles slip away.

During your stay
Interaction is limited, but someone will be available to help you during your stay. Again, its a working farm so staff will be performing work duties there during the day and the office is likely to be used.
